Beyonce Takes Interest in Building Her Cannabis Farm

In recent years, authorities all over the world have become more accepting of the use of cannabis. Scientific evidence has played a role in finally bringing an end to the war on drugs.

Cannabis has been conventionally used as a herbal plant in the past. However, given the psychedelic effects on consumers, many people started using it as compulsion and abuse.

Consequently, governments worldwide made strict laws against the growth, possession, and use of cannabis. Nonetheless, with the progression of time and the development of science, all previous misconceptions have been cleared.

Researchers dwelled deep on the medical and health benefits of the plant, considering its past. As a result, they succeeded in finding scientific proof to back their theories and verify the advantages of cannabis.

Scientific evidence coupled with the mass support from the people resulted in the authorities revising their policies regarding cannabis. Moreover, many countries all over the world have legalized either medical or recreational cannabis.

The change in law has given way to a lot of opportunities for people in the cannabis industry. In an article, Green Entrepreneur talks about Beyoncé’s plans of making her cannabis farms.

CBD – Medical and Recreational Benefits 

Cannabis or marijuana originates from the dried leaves, stems, and flowers of the plant Cannabis sativa. There are more than 100 chemical compounds in the plant. Each of these compounds has a distinct effect on the human body.

The two major active compounds of the plant are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD is the chemical component of cannabis that gives it its herbal properties.

Meanwhile, THC is a psychoactive compound that interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the body and induces psychedelic effects that give the consumer the feeling of being high.

Many countries worldwide have legalized or decriminalized the medical and recreational use of cannabis. They have taken these steps keeping into account the health benefits of CBD, a few of which are:

  • The Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) has approved the use of cannabis for treating cannabis.
  • We can use cannabis for treating depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Helps in managing chronic pain
  • Reduces inflammation
  • It helps opioid and alcohol addicts to quit drug intake
  • Relieves symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Helps with symptoms of chemotherapy, such as nausea and vomiting
  • It has antioxidant properties; therefore, it can help stop premature aging
  • Reduces the production of excess oils in people with oily skin

Effects of Cannabis On Your Body

The human body is very complex. It has unique reactions to different kinds of chemical compounds. Similarly, cannabis consumption also produces a few effects on the brain and body.

Consuming cannabis affects the brain as it triggers the release of dopamine and heightens sensory perceptions. Moreover, it alters balance and coordination and retards the reflexes.

Cannabis is effective in releasing the pressure in the eyes, providing temporary relief from symptoms of glaucoma. Furthermore, its consumption stimulates digestion, increasing the consumer’s appetite and reducing the chances of vomiting.

Additionally, cannabis leads to palpitations, increased heart rate, and expands the blood vessels. Also, it affects the CNS and reduces pain and inflammation.

Most importantly, cannabis consumption should be avoided by people who have Parkinson’s disease, liver diseases, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers.

Moreover, it should be kept under consideration that all the evidence backing the health benefits of cannabis is from preliminary research, and more insight and proof are needed.

Risks and Interactions of CBD

There are some side effects, health risks, and medical interactions that can result from CBD consumption. Furthermore, side effects associated with CBD are primarily a result of an unbalanced dosage.

These include drowsiness, fatigue, diarrhea, low blood pressure, dry mouth. Moreover, people have also reported feeling nauseous because of CBD consumption.

Additionally, some health risks associated with the use of CBD are:

  • It can cause liver injuries
  • May lead to mental health issues
  • Increases the risk of some cancers, such as testicular cancer
  • Worsens the symptoms of asthma,
  • This leads to different kinds of respiratory issues

Furthermore, consuming CBD and other medicines can lead to interactions that may increase or dampen the medicine’s effects. Moreover, CBD absorption is increased by fatty foods.

Some research shows adverse effects of CBD on male fertility; however, researchers need to conduct further research to confirm this.

Legality of CBD

Although there have been many changes in the laws concerning cannabis, its legality in the US is still unclear. Many states have legalized the use, growth, and possession of medical or recreational cannabis.

However, as per federal law, cannabis is still a Schedule I controlled substance, making it federally illegal.

Nonetheless, the Farm Bill 2018 has legalized the growth and use of hemp, i.e., cannabis with low levels (less than 0.3%) of THC and high in CBD.

Because of the conflict, the legality of cannabis in the US lies in the gray area.
