Myths and rumors about cannabis are many. Probably more than about any other flora. But today we would like to dwell not on unverified statements, but on confirmed facts. Namely on the benefits of cannabis. And in general, what exactly is it able to give a man?
The benefits of cannabis and its main properties
First of all, it should be said that the hemp fiber is unusually strong. It does not wear out even with prolonged and quite aggressive exposure to water. Technical hemp has long been used as the basic material in the production of fabrics. And today, in many countries, the textile industry suffers serious losses due to the fact that cannabis is an illegal plant. Just think about it: cannabis-based fabrics are ten times stronger than cotton fabrics! And the various ropes, ropes, bags and sacks made from hemp fabrics are the strongest;
Also note that from one hectare of hemp you can collect four times more raw material for paper than from trees in the same area. This is the only way to preserve forested areas, so hemp is also an opportunity to take care of the environment;
Cannabis seeds and stems can be actively used as the main raw material in the production of coal, gasoline, methane. During the combustion of such substances the environment will not suffer, there are no emissions that provoke acid rain and air pollution. Hemp charcoal can be used in the same way as wood charcoal. Hemp oil can also be used as fuel;
The benefits of cannabis to humans and even humanity can be very noticeable when grown on an industrial scale and purpose. To realize this opportunity is to obtain inexpensive fuel, clothing, paper, and a host of other products. It is only because businessmen in the United States of America did everything possible in 1961 to give a bad image of marijuana that it is not yet possible today in most of the developed world.
The health benefits of cannabis
It is surprising how much valuable information about the use of cannabis in the treatment of various diseases is contained in old medical books. Among the diseases even the most serious ones: cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma. Plus a large list of less serious illnesses: migraine, asthma, sleep disorders and poor appetite, depression, etc. This is by no means a complete list of illnesses that cannabis can cure. Or, at the very least, significantly lessen the symptoms. Cannabis is an unusually effective remedy, which has no analogues in the plant world.
Marijuana contains resins, vitamin K, choline, edestin, alkaloids, essential oil, carotene, cannabidiol acid and other components that have a relaxing, calming, pain-relieving effect on humans without consequences. The effect of cannabis is exactly the same as that of special medicines created for this purpose, but without the side effects that the latter have.
Separately I would like to draw the reader’s attention to hemp seeds. They are an unusually powerful source of fatty acids and protein. Cannabis seeds are perfectly digestible and well absorbed by the human body. The seeds also have strong moisturizing properties, which allows them to be used in cosmetology and in the production of various hemp oils. On their basis were already created high-quality skin care products, as well as shampoos. In addition, hemp oil is extremely useful. It can be used in cooking just like olive oil.
As for the use of cannabis, it is worth noting that it is a long tradition in Asian countries. And not surprisingly, alcohol is not as prevalent in them. The harm of alcoholic beverages has made them a real plague of the XXI century, but it is much more profitable for the consumer society and, above all, for the producers to produce as much alcohol as possible, because it is a huge profit. Of course, any benefit of alcohol is out of the question. And the fact that it causes addiction, from which the person himself and his relatives suffer, is an undeniable fact. And if you don’t focus your attention on the use of cannabis, it definitely has a great future ahead of it. At least at the moment when the Earth’s supply of oil runs out, cannabis will be remembered for sure. The area under cannabis cultivation has already grown considerably in Europe. And this is more than the right trend. New stores are opening that sell cannabis-based clothing and other products.
In many countries cannabis has been legalized as a medicine, and there are even specially bred medical ganja varieties. And many are inclined to believe that this is one of the signs of the modern civilized world. Of course, everyone can have their own opinion on the matter, but we would like everyone to look at the benefits of cannabis on a global scale. The number of problems it can help solve is enormous.
