Health benefits associated with Marijuana

The Rastafarian Society of Kenya filed a petition seeking to legalize Marijuana. The group raised claims about the importance and health benefits associated with the drug.

Below are some of the health benefits associated with Marijuana.

1.Helps treat depression

Depression is commonly widespread without most people even realising they have it. Cannabis contains compounds known as cannabinoids that helps in stabilising moods which can ease depression when taken in monitored dosage.

2.Relief of Acute pains

There are plenty of chemical compounds in cannabis, many of which are cannabinoids. The compounds have been linked to providing relief of chronic pain due to their chemical content. Which is why cannabis’ by-product such as medical cannabis is commonly used for chronic pain relief.

3.Ability to fight cancer

One of the biggest medical benefits of cannabis is its link to fighting cancer. There is a good amount of evidence that shows cannabis compouds can help fight cancer.

4.Help lose weight

If you look around, you will notice that the frequent cannabis user is usually not overweight. That is because cannabis is linked to helping your body in regulating insulin while managing the intake of calories efficiently.

5.Improves the capacity of the lungs

This is interesting. Unlike smoking cigarettes, when smoking cannabis in the form of cannabis your lungs aren’t harmed. Actually, a study found that cannabis helps increase the capacity of the lungs rather than cause any damage to it.

6.Relieve anxiety

While Cannabis is commonly known to cause anxiety, there is a way around that. Taken in monitored dosage, cannabis can help alleviate anxiety and calm users down.
