While most people focus on the health benefits of CBD, and there are a lot of them, they throw away THC, as a useless chemical that only makes you high. Well, this could not be farther from the truth! THC, in fact, has health benefits of its own, and that today is what we are going over.
Why Is THC Beneficial?
THC is responsible for things from protecting the brain to pain relief. There are truly many reasons that THC is beneficial. Again the important thing to remember is that while THC is the part of the cannabis plant that makes you high, and has such a bad stigma, there are many health benefits that THC provides aside from its connection to CBD. Take for example one of the greatest potentials of THC, tumor destroying and cancer-fighting. Due to various studies, it seems that THC introduces to a being with cancer, not only helped nausea but actually fought the tumors and cancer, unlike any drug we have seen on the market. THC is also an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and even an anticonvulsant. It is a muscle relaxer and a whole host of other benefits. THC is quite mislabelled as something bad, or only something that gets you high, but how wrong they are. Let’s take, for example, its anti-inflammatory capabilities, this goes down as uncared for and unmarked. But do you know what inflammation can do to the body? A great deal of harm, pain, dangerous life-threatening situations. Inflammation is no joke, and being able to control it and minimize it is a great feat. Going back to cancer, if we think about what a cure for cancer could look like, it’s insurmountable. Imagine just a simple plant is found to be the cure to cancer! There is so much potential with THC but it gets ignored when it comes to the health benefits of its cousin CBD. Another cancer, or eating disorder related bonus with THC, is that it increases appetite, so those who are so sick they cannot eat, can now find peace and solace concerning their meals. Those who have eating disorders where it’s hard for them to force that bight down will find it easier with the aid of THC.
There’s SO Much More…!
In the end, it is going to come down to your needs and your uses for THC. There are so many conditions out there that can benefit from THC that I don’t even know where to start! This article is but a short introduction to the world of THC. Its unfortunate however that THC is not available to patients who need it in most of the United States. While WHO (World Health Organization) just said cannabis should be downgraded, it is still illegal in most states, making this medicine hard for people to come by, at least legally. Whatever the future holds for THC, we know its medical value and what it can do for so many people who could benefit from it. THC has so many medical applications that it is insane to not be recognized as the great miracle of a chemical that it is. THC is natural in the world around us, it exists in all living beings in the endocannabinoid system, other plants carry it as well, it’s just not as present as it is the in the cannabis plant. Long story short, THC can be great for you, but you should check with your doctor before starting or stopping regular prescription medications to treatments.
