The cannabis industry is exploding right now and with good reason. With Canadian legalization looming many folks are turning to cannabis for its myriad of health benefits and because let’s face it – weed is enjoyable.
What are the Benefits of Marijuana?
First, a rundown on how marijuana works. Humans have a network of cannabinoid receptors found within their body; this is called the endocannabinoid system. One of the active cannabinoids in pot (THC) mimics cannabinoids naturally found within your body. THC binds to cannabinoid receptors, which affects things such as mood, sensation and memory.
Since THC is psychoactive it alters your mental state. Also, depending on the marijuana strain and its attributes weed can have uplifting or sedative effect. In other words, the strain of marijuana will give a certain character to your high.
Lots of people regard marijuana as ‘plant medicine’; they use it to relieve stress, anxiety, fear, pain, or anger. Since it’s a low risk drug people may turn to marijuana instead of taking other medication (that can have nasty side-effects), or as a less harmful alternative to other intoxicants.
