CANNABIS FAQ

[Source]

 

What is Cannabis?

Cannabis has been used as a holistically effective medicinal agent on every continent by all types of people for thousands of years. As powerful international pharmaceutical companies continue to break down under the scrutiny and anger of educated citizens, holistic preventatives and cures (such as cannabis) continue to resurface as sensible health solutions. Natural methods do not produce the extreme side effects that traditional Western medicines cause.

 

The Cannabis plant is broken down into three different types:

Sativa

Sativa plants have less chlorophyll than the Indica counterpart. It has a higher THC content to Cannabidiol (CBD) ratio and offers a much more energetic type of mood. Sativa is used most commonly to elevate a depressed mood. Generally speaking the Sativa plant is the taller and lankier variety, reaching heights of over 5-6 meters. It is characterized by narrow, serrated leaves and loose, spear-like flower clusters that can be extremely resinous.

 

Primarily the effects of Sativas are on the mind and emotions. In this regard they tend to be more stimulating, uplifting, energizing, and creativity enhancing. These benefits can be particularly helpful for the psychological component of many illnesses. Sativas are generally preferred for daytime use or for activities where more focus is required.

 

Benefits Include:

Reduction of Depression

Reduction of Anxiety & Stress

Headache & Migraine Relief

Energy & Stimulation

Reduction of Pain Awareness

Increase in Focus & Creativity

Reduction of Nausea

Appetite Stimulation

 

Indica

Indica has a higher CBD content to THC ratio and induces a more relaxing mood. This is a treatment for anxiety, pain, tremors, and many more applications. Indica is most commonly used to induce appetite. Indica plants are normally shorter and stockier plants, reaching 1-2 meters in height and have wide deeply serrated leaves and a compact and dense flower cluster.

 

The effects of Indicas are predominantly physical although the relief of certain physical symptoms can have an emotional result as well. These effects can be characterized as relaxation, sedation, and pain reduction. Indicas are generally best for later in the day or at bedtime.

 

Benefits Include:

Reduction of Pain

Muscle Relaxation

Spasm Relief

Reduction of Inflammation

Sleep Assistance

Reduction of Anxiety & Stress

Reduction of Nausea

Appetite Stimulation

Headache & Migraine Relief

Reduction of Nerve Pressure in the Eyes

Anti-Convulsion

Reduction in Frequency of Seizures

 

Hybrid

Many of today’s strains have been cross-bred to access the benefits of multiple types and reduce the less desired effects of each separately. Many of the world’s most popular strains are technically hybrids of Sativa & Indica. Know your strains – ask questions!

 

It’s up to you and your caregiver to determine what strains are best for you.  Because this medicine comes from nature (and not a pharmaceutical lab!), it isn’t exact. Nature provides a more gradual and mild path to your healing than synthetic pharmaceuticals. Everyone has a right to know what they are putting in their bodies so it is important to do your own research on how *your* body responds to each strain. Suggested ways to help you find your best medicine: Take notes in a journal or log, save your strain labels, research the web, and seek out the knowledge of your caregiver.

How does Medical Marijuana work?

The active components of cannabis (cannabinoids) mimic the effects of natural chemicals (endocannabinoids) that occur in the human body and brain. These chemicals act as signals that help control how the body functions. A variety of different symptoms and diseases respond to medical marijuana use. NORML.org has many resources for more detailed information.

 

Why Medical Marijuana instead of other forms of medication?

Cannabis has been used as a medicine for thousands of years in China, India, and many other parts of the world. It is one of thousands of herbal methods used in medicine.

For a significant number of patients, including those suffering from AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain among others, Western traditional medications do not provide symptomatic relief as effectively as medicinal cannabis. Conventional medicines tend to cause extreme side effects, some more detrimental than the patient’s condition itself.  This, drug interaction dangers, and addiction are among the negative effects of pharmaceuticals. Medical Marijuana simply offers an alternative to these conventional methods. Patients should not be branded as criminals or forced to suffer needlessly for choosing an alternative – especially one provided by nature.

Importance of Terpenes

Is it true that hemp could wipe out world hunger?

It could surely help in a significant way. Hemp is one of nature’s most complete food sources. It’s loaded with protein, flowing with heart-healthy essential fatty acids, full of fiber and packed with nutrients. The amino acid chains that make up the protein molecules found in hemp are surprisingly similar to those proteins found in human blood. They are easy to digest and allow those who wish the opportunity to meet all dietary requirements with zero saturated fat intake.
