CANNABIS – THE HEALING HERB

Today there are many over prescribed narcotic pain killers, anti-depressants and sedatives that can be substituted partially or completely by cannabis in its many forms for a natural and non addictive alternative, after all cannabis is medicine too!

Here are some examples of the benefits that medical cannabis can provide;

Cannabis can be consumed in many different ways in very small doses all the way up to larger doses whether smoking or eating infused baked goods or candies even topical creams or suppositories all methods of consumption and application are effective however each person is different so finding the right dose with the most comfortable method of intake is all that is required to start enjoying these therapeutic benefits.

There are three families cannabis can be divided into for ease of understanding;

-    Indica
-    Sativa
-    Hybrid

Indica is best suited for treating pain, appitite loss, insomnia, anxiety and symptoms of terminal illnesses. Most varieties of indica are sedative and relaxing. Perfect for evenings or when you don’t need to leave home.

Sativa is best suited for treating depression, lack of motivation, mood stabilization and appitite loss. Most varieties of sativa are energizing, uplifting and tend to inspire creativity. Perfect for daytime and afternoons.

Hybrids are a cross of indica and sativa which are best suited for treating pain with reduced sedation or treating depression / mood stability with less energizing effects. Perfect for day or night.
