The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes to relieve pain is a well documented practice dating back thousands of years. Now, with the aid of technology, cannabis is again stepping into the spotlight, now as an excellent natural form of stress relief.
The main active compound in cannabis that is responsible for stress relief is “Cannabidiol”. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is an incredible compound found within the cannabis plant. It has been found to improve a wide range of different problems and ailments, but most incredibly, CBD has been found to influence the body’s natural production of endocannabinoids, allowing the body to balance itself out in an organic and effective way.
Unlike the other active compound found in cannabis, Tetrahydrocannabinol (more commonly known as THC), CBD is non-psychoactive, hence causing no alteration to perception of the user. With almost no week going by without new studies on the medicinal benefits of CBD being published, CBD as a treatment for stress and other health conditions is becoming increasingly mainstream. Furthermore it is now legal in 50 states in the USA.
