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 numerous terrible illnesses.
Cannabis oil is simply the concentrated, distilled form of the plant most frequently known as marijuana. All the plant material is stripped away using a solvent. Cannabis oil has received the most attention for its many medicinal uses despite also being used with other oils to create an assortment of edible cannabis-infused treats.
Like regular cannabis, cannabis oil contains two main ingredients: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the cause of the marijuana high, and CBD is the 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.
Research shows that CBD and its related chemicals, all broadly called cannabinoids, can actively reduce chemotherapy-related pain and other awful symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Other research has also proven that CBD cannabis oil can individually target and kill cancer cells. On the other hand, THC cannabis oil has been found to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and to help veterans suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), helping relieve their anxiety.
Most of such cannabis studies are still in their earliest stages of research. Perhaps cannabis oil can eliminate cancer cells and become an official cure for cancer? But this is something medical professionals have yet to achieve.
Right now, however, there are millions 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. Cannabis oil is still illegal in many countries but slowly 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 merely been misused. Many other medicines have been abused – painkillers and ADHD medication are two of the most popular – yet these pills are still on the market. And what about alcohol abuse?
So, what makes cannabis so terrible? Well, we can tell you this – the good sure outweighs the bad!
