Judging by the 500,000+ Google search results it received, there is no doubt that cannabis oil has become a very popular topic — especially as a potentially miraculous treatment for a large amount of terrible illnesses and ailments.
Cannabis oil is simply the concentrated, distilled form of the plant most frequently known as marijuana, with all the plant material stripped away with the use of a solvent. Even though it has been used with other oils in order to create an assortment of edible cannabis-infused treats, cannabis oil has received the most attention for its many medicinal uses.
Like regular cannabis, cannabis oil contains two main ingredients: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and cannabidiol (CBD) – the first being the cause of the marijuana high, and the second being most active ingredient in marijuana. Typically, oils marketed for medicinal use contain much less THC than conventional marijuana but both ingredients have been used for their curative powers.
When it comes to CBD and its related chemicals, all broadly called cannabinoids, there is some research showing that they can actively reduce chemotherapy-related pain and other awful symptoms like nausea and vomiting. In addition to this, other research has proven that CBD cannabis oil can individually target and kill cancer cells.
On the other hand, THC cannabis oil has been said to delay the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease as well as help veterans who are suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in helping relieve their anxiety.
Unfortunately, most of the cannabis studies are still in their earliest stages of research. Perhaps cannabis oil can eliminate cancer cells and become to official cure for cancer – something medical professionals have yet to achieve.
But at this moment there are an unbelievable number of people suffering from cancer and believing that is a death sentence they simply must accept, while there might actually be a cure out there. While cannabis oil is still illegal in many countries, slowly but surely the bans on it are being lifted – and for good reason. The marijuana plant has received so much criticism and people have built up this notorious weed reputation – where in reality it is a medicine that has been misused. Many other medicines have been abused – painkillers and ADHD medication are two of the most popular and yet these pills are still on the market.
So, what makes cannabis so terrible? Well, we can tell you this – the good sure is outweighing the bad.
