Throughout the history, people have been using cannabis for many different purposes. Many of those purposes were actually medicinal, they used it to heal people and help them recover. Researchers have found traces of cannabis use even in some Egyptian mummies. In Europe cannabis was also used for treating patients with various health issues such as sleep disorders, asthma, nausea and different types of pain.
These days cannabis is the most used drug in the whole world. However, a lot of countries have banned the use of this natural healing plant because some scientists think that it can have some unwanted side-effects such as other psychoactive drugs have. Of course, it can create an addiction, but there are lot more other things that are creating addiction and they don’t have any good effects on the human body like cigarettes. They are legal most likely everywhere in the world but people can only get sick from cigarettes.
Cannabis is legal in few countries, but there are levels of legality. Some of those countries only allow sick people the legal use of cannabis.
That is because they cannot find a better medicine from cannabis for some illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In Europe Germany was the first country that legalized cannabis for medical uses to treat patients. However, there are some countries that have totally legalized the use of it because they don’t see reasons why it should be banned if things like cigarettes aren’t.
Effects of Cannabis Use
A person that uses cannabis should get a relaxed feeling, any pain should decrease. Some of the psychomotor skills will be reduced and your reflexes will get slower.

Nowadays in some countries, you can buy cannabis from online pharmacies that have a license for selling it. You shouldn’t be able to buy any cannabis without the valid prescription from your doctor. In the UK cannabis is used to suppress some of the effects of the chemotherapies.
