Earth’s medicinal plant contains ingredients that makes it one of the most natural medicines on the planet. Not only is there no risk for an addiction: It’s also one of the top medicines against many different kinds of mental illnesses. To give a further of explanation of the strength of the medicine, here are five different mental illnesses that can be treated by this plant:
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also more famously known as PTSD, is an anxiety condition caused after experiencing a disturbing event, such as military combat, sexual assault. One major contributor of PTSD is endocannabinoid deficiency, in which the body stops producing enough endocannabinoids to fill receptor sites, which leads to difficulties in relief of painful memories. The cannabinoids in this plant play a therapeutic role in replacing these missing endocannabinoids, which then can help bring relief of bad memories.
If you’re suffering from insomnia, then taking a hit before bedtime could do wonders for your sleep. In general, Indicas tends to be the better option when looking for a strain to smoke before bed because of the higher amount of CBD which allows the body to become more relaxed and sleepy.
Very small doses of THC can slow the production of beta-amyloid proteins, one of the main contributors to Alzheimer’s Disease. This was discovered by a preclinical study made by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in 2014, which also supported the effectiveness of THC and how it prohibits the growth of toxic amyloid plagues that can also contribute to Alzheimer’s.
Similar to PTSD, this medicinal plant has been shown to be an effective treatment against depression caused by chronic stress. In a 2015 study done by the University of Buffalo, the results showed that stress caused by a decrease in natural cannabinoids molecules found in the brain can lead to depression, which the plant can replace.
