1. Relief Pain
Did you know that humans use marihuana to treat pain since 2900 B.C
Most recent studies showed that certain components of marijuana, including CBD, are responsible for its pain-relieving effects.
The human body has a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS)
, which is involved in regulating processes of a variety of functions such as sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response.
The body generates endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system.
A couple of scientific researches has shown that CBD helps to reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, decreasing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.
For instance, the study in rats found that CBD injections decreased pain response to surgical incision, while another rat study showed that oral CBD treatment considerably lowered sciatic nerve pain and inflammation.
Furthermore, some human studies have discovered that a combination of CBD and THC is effective in treating pain related to multiple sclerosis and arthritis
