Cannabis and THC; 4 surprising benefits you might not know about


With the increase of legal use of hemp along with other cannabis products, more and more consumers are now quite curious about this psychoactive plant. In 2018, it was removed from the classification of Schedule 1 drugs through the Farm Bill, and its legalization status has been growing ever since. There are two main components in marijuana; THC and CBD. CBD or cannabidiol is responsible for many benefits without producing a psychoactive effect, while THC provides benefits along with a ‘high’. Both of these have the ability to interact with the human body’s endocannabinoid system. THC offers quite a few benefits, out of which we will talk about the 4 most prominent ones.

Cancer-related symptoms

We all know that quality of life can seriously go down in the last few months of a cancer patient’s life. Almost 1 out of every 6 people in the world develop cancer, be it benign or malignant. The symptoms that one needs to deal with, along with the side effects of chemotherapy can get quite overwhelming. Chemotherapy can lead to pain, discomfort, loss of hair, and even nausea and vomiting. A lot of cancer patients swear by the power of marijuana in helping them deal with ailments such as nausea, vomiting, a lack of appetite, and much more. Most prefer the use of edibles since people with lung cancer can not smoke, but they can still get high.

Management of chronic pain

Humans and dogs both have an endocannabinoid system in their bodies that help regulate various functions such as sleep, mood, and even immunosuppression. Two main compounds, that is, THC delta 8 and THC delta 9 have been studied in many types of research for their function in suppressing pain. These compounds have the ability to attach themselves to our endocannabinoid receptors and lower down chronic pain levels. A lot of patients also prefer vaping for pain management, since it is healthier than smoking. Most prefer bbtank vape that has THC distillate inside it. These are great for managing arthritis, and other issues related to pain.

Managing anxiety levels

Are you one of the people who has experienced a panic attack? More than 4% of the world’s population has experienced chronic anxiety in one form or another. It is extremely important to deal with this so that your daily life isn’t interrupted. Besides meditation and yoga, smoking weed is quite a well-known natural therapy for reducing levels of anxiety. Just remember to smoke some Indica in order to relax instead of smoking Sativa dominant strains. A lot of studies have proved the efficacy of cannabis in helping deal with stress and anxiety.


Marijuana has the ability to lower the amount of pressure built up in the eyes. A study published in the Journal of American Medical Association found that there was almost a 30$ decrease in the eye pressure of people who smoked a marijuana cigarette one hour before the test. This is considered quite a safe treatment.

There are tons of benefits of both CBD and THC. These are known to help with epilepsy, lack of appetite, chronic pain, and even insomnia.
