Gender Differences

Research has shown that female rats react differently to THC than males, which may also translate to gender differences in how humans react to cannabis. They found that females had a higher tolerance to THC and were most sensitive to the effects of THC during ovulation. Ironically, women are often excluded from marijuana studies because of their fluctuating hormones.

Beer & Cannabis Are Cousins

The hops that are used in beer are from the same family of flowering plants as cannabis. That’s why marijuana bud and hops look so similar.

Scientists Are Unable To Create A Pill That Replicates Marijuana

Marijuana is often used for medical purposes, such as to aid digestive processes for terminally ill patients or reduce pain. More research needs to be done on cannabinoids and why they provide relief to many sick people. Because of this, scientists have yet to find a pharmacological replacement for marijuana. 

Marijuana Hasn’t Always Been Illegal In The U.S. 

While there have always been restrictions on marijuana, it wasn’t until the 1930s that it started to become classified as an illegal drug in some places. It was classified as a controlled substance act in 1970, under the Controlled Substances Act. This law effectively made marijuana illegal in America. 

Many states are legalizing both medical and recreational marijuana, and in 1996, California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis. In late 2016, California legalized recreational marijuana. Now you can order marijuana delivery here in San Francisco and the majority of states in the U.S. have legalized medical marijuana!

More Than 100 Million Adults Worldwide Use Cannabis

Marijuana is the most widely used drug in the world. Nearly a half of Americans have tried marijuana and more than 18million have used marijuana in the previous month.

40% Of Drug Arrests In The U.S. Are Marijuana-Related 

Despite the wide-spread legalization of cannabis, nearly half of drug arrests in the U.S. in 2018 were for marijuana-related offenses. There are more arrests for marijuana offenses than arrests for all violent crimes combined. More troubling, black Americans are nearly four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana-related offenses than white Americans, despite the fact that the rate of use is similar.
