New Study Shows Marijuana Really Can Replace These 5 Prescriptions [VIDEO]

A new study now published in Drug and Alcohol Review has concluded that cannabis is a prime candidate to replace five major prescription drugs that are heavily pushed by the pharmaceutical industry. Of all the drugs compared within the study, Marijuana is the only one with no recorded overdoses.

Prescription pain killers are responsible for 44 American deaths every day. Marijuana has been shown in clinical studies to provide greater pain relief and without the side effects that come with most prescription pain killers like Vicodin.

For some, Marijuana has also been documented as a successful anti anxiety medication that could replace pills like Xanax. While Marijuana is known to cause paranoia in some users, Indica strains of the plant can have a calming effect for some users. On the flip side, Sativa strains can be used effectively to treat ADHD and ADD, replacing medications like Adderall and Ritalin.

Maijuana's ability to cause drowsiness has helped establish the plant as a very effective sleep aid without the harmful side effects of other drugs like Ambien. Other users have reported that cannabis can also serve as a natural remedy to the blues, acting as an anti-depressant.
