Modern Uses of Marijuana

Marijuana use has been a contentious topic, sparking a lot of debate and controversy worldwide. However, in recent years, many states in the U.S. have approved marijuana consumption for recreational purposes.

Medical marijuana has been utilized to address various medical conditions like pain, stress, and upset stomach issues, among many others. The issue is still under review, and more studies are needed to prove the effectiveness of marijuana in the medical field.

Recreational marijuana legalization allows people nationwide to access cannabis products from local dispensaries. In states where recreational use has been legalized, adults who are 21 years or older can purchase marijuana products from a dispensary without a prescription from a medical professional.

Cannabis Strains

Cannabis is available in various strains, each with unique purposes and benefits.

Indica Strains

Indica strains are more popular among medical MJ patients for a myriad of purposes, like pain and discomfort relief from symptoms caused by illness or disease. Indica cannabis strains are often consumed by people (recreational and medical) seeking deep relaxation and soothing sensations, and sometimes, sleep.

Sativa Strains

Sativa cannabis strains are known for their uplifting and energizing effects, making them a popular choice for daytime consumption. With a higher THC content, sativa strains are thought to stimulate creativity and boost focus, making them a great choice for activities that require mental clarity.

Hybrid Strains

Hybrid cannabis strains are a blend of sativa and indica, offering consumers the best of both worlds. With varying ratios of THC to CBD, hybrid strains can offer a wide range of effects, from energizing and uplifting to relaxing and calming. The balanced nature of hybrids makes them a great choice for any time of day.

What Are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are elements found in the cannabis plant. The most common cannabinoids are THC and CBD, although others have also been identified, including CBN and CBG. Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system to regulate how cells communicate. Cannabinoids stimulate the cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) and play a role in glucose metabolism.

Cannabis Terpenes

Terpenes naturally occurring elements that give the cannabis plant a special and unique aroma as well as individual results depending on what terpenes are in the strain and at what concentration. The most common terpenes include:

  • Beta-pinene
  • Limonene
  • Myrcene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Linalool
