Cannabis, also known as marijuana, is widely known to have a range of medical benefits and has been used for healing since the dawn of human history. More commonly known for ailments such as insomnia and anxiety, marijuana is also often used for more serious applications such as cancer therapy, chronic pain relief, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Due to its interaction with our own body’s endocannabinoids, which regulate control over much of the nervous system, cannabis uses the body’s own tools to repair itself. It is no exaggeration to call cannabis a miracle drug–in a peer-reviewed scientific paper published in 2013, doctors Pal Pacher and George Junos state that modulating endocannabinoid system activity “may have therapeutic potential in almost all diseases affecting humans”.
