Below are some of the benefits that have been demonstrated with regular use of this drug:
It prevents cancer:
After a two-year study in 1996, THC was found to reduce the occurrence of benign and malignant tumors. In 2012, it was shown that animals that were given a CBD preparation had a much lower risk of getting cancer.
It strengthens your bones:
THC and CBD contribute to the bone metabolism which ensures strong and healthy bones. Age-related bone diseases such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis are counteracted by cannabis use because it helps to renew bone cells.
It strengthens your skin:
The antioxidant effect of cannabis can act as a natural anti-aging agent if you apply a cream, lotion or balm to the skin with the cannabinoids in it. It restores damage from free radicals such as UV radiation and pollution from the air.
It is anti-inflammatory:
Many diseases start with inflammations in the body that are caused by an over-stimulated immune system. A well-functioning endocannabinoid system brings this back into balance. Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD stimulate this system throughout the body to reduce inflammation.
Better recovery after strokes:
Research from 2013 at the University of Nottingham revealed that cannabinoids are effective in reducing the damage in that part of the brain that was effected by stroke. It helps to restore the neurological function.
It protects your brain:
Cannabinoids are neuroprotective (brain nerve protective). This is due to the high concentration and powerful antioxidants in THC and CBD.
It protects our DNA against damage, so it can literally counteract aging. German scientists have shown that a daily dose of THC protects the brain against the degeneration of brain cells and can even restore a brain.
Cannabinoid receptors occur in high concentrations in your digestive tract. The Anandamide is our own natural bodily THC, which activates the digestive process. Taking cannabis stimulates this process and also protects us against inflammation and injury.
It is de-stressing:
By regularly taking a low dose you prevent too much stress in your life, and you reduce the risk of stress-related diseases. In addition, cannabis can also help prevent symptoms of stress such as insomnia.
Cannabinoids open blood vessels and increase blood flow to the heart. It can lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation in the tissue.
