Why Medicinal Cannabis Works
Quick Facts About Medicinal Cannabis
Medicinal cannabis has been used to treat and or alleviate the symptoms of disease for thousands of years.
Medicinal Cannabis was, depending on the culture, the first, second or third most-important and most-used medicine for 2/3’s of the world’s population for at least 3000 years until the turn of the 20th century.
Cannabis is a plant that has over 400 compounds and is the “single most versatile herbal remedy on Earth” according to Dr. Ethan Russo, president of the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS).
Medicinal cannabis can be used to heal and/or alleviate symptoms such as pain, anxiety, inflammation, mood disorders, GI disorders, and damaged cells.
One of the reasons cannabis is so beneficial in so many different ways is that the human body has an innate system, the endocannabinoid system (ECS), that is designed to work with the very chemicals that exist in cannabis plants!
The ECS is a newly discovered physiological control system found in ALL vertebrates including humans.
The ECS regulates sleep, appetite, pleasure sensation, the immune system, mood, psychological well-being and memory.
