Medical Marijuana vs Recreational Marijuana

Generally when it comes to Marijuana, the public usually have a bad impression of it. However before the bad impression people had with Marijuana, the public used to have a good impression to it due to its medical applications. And as we know while Marijuana is usually known for its “recreational” purposes but since Marijuana also has an accepted positive side called the “medical” purposes we shall be discussing the difference between the two. This article isn’t going to be about whose better since you can’t really compare either that way, but we are list down the details of its difference. So let’s get started and discuss the details of Medical Marijuana vs Recreational Marijuana, shall we?

Medical Marijuana vs Recreational Marijuana

The Purpose

Any recreational marijuana activity is usually frowned upon due to probably just lack of orientation to that it’s just as harmful as a lot of different matters that are legal such drinking alcoholic drinks for instance. And just burning any plant in general and inhaling its smoke is usually not recommended even if it wasn’t marijuana.

The one clear difference between the two marijuana related activities is that while both are for the purpose to help, the sense of is different though. With recreational marijuana it’s the relaxation of the effects it has with our mind; medical marijuana on the other hand helps through medical applications.

Marijuana Application 

The Application

Different purposes have different ways to be applied. This is the same for medical and recreational marijuana activities. As we know recreational marijuana is done through smoking which burning of the dried marijuana leaves or ground marijuana leaves if preferred, the other way is through vaping which is using a device that burns the marijuana and hash oil in low temperatures.

Unlike recreational marijuana who only has two known ways to do the activity. Since medical marijuana has many medical applications, it also has many ways of applications such as adding marijuana into your cooking ingredients, applying it as oil or drinking it with alcohol solutions or water if you prefer. Of course the smoking and vaping also applies for medical purposes but it depends on what you are trying to apply it for.

Favored by the Law

The one obvious thing that both recreational and medical application of marijuana has is that it’s not generally acceptable. Recreational marijuana purposes is the one with the bad reception and for some people they will assume that medical marijuana purposes are just an excuse to smoke up some weed even though it has legit effects.

However for certain medical application of the marijuana is less frowned upon and more acceptable compared to recreational marijuana activities. As of the moment, medical marijuana is allowed in 25 states in US which is a huge number; of course the purpose of medical marijuana is acceptable.

There are only 3 known states that allow recreational use of Marijuana, one of them is Colorado. Even when they allow the recreational purpose of marijuana, they have restrictions and are quite strict when it comes to possession and when and where they allow the recreational marijuana activity.

Final Thoughts

The legalization of marijuana is mostly due to the medical applications of it more than the want of people for its recreational benefits. Though pushing the legalization marijuana is still difficult partly to the fact that one of its known medical applications is through smoking or vaping which is practically the same as doing the recreational activity of it, which is frowned upon by most who does not condone marijuana.

Due to the medical benefits it has though it’s managed to be legalized at least to a couple of places. Apart from Vaping and smoking, most of the medical marijuana application are quite safe. That is the key difference of Medical Marijuana vs Recreational Marijuana.
