Research has shown that cannabis can be helpful in treating a variety of conditions, from pain to epilepsy to opioid addiction according to various sources. It has also been noted the plant can be great for improving your lifestyle.


Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the primary active substance in cannabis that gives users the psychoactive effects they love. The chemical affects your consciousness, and it helps to create the head feeling that has become so associated with marijuana over the years. Some of the other positive effects caused by THC include:

  • Preventing nausea
  • Easing muscle spasms
  • Relieving pain
  • Stimulating appetite


Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the substance within the cannabis plant that provides users with the most medical benefits without them getting high. CBD is non-psychotropic, and so it will never make someone feel stoned or hazy. Indeed, that is why CBD products are often legal, even in countries where the rest of the marijuana plant is not. Some of the medical issues CBD can help include:

  • Anxiety
  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Mental health problems
  • Nausea
  • And much more


Terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity. They’re what give unique aromas such as berry, funky fuel, sweet floral and more. These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands, the same ones that produce THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Terpenes are by no means unique to cannabis; they can be found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants as well.


Cannabinol, or CBN, offers a unique profile of effects and benefits that have researchers clamoring for more scientific investigation. CBN’s studied benefits include: Pain relief, Anti-insomnia, and more!
