Cannabis is one of the 50 fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine, and is prescribed to treat many diverse medical conditions.
Every part of the cannabis plant is used in medicine; the dried flowers, the achenia, the seeds, the oil, the leaves, the stalk, the root, and the juice.
Cannabis contains over 300 compounds at least 66 of which are cannabinoids. These cannabinoids serve as appetite stimulants, antiemetics, antispasmodics, and have some analgesic effects.
Five well understood and important cannabinoids found in cannabis are tetrahydrocannabinol, cannabidiol, cannabinol, β-caryophyllene, and cannabigerol.
Could it be the reason we feel such a euphoric effect when we first consume cannabis, is because we are highly deficient of it’s vital nutrients?
