Meds Benefits of Cannabis

According to this article on Leafly, understanding the chemistry of cannabis helps understand why it works as medicine.

"Cannabanoids (e.g., THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that provide relief to an array of symptoms including pain, nausea, anxiety, and inflammation. These work their medicinal magic by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, which activate to maintain internal stability and health."

"When cannabis is consumed, cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout our brain (receptors called CB-1) and body (CB-2). Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to. For example, THC binds to receptors in the brain whereas CBN (cannabinol) has a strong affinity for CB-2 receptors located throughout the body. Depending on a cannabis product’s cannabinoid profile, different types of relief are achievable.

This concept is the cornerstone of cannabis as medicine, and the results are so promising that these cannabinoids have been synthesized for legal prescription use. Some synthetic cannabinoid medications include Marinol, Nabilone, and Rimonabant. While these synthetic forms are effective, research shows that herbal cannabis contains a far wider variety of therapeutic compounds.
Cannabis contains at least 85 types of cannabinoids, many of which have documented medical value. Products and strains have been developed to deliver larger doses of different cannabinoids, so knowing which types best treat your symptoms is a handy piece of knowledge to bring to your next dispensary visit.
The below wheel serves as a resource to determine which cannabinoids may help treat symptoms associated with mood, eating/gastrointestinal disorders, neurological disorders, pain, sleep disorders, and other medical conditions

Thanks for posting this @momofthegoons.

Here's something, to me anyway, that I think is important to keep in mind when it comes to synthetics. Synthetics are compounds formed through a chemical process by human agency, as opposed to those of natural origin.
I prefer and will choose 'natural' over 'synthetic' every time.
I've read articles by opponents of MMJ that have said why do you need to legalize MMJ when these 'synthetic' products already exist? The answers are here in the article above. Marinol, Nabilone, and Rimonabant do not contain all of the compounds that are found in natural cannabis making them less effective.
Scientists Discover Marijuana Helps Heal Broken Bones, & Even Makes Them Stronger


A marijuana chemical known as cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) helps fractures heal faster and even make the bones stronger than they were before, according to a study conducted by researchers fromTel Aviv Universityand Hebrew University and published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.
CBD has no psychotropic effects.

“We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue,” researcher Yankel Gabet said. “After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.”

The researchers inflicted mild femoral fractures on rats, then injected some of them with CBD, and others with CBD plus tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the ingredient that causes the marijuana high). They then evaluated the healing of the rats, comparing them with rats who had not received any marijuana chemicals.

The researchers found that rats injected with CBD had the same effect whether or not it was accompanied by THC.

“We found CBD alone to be sufficiently effective in enhancing fracture healing,” Gabet said.

“Other studies have also shown CBD to be a safe agent, which leads us to believe we should continue this line of study in clinical trials to assess its usefulness in improving human fracture healing.”

The study supported the same team’s prior findings that the body contains receptors that respond to cannabinoid compounds, and that these receptors are not confined to the brain.

“We only respond to cannabis because we are built with intrinsic compounds and receptors that can also be activated by compounds in the cannabis plant,” Gabet said.

The prior study found that the skeleton contains cannabinoid receptors that stimulate bone formation and inhibit bone loss. The new study seems to confirm these findings.

The study is part of a growing body of research into the medical benefits of marijuana compounds, including CBD. The findings may lead to new research into ways that marijuana could be used to treat osteoporosis or other bone diseases.

“The clinical potential of cannabinoid-related compounds is simply undeniable at this point,” Gabet said.

“While there is still a lot of work to be done to develop appropriate therapies, it is clear that it is possible to detach a clinical therapy objective from the psychoactivity of cannabis. CBD, the principal agent in our study, is primarily anti-inflammatory and has no psychoactivity.”

The list of benefits to medical marijuana continues to grow. It is currently used primarily for chronic pain, to reduce side effects of chemotherapy and to improve appetite in AIDS patients. It has also shown promise in regulating blood sugar and slowing the progression of HIV. It is also being researched as a treatment for multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

Studies have shown that CBD suppresses seizures, stops the mestastasis of many aggressive cancers and may even kill leukemia cells.

