Article link:  cannabis on the brain article

This little gem of an article is really interesting to me because I have been a user of cannabis for most of my life.  I think its finally safe to admit because most people in Canada are users, but not abusers.  I feel like cannabis is an extremely under-utilized medicinal herb, and I personally use it for insomnia which I have dealt with since I was a kid.  I find this article interesting because I know a lot of people that I would consider long-term users and they don’t seem to have any noticeable long-term effects from cannabis use.  I am extremely interested in the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes and hope to learn more in the future. I think moving to British Columbia will allow me to educate myself in the industry more, specifically in relation to medicinal cannabis dispensaries.  Hope you enjoy this article, keep researching because knowledge is power, and be aware and eat with care 🙂
