Weed is well known to ease pain, nausea, and depression. It gives one a heightened appetite, which works well for those who are lacking one due to medications and procedures such as chemotherapy . It also brings on feelings of euphoria and and slightly altered state of consciousness, which you'll hear some artists say this helps them with creativity. And, all and all, smoking weed relaxes one and works well to calm stress and some types of anxiety.

There are many other reasons one might want to smoke weed, though the above are the most commonly desired effects.
