In the contemporary world, more countries are legalizing medicinal cannabis because it is impossible to ignore the fact that this ‘magical’ plant contains chemicals that may help treat a wide range of illnesses. Truth is, plenty of health benefits are attached to medicinal hemp. Below are some;

Treatment for chronic pain

This is one of the best-supported uses of hemp. Marijuana or cannabis contains compounds known as cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that relieve pain and nausea when administered to a patient. For instance, cannabis reduces some of the pain and nausea from chemotherapy according to several studies. Also, a research paper done in 2016 found that people with chronic migraines experienced a decrease in migraine episodes after taking hemp powders and hemp seeds. However, there’s a need for more research into the idea of cannabis Sativa and its species being used for chronic pain management.

Consumption of hemp may help control epileptic seizures

Epilepsy is caused by mental illness or retardation, brain damage, tumours, or even abnormal brain development. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) substances found in cannabis have been used widely to control these seizures.

Hemp is known to help with inflammatory bowel diseases.

Studies suggest that patients with inflammatory bowel diseases benefit significantly from the consumption of hemp. The point of the matter is the THC chemicals found in hemp interact with cells in the body that play an essential role in gut function and immune responses. Moreover, hemp oils have the same relieving effects when applied to the swollen parts of your body.

It relieves arthritis, soreness and throbbing.


According to researchers, hemp seeds, hemp oils, and hemp powders alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote sleep. In fact, health and nutrition experts recommend this for arthritis patients. You can get more info at the HempCaptain.

Hemp users tend to be less obese.

Obesity is a lifestyle disorder that has long-term adverse effects if not controlled. Luckily, using hemp, especially when it is added to your healthy diet, tends to reduce or limit weight gain. As a matter of fact, hemp researchers suggest that people who have gotten used to having hemp hearts and seeds in their daily meals are skinnier than the average person and have healthier metabolism.

Hemp is known to relieve muscle cramps.

Spasms of skeletal muscles are caused by muscle fatigue, dehydration, and electrolyte abnormalities. Most people fail to notice that these spasms occur abruptly, and although short-lived, they are very painful. The good news is that the pain can be relieved by massaging hemp oils onto the affected area. And other than muscle cramps, it is also a good remedy for contractions and pain often experienced by those with sclerosis.

Well, there you have it! From the above-listed benefits, it is evident that we have much to benefit from hemp. And yes, although it might have come as a surprise, the truth is that there are health benefits related to medicinal cannabis Sativa.
