Cannabis-infused pain products are the best known secret worldwide and have been for years. What most people do not realize is, not only do most infused products have Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in them, but the majority have Cannabidiol (CBD) in them as well. CBD is the chemical in cannabis that keeps proving a number of health benefits. According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, benefits include, but are not limited to:
Antiemetic- Reduces nausea and vomiting
Anticonvulsant- Suppresses seizure activity
Antipsychotic- Combats psychosis disorders
Anti-inflammatory- Combats inflammatory disorders
Anti-oxidant- Combats neurodegenerative disorders
Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer- Combats tumor and cancer cells
Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant- Combats anxiety and depression disorders
Different strains of cannabis have more CBD than others, and the same goes for cannabis-infused medications. Most people do not know that you can purchase products with just CBD in them, which have no THC psychoactive effect. CBD is non-psychoactive (does not get you "high"), so this makes it safe for just about everyone, including children and pets.
The war on cannabis has gone on way too long, and now all the health benefits are being proved with new technology at a rapid pace. I speak from my own medical issues when I say that the natural cannabis plant is the most beneficial drug available to mankind.
