Top 7 Cannabis Strains-Natural Depression Remedy

The benefits of using marijuana to relieve depression have been clear. It can negate the need for harmful prescription chemicals and, if you are growing cannabis yourself, then you will know the exact origins of your medication and can even grow your weed organically to ensure your medication is truly natural. How Cannabis Treats Depression: Though THC levels do vary amongst cannabis seeds, even plants with a very low dosage can still provide relief against depression in two ways: First, the THC can stimulate a substance in the brain known as Anandamide which controls the feeling of well being in a person experiences. Stimulating this compound enables a cannabis user to reduce their levels of depression and in some cases, get rid of it all together. Second, marijuana users will find that THC can also stimulate the neurogenesis section of the hippocampus which can actually create new neurons in this part of the brain which can actually work to reduce depression and its effects in the long term. Cannabis can also work to combat some of the key side effects of depression. It can work to reduce high blood pressure, stop those who comfort eat from wanting to seek solace in food and it can help those with insomnia get more sleep. #1-AK-47       Medicinal use People suffering from migraines or anxiety will find tranquility when medicating themselves using AK-47.

Can Marijuana Protect You From Ebola?

Can Marijuana Protect You From Ebola?

The deadly Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa has hit “unprecedented” proportions, according to relief workers on the ground. “The epidemic is out of control,” Dr. Bart Janssens, director of operations for Doctors Without Borders, said in a statement. There have been 567 cases and 350 deaths since the epidemic began in March, according to the latest World Health Organization figures. Not a day has gone by in the last few weeks without a mention of Ebola. Having made its way into North America, Ebola has become reached the top of the “to fear” list, making many worry that it will only be a matter of time before the disease dominates the continent. Effective vaccines and treatments for Ebola have yet to be discovered, though one may be hiding in plain sight: cannabis. Cannabinoids in marijuana have gained more and more of a reputation as a way to control and aid one’s immune systems, specifically with diseases that target a body’s natural defense measures against viruses, like HIV. Dr. David B. Allen, medical director of Cannabis Sativa, Inc, and Brad Morehouse, founder of NewCure.org, both believe cannabis can combat Ebola in the same way. First, a rundown on what Ebola is and does, so everyone understands the argument. Ebola is a virus that targets the RNA (which creates proteins) in cells, takes over, then begins to replicate itself. The virus is able to hide itself from virus killing cells by creating indivisibility cloak-like surface proteins, which makes fighting Ebola especially difficult for the body. Another consequence of Ebola being an RNA virus is that it makes each strain unique to the individual infected, thus making the creation of a widely applicable vaccine incredibly difficult. What makes Ebola deadly is the way in which one’s immune system reacts as time goes on. Aside from creating hemorrhaging and leaking between cells, Ebola primarily kills when a person’s body releases a massive amount of enzymes (a cytokine storm) and an overabundant, and fatal amount, of immune cells being activated. That’s where marijuana comes in as a potential saving grace to those afflicted with Ebola. As Joe Martin points out, cannabis is contains natural antiretrovirals and is also an anti-inflammatory able to reduce the harm to the body caused by a cytokine storm. Cannabichromene (CBC) is one of four major cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa L. and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in the cannabis you most likely smoke, vape, or eat. CBD was evaluated for it’s antiinflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal activity. In 2 tests CBC was superior to phenylbutazone, anonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for the short-term treatment of pain and fever in animals. The antibacterial activity of...
