Cannabis has been having a bit of a “moment.” Every day, it seems we learn something new about its free radical-fighting properties, how it can help manage symptoms of chronic illness, or how another state or country has moved to legalize it. It’s becoming increasingly popular both for medical reasons and recreation, and the more prominent it becomes in the cultural conversation for its positive potential, the more its stigma decreases.
It’s still difficult in many places to get grants for new research on the cannabis plant, but the last few decades have generated a number of studies that reveal its promising therapeutic and medicinal effects. This is true regardless of how cannabis is ingested — smoked, eaten, or used as a topical — and what part of the plant is used, from medical marijuana to CBD. The more we learn about the plant and our own endocannabinoid system, the more possibility there seems to be.
At cannabisMD, it’s our mission to be a hub of the latest cannabis news and research related to the plant’s medical and lifestyle-enhancing properties. We aim to bring you expert opinion and personal stories about how cannabis can help relieve pain and nausea, decrease inflammation at the root of many disorders and diseases, improve the condition of your skin, and more, as well as any limitations or other factors you should consider as you make choices about your health and overall well-being.