A 2013 study in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology found that CBD was just as effective as a popular antipsychotic drug in the treatment of schizophrenia and paranoia, but without the dangerous side effects. Other studies have confirmed the effectiveness of CBD as a safe antipsychotic.

Although marijuana remains technically illegal under U.S. federal law, it is legal to use CBD for research or for limited medical functions in 17 U.S. states. The medical use of marijuana itself is legal in 23 other states.

The federal government still classifies marijuana as having “no currently accepted medical use.” Yet even this may be starting to change. The FDA recently approved CBD extracts as an experimental treatment for Dravet syndrome, a rare form of childhood epilepsy. Preliminary clinical trials are now going forward.

Most people are familiar with the healing potential of medical cannabis for people who are already ill. In states where its medicinal use has been legalized, cannabis is prescribed to help with things like relieving the side effects of chemo, reducing chronic pain, and treating anxiety. Some even go as far as to say they’ve cured themselves from cancer or turned around autoimmune diseases.

But what if taking small amounts of cannabis on a regular basis, as if it were just another health supplement, could actually prevent illnesses before they happen? Sounds far fetched, right? But studies show that it might just be true.

Endocannabinoid System Keeps Us in Balance
The reason cannabis is effective for so many conditions is because it interacts with a physiological system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) — a complex network of receptors that acts like a dimmer switch to all other activity in the body. This means when there is too much or too little activity going on somewhere, the ECS kicks in and brings it back into equilibrium. Our bodies are filled with ECS receptors that are perfect fits both for our own natural chemicals called endocannabinoids and also for the ones coming from plants such as cannabis.
If our ECS is weakened and not functioning properly, introducing plant cannabinoids into our system gives it a helping hand to get on with the job of keeping our system functioning optimally. So if we are in balance, we are less likely to develop disease.
Let’s take a look at some more specific ways that cannabis could prevent us from getting sick.

1. Reducing Chronic Inflammation Lessens Our Chances of Getting Age Related Illnesses
One of the compounds in cannabis, CBD, has been shown by scientists to reduce chronic inflammation in the body. Why is this important? Studies show that chronic, systemic inflammation is potentially the root of many of the illnesses associated with ageing, including everything from autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and MS, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, heart disease, and even cancer.
CBD decreases the production and release of pro-inflammatory cytokines in the body as well as reduces the amount of the fatty acid amidohydrolase — the enzyme that breaks down the body’s own anti-inflammatory endocannabinoid Anandamide. So taking CBD equals less chronic inflammation in the body and better longterm health.
2. A Powerful Antioxidant
Life in the modern age puts our bodies under oxidative stress as we are constantly bombarded by free radicals that can, when out of balance, interfere with cell components and ultimately lead to many conditions such as neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and heart disease, amongst others.
Turns out that CBD, along with other plant compounds within cannabis, is a powerful antioxidant, so much so that it has even been patented by the US government.
3. A Healthy Endocannabinoid System Means a Healthy You
Ok, so you remember the Endocannabinoid System and how it keeps things working in balance? A theory has been developed by Dr. Ethan Russo suggesting that many of the difficult to explain illnesses such as IBS, fibromyalgia, and migraines could be explained by a deficient ECS. He says, “If you don’t have enough endocannabinoids you have pain where there shouldn’t be pain. You would be sick, meaning nauseated. You would have a lowered seizure threshold. And just a whole litany of other problems.” And what’s the best way of topping up the endocannabinoid gas in your tank? You guessed it, taking cannabis.

