Legal marijuana is about more - much more - than recreational use. In fact, its medicinal potential, unchained, could be worth billions more than the billion-dollar consumables market.

Two of its more intriguing components, non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) and psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), have a clear impact on brain function and pain management. Glaucoma sufferers, for example, have long known that pot can reduce ocular swelling. Many people swear by pot's ability to improve lung function, counterintuitive as that may seem. And people suffering from conditions such as multiple sclerosis will tell you that this drug can greatly ease the daily pain they must live with. Results like those are part of the reason medical marijuana has been approved in 24 states and in many countries around the world - and the reason why the medical marijuana market topped $4 billion in 2015.
