Is Medical Cannabis a “Miracle Drug”? You Might Be Surprised…

medical cannabis

What gets lost in all the talk about the recreational legalization of cannabis is the reason we got here in the first place: the health benefits of medical cannabis.

Many people have mixed feelings about medical cannabis – and for good reason. For decades, marijuana has been lumped together with “the drug culture” which includes heroin, cocaine, and other hard drugs. Now it is legal, yet some still associate it with the seediness of other drug use. Even medical cannabis, in the United States especially, is often prescribed with a wink.

Medical Cannabis Can Treat Many Medical Conditions

Medical professionals hate to use the word “miracle drug” for good reason. That places it in the same category as fantastical stories from the Fountain of Youth or cure-alls.

But cannabis does have many medical uses, even if they aren’t all completely understood.

Coffee and weed seem like a match made in heaven.

Perfect for a wake and bake, ideally you get the psychoactive effects of cannabis with the energy of coffee.

Soon you could be swimming in a sea of pleasant aromas and tastes, similar to a fine pairing of wine and cheese.

But the combination has to be taken with caution, as the science is still coming in on how the two chemically combine in our brains and the effect it really can have on our bodies.

Read on for a tour of the world of coffee and cannabis together.

Coffee and cannabis studies

Before jumping into how to pair cannabis and coffee, it’s best to know the science that has been discovered behind the combination.

In 2014, a study by the Journal of Neuroscience was done to determine the effects of cannabis and coffee taken together.

In the study, squirrel monkeys were given caffeine and could get themselves high by pulling a lever, which triggered an intravenous release of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the chemical that causes cannabis’ psychoactive effect.…

CBD Oil Benefits: Why Use CBD Oil?

CBD Oil Benefits

The press has been busy talking about CBD oil benefits now for some time, some with a controversial angles. Yet, this very useful and increasingly popular substance has helped many people live more comfortable lives. So what is it, and what’s all the fuss about?

What is CBD Oil?

CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol  is an extract of the marijuana plant.

But here’s the thing: CBD oil may be extracted from the cannabis plant, but it does not include any of the element that induces that high – known as THC. So, you get the benefits – more on that in a moment – without the psychoactive part. In other words, CBD oil is absolutely harmless, and in most states of the USA, completely legal.
