For decades marijuana has had a negative connotation associated with it. But as legalization spreads throughout the nation and the world, the actual health benefits of marijuana are starting to surface. Marijuana isn’t just something to smoke and get high with anymore. It can actually be quite healthy for you.
Raw marijuana, which is totally different than what you will find at your local dispensary produces THCA instead of THC. THC is the chemical that gets people high. THCA doesn’t and instead has high content in Fiber, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Iron, Calcium and Folate. These vitamins, minerals, and fiber are great for fighting blood clots, keeping immune systems healthy, supplying blood with oxygen, bone strengthening, DNA repair and overall, a good diet.
Nonetheless, marijuana itself has a ton of health benefits you probably didn’t know about. Check them out:
Alternative To Smoking
Making food out of marijuana is not only better than inhaling marijuana into our lungs, but actually makes the effects more potent and last longer. It’s a win-win on both fronts.
After many studies, marijuana has been clinically proven to reduce nausea and increase appetite.
Taking marijuana orally makes the effects last 4 to 6 hours rather than 1 to 2 hours. This is great because it is more capable of neutralizing and relieving any pain you may be experiencing.
Marijuana is high in antioxidants, which helps fight stress and diseases such as cancer. In fact the National Cancer Institute website states that marijuana can not only help treat symptoms of cancer such as pain and discomfort, but can also help fight it.
The benefits of marijuana are awesome and this is only the beginning. As mentioned earlier, you don’t have to smoke marijuana to reap the benefits, you can also ingest it orally in the form of oil, which can be used to cook anything you please.
