Learning about cannabis

When I considered applying for my medical marijuana card, I started researching the potential benefits of cannabis.

I wanted to be sure I made the most of the opportunity.

It was important to me that I understood the products plus chose wisely. In the beginning, I felt completely overwhelmed. I had never heard of most of the terminology plus had no clue how cannabis worked within the body. I learned that the human body is made up of an intricate network of receptors, enzymes plus endocannabinoids called the Endocannabinoid System or ECS. This system was only discovered a few years ago. Its purpose is to maintain homeostasis. The cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, such as THC plus CBD, are legitimately similar to those produced by the body. They are able to interact with CB1 plus CB2 receptors found in the brain, immune cells, organs, glands plus tissues. The responses of these receptors influence a variety of functions, including reproductivity, mood, learning, sleep plus pain. The diversity of cannabis products available at the dispensary offer an incredible option for customized treatment. It has taken me a while to sample the unusual consumption methods plus determine what works best for my needs plus preferences. I have had wonderful fortune with tinctures. They are one of the most discreet plus convenient possibilities plus deliver rapid onset of effects, precise dosing plus an especially long shelf-life. They are seriously straight-forward to apply. I simply site a few drops under the tongue. I can also add them to foods or beverages plus consume them like an edible for delayed effects. I like that tinctures have less calories than edibles plus deliver greater versatility.
