What Are The Positive Effects of Marijuana?

Marijuana Can Treat Some Cold and Wet Conditions

Today’s marijuana has a warm to hot and dry nature. That means we could potentially use it for treating some cold and wet conditions.

- A possible short-term therapy for treating certain types of respiratory allergies where the patient gets tons of drippy, cold mucous running out of her/his nose?

- For digestive issues, particularly ones where there’s a slow or non-existent appetite?

- For sexual inhibitions where a person has become cold and withdrawn sexually, or feels cut off from the world around her/him?

- A possible stimulant to creativity and communication?

- To help a person have a mental or emotional breakthrough if s/he is stuck in some way?

- To help with certain kinds of hernias and hemorrhoids if they’re related to cold and wet conditions?

It’s Better With Balance

Let’s remember that the primary instant side effect of marijuana is that it leaves a person stoned for several hours after s/he takes it, and that this is a strong incentive behind its popularity.

There are hundreds of alternatives to cannabis that don’t create a semi-psychedelic experience and are superior to using cannabis in every way. I would advocate using any of the alternatives first and foremost every time.

Not everybody has the range of treatment options that acupuncturists do.

Acupuncturists wouldn’t use an herb in isolation, especially an herb as volatile and toxic as marijuana. If a patient was already using cannabis for some reason, we would combine it with other herbs to enhance its positive qualities and diminish the negative ones.

Taoist medical practitioners knew about the qualities of marijuana, but they only used the seeds for medicine. They had their reasons for their preference not to use marijuana on a clinical basis.

Marijuana’s Positive Lure

What are the positive effects of marijuana?

Marijuana affects everybody differently. All we can do is describe the effects of marijuana. Those effects will be positive for some people and negative for others.

Initial effects:

Beautiful visions.

Making friends and bonding with new people.

Feeling the magnetism of their personality.

Having incredible clarity in their thoughts.

An increased appetite for life.

Creative visions.

A sense of sacred purification.

Spontaneous, creative expression of self.

Renaissance and rebirth in this life.

An absolute sense of motivation to put their plans into action with freshness and sensitivity to others.


Living in an eternal here and now.

Emanating a deep sense of awe and reverence.

Expanding beyond all sense of limitations.

Rooting themselves at the center of their being.

All Good Things Come to Pass

If a person doesn’t use marijuana in a balanced way, each of its positive effects may begin to get twisted and turn into its opposite. The marijuana syndromes can help people understand when this process is happening and give them the tools to correct it if it does happen.

We want the goal treatment to be to harvest the positive qualities of marijuana effects while they last. A person can do this to a large degree by staying as balanced as possible in the process. We can help them to achieve this goal.
