It’s making headlines in the news…and it’s also what people are talking about: medical marijuana (cannabis), which involves using the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions. The marijuana plant contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids. Each one has a different effect on the body.
An increasing number of research studies indicate that medical marijuana can offer a host of therapeutic mental and physical benefits such as:
Relief of chronic pain: Cannabinoids have been linked to providing relief of chronic pain due to their chemical makeup.
Improved lung capacity: Unlike smoking cigarettes, smoking cannabis does not harm the lungs. In fact, some studies suggest it actually helps increase the capacity of the lungs.
Weight loss: Cannabis is linked to aiding your body in regulating insulin while managing caloric intake efficiently.
Fights Cancer: One of the biggest medical benefits, a good amount of evidence shows that cannabinoids can help fight cancer or at least certain types of it.
Lessen arthritis pain: Cannabis is now commonly found as creams and balms that are used by individuals that have arthritis to help ease pain.
