Most people relate cannabis to recreational usage, hippies and getting high, yet this could not be further from the truth. This relation has caused a sense of terror around the use of cannabis - even though it is only a plant!
Because cannabis is associated with hippies, stoners, and recreational usage, there is a shortage of information about the plant, its therapeutic properties, and its use in conjunction with self-healing.
For years, we've been obliged to put our faith in pharmaceuticals. After all, we learned to view medicine that way through the generations.
Cannabis is only a plant - but it is a plant with therapeutic and medicinal potential! It is time for us to study nature's perspective and instil new perceptions about this excellent medicinal plant.
Our relationship with the plant
With the medical potential of the plant's existence resurfacing in the public mind, the statement takes on a new meaning in an era when curiosity is at an all-time high. When conditions and disease are on the rise, its expression is forced from fear to love, contributing to nature's reversal of suffering and health deterioration.
Many people are unaware of its therapeutic, medicinal, and holistic benefits. It could be due to its popularity for producing a high feeling, recreational abuse, and the method it is ingested. By the end of the day, it's simply a plant. It's time we looked at it from nature's perspective whilst delving into the plant's chemicals and their practical use. And why it has consciously come into being when health is about to take a turn for the worse.
The situations we all encounter that affects our state of being, mind, and spirit produce an illusion, disbelief, and separation regarding nature's perspective. We are all divine creatures with the healing abilities to reverse the conditions we face today.
Cannabis Plants healing properties and the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
Our ancestors were aware of the plant's healing properties through consciousness, leading to the discovery of our endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) can sense the cannabinoids found in cannabis. It can also balance our living systems, calming symptoms and reversing suffering, allowing us to shift our awareness to the root cause.
One of the world's oldest medicines is cannabis. Its medicinal usage dates back to 27000 BC in classical Chinese medicine. In the 19th century, cannabis was used in western medicine by British doctors as an appetite stimulant, muscle relaxant, anticonvulsant and analgesic. British doctors also used cannabis for hypnotic remedies. Unfortunately, due to its inconsistent potency of extracts and unreliable effects around oral ingestion, its medicinal use fell out of favour.
Another reason for its decline was the 1937 marijuana tax, which effectively prohibited its usage and sale. Surprisingly, a group opposed the bill because it imposed fees on doctors and pharmacists who prescribed the naturally occurring herb. This action protected profits associated with cannabis dispensing, meaning the drawback caused a collective surge in health conditions. It was then labelled as '"difficult-to-treat", "genetic" or "irreversible".
We are now aware that by using the plant and its therapeutic cures, we may reverse the issues we all face today. When science meets nature, new views about the plant emerge, causing our understanding of healing to transform.
Cannabis was made illegal due to the idea that it was a deadly narcotic. This statement was detrimental and erroneous because it failed to distinguish between cannabis extracts CBD and THC, for example.
60 out of 113 cannabinoids found in Cannabis have medicinal properties without the "high"
THC (the compound responsible for the "high" feeling), is only 1 of 113 cannabinoids found in cannabis. 60 out of the 113 cannabinoids found in cannabis have medicinal properties without the "high feeling". Implying that the cannabis plant is harmful ignores escalating research that cannabis is a safe and effective solution for many conditions that drugs fail to address.
The discovery of a previously unknown signalling mechanism, now known as our endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays an essential part in human health, began with studies on the cannabis plant. Researchers study the cannabis plant's signalling molecules and their genetic relationship to the ECS. They are trying to see how the cannabis plant can help treat various medical conditions. Cannabis is also considered the master healer by human body researchers. The innovative discovery, study, and now-known experience are poised to alter the landscape of natural and pharmaceutical medicine.
The usage of cannabis for therapeutic purposes is on the rise nowadays. The legal landscape is constantly adjusting to its widespread use. As consumer demand for medicinal cannabis grows, legislative bodies are moderating their previous anti-cannabis positions.
Cannabis extracts and tinctures containing less than 0.2 per cent THC have been removed from the legislation. They will no longer be scheduled under international drug control treaties if used medicinally. With the adoption of these new laws by the World Health Organization (WHO), it is apparent that the collective mind has misconstrued our thoughts and views about the plant and its medicinal benefits.
Cannabis has a place in the therapy of glaucoma, chronic pain, induced nausea, epilepsy, insomnia, fear, and illnesses related to autoimmune, brain and nervous system, digestive difficulties, and organ-associated disease, according to solid scientific data and human experience. Researchers continue to be intrigued by the genetic link between our ECS and the signalling molecules present in cannabis, the possibility of unlocking its therapeutic effects, and the capacity to regulate optimal biological functioning and numerous body process systems.
The Cannabis Plant uses in early human history
Cannabis plants are native to Central Asia and the Himalayan foothills. The plant had many uses, such as food, clothing, rope, medicinal, recreational, and spiritual purposes. Cannabis is a relatively new addition to western civilization, despite a long history of use in Asia. There was no trace of them in the western hemisphere until the sixteenth century.
Cannabis was cultivated in the early 1600s in Jamestown for fibre. It appeared in the 1850s to treat neuralgia, tetanus, typhus, cholera, rabies and excessive menstrual bleeding. In the 19th and 20th centuries, cannabis was used as a medicine. The use of cannabis as medical treatment was abolished by social reform and anti-plant propaganda efforts.
Our ancestors were aware of the medicinal, spiritual, and therapeutic benefits and the relationship between our biological system and the plant.
