A brief introduction on the cannabis plant
Cannabis plant been used for thousands of years for therapeutic purposes, a part of its recreational purposes. Thanks to the scientists progress throughout the years to the present, it was found that the fat obtained from the seeds of the plant contains many healthy components, including fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, two biomolecules that properly combined are more beneficial than the exclusive supply of omega 3 through the bluefish. Considering the medical literature, in 2014 research group Medicinal Plants of the University of Seville published a scientific article in which the components of the oil from hemp seed as potentially beneficial to the body were described.
Medical marijuana has been a new boom in recent years. Although its therapeutic effects have been used for generations, the truth is that, in some way, its consumption has been banned since 1937 in the US “Marijuana Tax” and socially rejected till now. However, and fortunately for all those who use it to improve the situation of their health, there are more and more studies that support the benefits of this plant. And, as a consequence, the number of people who test it is increasing and also the number of countries that, somehow, “approve” their consumption for such purposes.
The most common way to consume marijuana has always been in a smoked way. The people who like to smoke, find pleasure in this act. However, for those who usually do not smoke, this fact is not so pleasant. This is why companies have been developed different ways to consume marijuana as other intake forms, either by introducing it into the diet or by consuming CBD oil providing from the plant.