4. CBD Reduces Chronic Anxiety
Having chronic anxiety is a surefire way to weaken the immune system, and sufferers are more prone to health problems such as high blood pressure in later life. Studies show that CBD reduces anxiety levels due to its interplay with the 5HT1-A receptor, a serotonin receptor found throughout the brain and in high densities in the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, and amygdala — all heavily involved in mood and anxiety disorders. Human trials have shown it to be particularly effective for social anxiety disorder.
5. Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Most people have heard of cannabis causing the ‘munchies,’ but counterintuitively in regular cannabis users, pigging out doesn’t generally result in wider waistlines. One theory is that cannabis positively affects the body’s metabolism.
Scientists also believe it may potentially regulate blood sugar levels. According to one studypublished in the American Journal of Medicine, “current marijuana use was associated with 16% lower fasting insulin levels and 17% lower HOMA-IR (insulin resistance).” More research is currently underway to see if cannabis can be used to treat diabetes, but it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that it could help to prevent it.
6. Now for the Controversial One — Prevent Cancer?
At any one time an average person will find some cancer cells in their body. THC, the cannabinoid that gets you high, increases the manufacturing of Ceramide (a metabolite that encourages the death of cancer cells), leaving the healthy ones intact.
CBD has also been shown to be anti-proliferative, so it could prevent cancer cells from spreading. It also strengthens the immune system, thus helping to fight cancer cells off.
So it is possible that both cannabinoids could potentially nip cancer cells in the bud before they get to form into something malignant.
7. Youthful Skin
Cannabis based beauty products are huge right now due to their powerful antioxidant and inflammatory properties combined with purported anti-ageing powers.
The stimulation of endocannabinoid receptors through topical use of cannabis creams could explain their ability to heal and smooth damaged skin. Plus cannabis plants are packed full of the essential fatty acid Omega 3, which helps to keep skin hydrated and protected from sun damage.
8. Protect Your Joints
A three year Canadian study funded by the Arthritis Society has shown that cannabinoids don’t just dampen pain, but can actually repair damaged joints. And let’s not forget those Omega 3s. Found in abundance in hemp oil, they make the perfect lubricant to keep us well-oiled and mobilized.
So taking cannabis could be as much about protecting our joints as reducing the pain and inflammation once the damage is done.
9. Strengthen Those Bones
Endocannabinoid receptors are involved in bone formation and protecting against age related bone loss conditions such as osteoporosis. Both THC and CBD facilitate the process of bone metabolism, in which old bone is replaced with new, and CBD has even been shown to enhance the healing process after a bone fracture.
10. Reduce Hardcore Prescription Meds
In the U.S. approximately 12 million people currently take opioid based prescription medicines, with prescription painkiller related deaths rising steadily. Many people find taking cannabinoids alongside their prescription painkillers an effective means to gradually wean themselves off their medication, which can only have health benefits in the long term.
11. Protect Your Brain
There’s so much we don’t know about those 3lbs of jelly-like tissue between our ears. But what we do know is that the ECS is integrally linked to the process of neurogenesis in which new neurons are generated and integrated into the developed brain.
Dr Gary Wenk, PhD, a professor of neuroscience, immunology and medical genetics at Ohio State University, recommends consuming small amounts of cannabis daily to protect against brain inflammation and restore neurogenesis. He’s coined the catchy phrase “a puff is enough” because, as he says, “it appears as though only a single puff each day is necessary to produce significant benefit.”
Dr. Wenk’s suggestion is all fine and good if you happen to live in a part of the world where consuming cannabis is legal (although the jury’s out on whether smoking is the best form of ingestion), but for most people, this isn’t the case. So then what? Luckily the non psychoactive cannabinoid CBD is also found in industrial hemp which, due to having next to no traces of THC, is legal in most countries and has been shown by scientists to also have neuroprotective potential.
It all makes for a pretty convincing case that regular, low level cannabis consumption could prevent many of the diseases that threaten our health as we get older. And who knows, one day we may indeed just take it like any other health boosting supplement or vitamin.
Is Cannabis the Next Kale? One Chef Aims to Prove It's Even More Nutritious

When nutritionists advise that you rotate the greens in your diet, we don't think this is what they had in mind. But good news for marijuana fans everywhere: Ongoing trials suggest that the cannabis plant might be even more nutrient-dense than kale.

