Now that marijuana is legal in Canada and many states in the USA, it’s time to become educated on the actual science surrounding this plant. I brought in PhD, Neuroscientist, Dr. Michele Ross to explain the truth and the evidence around “weed”. Is it really a drug? Can it actually treat disease? Is it safe to smoke or eat? What are the benefits and what are the problems with it? All of the questions are answered in this episode on HealthSimple Radio. Michele discusses her thoughts on smoking marijuana recreationally as well as the application of using it as medicine. We discuss the best ways to consume marijuana and how it can affect your sleep. She also provides the history of why there is so much confusion around this plant in the first place. Enjoy this very interesting episode of The HealthSimple Show.
