THE PHYSICAL BENEFITS OF MARIJUANA

The magic of the marijuana plant is becoming more evident as time goes by as it have been found to aid a plethora of illnesses throughout Jamaica and the world at large. Medical research has been expanded and anecdotes are pouring in about the benefits as the plant was once thought of as nothing more than a weed off the side of a road.


Physical benefits of marijuana are far-reaching, widespread and long-term. Because of the way marijuana impacts the Autonomic Nervous System that expands the breath and relaxes the body, its potential for health and healing are enormous. The Entourage Effect, as it has become known, has now been proved to be a God send to many who had nowhere to turn from the danger of pharmaceutical outlets.


Marijuana, by its effect on the Autonomic Nervous System, enhances both sides of the brain. Through increased Sympathetic action, left brain perception is heightened, while, at the same time, right brain reception is enhanced. More blood, and cleaner blood, is sent to the brain, as in the “fight or flight” reaction. And because of Parasympathetic dilation of capillaries, which signifies relaxation, the blood supply to the entire brain is increased. More blood means more oxygen and consequently clearer and broader thinking. When we are mellow and relaxed, marijuana is energizing and affords alertness, determination, and even strength.


When the system is hyper-aroused, as in today’s lifestyle, marijuana calms. The significance of this fact cannot be ignored. It explains the increased creativity reported as a part of the marijuana experience when both sides of the brain processes are heightened. The term “expansion of consciousness” is explained physiologically as a “shifting of brain emphasis from one-sidedness to balance.” Marijuana ingestion has been shown to change the worried state by producing alpha waves, experienced as well-being.


The marijuana experience itself does not miraculously cure, but rather enables the body to cure itself. For a serious psychosomatic disease such as cancer, the benefits to be derived from marijuana cannot be overstated:


The breath can be restored to fullness, thereby eliminating the built-up toxicity and, at the same time, enjoining balance throughout the whole organism. A depressed system is a weakened system, and since it works holistically, marijuana gives strength where weakness exists, and expansion and relaxation where there is contraction and nervousness.


In a study carried out by the Scientific Research Council, it was found that chronic marijuana smokers who also smoked cigarettes were less likely to develop cancer than cigarette smokers who didn’t use marijuana. Since marijuana dilates the alveoli, toxins are more easily eliminated with cannabis use regardless of its method of application. Nicotine, on the other hand, constricts the alveoli, so it is likely that the use of cannabis neutralizes, or even overwhelms the constriction.


It can therefore be ascertained that the physical benefits of marijuana are now connected to the countless strains of the plant which is now gaining acceptance in the medical fraternity throughout the world, judging by the number of diseases and illnesses it has known to cure.
