(lifehack.org) Cannabis can be defined as a flowering plant’s genus, which contains three species, i.e. ruderalis, sativa and indica. It is also popularly known as Marijuana, Ganja and hemp among the youths. It is also categorized as a recreational drug and is banned in many nations.

8 health benefits of cannabis you must know

However, the recent studies have shown that it might have health benefits too. You should keep in mind that I am not talking about using marijuana as a recreational drug here.

8 Surprising Health Benefits of Cannabis
There was a study conducted on the topic of health benefits of cannabis and it showed that controlled use of cannabis has many health benefits. In this article, we will be looking at some of the health benefits of cannabis that you must know, and they are:


1. Reduce your weight
The first benefit of controlled use of cannabis, is that it helps in reducing your weight. The cannabis contains some properties which lead to controlling the insulin level in your body. Moreover, it also helps in managing calorie more efficiently, so it can help in the reduction of excessive weight.

2. Positive impact on your memory
You want to suggest cannabis to my question of, “How to improve memory?” And my answer is, “Yes.” Many studies have taken place on the topic, “How to improve memory?” The research suggests that cannabis can have a positive impact on your memory.

Yes, excessive and uncontrolled use of marijuana has an adverse impact on your health, but I am not talking about using marijuana to get high here. The study shows that the extremely low amount of THC, which is found in cannabis, could help in countering Alzheimer as well. Some elements found in cannabis could also help in the formation of new brain cells and reduce inflammation, which will lead to improving your memory.

3. Cancer Treatment
The element found in cannabis is also used in the treatment of cancer. Cannabidiol found in cannabis can stop cancer, as it turns off a gene known as Id-1. When this gene is blocked, it eventually stops the cancer cells from spreading. Cannabis has also been effective in treating breast cancer. Controlled use of cannabis as a medicine may even kill the cancer cells according to some experts.

4. Glaucoma Treatment
The fourth benefit of cannabis is that it can be used in the treatment of Glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye disease, which leads to increased pressure in your eyeballs. It will eventually destroy your optic nerve and will result in loss of vision. The controlled use of cannabis can decrease intraocular pressure, and it slows down the progression of Glaucoma, which may prevent blindness.

5. It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Cannabis can also be used as an anti-aging formula to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Cannabis produces oil, which is very effective in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Hemp oil and THC in a very less proportion help to hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation.

Dr. Ariel Ostad and Dr. Bobby Buka explain cannabinoids found in marijuana have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidants properties to help in reducing the effect of aging. However, using marijuana as recreational drugs can badly hamper your skin.

6. Reduction in anxiety
Marijuana can increase your anxiety and it will eventually make you paranoid if you use it as drugs to get high. However, a controlled use of cannabis can help in reduction of anxiety among the patients. The elements found in cannabis help in reducing nausea and relieving the pain, which will eventually reduce the anxiety if it is used properly.

7. Arthritis Treatment
Another health benefit of cannabis is that it can play an important role in the treatment of arthritis. The elements found in marijuana decreases the pain, increases sleepiness and reduces inflammation, which will help the arthritis patients. The research showed that the medicine developed with the use of cannabinoid improved the sleep quantity among the patients.

8. Improvement in the signs of Lupus
The final benefit listed here is about the cannabis impact on the symptoms of Lupus. Lupus can be defined as a serious inflammatory disease, in which your organs and body tissues are attacked by your immune system. Some chemicals found in cannabis will help in calming down the immune system, helping in improving the symptoms of Lupus.

Conclusion
Cannabis has many health benefits as you can see in this list. It is effective when you know how to use the chemicals found in the cannabis in an appropriate way and quantity. For an instance, THC in extremely low proportion is beneficial, but if the THC proportion is higher, then it can have an adverse impact on your health.

So, you should be careful while using cannabis. It is only recommended if you use it for medical purpose; it is better to stay away from using marijuana as a drug to get high.
