The Medical Benefits of Cannabis


Cannabis and the active chemicals in medical cannabis are similar to the chemicals the body makes that are involved in appetite, memory, movement and pain. 


Research over the years has suggested that cannabis can reduce anxiety, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, control nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy, kill cancer cells and slow tumor growth, relaxes tight muscles in people with multiple sclerosis and even stimulate appetite and improve weight gain.

Cannabis can be used and found in many different forms. The health benefits of Cannabis is one of the main growing reasons why the plant is becoming so popular. 

If you would like to grow your own cannabis you could get it from a cannabis seed bank.  This is a business which specializes in not only storing and selling cannabis seeds, but also on feminizing seeds to reduce the chance of male plants developing and maximize yields for commercial and individual growers.

It is CBD which is a chemical which impacts the brain, making it function better without giving you a high. It also contains THC which has pain relieving properties. Together they can give the health benefits of cannabis which includes: 

Pain Relief

Cannabis may reduce pain by altering pain pathways in the brain. It can be used for treatments that cause chronic pain including endometriosis, migraines, arthritis and fibromyalgia. It can also be used to minimise cancer treatment side effects such as sickness and loss of appetite. Cannabis can also be used to replace long term use of NSAIDs including ibuprofen. 

Improving Lung Capacity 

Smoking cannabis isn’t harmful, a recent study even showed that cannabis can increase lung capacity rather than causing harm to them. There are plenty of ways of ingesting cannabis if you would like to not smoke it. You can use vapes, eat it in your favourite foods, use capsules or even use topicals.

Improving Circulation

Cannabis can help to regulate and prevent diabetes! Research has been conducted which links cannabis to effects such as stabilising blood sugars, lowering blood pressure and improving overall circulation. 

Helping Inflammation 

CBD can reduce inflammation which could therefore benefit inflammatory conditions including Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Parkinson’s disease and even diabetes. It can also help your overall health as decreasing inflammation is always a good thing. 

Skin Conditions

Cannabinoid products also have the potential to treat a range of skin conditions including acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and even more. It can help to restore dehydrated skin and have an improved texture. It can help to relax stressed skin. What is stressed skin you may be asking yourself? Skin that is stressed is skin that experiences discomfort from dehydration, dryness, loss of luminosity and has acne. 

Acne is a skin condition that affects more than 9% of the population. CBD oil can help to treat acne as it has anti inflammatory properties which can help to reduce sebum production. Sebaceous glands are responsible for producing sebum, a naturally oily substance which hydrated the skin. Too much sebum however can cause acne. Before you consider CBD oil for acne treatment it is worth talking to your doctor about this.

This could be a car accident, abuse, health problems and it can develop in about 1 in 3 people who experience severe trauma. It is not fully understood why people develop the condition while others do not. Cannabis can be used to help treat PTSD as it can help to control the fight or flight response, preventing it going into overdrive.
