50 Unexpected Benefits of Cannabis (you might not know)
By Chip Whitley
on February 1, 2018
The Health Benefits of Cannabis
1. It Can Help You Lose Weight
If you’re an avid Green Flower reader, then you’re already aware that cannabis users have been shown to be slimmer, on average, than non-users. That’s because cannabis helps the body regulate insulin production, and manage caloric intake more efficiently.
2. It Can Regulate and Prevent Diabetes
Because cannabis helps regulate body weight, it only makes sense that it would help prevent and regulate Diabetes. Again, you can thank the herb’s ability to regulate insulin production for this medical breakthrough.
3. It Fights Cancer
This is the big one that everybody’s been talking about. Both scientists and the federal government have released a good amount of evidence showing that cannabinoids fight certain types of cancer. It doesn’t get much more substantial than that.
4. It Can Help Depression
Depression is one of the more widespread, yet least talked about medical conditions in America. And research is showing that cannabis can help treat it.
“Using compounds derived from cannabis — marijuana — to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression,” said Samir Haj-Dahmane, who is spearheading the research at Buffalo University – research that is only just now beginning to ramp up.
5. It’s Showing Promise in Treating Autism
Like many other high-profile disorders, autism may be a prime target for cannabis-based treatments. Science is digging into it, but in the meantime, some parents are using it to help manage violent mood swings in autistic children.
6. It Provides a Safer Alternative to Drugs and Alcohol
Cannabis can be harmful if you use it irresponsibly, but it’s nowhere near as destructive as alcohol for example. With wider availability, cannabis can and will become a substance of choice – and likely save a lot of lives (and livers) in the process.
7. It Helps Regulate Seizures
Using medical cannabis to regulate seizures is another one of the more high-profile findings coming out of medical science. For folks with disorders like Epilepsy, cannabis is showing immense promise.
8. It Can Help Broken Bones Heal Faster
Can you believe that cannabis can actually mend broken bones? It’s true, as CBD evidently reacts chemically with collagen, spurring along the healing process. Another very exciting find.
9. It’s a Treatment for ADHD
For those with serious trouble concentrating, or who have children suffering from ADD or ADHD, cannabis might be the treatment you’ve been waiting for. It’s safer and more effective than medications like Ritalin or Adderall.
10. It Can Help Treat Serious Addictions
We already mentioned that cannabis can be a viable, safer alternative to substances like alcohol and tobacco, but did you know that it can also be used as a treatment for addictions to these substances, and more? Individuals addicted to serious drugs like heroin, opiates, and cocaine, are showing promise in ridding themselves of their addictions through cannabis therapy.
Of course, it’s entirely possible to develop a dependency to marijuana, also – so responsible and mindful use is key.
11. It Treats Glaucoma
One of the first big medical issue that cannabis was shown to effectively treat is Glaucoma. Ingesting cannabis helps lower the pressure in the eyeball, giving patients at least temporary relief.
12. It Can Improve Lung Health
You probably never saw this one coming – especially since pot is commonly associated with smoking, and smoking with chronic lung problems. But some conditions, including lung cancer and Emphysema, have been shown to regress when cannabis is thrown into the mix.
13. It Helps Anxiety
Fact: cannabis can actually cause anxiety but there are ways to potentially avoid that. And it’s also true that for many people, cannabis can help alleviate anxiety disorders.
14. It Can Slow the Development of Alzheimer’s Disease
Cognitive degeneration is pretty much unavoidable as we age, and Alzheimer’s disease falls under that umbrella. The good news is that studies are showing cannabis can stop the progression of Alzheimer’s, which may lead to longer, richer lives for millions.
15. It Helps M.S. Patients
Cannabis helps alleviate many of the symptoms associated with Multiple Sclerosis, most notably the tremors, spasms, and pain.
16. It Can Control Muscle Spasms
We’ve mentioned M.S. and seizures, but general muscle spasms are an ailment that affect millions. Cannabis can help calm those muscles, stop them from twitching, and deal with the pain associated with spasms.
17. It Helps Individuals with Eating Disorders
A common use for medical cannabis is to help regulate eating patterns. Whether you eat too much, or too little, cannabis can help. This is especially helpful for people suffering from disorders like Bulimia and Anorexia.
18. It Treats Arthritis
Another common ailment that cannabis is used to treat is arthritis. The THC and CBD – as well as other cannabinoids – help sufferers deal with the pain, especially when using quality cannabis creams and balms.
19. It’s Helpful for Those with PTSD
With so many veterans in need of effective treatments for PTSD after the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the discovery that cannabis is a viable option is fantastic news. Now, the trick is to get the VA and doctors to actually prescribe it.
And of course not all PTSD is combat-related. All sorts of traumatic experiences can put that fight-or-flight response into overdrive, and cannabis is the only medication to address that.
