Cannabis is more commonly known as marijuana. Yes, the dried flower plant you smoke to get high, which can be sold by medical companies like Aphria, or recreational brands like Budderweeds. Even though cannabis is a classified drug, it has many health benefits for you. Stoners rejoice! There are many types of cannabis but the three main types of its genus are cannabis indica, cannabis sativa and hybrid strains of the two. Each strain has its own benefits and a different quantity of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – aka the stuff that gets you stoned. Apart from dried flower, cannabis is also consumed in the form of cannabis oil. You can add cannabis oil to your food or water or ingest it orally. Be careful when ingesting and only take a specific dosage. It has greater effects than smoking dried flower plants.
Here are some of the benefits you get when ingesting or smoking cannabis:
Treatment for chronic pain
The most common reason why people use cannabis for medicinal purposes is because it reduces the pain associated with other illnesses and disease. The cannabinoids contained in cannabis are helpful for that.
Can help with muscle spasms
There is strong evidence that concludes that cannabis can help with muscle spasms. Muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and diaphragm spasms respond to marijuana effectively.
Doesn’t harm your lungs (so much)
Unlike tobacco smokers, marijuana actually improves lung functioning! Of course it is not because of a therapeutic ingredient in the cannabis. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that smoking pot can help increase your lung capacity without impairing the lungs. It has also been proved that pot smokers have a less chance of contracting cancer as compared to tobacco smokers.
It may help treat glaucoma
Another common reason why medical cannabis is used is to prevent glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye disease which increases the pressure in your eyeballs and damage the optic nerve and your vision. Of course cannabis has been observed to reduce the pressure for a few hours. However it is hoped that a strong cannabis based compound may be developed to treat glaucoma for good.
Although no solid study has been carried out on this topic, people have reported that marijuana has helped reduce and control seizures.
For more effective results, people have been known to use cannabis oil rather than smoking the dried flower. The dosage is precise and so are the medicinal effects. However, you can still use cannabis oil for fun. Add it to food, beverages, smoke it, vape it, or ingest it in other inventive ways. It’s up to you!
