The holidays will soon be upon us and we can all expect to spend some quality time with family and friends. “Friendly” debates always happen around the holiday table and with the recent legalization of cannabis in Canada, we can expect this to be a hot topic. If you expect to attend a “conservative” dinner or two and do not want to find yourself without talking points, my friends from the various local cannabis shops, mail order marijuana depots as well as others I buy weed in Canada from have been kind enough to provide an arguing point or two.
As suggested by my friends from the best online dispensary in Canada, the benefits of medical marijuana is always a good place to start. There is a long list of conditions cannabis has been proven to help with such as cancer, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, arthritis, anxiety and general pain management so it is not only a drug for those looking to party. Unlike THC, CBD will not get you high and can even be taken as a daily supplement for general wellness. Unlike opioids, medical marijuana is not habit forming nor is it a gateway drug, rather it has been used as an exit drug for those dependent on harmful opioids.
If you have bought cannabis lately from a local cannabis shop, mail order marijuana depot or online dispensary in Canada you know you pay significantly more than when compared to buying from the guy on the street corner. Besides paying for the quality controls built into the supply chain, we also need to provide a cut to the government in the form of taxes. So not only does this benefit the cannabis consumer, it benefits the country as a whole.
Legal marijuana has been around long enough in Canada to prove that it does not corrupt youth and leads to irresponsible cannabis use, rather, it has been quite the opposite. The demographics from the best online dispensary in Canada show that the typical user is increasing in age with more and more working professional and parents trying the drug. Though those between the ages of 22 to 34 are still largest group, they are closely followed by those aged 35 to 52. This may be due to the fact that this group is educated enough to know cannabis does more good than harm and that it is a viable alternative to other medication to treat what ails their aging bodies.
Nevertheless, every family treats cannabis differently. If your parents were ones to indulge when they were younger their views would definitely be different from those who believe it be nothing but a toxic narcotic. If they are currently suffering from ailments of which tradition medication is no longer providing relief, then they would be more open minded to exploring new or alternative treatments and to hearing your side of the argument. As someone I buy weed in Canada from said, there is no need to proselytize—if it works for you and you are comfortable with where you stand, then that is all that matters.