20. It Can Help Regulate Your Metabolism
We touched on how cannabis helps your body process and deal with food, and obesity. This plays into how it also helps maintain and regulate your metabolism. That not only means sticking to an ideal weight level but generally being healthier and happier!
RECOMMENDED FOR CHRONIC PAIN:
Cannabis For Back Pain, Chronic Pain, & Nerve Damage
21. It Can Help People with AIDS/HIV
Cannabis can’t directly cure the AIDS virus, but it can and does help those living with it cope. Specifically, cannabis helps those living with AIDS/HIV maintain their diets and handle associated pains and aches.
22. It’s Effective for Treating Nausea
Next up on our list of marijuana facts: nausea. This is a relatively common feeling, and one that is brought on by any number of things. Some people live with constant bouts on a daily basis, and as you can imagine, it can be debilitating. How does cannabis come into the picture? Chemical compounds in cannabis react with brain receptors to regulate feelings of nausea. This is a particular boon for chemotherapy patients (see #27).
23. It’s an Alternative Treatment for Headaches
Lots of people experience headaches every day, and taking the typical medicines – be it acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil) – can take its toll on your body, leading to ulcers, liver damage, and other complications. Cannabis offers a natural alternative, and one that won’t chew threw your stomach lining.
24. It Can Treat Certain STDs
It’s true – cannabis has been found to be at least somewhat effective in the treatment of a handful of sexually transmitted diseases, including herpes and chlamydia.
25. It Will Help with Speech Problems
If you, or someone you know, has an issue with stuttering, cannabis can help. Research is by and large still lacking, but in the same way that cannabis helps calm spasms and twitches, those with speech problems can potentially benefit from its effects.
26. It Can Improve Skin Conditions
Who would’ve thought that cannabis could be a viable treatment option for skin conditions like eczema? The only issue? Smoking won’t do much good, as smoking actually harms your skin. A quality cannabis topical, on the other hand, can do wonders.
27. It Can Help You Get Through Chemotherapy
This is another extremely popular use for medical cannabis. Those suffering from cancers and its treatments – like chemotherapy – have found comfort in cannabis’s soothing effects.
28. It Regulates Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Those living with OCD can also use cannabis as a treatment option. CBD, which effectively regulates anxiety to some extent, is the main active ingredient which helps those with OCD get a handle on the disorder – and live more functional lives.
29. It Will Calm Asthma Attacks
You probably never saw this one coming. Cannabis and asthma? They’re apparently compatible, or so says science. Again, it has to do with cannabinoid receptors which help control coughing fits as well as the herb’s ability to act as a bronchodilator. Smoking is obviously not the best method of delivery here, as that will likely only make things worse.
30. It Can Replace Viagra for Some Men
How about a natural cure for erectile dysfunction? This is another one of the many benefits of marijuana. No more hiding that Viagra in the back of the medicine cabinet, merely stick to cannabis. The research is ongoing, but there is evidence that cannabis can help men overcome this frustrating issue.
31. It Can Lower Your Blood Pressure
Smoking and low blood pressure are rarely synonymous. Thankfully there are several other ways to ingest cannabis, which can help with hypertension and other blood pressure issues. Although if you have serious heart issues, caution is advised because we still have a lot to learn about cannabis and the heart.
32. It’ll Calm Your Panic Attacks
As mentioned, calming anxiety is one of cannabis’s more sought-after effects. As a result, it can help people control panic attacks. Of course, it’ll depend on several physical factors, and what specific strains you use.
The Economic Benefits of Cannabis
33. It Can Be Used as a Food Source
Despite the fact that cannabis is hard to find at your local grocery store, throughout history, it’s been a dietary staple for many civilizations. Hemp has often been cultivated as a source of protein, and even today is used to create protein powders, or seeds can be purchased for consumption. On a large production scale, hemp can feed a lot of hungry people if prohibitive laws are overturned.
34. It Makes for an Attractive Investment
Want to make green, from green? Lots of venture capitalists are starting to see the explosive potential in the cannabis industry, and as a result, are dumping money into cannabis-based startups and businesses. Cannabis capital summits are even popping up, attracting investors and entrepreneurs.
35. It Can Help Fight Climate Change
If we are able to get large-scale cannabis farms into production, it could help curb emissions, and fight climate change. This would happen through a number of ways, from providing more carbon-absorbing plants across vast farmlands, to trading off emission-producing animal farms for greener, cleaner cannabis grows.
36. It Creates Jobs
The creation of literally tens of thousands of jobs in the wake of legalization in places like Colorado and Washington is hard to ignore. And in an economy that has been in slow-recovery mode since 2009, looking at any opportunity to add more jobs can’t be overlooked.
37. It Generates Revenue for Schools and Public Health Programs
Instead of having money funnel into the hands of low-level street dealers, or even cartels on the other side of the border, legal marijuana markets are putting money to work in local communities through tax revenue. Marijuana is now supplying millions to schools and public health programs, among other things.
