How Cannabis Benefits the Seniors Using It

Cannabis is a popular drug among young people and it is also used by the older generation. For example, in the United States of America, the fastest growing medical marijuana users are seniors. Studies show this to be an upward trend and it looks set to stay that way. 

Cannabis comes from the plant cannabis sativa and it has several other names including; pot, weed, ganja, reefer, dope, among others. It can be used as a recreational drug and mostly for old people as one to help them cope with struggles or traumatic experiences hence the term, medical marijuana. It is prescribed by doctors.
