Top Surprising Benefits For the Marijuana Plant

Top Surprising Benefits For the Marijuana Plant. The marijuana plant has already proven its benefits to those with chronic health issues. However, there are other benefits that you might find surprising. There are more than half of the American populations that support medical marijuana use and research. In the Obama's presidency, the federal restrictions on medical cannabis were evident, but in this new Trump administration, the tables have turned, even though, we don't yet know to what extent it will in the future.

The Medical Conditions

It is evident, though, that the marijuana plant has gotten to be socially accepted by mainstream society due to the continual legalization of weed as the medical benefits have been realized. Some of the qualifying medical conditions in states that have legalized the marijuana plant include:

  • Diabetes
  • Chronic pain
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • ALS
  • Epilepsy
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoporosis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Tourette's syndrome
  • Incontinence
  • Hypertension
  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • GI disorders
  • Seizures
  • Huntington's disease

And this is just to name a few of the conditions. There is a reason why the marijuana plant is applicable to so many debilitating medical conditions.

The Main Reason

One main reason is the endocannabinoid system that is located in our connective tissues, internal organs and brains. The endocannabinoid system has the responsibility for the maintenance all of our cellular homeostasis, even when our health is deteriorating. One of the most surprising benefits of the marijuana plant is that even when someone new uses it for medical purposes, the cells react positively because our endocannabinoid system is all hooked up to our cells and tissues.

Prevention and Restoration

The marijuana plant is considered to be restorative and preventative. There are people who don't smoke and would prefer to rely on taking supplements packed with cannabinoids. It doesn't matter the method of consumption as long as you are aware of the positive effect of the marijuana plant as a restorative and preventative medicine. There are many conditions that it will help to ease. In fact, in a research done in August 2009 by Cancer Prevention Researchers, it was found that 10 to 20 years of using marijuana will reduce different types of cell cancer. The CBD in the marijuana plant has been studied and the results show that CBD helps to grow the cells located in the brain. This study counteracts the idea that marijuana consumption kills the cells in the brain. In fact marijuana is effective in treating mental health disorders including depression.

Feeling Good

The marijuana plant is instrumental in making you feel good, if you smoke a strain with a high level of THC. Many recreational cannabis users love that idea because they feel that it releases stress and allows them to relax more than they would if there was no weed.

The Stress

Given the fact that we live in a stressed world of daily regimens, no wonder some people love the marijuana plant.  It is the cannabinoids in the marijuana plant that cause stress relief. If you do not consume those cannabinoids, you will be surprised to know that you will always have stress. The feds do not understand this concept and so they ostracize and persecute people who actually know this fact and do something about it so they can enjoy a less stressed lifestyle. It has also been surprisingly proven that marijuana consumption helps to extinguish painful memories. That is why there is a stereotype that exists as it relates to a forgetful stoner. And that is why weed is good for soldiers suffering from post traumatic disorder.