38. Legalizing Cannabis is Getting People Out of Jail
A big point of contention in the U.S. recently has been the large rate of incarceration, and the amount of money flowing to the prison industrial complex. Legalization is clearing out prisons, and freeing up time and resources for law enforcement.
39. It’s Creating New Industries
We mentioned that cannabis is creating a lot of jobs, and that’s because it’s creating new industries which house them. Cultivation, processing, sales outlets – there are numerous facets to the cannabis industry, and as legalization spreads, it’ll continue to grow.
40. It Lowers Crime Rates
Yes, making a previously illegal product legal lowers the crime rate – but it goes deeper than that. Numbers show that states in post-legalization status are seeing drops in crime, and perhaps most importantly, violent crime.
In places where cannabis is now legal, we’re seeing a lot less of this.
41. It Leads to Safer Roads
Traffic deaths have gone down in Colorado after legalization, which is fantastic news. This could be due to the substitution effect, people choosing pot over alcohol.
42. It Makes Law Enforcement Cheaper and Easier
In legalized states, police no longer need to spend time chasing marijuana offenders, which also clears up the courtrooms for more serious cases. This makes things easier for everybody, and cheaper for the tax payers.
How Cannabis Can Improve Your Daily Life
43. It Can Keep Your Pets Healthy
Cannabis, in some forms, can make for a healthy supplement for your pets. And for animals that are sick, or living with chronic pain, cannabis-based treats can offer some relief.
44. It Can Help You Have More Pleasant Dreams
Plagued by bad dreams? Try cannabis before you hit the sack, and see if it makes a difference. For some people, it’s doing the trick. For others, particularly those with PTSD, it can also eliminate dreams completely. The reason, it turns out, is that cannabis impacts REM sleep – the part of the cycle during which you dream.
45. It Can Bring Your Energy Levels up
A lot of people are tired. But a small subset of individuals suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – a disorder that is effectively treated with certain cannabis compounds and strains. Just make sure you’re picking the right ones if you want to avoid fatigue.
46. It’ll Help You Sleep
On the flip side, you can use cannabis to help you get to sleep. Again, though, it’ll depend on what specific strains you’re using, and your physical and psychological makeup. You may have to experiment a bit to get the desired effect.
47. It Can Help You Get Through the Work Day
No matter what kind of job you have, cannabis can probably give you a boost in some way – be it mentally or physically. If you do decide to experiment with cannabis at work, be careful not to let things get out of hand. Be mindful of what works and what doesn’t.
And if you’re operating machinery, or driving? Abstain. Better to get high AFTER work.
48. It Can Make You More Productive
If you can get your cannabis regimen just right, productivity could increase significantly. For a lot of people that may be due to the medical benefits gained from cannabis, or the inspiration, or simply because they’re happier. On the other hand, productivity can also take a complete nosedive if you’re not careful.
49. It Could Make You More Creative
Surprise, surprise – cannabis can help you be more creative. There’s still some debate as to how or why this happens, but cannabis does inspire lateral and divergent thinking, an important mindset for innovation and progress.
50. It Can Protect Your Brain
Cannabis as a brain protector? It’s true. Scientists are finding that chemical compounds found in cannabis actually help protect our brains.
Let’s spread the word!
Wow, that’s a lot of benefits! If this list hasn’t provided you with enough marijuana facts to convert even the most strident prohibitionist, what will?
And of course we have to be realistic. Marijuana does have its own advantages AND disadvantages. Just like anything else it can be abused or misused. But if we’re going to educate, we’ve got to de-stigmatize and spark more conversations. The truth is that everybody, everywhere deserves access to all the benefits of marijuana.
Cannabis education is critical.
If it doesn't Shatter, it doesn't matter. #710 ^_-
Dayum! No Wake & Bake this morning. I have to drive Bandit to his Annual Medical Appointment. I have to leave him there. Then return home to wait hours before they call me to pick him up.
That means hours of back pain and negative thoughts I'll have to endure without meds.
Have you ever been layed up in a hospital after surgery and all the pain rush back into reality for you and you ask for pain relief medicine and they tell you that they've already given you the max and that you have to wait and suffer through it until the next scheduled time to administer more, but they give you an over-the-counter drug that does little to give you relief from the pain?
Yup, it's like that.
Standing up having to lean back to find a little relief from arthritis in my lower spine due to years of load-bearing punishment from having to carry combat gear while on active duty for years. I wasn't even in Infantry, but due to my career path, I had to train as one on more than a few occasions. A 2007 study found Marines typically carry 97 to 135 pounds of gear, leading to increasing injuries. Military studies acknowledge that combat soldiers are carrying too much weight — often more than 100 pounds.
