It may sound like a crazy notion, but medical professionals may suggest growing cannabis, and using cannabis oils, to better health.
Cannabis oil can be used to reduce anxiety and depression in both humans and pets as well as control joint pain and even treat some types of cancers.
Relief is provided as the cannabinoids in marijuana interact with the endocannabinoid system, Shu explains. “It’s a series of receptors that run throughout the body,” he says. “The cannabinoids interact with the receptors in the body and modulate things like pain, anxiety, and nausea.”
Growing cannabis at home will not only get growers involved in a multi-billion dollar industry but growers will be able to reap the benefits of the industry with better health.
