Cannabis the cured dried flower of the Marijuana plant known as Bud. Smoking Cannabis has many health benefits an it provides immediate relieve but that relieve is only temporary. I find its use even on a recreational level to be very therapeutic but the method of smoking Cannabis is not effecient for treating serious illnesses. The process of smoking Cannabis reduces Cannabinoids by eighty percent and a small percentage of those Cannabinoids will end up in your blood stream. Some people think that vaporizing preserves Cannabinoids but it don't because vaporizers burn at 379 F. The only benefit is less carcinogens.
