The use of medical cannabis in pediatrics presents a bit of a double bind for physicians as well as the parents of patients, writes Brandon Hicks. On one hand, cannabis use among minors, in any capacity, is controversial due to evidence that marijuana can damage the developing brain.

Want to know how marijuana can reverse aging?

“Free radicals” is a buzzword in our contemporary conversation how to reverse aging. The term refers to atoms, or clusters of atoms, that contain unpaired electrons in their outermost shells. These atoms are desperate to complete themselves and are therefore constantly on the look out for an electron to grab on to. [Insert smug and offensive joke about your single friends here].

The danger of free radicals is that they can damage every part of our cells—from the fatty outer membranes, to internal mitochondrial proteins, to the innermost DNA—and even induce cell death. Moreover, free radicals create more free radicals, as denuded molecules look for new targets in a self-perpetuating chain of electron theft.