Marijuana more nutritious than kale?! (Minds blown.) Is this for real, or did we just indulge in too many edibles?

Let's get to the bottom of this. More than a decade ago, Payton Curry left behind his life as a chef at Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurants to teach classes in the craft of cooking the non-psychoactive parts of the cannabis plant—the components that target pain relief and don't get you high, like THC does. He's now created a company called Flourish that works with labs in California and Arizona to develop food products targeted at easing the pains of stomach disorders.

The current trials are for raw cannabis juice, which he hopes can be introduced at select California medical dispensaries before the state's recreational shops are permitted to open in 2018. "It's full of phytonutrients that you won't find in kale or spirulina or anything like that," Curry said. Phytonutrients may help ward off diseases like cancer and keep your body working properly.

Cannabis juice also has probiotic benefits, like kombucha, sauerkraut, and yogurt, and supports a healthy immune system and metabolism. "And it's great when you tell people with stomach ailments how something as simple as this juice can put a pep in their step by offering a more positive environment in the pH of their stomach," Curry said. "It's not making any claims of curing this or that, it's simply offering a probiotic-rich environment to your stomach, like yogurt would. Digestion is the key to our life, and this juice is something we are very focused on as a kitchen and as a lab for those reasons."

Cannabis juice is also high in vitamins, minerals, essential oils, and antioxidants like omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, Curry explained, adding that they tested kale juice against raw cannabis juice.

Ready to get your five-a-day? One major stumbling block that could prevent everyone from ditching kale and declaring cannabis the next "it" vegetable is that cannabis has a very harsh and earthy taste (so we've heard...). So that might be a tough sell to big box grocery stores and gym juice bars. Still, with eight states having legalized marijuana and more expected, we're guessing a new boutique juice movement is underfoot and will only continue to grow like weeds.
Cannabis Cleans Up Nuclear Radiation and Toxic Chemical Waste

This farmer is growing hemp to save his soil from toxic chemical waste.

Europe’s largest steel mill in the city of Taranto, Italy, used to produce over 10 million tons of steel every year, 40% of all the steel made in Italy. It currently employs about 12,000 people.

The local economy of Taranto, population 200,000, is almost entirely reliant on the steel mill, which is one of the biggest and most deadly polluters of anywhere in the Mediterranean.

The plant is a notorious source of dioxin and dust from the plant is believed to be the reason why Taranto has a lung cancer rate 30% higher than the national average. The plant is so toxic, farmers are forbidden from raising livestock within a 20 kilometer radius of the plant and in 2008, the government ordered the slaughter of thousands of sheep and other animals that were found to have excessively high levels of dioxin.

The area could also be making a lot of money off of tourists because of its nice beaches and pastoral farmland, but the steel mill keeps potential visitors away.

The mill is currently under government control. Health officials ordered the mill be partially shut down, yet the move was blocked by government authorities, and the police partially occupied the plant as part of a criminal investigation, and its owners were ultimately arrested and jailed for committing “environmental disaster”, a serious crime in Italy. Yet the mill still continues to operate, producing much less steel than it once had.

Vincenzo Fornaro’s farm is less than a mile away from the steel mill. Over a decade ago, his entire flock of 600 sheep had to be killed. Since then, he’s been forbidden from raising livestock or crops for food. So instead, Vincenzo Fornaro has decided to grow weed. He doesn’t grow pot to smoke or sell, instead he grows it to pull toxins from the steel mill out of his soil.

Fornaro has planted huge stands of industrial hemp on his farm. He is using a tactic called “phytoremediation”. This tactic uses plants to remove heavy metals, radioactive material, and other bad stuff from the earth.

Industrial hemp has been used to clean up deadly pollutants before. The most famous use of industrial hemp for phytoremediation was near the site of the deadly nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, Ukraine. In the mid-1990s, a company named Phytotech worked with researchers and a Ukraine-based seed bank to plant thousands of hemp plants in and around Chernobyl.

Phytoremediation is a relatively new process, but it is very helpful.

