Although somewhat controversial and misunderstood, many in the medical community agree that the therapeutic value of cannabis is too high to be dismissed. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, cannabis has been used by traditional cultures for medicinal purposes for at least 3,000 years.
The controversy surrounding the use of cannabis dates back many years. Therefore, it was banned in the US and many other countries. These laws have prevented the use of an excellent natural treatment for many health conditions. Many people have reservations about using cannabis due to it's stigma and psychotropic effects. However, using the oil is non-intoxicating and completely safe.
Cannabis is a very powerful herb that is shown to be effective in:
supporting pain syndromes
promoting healthy inflammation
reducing stress and anxious feelings
relieving headaches and migraines
promoting a more restful sleep
supporting healthy skin and much more..
Why does cannabis oil benefit so many different health concerns?
Well, the short answer is that cannabis is highly effective at diminishing pain and inflammation. Can you think of a disease or health condition that doesn't come with inflammation and pain? Most of the problems plaguing our world today have this one thing in common. Inflammation is the root of a wide range of illnesses and research is showing that cannabis has a powerful impact on reducing this harmful adversary.
The long answer is that the active components of the cannabis plant mimic an internal chemical harm reduction system in the human body called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that keeps our health in balance. The ECS helps regulate everything from appetite, the immune system, the inflammatory response, aging, and memory. This system helps the body manage crisis and restore itself after trauma. Cannabis has been extensively studied for it's ability to promote balance to our ECS and encourage homeostasis in the body.
There are many different varieties of cannabis that can be used therapeutically. I recommend the use of cannabis essential oil. Cannabis essential oil (cannabis sativa) is extracted from the cannabis plant and is processed through steam distillation. It renders a completely safe and legal substance. It does not contain THC or CBD. It is non-psychoactive and does not produce a positive drug test. Yet, it offers the same powerful benefits of the cannabis plant without the intoxication. Cannabis essential oil is a very potent oil, and only small amounts are needed for it to have powerful effects on the body and mind.
Cannabis essential oil is the master ingredient in our newest essential oil blend Cann-Support. It has powerful muscle & joint support, helps promote a healthy response to inflammation, and promotes relaxation and peace of the body and mind.
