Recent studies are focusing on cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. This specific phytocannabinoid not only has significant pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effects, but is also a potent anti-oxidant and has been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of and eradicate many cancers. CBD recently made its way into the mainstream thanks to CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta. His first documentary profiles a high-CBD, low-THC medical variety of cannabis called “Charlotte’s Web” that has already been used to treat over 300 patients to date.
“The therapeutic benefits [of medical marijuana] have squarely moved out of the realm of the anecdotal into science — peer-reviewed science.” (Sanjay Gupta Says Medical Marijuana Should Be Legalized …)
The vast majority of consumers use cannabis as a wellness aid, to enhance the things that are most important in their lives– not as an intoxicant, to escape from life. These wellness uses certainly include the treatment of serious illnesses like cancer and epilepsy, and the chronic diseases of modern life like insomnia and anxiety and depression, and preventing Alzheimer’s and alleviating chronic pain. But this precious plant provides many other less obvious wellness benefits—like extending patience, promoting gentleness and forgiveness, inspiring creativity, improving the appetite and enjoyment of food, making jokes funnier and sex more satisfying, enhancing our sense of play and wonder, and countless other ways of making us both healthier and happier. These too are all legitimate wellness uses for cannabis.
