Weed Healing Effect #1 – Eases Chronic Digestive Inflammatory Diseases Symptoms
Chronic digestive inflammatory diseases are basically a set of health disorders which disrupt the normal healthy functioning of the digestive system. Because it is chronic, it cannot (theoretically) be healed, only managed as well as it can be. The acute symptoms burst from time to time, lowering the patient’s quality of life tremendously and inducing significant distress.
The two most known chronic digestive inflammatory diseases are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Crohn’s disease is one of the most uncomfortable digestive health issues you can have. It is a chronic disease with acute bouts of symptoms which are triggered on and off by unknown biological or psychological factors.
Conventional medicine has yet to find an effective solution to keeping this disorder in check. However, cannabis may be of much more help.
A scientific study has shown that consuming cannabis helped the patients suffering from Crohn’s disease to ease their symptoms and drastically improve the quality of life while doing so.
The same study has shown that another similar chronic inflammatory digestive disorder, ulcerative colitis, can also be managed much more effectively using cannabis.
These are very good news for these patients. Their anguish and desperation for a cure can be soothed using a simple and healing plant while other more complex healthcare strategies have failed.
Weed Healing Effect #2 – Soothes Nervous System
Cannabis is a very interesting plant when it comes to the effects it has on the human central nervous system.
Although different strains have different physiological and psychological effects on the user, it is generally considered that cannabis enhances both profound relaxation as well as acute awareness.
As with any other medicine, the user’s physical and psychological condition will determine the effects of cannabis. If someone is too stressed then cannabis will induce a profound relaxation and a feeling of “letting go”. If somebody is not active enough then cannabis might induce acute awareness and a subtle buzz of energy to motivate them to actively use their energy.
Weed Healing Effect #3 – Empowers Emotional Processing
Cannabis is healing not just for the body, but also for the body and soul.
A study proved the fact that consuming cannabis can dramatically help in emotional processing. Everybody is different so there are various methods through which this can be achieved – be it screaming, laughing, dancing or trembling in fear.
In the alternative healing world it is well known that we store repressed emotions in our body – especially in our organs and muscles. Due to the profound relaxation that cannabis induces, that is how it helps release all those repressed emotions and facilitates their integration and release.
Whatever is hidden deep down in our subconscious and the memories we buried there, they will slowly come up to the surface with the help of cannabis. That is why it is important to consume this medicine in a sacred and safe place, as a healing ceremony and a healing ritual (as opposed to consuming it socially or in crowded places).
Weed Healing Effect #4 – Deepens Your Spiritual Connection
Cannabis is usually associated with laid-back people who are nice, genuine and very friendly. It is not a coincidence.
This healing medicine is a potent tool for deepening your connection with your spiritual side. This goes hand in hand with having compassion for other beings, being aware of your place in the world you live in and the consequences of your actions.
Generally speaking, cannabis enables an individual to see past their own limiting paradigms and emotional blind spots. It can enhance the birth of new paradigms and helps us upgrade the level of consciousness we live with.
You may feel more connected with everything around you – people, animals, plants and so on. You may feel more “at home” in the world and more connected with your spiritual side.
Cannabis can help you achieve all these and much more – all you have to do is use it with profound respect and consideration.
Weed Healing Effect #5 – Treats Depression & Lowers Anxiety
The rates of depression and anxiety has exploded in the last decades. Conventional means of treatment often fail their users – hence people have started looking for more natural and effective treatments.
Cannabis is becoming more and more popular as a natural cure for depression and anxiety. A study has proven that cannabis may be one of the most powerful natural treatments for both conditions.
These are only a handful of the powerful healing effects of cannabis. Numerous stories have been published lately on the powerful positive effects cannabis can have on treating cancer, psychiatric diseases and many others.
Every day people are becoming more and more convinced of this powerful medicine’s effects on both body and soul. You do not have to wait for medical science to catch up and prove this – try it for yourself and you will become convinced of the truth. Your overall health and wellness will benefit tremendously from this.
