Some people just want a simplified outlook of everything in life.
Whether it’s medical calculus or politics, multiple shirk at the thought of complexity.
The method of it is either too much for them mentally, or it’s simply easier to fall back on reductionism and willingly making things black and white when they’re legitimately often gray instead. For instance, for too long multiple people were completely against marijuana in every form. There was a large contingent of the population that was convinced that every part of marijuana use, be it recreational or medical, was terrible and also a public health crisis. But the research into medical use of cannabis has increased and a pressing tsunami of positive information has been published in the years since. For instance, the people I was with and I assume of the powerful benefit cannabis has for epilepsy and digestive disease sufferers, plus the amazing pain relieving effects of the cannabinoid CBD. It’s the legalization of CBD and hemp nationwide that has had the biggest positive outcome for the public perception of cannabis at large. Many have tried CBD products and had no terrible side effects, loosening any biases they might have for the marijuana plant as a whole. I’m just thrilled to have so much medical research available on cannabis, especially about terpenes and their way of shaping the effects of each strain of cannabis. It makes sense that a cannabis product with a higher terpene percentage is likely to have stronger effects across the board as well. If I’m buying cannabis concentrates or cannabis flower products, I regularly look for a higher terpene percentage before looking for a higher THC percentage.
