Beauty and Health Benefits of Cannabis

August 22, 2021

We have heard more and more about the healing properties of marijuana lately. However, there is a big difference between going to a cannabis pharmacy and getting oil or ointment or packing a cigarette.

There are many dangers to using marijuana. Those who like and often smoke a joint (a cigarette containing dried marijuana with or without tobacco) are at risk of developing mental disorders, which is doubly true of young people whose brain is still growing. Vape pens offer a safer solution to smoking cannabis cigarettes. 

The cause is the psychotropic substance THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is known to record the development of schizophrenia regularly.

Conscious gambling with mental health

According to research results, it is 2-3 times higher for regular users! In other words, teenagers who smoke marijuana are much more likely to suffer from various mental health problems in adulthood, whether or not they have a genetic predisposition to these problems.

In people with hereditary predispositions to mental disorders, marijuana can act as a trigger. According to experts, THC is especially dangerous for those who have bipolar disorder (a mental illness characterized by recurring episodes of depression and mania), as it strengthens the manic phase of the disease.

 

Practical help with migraines and dementia

However, Cannabis also has several beneficial effects, thanks to its other active ingredient CBD (cannabidiol), which, unlike THC, is not psychoactive and offers hitherto unsuspected therapeutic effects.

It has been shown to help with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, sclerosis, epilepsy, migraines and pain in general, and Tourette’s syndrome (a condition characterized by movement and sound tics first occurring in childhood or adolescence and often associated with associated behavioral disorders).

CBD also acts as an excellent antioxidant that helps lower blood cholesterol levels, greatly relieving the heart (increased cholesterol levels contribute to heart attack).

Elixir for healthy and youthful skin

Marijuana has excellent effects on the skin, so it is recommended to treat skin inflammation, eczema, and psoriasis. CBD also helps cancer patients better cope with the side effects of chemotherapy. Depending on the type of health problem, you can use hemp ointments, oils, gels or other products.

It is also worth mentioning cannabis teas, which work well against stress, anxiety, and insomnia and support immunity, weight loss, or good digestion in combination with other ingredients.
