The medicinal properties of cannabis have been widely known since ancient times. Despite the strong government’s refusal to use them for years, cannabis now finds its rightful place and is recognized as a medicine even in the most conservative countries in the world. Initially we should know that cannabis has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it an immediate ally in the fight against various but also difficult diseases. However, because of the prejudice that existed, most investigations were carried out on animals. Nevertheless, no one can question the countless patient testimonies that each of us can find by doing a simple internet search.
So let’s see how cannabis could be useful to us:
1.Cannabis has anti-cancer properties.
Perhaps one of the well-known medicinal miracles of cannabis is the action it has against cancer. Through valid studies and results, cannabis has shown that it is capable of shrinking or even eliminating cancerous tumors. It also has great efficacy in the intense pain caused by cancer, greatly relieving the patient.
2. Helps patients with Multiple Sclerosis
One of the most difficult autoimmune diseases is Multiple Sclerosis. It is an inflammatory disease that strikes the nervous system causing intense physical pain, convulsions, paralysis and blindness. So far there is no cure for MS, only treatments that slow down the symptoms and relieve the patient to a certain extent. But there are few who use cannabis to relieve pain, with reports of great effectiveness in muscle spasms and mobility.
3. Helps to fight Depression
Cannabis can be used very effectively by people suffering from depression. The secret lies in our endocannabinoid system, which is directly affected by cannabis use. With proper use, cannabis is able to help produce dopamine and testosterone, automatically raising our mood, creating a sense of euphoria.
4. It has good results in people with Autism
Autism is also a disease without treatment. A person with autism has difficulty communicating with people around him and feels uncomfortable with human touch and visual contact. There is also a great difficulty in sleeping and, depending on the case, there may be violent outbursts and aggressive behavior. Studies and results so far show that both CBD and THC help prevent the outbursts of autism, providing peace to the patient after use.
5. Fights Epileptic Seizures
Also, one of the most spectacular results of CBD is against epileptic seizures. Cannavidol, in just a few minutes, is capable of stopping an epileptic seizure.
6. Helps to manage Diabetes.
Previous research has shown that the CBD helps regulate blood sugar, by significantly reducing glucose levels, one of the main problems a diabetes patient has.
7. Helps reduce stress.
If used properly cannabis can significantly reduce the sense of anxiety. It is also widely known that the most basic sense of cannabis is that of relaxation.
8. It is an aphrodisiac for both men and women.
There are a lot of reports of using cannabis for sex. Women describe cinematic orgasms and men report their intense desire for sex after the use. There are, already, products containing hemp available in the market, designed to offer or slow down sexual enjoyment.
9. Helps with Insomnia
Everything is again related to the frequency of use. Although cannabis is relaxing, it can sometimes stimulate mood for regular users. But if you use it responsibly, it can give you the smoothest sleep!
10. Relieves Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a disease of the eye that is not curable. The disease creates an increase in intraocular pressure, altering the sense of vision, leading to blindness. Cannabis reduces intraocular pressure without causing any damage to the eye, offering great relief from the pain.
11. It offers a healthier life to your pet.
There are a few owners who administer special CBD farmaceutics to their pet. There are many reports and many internet videos that prove the effectiveness of CBD in our four-legged friends. Dogs and cats born with some spasticity calm down in just a few minutes after the oil is given.
12. Anti-aging, moisturizing and beutifying properties
Yes, you heard well, cannabis can be found in moisturizing creams for face, hands, body, even in shampoo with amazing effects on our skin and hair!
13. Helps with Psoriasis
A cannabis creme is therefore enough to help with psoriasis. It may not cure the condition but relieve it to a significant extent.
14. It can help with Anorexia Nervosa
There is not, yet, much valid evidence that cannabis can treat anorexia. However, studies show that people suffering from anorexia have reduced intensity in the endocannavinoid receptors in their brain. The use of cannabis activates these receptors. It is also a fact that cannabis has the tendency to stimulate our appetite for food.
15. Relieves Headache
Headache is one of the worst pains you can experience. Those who suffer from headaches experience very unpleasant feelings such as dizziness, intense eye pressure, nausea, vertigo, insomnia, reduced mood and spiritual clarity. Cannabis, because of the anti-inflammatory properties and the activation of the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain, can effectively suppress the unpleasant symptoms of the headache. Both CBD and THC show that they help people suffering from headaches.
As time passes, we will learn more and more about the medicinal properties of cannabis. Both CBD and THC can replace chemical drugs by offering quality of life to people with very difficult illnesses. It is time to accept the truth and get over the prejudice that have been imposed to us towards this unique plant.
