Health Benefits of Cannabis
The Health Benefits of THC and CBD, the cannabinoids found in Hemp and Marijuana are far reaching. There are more and more studies coming to light, praising the powerful effects that activated cannabinoids can have on the mind and body.
THC and CBDs are strong antioxidants that protect from free radical damage and promote neurogenesis (the forming of new neurons). This is especially exciting in reference to brain health and recovery. They have been shown to protect from neurodegenerative effects of opiates and alcohol, and even protect the body from the side effects of other doctor prescribed medications.
By suppressing inflammatory responses in immune cells, activated cannabinoid receptors can ward off inflammation that may otherwise run rampant in the body, causing pain and potentially neurological disorders.
