We’ve already given you ten great reasons to smoke more cannabis, but we’re not done yet. There are endless reasons why someone should indulge in cannabis, and enthusiasts certainly don’t need any extra excuses to persuade them, but with new information coming out every day it’s important to stay up-to-date. In an effort to keep all cannabis connoisseurs informed, here are ten more reasons to love weed.
Cannabis has been known to help relieve the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, providing some comfort to those who suffer from this terrible illness. New research shows, when stimulated with cannabis, the endocannabinoid system can have a direct influence on the part of the brain affected by PTSD, even completely eliminating symptoms in some patients.
2. Brain repair
After a concussion or other injury to the brain, cannabis has shown to not only repair the brain, but it could even help to regrow stem cells, according to a recent study – a far different belief than those of 20 years ago, when it was commonly believed cannabis kills brain cells.
3. Organ acceptance
During an organ transplant surgery, one of the biggest concerns is the recipient’s body rejecting the new organ. Fortunately, a new study found THC can actually prevent a body from rejecting a newly introduced organ. The more THC in a patient’s body, the less likely the organ will have issues, so smoke up!
4. Don’t test this one
We all know driving drunk is just about the stupidest thing a person can do. While it has been commonly thought that cannabis induces the same type of risks while operating a motor vehicle, it is just simply not true.
Researchers from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed high users are much less likely to be in an accident than drunk drivers, and actually use more caution than some sober drivers. Let me be clear – driving drunk or high is not recommended.
5. Treatment for another cancer
Researchers from Sweden recently revealed their discovery of cannabis as a treatment for blood cancer. The results showed that cannabinoids induce growth inhibition and prevent new cells from being affected.
6. No brainer
The government thinks by criminalizing cannabis it will somehow stop or slow its’ usage. The truth is, it has the opposite effect. A study found “no evidence” to support the claim that decriminalization increases use or that criminalizing hinders use.
7. Another one
Cannabis is a cancer patient’s best friend. As the list of cancers being treated with cannabis continues to grow, more and more research is being done to study all treatable cancers.
Recently, scientists discovered cannabis is a great course of action for liver cancer, the third highest cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide, as it hinders the viability of the human cell line where liver cells can become infected.
8. Socially excluded
While it is easy to understand how cannabis improves physical pain, it might take a little deeper thinking to see how it heals emotional pain, too. Social exclusion is the act of being rejected from a group or social gathering.
Those rejected are left with feelings of loneliness and depression, as well as physical discomfort, like the tightness in your chest or the butterflies in your stomach after seeing friends out who didn’t invite you. A new study says don’t worry about being excluded, spark a joint instead.
9. Growth inhibitor
Cannabis has been proven to cut lung cancer tumor growth by as much as 50%. No other form of treatment has anywhere the near the same results. Cannabis will literally save more lives than pharmaceutical drugs.
10. Good all the way around
Throat cancer can also be added to the list of cannabis-treatable conditions. A study discovered that primary cannabinoids, like THC, have antitumor properties and aid in the regression of existing tumors. Cannabis is truly proving itself to be the miracle medicine we’ve always known it to be.
