Cannabis a Day and Health

Marijuana a day provides you a healthy way?

With the U.S likely to get its first ever FDA-approved marijuana-derived drug soon, the scope of legal acceptance of cannabis increases considerably. More Americans could start purchasing marijuana seeds to do their own cultivation.

Why Taking Weed daily could be Good for You

People consuming marijuana daily is not uncommon in the United States. A Lancet Psychiatry study from a few years ago put the numbers at approximately 8.4 million. Interestingly, that’s 16.3 percent of the U.S. population compared to just 8 percent in the Netherlands which is the base for the shops whose specialization are marijuana seeds. This seed can be used in a variety of ways for different purposes. Several people use CBD oil in Florida legally for its miraculous benefits.

7 key health benefits of marijuana:

  1.  Effective treatment for chronic pain

Chronic pain particularly nerve pain and that caused by multiple sclerosis are greatly helped by cannabis. The benefit for chronic pain is more firmly established by a recent large review that analyzed no less than 10,000 scientific studies on cannabis and cannabinoids’ positive and negative effects on health. Patients suffering from lower back pain can also benefit from marijuana to a great extent.

Marijuana is less addictive and sedating than opioids. The latter is also more likely to cause deadly side effects.

  1.  May stop epileptic seizures and prevent them too.

CBD Oil with high CBD content and low THC content is capable of decreasing the muscle spasms associated with epilepsy in a matter of seconds. What’s more, many epilepsy sufferers have stated that marijuana ends their seizures.  The drug Epidiolex from GW Pharmaceuticals that is on the verge of FDA approval, is an oral solution with the target being early onset, orphan, severe, epilepsy syndromes that do not respond to regular treatment. This includes Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), Dravet Syndrome, Infantile Spasms (IS) and Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC).

  1.  Could help with weight loss

As per a 2013 report from The American Journal of Medicine (AMA), those who took cannabis regularly had a trimmer waistline and better insulin levels.

  1.  Cannabis is a Potential Cancer Treatment

On the National Cancer Institute website, it is mentioned that when CBD (cannabidiol) is administered alongside chemotherapy, the CBD would possibly improve the effectiveness of the latter. This is by increasing the number of dead cancer cells with no harm whatsoever to the normal cells. The study was done on human glioma cells.

  1.  Cannabis May benefit PTSD Sufferers

Research reveals that marijuana and other cannabinoids derived from plants could offer benefits to PTSD sufferers in terms of reduction of hyper-arousal, less tendency to re-enact the trauma or to keep away from situations that stirred up memories of the trauma, alleviating haunting nightmares and other PTSD symptoms.

  1.  Cannabis For healthier blood pressure

Medical marijuana doctors in Jacksonville believe that while irregular marijuana use may cause temporary blood pressure spikes, continuous use will cause the body to adapt. The result is lower blood pressure that is maintained.

  1.  Cannabis for Acne

CBD oil has sebostatic properties and is anti- inflammatory in nature. This can inhibit lipid synthesis which is effective in treating acne.

Cannabis Healthy Options

If you wish to gain maximum from marijuana while reducing the negative side effects, you might want to consider options such as these:

  • Cannabis infused foods: This includes marijuana-infused cookies and for the calorie conscious, marijuana-infused granola mixes.
  • Tea: Suggestions include letting the herbs steep in water, dissolving cannabutter into the cup by heating together butter and the herbal cannabis and putting into your tea.
  • Tincture: You just have to put a few to several drops beneath the tongue to feel the effects quickly.
