Are you a victim of stress and anxiety?
Are you facing any health issues like loss of appetite, cancer, diabetes, migraine, skin issues…?
Are you anticipating cancer treatments, chemo, or radiation? Are you tired of taking drugs and waiting to see its side effects… or already living with them?
If you are the type that willingly takes responsibility for your own health, and you are open to seriously evaluating natural, organic medications while seeking holistic solutions for optimum health, then you are a clear candidate for the plethora of cannabis oil benefits.
Cannabis oil (aka hemp oil) is typically extracted from either Cannabis sativa or the Cannabis indica species by either low-pressure steam distillation methods or the newer and more preferable CO2 extraction process which separates the cannabinoid resins from the cannabis flower leaving behind a pure oil with no chemical residues.
It is one of the most unusual oils in the essential oil range, and the reason for this is the plant from which it is derived. The cannabis plant is to a botanist and neurochemist what gold ore is to a metallurgist.
Cannabis oil benefits extend far beyond the euphoric ‘high’ which mankind has enjoyed unmolested for over 10,000 years. Cannabis has been used for both health and religious purposes. The benefits of Cannabis essential oil become magnified when it comes to its effects on many medical conditions, diseases, symptomologies, general health and psychological well-being.
It is also important to remember that Cannabis oil(s) and Cannabis “concentrates” containing the THC cannabinoid and has been “decarboxylated” ( heated beyond a relatively low temperature) is a psychoactive substance in concentrated form. So proper dosage is important to consider if you are new to it. Only adult use should be considered without the direction of a physician.
And it is very important to be aware that combinations of cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) are prescribed for children with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder instead of synthetically produced drugs with dangerous side effects. These risks are no longer necessary in many cases. But, it clearly stands to reason that the benefits of Cannabis oils can only become a reality for someone if the physician and/or parent(s) are informed about the benefits of natural Cannabis derived oils and its individual components like CBD.
Cannabis oil is known for its powerful antioxidant properties which further contributes to heart health by lowering ‘bad’ cholesterol. Both hemp oil and hemp protein powder have high levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids which lower LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels and stimulate our metabolic processes.
With an accelerated metabolism, our ingested and stored fats will burn more quickly and are less likely to accumulate on the inner walls of your arteries. Many forms of Cannabis oils have been shown to improve circulation and blood pressure thus reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Affecting over 400 million people worldwide, Diabetes is characterized by prolonged periods of high blood sugar levels and low levels of HDL cholesterol. Cannabis users have been found in studies to have lower levels of insulin resistance than former cannabis users or non-users.
Cannabis users have also been found to have lower fasting insulin and insulin resistance levels showing that cannabis can help prevent the onset of diabetes as well as help to mitigate the typical symptoms of existing patients.
No one likes to bear or see anyone else in pain – be it chronic or acute. Whether you are suffering from arthritic pain and inflammation or coping with the effects of chemotherapy, Cannabis oil has been proven by thousands of patients to be one of your best sources for relief.
For centuries, Cannabis oils have been widely prescribed as an effective pain reliever with no side effects other than it’s psychoactive characteristics which when properly dosed can provide further relief from related patient symptoms. It can even ease the neuropathic pain which many people suffering from cancer and neurologic diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and fibromyalgia patients (to name only a few).
There are certain active components in Cannabis oil that prevent cancer from developing and also reduce tumor size, or even eliminate it.
Cannabis oil is used to prevent cancer from spreading and/or occurring in the first place because scientists have found that many cannabinoids have positive and powerful effects like:
Triggers the death of cancer cells in a process called apoptosis
Prevents the division of cells
Suppresses cancer cell production and reduces the risk of cancerous cells spreading throughout your body and damaging healthy tissues
If you are facing stress and anxiety because of the tension in your routine and/or lifestyle, then try cannabis oil. It is very popular for reducing stress and anxiety as well as having many health benefits with virtually no ill side effects. The cannabinoids in cannabis like the famed THC is arguably the best organic substance for stimulating the release of healthy pleasure hormones, relaxing your mind, as well as reducing stress and anxiety.
Cannabis oil works like magic if you are suffering from insomnia, or not getting a peaceful, undisturbed sleep. This is because cannabis oil relaxes your mind and body. It has been proven to reduce anxiety in some patients inducing a lower energy level that helps ‘clear the head’ and ultimately assist in more restful sleep at night. Scientists warn us of the importance of sound sleep and encourage us to explore natural remedies before using synthetic drugs and opioids.
If you have been ill recently and lost your appetite, battling weight disorders, or you are not able to gain weight, an excellent recommendation supported by many physicians is the intake of Cannabis oil, or raw Cannabis.
This is because Cannabis oil benefits you by regulating your appetite, inducing hunger signals as well as stimulating your digestive system and intestinal flora. It is in fact a key treatment for Crohn’s disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), so it’s important to understand this benefit too.
Hormonal imbalances can cause many undesirable conditions that create issues for our bodies, and so it is important to maintain hormonal balance. Hemp oil contains relatively high levels gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which is ultimately converted to prostaglandin, a protective hormone known to regulate hormonal balance.
Cannabis oil contains powerful components that protect the skin including omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. It can be applied topically to promote glowing and fresh looking skin, and it is very effective in the reduction of wrinkles.
The anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of Cannabis oil also protects your skin from acne, psoriasis, and eczema… among other skin and scalp problems.
Asthma is the most common respiratory disease. It affects millions of people around the world and causes many deaths each year. If you are one of these folks, you need to know that Cannabis oil is an excellent treatment for asthma because of its natural anti-inflammatory effects. It also has the ability to expand your bronchial tubes which in turn will allow for higher oxygen uptake to the individual cells of your body.
Many people suffer from migraines and headaches. Although some people do not experience relief after onset begins, studies have shown that the number of migraines over a given period of time will diminish significantly after consistent use of Cannabis in most any delivery form.
Although it is true that different delivery methods provide different results for different people, studies show about 85% of migraine sufferers report relief after using Cannabis products. Cannabis essential oil that is high in CBD (cannabidiol) appears to be the most effective. Pure CBD oil is also recommended for those who prefer a non-psychoactive Cannabis solution.
Vegetarians generally fail to get the right balance of omega 3/omega 6 fatty acids and so organic hemp oil benefits vegetarians in a somewhat unique way in that it is the best choice of plant-based essential fatty acids which are not produced by our bodies yet “essential” for achieving and maintaining optimum health.
It’s evident that the list of organic hemp oil benefits derived from the apparently endless bounty from the Cannabis plant is increasing in number. The list keeps getting longer each year that goes by.
Cannabis alleviates pain and anxiety, it treats illness and disease, and does this without the serious side effects of traditional drug and chemical treatments or other non-holistic rationalizations.
A better understanding of the Cannabis plant reveals the amazingly symbiotic relationship that exists between its own chemistry and human chemistry. After learning the wide range of Cannabis oil health benefits, many of you will want to begin incorporating it into your own health regimen, or improve on current products and delivery methods.
Once you become aware of the facts… which you now are, you simply can’t afford to ignore the benefits of Cannabis oil. I consider it among the highest in value and most important compliments to my own health regimen.
Without it, my neurologic and immune system functions would simply not be what they are today and hopefully continue to improve over time and consistent use. And in the meantime, please consider sharing your experiences here at Cannabis Animus whether they be your own or on behalf of family and friends.
