Okay! Let me make this clear! If you live in a state where marijuana is illegal then you shouldn’t use cannabis every day. However, if you do live in a state where cannabis is legal then you have no reason not to. As a matter of fact it would probably be in your best interest.
Here are 5 reasons you should use cannabis everyday:
1. There are basically no negative consequences to using cannabis.
I mean the list of statistics that I can use here go on and on. No one has ever died from marijuana. Smoking marijuana has shown not to cause lung cancer. Marijuana is proven not to make you stupid. As a matter of fact, marijuana is shown to reduce lung tumor growth and to be a neuro-protectant. The only negative consequence that can come from using cannabis is that it is illegal, but if you live in a legal State that is no longer an excuse.
2. Smoking Cannabis Can Unlock Creativity.
It is no secret that creative types smoke cannabis. Ranging from Willie Nelson, to Thomas Jefferson, to Snoop Dogg almost every genre of popular culture has a cannabis user in it. People have been using marijuana for ages as a tool to free their minds, paint, write, or even to just get through the work day. Grab yourself a good sativa and try it for yourself. As a sativa fan myself, I can tell you that there is no better way to start the day!
3. Cannabis is Fun!
Granted, what is fun is subjective. Some people may not find marijuana use to be enjoyable. However, it is obvious that many people do indeed find joy in it. If you find joy in marijuana then there is no reason not to use it. And if you don’t then you have no reason to stop those who do!
4. Cannabis is Not Addictive.
One of my favorite quotes about cannabis come from Richard Neville. He said, “Is marijuana addictive? Yes, in the sense that most of the really pleasant things in life are worth endlessly repeating.”
Cannabis is just enjoyable. That is why people do it. Saying cannabis is addictive is completely misunderstanding the concept of addiction. Lives are ruined by addiction! Lives are enriched with cannabis!
5. One Could Argue that Cannabis is More Than Just a Safe Medicine.
Okay cannabis has no negative consequences! It has also been reasonably proven as a safe and effective medicine! But many people are making the argument now that we all need cannabis to live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. This idea is often referred to as The Endocannabinoid Deficiency. Briefly, this theory takes the idea of cannabis as medicine a step further and claims that cannabis can be used to prevent many of the disorders that it can treat as a medicine. By supplementing phytocannabinoids (like THC and CBD) into our endocannabinoid system we will be able to protect our brain from neurological disorders and boost our immune system. That’s right the Endocannabinoid Deficiency Theory is grounded in the idea that by supplementing with cannabis we are able to live healthier and fuller lives!
