As a mild psychedelic, marijuana promotes feelings of well-being but the wellness benefits do not stop there. Here we’ll be taking you through a look at how cannabis can help mental health, highlighting not only the medicinal effects of the active ingredients of medical marijuana but also showing you how clearing your mind with marijuana will ease depression, help you focus, and open up a whole new world of vigor & vitality.

How Cannabis Heals the Brain & Body?

Across the 483 or more active ingredients of medical marijuana, there are countless benefits for the brain & body as a whole, while supporting your emotional well-being as well. Cannabinoid makes up 40% of all marijuana plant extracts, making both smoked herb & oil extracts powerful phytocannabinoid supplements. Phytocannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system, acting as powerful antioxidants which protect neurons against degeneration. This makes cannabis a neuroprotective agent which prevents diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia, but more on this soon. Both CBD and THC have profound neuroprotective benefits, with CB1 receptors adding to their protective effect of THC. From preventing liver toxicity to protecting neural networks, cannabis is a healing herb with therapeutic benefits spanning the entire body. Yet, among its most powerful effects is how CB1 and CB2 receptors stimulate emotional & cognitive wellness.
