The world and its societal norms are constantly changing. One perfect example of this right now is in the Canadian Cannabis Industry. Cannabis, often referred to by its more derogatory name ‘Marijuana’ – was once labeled an illegal substance classified as a “Schedule 1” drug by the Canadian (and most other) governments. However, today, after years of persecution and suppression, cannabis is finally a legal substance to own and consume. A big reason for this change of stance and general acceptance towards the cannabis plant is partly due to all the promising news of its health benefits. It’s amazing how fast these benefits are being spread across media, nation, and the entire world!
Some people still consider cannabis as a negative drug just because they’ve been conditioned to perceive it in that light. On the contrary, those who consume and utilize it for health benefits often do not share the same stigmatized sentiments. Medical cannabis has been proven to provide a multitude of health benefits. In fact, it has been scientifically confirmed that this plant has shown to make improvements to one’s overall health.
The bad news is that these views aren’t shared by everyone and in some countries cannabis is still illegal. But one thing is for sure: this amazing plant has many medicinal properties that have been scientifically proven. Here in this short article we’ll give you some amazing things about cannabis that you probably didn’t know.

It promotes deep relaxation in the body which then lessens the pains caused by period symptoms such as cramps, muscle fatigue, migraines, nausea, etc. Strains and items that are concentrated in CBD will give your more of the medicinal properties of the endo-cannabinoid system.

CBD is a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps promote feelings of calm, relaxation and well-being by activating the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are a type of fat-based neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, pregnancy, during pre- and postnatal development, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis. CBD has recently been announced by the World Health Organization as being a viable treatment and medication for epilepsy and shouldn’t even be considered a drug.
