    Marijuana can be both a medicine and a recreational drug, but separating one from the other isn’t simple.
    According to the World Health Organization, marijuana is the most popular recreational drug worldwide. However, unlike many other recreational drugs, marijuana is widely used as a medicine as well.

    This fact, along with marijuana’s
    legal status, has led to much confusion over the differences between medical marijuana and recreational marijuana.

    If you’re feeling a bit puzzled yourself, here are a few things to consider.

    What’s the Difference Between Recreational and Medical

    Medical marijuana seeds and recreational marijuana seeds are different in many ways. First off, medical marijuana has high CBD content while recreational marijuana is more on the THC. CDB is the ingredient of marijuana that makes it medical. The higher the CBD, the lower the strength of high your marijuana can provide. THC, on the other hand, is another ingredient of marijuana and it is what’s making it psychoactive. Just because medical marijuana has high CBD content doesn’t mean that it has low THC content.

    Heroin/opium is used in both situation as well. The difference is the intent. Are you using a cocaine product because the doctor said so. Or because you think it would be fun?

    Also, if you have cancer or some other major health problem, and you are suffering chronic pain, you can weigh the benefits with the side effects, and it may be worth the risks.

    But, if you are healthy, the risks are too high, imho.

    Yes, that is how it should be. But, I only post this because people think medical marijuana is the same thing they buy from the homies on the block. Furthermore, they think that if doctors prescribe it, that means it must be safe enough to use recreationally. At least that's what I hear people say.

    For some reason, which I can't grasp, they stay stuck on "It's natural".

    I say, "There are a lot of poisons that grow naturally".

    Too much of anything overloading our systems becomes poisonous, eating 4 organic apples make you poop and four organic lemons make you vomit...
