I am sure most of you have heard the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. But have you heard, “Getting high every day keeps the doctor away”.
Maybe you don’t need a reason to blaze every day, but if you do, we’ve got a bunch!
1. The chemical compounds inherent in cannabis, THC and CBD, help protect brains, especially ones that have experienced a brain injury
The Salk Institute, among other research institutes, has found that that low doses of THC reduce the plaque-forming proteins associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. And then CBD effectively reduces inflammation and helps prevent neural cell death, preserving brain plasticity. This function of cannabis is also of great interest to people with post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD because neuroplasticity helps their brain to ‘forget’ the trauma more than before and allows the brain to rewire connections of learned fear, reducing hypervigilance, nightmares and night terrors.
2. It can help you say buh-bye to migraines
A study from the University of Colorado shows that the frequency of migraines in patients who used cannabis dropped from 10.4 per month to 4.6—that’s huge. Smoked marijuana, which hits the bloodstream almost instantly, was best for treating acute migraines. On the other hand, edibles, which take much longer to metabolize, helped prevent headaches.
People credit smoking weed with getting their creative juices flowing, and it’s true. It leads to hyper-priming. That’s what happens when your brain makes a connection between two items that are seemingly unrelated; considered primary to creative thinking.