Considering there are tens of thousands of polluted sites across the United States in desperate need of safe cleanup, this process could be the answer to a lot of our issues. Nothing can be built on polluted sites until they are cleaned, meaning these sites sit and continue to pollute the earth until something is done. Billions are spent each year in efforts to clean up toxic soil, and the time for phytoremediation is now.

According to researchers from Colorado State University, hemp is extremely effective in removing the toxic element cadmium from soils. This is convenient because cadmium contamination is everywhere. It is seen in fossil fuels, old-school pesticides and many other byproducts of human civilization.

Since hemp grows quickly, has deep roots, and doesn’t appear to be stunted by pollution, hemp is one of the best plants to use in phytoremediation.

Another amazing thing about using hemp for this process is that, once it has removed toxic chemicals from the soil, it can still be put to use. Hemp can be converted into oil for lubrication or other industrial purposes, it can be used as insulation, and it can even be used as paper or construction material. The most heavy metals appear to accumulate in the leaves of hemp, so it is best to use the stalks or seeds.

While it might not be a good idea to eat or wear hemp products culled from areas where nuclear waste once glowed, this hemp is still safe to use in other applications.

In Italy, where hemp is being grown to detox the land or the toxic chemicals released by the mill, activists are actually beginning to use the hemp to replace steel! Activists have built a brand new apartment building completely made out of hemp fiber.
Really didn't think this warranted a thread of it's own and wasn't sure where to put this lol.... this seemed like a good spot. Restoring bee populations is certainly a benefit.

Bees Absolutely Love Cannabis & It Could Help Restore Their Populations


  • The Facts:
    A new study published in Environmental Entomology shows that multiple bee populations are very attractive for hemp, and that hemp crops can be a very important factor for the survival of multiple bee colonies.
  • Reflect On:
    Remember when DDT was deemed safe? It was sprayed all over crops as well as children. Today, we are approving substances that are clearly having a detrimental impact on our environment. Why are harmful substances constantly approved for use.
New research out of Cornell University that’s been published in Environmental Entomology, shows that humans aren’t the only fans of cannabis. The recent findings also compliment a study published last year at Colorado State University that discovered the same thing, that bee’s love cannabis. The recent legalization of hemp in the United States seems to be having a very positive effect on multiple bee populations.

The Cornell study states:

We identified all bee visitors to the species level and found that hemp supported 16 different bee species. Landscape simplification negatively impacted the abundance of bees visiting hemp flowers but did not affect the species richness of the community. Plant height, on the other hand, was strongly correlated with bee species richness and abundance for hemp plots with taller varieties attracting a broader diversity of bee species. Because of its temporally unique flowering phenology, hemp has the potential to provide a critical nutritional resource to a diverse community of bees during a period of floral scarcity and thereby may help to sustain agroecosystem-wide pollination services for other crops in the landscape. As cultivation of hemp increases, growers, land managers, and policy makers should consider its value in supporting bee communities and take its attractiveness to bees into account when developing pest management strategies.
The authors go on to emphasize:

Bees provide essential pollination services in both natural and agricultural systems; yet, both wild and managed bees have been adversely impacted by numerous characteristics of large-scale, intensified agriculture, including the widespread use of chemical pesticides and insecticides, persistent pathogens and parasites, and the loss of seminatural nesting habitat and plant diversity (Goulson et al. 2015, Dicks et al. 2016). Landscape-scale loss of natural areas and plant diversity, a defining characteristic of intensive agriculture, occurs as a consequence of the increased size and connectivity of areas devoted to agricultural production (Meehan et al. 2011). Habitat loss associated with agricultural land-use change imposes nutritional stress on bee communities (Naug 2009) by reducing the diversity of floral resources and imposing temporal gaps in resource availability (Di Pasquale et al. 2016). Changing land use patterns, therefore, threaten the sustainability of the pollination services that our agricultural systems rely upon.
With the recent legalization of hemp in the United States, more pollen sources are popping up for bees. which is an encouraging thought.

