Do we really need THC — the compound that produces the “high” in cannabis?
Many believe it has no health benefits at all. Yet, this is far from the case.
THC attaches to CB1 receptors in the brain, leading to a release of dopamine. This is what leads to that feeling of euphoria at high doses.
While that can be good or bad, depending on your perspective, you might be surprised to hear that THC offers real health benefits … IF taken in moderation.
Like managing pain and reducing inflammation. (THC actually has 20 times the anti-inflammatory strength of aspirin.)
Or reducing nausea and stimulating appetite. (This is great for those undergoing chemotherapy.)
Or protecting the nervous system. (THC actually helps manage autism, ADHD, epilepsy and post-stroke symptoms.)
Here are some more benefits of this natural wonder drug …
Protects Brain Cells
A big cannabis myth is that it kills brain cells. Science shows the exact opposite.
While most drugs are neurotoxic, THC is considered a neuroprotectant … it actually protects brain cells from damage!
Helps you sleep
Trials have found that oral doses of THC help insomniacs fall asleep faster. And it may even improve breathing and reduce sleep interruptions.
Great news for sufferers of sleep apnea!
THC has shown to be quite effective for treating post-traumatic stress disorder.
PTSD can include agitation, severe anxiety, depression, insomnia, nightmares and social isolation.
It’s estimated that 8% of Americans (24.4 million people) suffer from this crippling condition … equal to the population of Texas.
Some psychiatrists even say THC-rich cannabis is the only treatment for PTSD!
All this is just one more reason to join the cannabis investing bandwagon now.
