Cannabis oil is widely beneficial and is considered as one of the most effective oils for alleviation of certain conditions and illnesses.
Researchers believe there are at least two active chemicals in cannabis that have medicinal applications: cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, impacts the brain without a high, and tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, has pain relieving properties.
The health benefits of cannabis oil are caused by these medicinal applications. Here are the top 15 health benefits of cannabis oil:
Cannabis oil is often suggested for people who suffer from chronic pain, inflammation and occasionally in emergency pain relief. This is the reason why people who have been diagnosed with cancer turn to cannabis-related products, including cannabis oil, when they need relief from the pain of the chemotherapy or the disease itself.
HELPS CONTROL EPILEPTIC SEIZURES
The effects of cannabis oil, more specifically the cannabinoids such as THC, help to control seizures by attaching to the brain cells that are responsible for regulating relaxation and controlling excitability.
SLOWS ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE
The effects of cannabis oil may be able to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. THC, the active chemical in cannabis oil, slows the establishment of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that makes them. Amyloid plaques are what kill brain cell and ultimately cause Alzheimer’s disease.
IMPROVES HEART HEALTH
The elusive oils in cannabis oil can help improve heart health by balancing out the negative oils that are in a person’s system. In addition, the oil can stimulate antioxidant processes such as maximising the health of the cardiovascular system and scraping off excess cholesterol.
Eases Multiple Sclerosis Pain
One of the health effects of cannabis oil includes the ease of pain symptoms from multiple sclerosis. The THC in the cannabis oil attaches to the receptors in the nerves and muscles in order to relieve pain. There are also studies that suggest THC helps to control muscle spasms.
It’s a well-known fact that those who consume cannabis in any form notice an increased appetite. However, the use of cannabis oil can help you regulate your appetite and encourage hunger. At the same time, it can stimulate your digestive system in order to operate on a regular level.
TREATS INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES
Studies suggest one of the effects of cannabis oil could aid patients with inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. The THC and CBD chemicals interact with the body’s cells, which plays an important role in immune responses and gut functions. The THC-like compounds that the body produce increase the permeability of the intestines, which allows bacteria in. The cannabinoids from cannabis oil block these body-made cannabinoids helping to prevent the permeability and ensuring the intestinal cells have a tightened bond
