The use of cannabis for health and wellness dates back thousands of years. In more recent times, research into the benefits of cannabis for the management of specific conditions and for overall wellness has supported the consumption of this plant for a wide range of different physical and mental health benefits.

Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System

Cannabis contains a range of different cannabinoids, which are simply chemicals in the plant. These chemicals work together with the endocannabinoid system that exists in the body, providing a range of different benefits.

The endocannabinoid system is a large cellular signaling system that includes different types of receptors. The cannabinoids bind to the various receptors, helping to manage pain, reduce stress, improve sleep, and aid mood regulation.

Cannabis and Mental Health

Medical marijuana is recognized as an effective option in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It has been known to help with epilepsy and is also used in the treatment of other neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Cannabis can be consumed recreationally to help relieve stress and to relax and calm the mind. When combined with the muscle relaxation and relief, cannabis becomes an effective alternative to prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Overall Wellness

Cannabis can affect everyone differently so it’s important to consider your dosage when consuming for specific effects or results.