Hemp flowers late in the summer releasing an abundance of pollen during a period of native and agricultural floral dearth (Dalio 2012, Koh et al. 2016). As a result, hemp pollen may offer a vital subsistence resource to bees at a point in the season when they are resource-limited
The study goes on to cite multiple studies that have documented the importance of hemp pollen in supporting a diverse community of bees, especially during times of scarcity. This is a theme emphasized throughout the entire paper, the fact that it has strong potential to enhance pollinator populations.

The study concludes:

Hemp is a high pollen producing crop flowering during a period of floral resource scarcity and supports a diverse array of bees in the northeastern U.S. landscape. The rapid expansion of hemp production in the United States (Schluttenhofer and Yuan 2017) may have significant implications for agroecosystem-wide pollination dynamics. The potential for hemp to serve as a floral resource for bees is influenced by landscape composition, the height of hemp plants, and temporal factors. Growers, extension agents and policy makers should consider risks to bees as pest management practices are developed for this crop (Cranshaw et al. 2019).
The Takeaway
Insecticides, and other pesticides and herbicides that have been sprayed heavily within North America and other countries have been linked to a dramatic decline in bee populations by multiple studies. This has made big news within the past few years alone. A decline in bee population has devastating consequences for the global food supply of human beings, the bees themselves and several other species. Everything is interconnected, and human beings have long had the potential to operate in various ways that are more harmonious with all life on planet Earth. So ask yourself, if the solutions exist, what’s the issue with regards to getting them implemented? When it comes to the substances that are killing off the bee population, they are also having negative consequences for human and environmental health.

It’s great to see the planet become more aware. Consciousness with regards to a number of different topics, like environmental awareness is drastically changing quite rapidly. Shifts in consciousness lead to action steps, slowly, but surely.
How to summer detox with the help of cannabis

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on our lives; and without our favorite ways to shake off unhealthy summer habits, many of us have been left to wonder how we’re going to manage this year’s summer detox. Between shutdowns and social distancing, workouts in the gym have become tougher, and reaching for comfort food has never been easier.

These shifts in our lifestyles require us to rethink the ways we rid our bodies of toxins, so that we can go into fall feeling our best.

Many of the common toxins people want to detox from include:

  • Processed foods
  • Pollution in the air
  • Pesticides
  • Added sugars
  • Environmental stressors
  • Alcohol
  • Emotional trauma
  • Nicotine and caffeine
Detoxification with cannabis

It’s important to note that sweating alone doesn’t detoxify the body. Humans produce sweat for cooling down- like the body’s internal air conditioning system. Exercise is a necessary tool for total health, but for detoxification, cannabis may be better suited.

Detoxing and fasting aren’t new, but the concept of using cannabis to help with a detox seems pretty new-age. While it’s no miracle drug or tummy tea, cannabis can help with detoxing and fasting due to its many useful natural qualities.

Cannabis is packed with beneficial phytochemicals (various biologically active compounds found in plants) and has been studied for both its analgesic and antioxidant properties.

If you’re asking, ‘’what’s wrong with a few oxidants?,” we totally understand.

When there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body, it can cause what’s known as oxidative stress – a naturally occurring process that can lead to cell and tissue damage. And though this process happens to our bodies no matter what, there are plenty of ways to help slow it down.

Here are three ways you can incorporate cannabis into your summer detox to help you feel fresh for fall:

1. Summer detox with CBD oil

CBD oil is a great stress reliever and natural supporter of our bodily functions. It does this by encouraging homeostasis within our endocannabinoid system.
CBD can help you detox from summer and settle in to fall by helping you find a better sleep pattern, cope with the anxiety, and/or help relieve the stress of working and homeschooling under the same roof.
Full-spectrum CBD oil products will introduce the body to the full array of compounds found in the cannabis plant: cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, etc. – helping you introduce all of nature’s goodness to your system while encouraging the entourage effect.
2. Detox the body with raw cannabis leaves, flower, and seeds