So that in addition to Lung injury lead to other health issues such as Weight Gain, High Blood Pressure, Chronic Increased Heart Rate, Minor Depression, etc, etc.......So Cannabis.....Yeah, it helps me to "manage".
Some people say, "Oh, it's just a crutch". Well, fuck, break your leg and see how beneficial a crutch becomes to your life until it heals.
Well, my medical issues are the type that will never heal. I have to live with them until I am among the living no more.
Pain pills might work on the pain, but its chemical poison does damage to other areas of the body and may even cause Death if one takes too much in search of pain relief as your body may build some sort of weird immunity to them.
No one has ever died from taking too much Cannabis....
You are so asking for pain
Yeah, she hasn't logged in yet either.....Wait, are you both outside playing with your own shadows? Well that's a Goddamn Special Play Date there....Fuck! LMAO!
I'll never tell!!!

No LZAPERVERT...I'm not ordering you jewelry. I'm not that High...lol luckybox.com my ass! hahaha
Sorry forgot the club part. luckyboxclub.com That is the right website.
Dear VR, FBI, whomever, I'm not endorsing cannabis products. I posted nothing about a "club". I consume it legally, I don't endorse, sell, grow or advertise it for profit. Thank you. Hahaha!
When you've paid all your bills at the beginning of the month and then gotta stay high every day for the rest of the month because your ass broke and can't go anywhere to do anything until next month when you get paid again....LOL!
By the middle of the month you've been so High for so long that you've forgotten what fucking year it is....let alone how close you are to the next month. You're like, 'Fuck that shit. Cough, Cough...If I die...I die.'....But you don't die. You're just eating whatever you can invent in the kitchen because you're running out of food. Frying sardines talking about it's a mini-fish fry...Get the fuck out of here.
The struggle be real. You're turning your bongs upside down and torching dry wax trying to get some reclaim because you're running out of meds. Then you start looking at the Oregano pretty hard. Side-Eying the Syrup wondering if you can Dab it. SMH....WTF?!
Need me to send you a blue apron box lol.
A Blue Apron box? What do I suppose to do with that? Store my stems to smoke when things get really bad? lol
Bluapron.com, they do food you weirdo. If you want weed then try luckybox.com
luckybox.com? They sell Jewelry fool....lol
My lower back is on fire....Time to medicate and rise above the pain. ^_^
It's been hours since I've medicated. Still have to pick up Bandit from the Groomers so I can't. Not trying to get a DUI. They've had him for 3 hours now. Ugghhh!
Are you high?
Noooo...Why what have you heard or seen?
What do you mean what am I doing
I'm on the IG liking chicks' pictures
Making them feel good about themselves
Chicks love when you like their pictures
I hope they know that just because I like their pictures
Doesn't mean I want to creampie them
While they are bent in some odd position
Covered with massage oil
While I'm eating a sandwich
I mean, take the lick and keep it moving
I'm saving myself for SexDoll3000
Oh and Pornhub
Wow! Yup, I think I'm still High....Who wakes-up High? LMAO!
I am usually a 6 all day but at night, I ramp it up to 8. When I hang out with my friend Rev. Dave I acheive level 13.
Dayum Lady! Hard Core! LOL! Maybe that's why you feel you know me from the past and that we use to talk about cannabis. You were fucking Hullucinating! LMAO!
A Cannahead's Logic...
Meds are expensive and you're left with deciding between food & cannabis.... smh!
Fuck, I need to lose some weight anyways...Cannabis it is. LOL!
Oh, i know the struggle. lol
Yeah, the struggle is REAL! LOL!
Taco Bell is cheap. Clean your car and scrounge for change in the cushions.
Yo quero Taco Bell ;)
@ LZAPERVERT, do you remember Taco Viva? "When You Say Taco...Say Viva"
Taco Viva died . Long Live Taco Bell. I was born in 78. Taco Bell was everywhere when I was a kid.
Ok, time for food and a movie...But first, let's hit this Bong! ^_^
You ever catch yourself staring into space and when you come back to reality, you wonder how long had you been in pause mode like that? What year is it? Then you look at the time/date display and realize you're fucking High As Shit! It's the same year, but you don't remember how long it has been since you medicated. Two reasons. (1) You're High AF and (2) You're Retired and Time Doesn't Matter. ^_^
All I know is when I started medicating, I was sitting upright in bed. Now I'm lying on my back and my head is at an odd angle.
I love your posts!!
LMAO. And people say I have issues lol.
So this is where the stoners hang out. I'm an occasional toker and favor blue cookies.
Welcome! (Passes Bong) ^_^
The weather is overcast today....Awesome!
Let Bandit out to answer the call of Nature and then gave him a Bath. I usually bathe him on Fridays, but was too High to deal with all that...LOL!
Now time to sit back and be Entertained....#RetirementLifestyle.
