Why Is Cannabis Better for You Than Opioids?

Medical cannabis is remarkably better for you than opioids. This doesn’t just come down to the specific effects on your body, but also to your long term health and your brain.

There is also the issue of the endemic opioid crisis in the USA at the moment. There are so many illicit and sometimes dangerous opioid-based drugs out there on the streets that people are dying every day from it.

In 2018, over 42 thousand people died from opioid-related overdoses, and almost half of them involved synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Being able to save countless lives through prescribing cannabis to patients is the greatest reward that any doctor can have.  

But before we can do that, we need to make sure that cannabis is definitely a better alternative. So, in what way is cannabis generally better for you than opioids?
