  • 20 health benefits of cannabis that everyone should know

Hemp can be found in various forms. Moreover, its health benefits are constantly growing. Tara Leo of CaliExtractions created an overview focused on the diverse merits of this plant.

Cannabis contains CBD, a chemical that affects the brain to work better without causing drugs like THC. Cannabis users can achieve the following health benefits:

1. Relief of chronic pain
Hemp contains hundreds of chemical compounds, most of which are cannabinoids. Cannabinoids due to its chemical treatment offer relief from chronic pain. Therefore, cannabis by-products, such as medical cannabis, are used for this purpose.

2. Increase lung capacity
Unlike cigarette smoking, smoking does not destroy marijuana lungs. In fact, the study found that cannabis helps to increase lung capacity and does not cause any harm.

3. Help with weight loss
Looking at enthusiastic cannabis users you will notice that they usually do not have extra pounds. Because cannabis helps to regulate insulin, the body can absorb calories more efficiently than normal.

4. Control of diabetes and providing prevention
It makes sense that, due to its effect on insulin, cannabis can help control diabetes and prevent diabetes. Scientists led by the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC) concluded that cannabis stabilizes blood sugar, lowers blood pressure and improves blood circulation.

5. Fight against cancer
One of the greatest health effects of cannabis is that it is linked to the fight against cancer. We have a large number of records available that prove that cannabinoids can fight cancer or at least certain types of cancer.

6. Help with depression
Depression is widespread today, and many people do not even know it suffers. Endocannabinoid compounds in cannabis can help with mood balance and this alleviates depression.

7. Hope in the treatment of autism
Cannabis is known for being able to soothe users and "guard" their mood. It can help children with autism who experience frequent mood swings.

8. Regulation of seizures
Research on CBD has shown that this substance can help with seizure control. Studies on the impact of cannabis in people with epilepsy are also ongoing.

9. Strengthening bones
Cannabidiol is associated with the treatment of broken bones as it accelerates the entire course of treatment. According to the Bone Research Laboratory, located in Tel Aviv, CBD also helps to strengthen bones during treatment. This process strengthens the bone, making it less likely to break again in the future.

10. Help with ADHD / ADD
People with ADHD and ADD have difficulty concentrating on the tasks. They tend to cognitive problems and focus. Cannabis is very promising in enhancing concentration and concentration in people with ADHD / ADD. It is also considered safer than Adderall and Ritalin.

11. Treatment of glaucoma
Glaucoma causes severe pressure on the eyeball, which is very painful for the individual. Cannabis can help reduce blood pressure, providing patients with temporary pain relief.

12. Alleviation of anxiety
Although cannabis is known to cause anxiety, it can also produce the opposite effect. When used in guarded and safe doses and in the right way, it can help relieve anxiety and calm down.

13. Deceleration of the development of Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's disease is one of many that results from degeneration of cognitive functions. The more we age, the more inevitable that degeneration is. The endocannabinoids found in cannabis contain anti-inflammatory equipment that fights the brain inflammations leading to Alzheimer's.

14. Coping with the pain that is associated with arthritis
Today, we can find cannabis in creams and balms that seek out people suffering from arthritis. THC and CBD both help patients with pain relief.

15. Combating PTSD symptoms
PTSD affects not only war veterans, but also individuals undergoing trauma. The more that cannabis comes to the fore and is legalized, the more its impact on PTSD mitigation is being studied. Cannabis helps to control the fight-or-flight response (acute stress reaction).

16. Providing relief to patients with multiple sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis can be painful and cannabis is known to provide relief for this problem. Multiple sclerosis leads to painful muscular contractions and cannabis can help relieve this pain at least a little.

17. Mitigating side effects associated with hepatitis C and improving treatment effectiveness
The treatment of hepatitis C involves a large number of side effects including nausea, exhaustion, depression and muscle pain. In some people suffering from hepatitis C, these symptoms may last for months. Therefore, cannabis alleviates any side effects caused by treatment, while making treatment itself more effective.

18. Treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases
Individuals with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis may achieve some relief from cannabis use. THC and cannabidiol are known to help improve the immune response while acting on cells that play an important role in the functioning of the viscera. Cannabis helps to “bounce” bacteria and other compounds that cause inflammation.

19. It helps with the shaking that accompanies Parkinson's disease
In people suffering from Parkinson's disease, cannabis can help reduce shaking and pain. In addition, it improves the quality of sleep and has been found to help improve motor skills.

20. Helps fight alcoholism
Another of the many health benefits is that there is no doubt that cannabis is much safer than alcohol. Although there is no 100% confidence that cannabis is risk free, we can consider it as a better substitute for alcohol alone.
