With Colorado and Washington being the first two states to legalize the sale and consumption of recreational marijuana is beginning to force many questioning people to look a little deeper into such an issue. Also, with so many other states having legalized medical marijuana dispensaries around major cities, more and more people have come to learn about many of the amazing healing powers of cannabis oil through massage or other topical applications. Here are some of the many benefits to using cannabis for healing.
Lessens Pain Without Feeling High
Many people are coming to understand that marijuana and cannabis are entirely separate from one another. By applying a small amount of cannabis oil to your skin, you might feel a little bit of a numbing sensation that can ease pain you might have on the surface of your skin or in your muscle tissue. However, this small amount of the drug in cannabis oil will not leave you feeling strange and disoriented like smoking marijuana will. In fact, more and more places are using an oil called CBD or Cannabidiol for massage as a way to heal various injuries from sports or from chronic aging. It is a safe way to ease the pain in the body without leaving patients to deal with getting home with a “foggy head”.
This type of oil is also popular for massage because it has an immediate effect on the muscles close to the surface of your skin. It allows them to relax easier so that the massage therapist is able to better break down the tissues and work through painful knots all over your body. The best part about it is that you are able to take some of this oil home with you so that you can continue treating sore muscles and injuries without paying an arm and a leg in expensive massages.
Cannabis can ease the mind without making you feel too high
People have been using cannabis for exactly this for ages since the plant was discovered for medicinal uses. This is a great way to keep you mind away from any painful injuries you might be dealing with on a day to day basis.
Does not harm your lungs
Because you are not going to be smoking this drug like you would marijuana, your lungs are completely safe from any kind of harm. That being said, so is the rest of your body. There are not harmful side effects of using cannabis oil on your skin from time to time. In fact, this could be a far more natural solution compared to a lot of over the counter pain relievers that can end up being harsh on your stomach and liver.
Curative Powers for Other Ailments
Supposedly, through recent studies being performed on patients suffering from epilepsy, cannabis oil can actually be helpful to prevent future seizures. This is really exciting news for so many people suffering from such a disorder.
