If you wondered how liquid gold looks like, you should Google “Cannabis Essential Oil”.
Its most important benefits include the ability to reduce stress and anxiety, deal with insomnia, increase appetite, improve digestion, reduce pain, prevent certain types of cancer, and protect your skin. These are not just words, these are scientific facts. Just keep reading, and you’ll see what I am talking about.
Basically it’s a greenish-goldish liquid that is considered highly volatile. Its components are very potent, including monoterpenes and other highly active organic compounds.
Apart from its extensive medical use, it is used for perfumes, soap, and candle production. Some people use it to make food. As the oil is really powerful, a very small amount is needed to produce a desirable effect.
Health Benefits of Cannabis Essential Oil for Health
- Anxiety and Stress Relief: One of the most popular and well-known uses of Cannabis Essential Oil is for stress and anxiety management. The natural compounds found in Cannabis Essential Oil, including the famous THC, which is responsible for defining cannabis as a drug, stimulate the release of hormones of happiness and relax the mind, reducing stress and inducing a sense of calm and relaxation. The research conducted by the University of Haifa in Israel determined that cannabinoids can relieve traumatic experience.
- Problems With Sleep. This liquid gold can do magic for people who suffer from insomnia. This oil helps you fall asleep like a baby by relaxing your body and mind. It decreases your heart rate naturally and clears your head before you have a restful sleep. Patients with PTSD often suffer from horrible insomnia or nightmares.This study suggests that cannabis can “rewire” painful memories and provide a good night rest.
- Appetite Stimulation. It’s well known that people who use marijuana notice an increase in appetite, which is called “the munchies”. However, Cannabis Essential Oil can help regulate appetite and provoke hunger, while stimulating your digestive system to function normally. This can help people who want to gain weight quickly, and who need energy for recovery from an illness or injury. This study published in the International Weekly Journal of Science determined that cannabis prompts the release of hunger-promoting hormones which helps people to stimulate appetite.
- Analgesic Effect. The oil works as a painkiller and is regularly recommended to people with inflammation, chronic pain, and even acute pain. There is a very good reason why people suffering from cancer often resort to cannabis products when the pain of chemotherapy or the disease itself becomes unbearable.
Although marijuana has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy, its reputation as a drug has complicated everything. In some parts of the world, marijuana is still illegal, and users are punished for its cultivation and consumption. However, the attitude to the oil is getting better: it’s regarded as the most effective medicine for treating certain diseases and conditions.
