The Benefits of THC

Although THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis, is still classed as an illegal substance in the U.K, research has shown that THC in conjunction with CBD offers many health benefits.

THC is most commonly used for it’s psychoactive affects which leaves it’s users feeling relaxed and happy. Other examples of psychoactive substances include caffeine, alcohol and cocaine.

Cannabis has been used for centuries across the globe but what are its benefits?

Chronic pain: Pain is the most common condition treated with cannabis and has a similar effect to over-the-counter painkillers, it can also reduce inflammation and associated pain due to inflammation. For those who struggle with chronic pain, cannabis compared to traditional pharmaceutical painkillers is much safer, more natural, and non-addictive. It has been found to be effective in a variety of conditions, including arthritis, migraine, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and cancer.

Vomiting and Nausea: Cannabis can been used to ease vomiting and nausea and is commonly used by Cancer patients as an antiemetic treatment to combat the harsh, nauseating side effects of chemotherapy.

Protects the brain: Cannabis is considered to be neuroprotectant which means that it protects brain cells from damage, it also stimulates the growth of new brain cells, a process known as neurogenesis.

Increases Appetite: Cannabis interacts with the receptors in the brain that stimulate hunger. By mimicking the brains natural endocannabinoid activity, THC acts on the same neural pathway to allow us to smell and taste with greater sensitivity which makes us eat more.

Depression: Cannabis acts on the receptors in the brain which increase the release of dopamine and serotonin, the neurotransmitters associated with the mood.

Antioxidant: Exogenous and endogenous oxidants are the major cause of over a hundred human diseases. Cannabis is a potent antioxidant with neuroprotective properties. Endocannabinoids and plant cannabinoids protect neurons from exposure to toxic levels of glutamate, a neurotransmitter that plays a role in a number of neurodegenerative disorders. A regular intake of antioxidants is essential for maintaining good health.

Despite the positive medical effects of Cannabis it is illegal in the U.K.  It is a class B drug which carries a sentence of up to 5 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both for possession and up to 14 years imprisonment, an unlimited fine or both for supply and production.