Like kale, spinach, and collards; cannabis can be consumed as green roughage. Though eating the plant doesn’t produce a psychoactive effect, cannabis leaves, flower, and seeds serve as a good source of minerals, fiber, and protein.
Most of us don’t need any explanation for the benefits of a diet higher in all three f these nutrients. But for those that may, minerals, fibers, and proteins help the body nourish organs like the liver and support a healthier thyroid. Eating raw cannabis also allows your body to access the natural terpenes and flavonoids in the plant uninterrupted by heat.
So next time you make a salad, try making it extra green with raw cannabis, adding some hemp seeds to your smoothie, and or juicing the leaves and flower. Just make sure the cannabis you use is pesticide-free.
3. Detoxing the mind with cannabis tea

We often think about the physical body when we think consider detoxing, but mental detoxing is just as important – especially after the weirdest summer many of us have seen. A mental detox is the release of thoughts that trigger negative emotions, and the acceptance of thoughts that lead to feelings of peace and joy.
Cannabis tea is one of the go to’s for stress relief and relaxation and a great tool for your mental summer detox. A cup in the morning or night along with a sound meditation routine can help you find calm and prepare for winter’s challenges, like seasonal depression and being indoors even more.
Many things are out of our control right now, but healthy practices aren’t. Just remember to speak with your doctor before starting a detox or any ther kind of dietary adjustment.

Whether you want to boost your immune system, mood, and nutrient balance or reduce inflammation, anxiety, and stress, a cannabis detox may do you good. After all, a healthy body and mind is the key to a happy life, in and out of a pandemic.

How Marijuana Can Be Used For Mental Health Concerns

Marijuana, available in many cannabis products, has several mental health benefits. Although studies are ongoing to check its validity, individuals who have used it and part of the results have shown positive improvements to a human being’s entire mental system.

It has helped individuals retain their mental health after undergoing several disorders, including stress, depression, and brain conditions. Here is how this product can be used for mental health concerns.

1) It helps Improve Cognitive Abilities​

Every time a human being gets old, their brain loses focus and becomes weaker as the years go by. This gradual degenerative process gets referred to as memory loss, and it’s rampant nowadays in many regions. While it’s a phase that everyone should pass on, this process can be reduced by taking marijuana products. The products have therapeutic effects on it and help improve their function. Individuals who have used these products have recorded significant improvements in focusing, thinking, learning, and comprehending whatever is on their minds. It helps strengthen the brain and treats neuroinflammatory diseases, including sepsis and meningitis.

2) It Helps With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder​

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD, grows when the brain gets exposed to an unpleasant experience. An individual suffering from this often gets trauma caused by this experience. If you are suffering from this, it’s necessary to get your marijuana dose from reputable sellers to maximize your savings. Treatment of this painful disorder requires an increase in serotonin levels. An amount of marijuana induces serotonin production in the brain, which helps deal with the symptoms that come with this disease. Such symptoms include recurrent nightmares and insomnia.

3) It Helps Treat Depression and Anxiety​

Depression cases are on the rise due to the high cost of living, loss of jobs, businesses’ falls, and other related causes. While there are different ways of reducing stress, taking a marijuana dose has dramatically helped relieve depression and anxiety. How does this occur? It induces the production of endorphins, which are hormones that make people happy. Suffering from depression and stress often result in other disorders, including headaches, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction. While you would not want to suffer from this, it’s advisable to take precautions in treating these disorders. One way of doing so is by taking a cannabis dose, which helps ease the situation.

4) It Improves Sleep​

Failing to sleep well may lead to other disorders, including anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression. While we can practice different ways of initiating sleep, marijuana has some benefits that help one sleep better. It helps relax the body and the mind, enabling one to fall asleep soundly. Through better sleeping, one ends up having improved life and gets to do their daily routine better, including thinking, communication, and physical activities. It would help if you took it while practicing other forms of initiating sleep.

Many people have always had negative thoughts concerning marijuana and its products. While research is still going on to prove these claims, people who have used it have recorded positive physical and mental health changes. There is a need to try it, especially in treating chronic diseases that other medicines have failed to treat.
