One of the greatest benefits of marijuana is a stopping cancer cells from spreading.

It was found in the study, published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, that Cannabidiol has the ability to stop cancer by turning off a gene called Id-1. [1] In 2007, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, reported that CBD may prevent cancer from spreading. The researchers experimented on breast cancer cells in the lab that had high level of Id-1, and treated them with cannabidiol.

The outcome was rather positive, the cells had decreased Id-1 expression, and were less aggressive spreaders. In fact, the American Association for Cancer Research has found that marijuana actually works to slow down tumor growth in brain, breast, and lungs considerately.

 

The importance of focus and attention in sports is a no-brainer. Some sports stars take pre-workout supplements containing high amounts of caffeine to improve focus. CBD could also help to enhance focus by reducing stress and anxiety.

Anxiety causes difficulties for all those affected but is especially detrimental to athletes. Anxiety can have a negative impact on decision-making skills, attention, and self-confidence, all of which are important for optimal athletic performance.

Athletes could experience anxiety due to fear of performing poorly, the pressure to perform well, fear of injury, and career uncertainty, among other things. Fortunately, CBD is known for its anti-anxiety properties. We carry CBD infused products in all of our clinics. Call us today or simply stop by.

 

One of the biggest benefits that marijuana has is a Decrease the symptoms of Dravet’s Syndrome
Dravet Syndrome causes seizures and severe developmental delays. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, renowned chief medical correspondent for CNN, is treating a five years old girl, Charlotte Figi, who has Dravet’s Syndrome, with medical marijuana strain high in cannabidiol and low in THC.
During the research for his documentary “WEED”, Gupta interviewed the Figi family, and according to the film, the drug decreased her seizures from 300 a week to just one every seven days. Forty other children are using the same medication, and it has helped them too.
The doctors who are recommending this medication say that the cannabidiol in the plant interacts with the brain cells to quiet the excessive activities in the brain that causes the seizures.
