With the increasing rise of dispensaries offering medicinal marijuana (in California, there may be as many as 80 medical marijuana dispensaries in Sacramento), there has also been an uptick of curiosity of using medical marijuana as a nutritional supplement.
Marijuana’s two active ingredients (cannabinoids) can also be added to the list of known food additives. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) were discovered to have an antioxidant function that protects cells from free radical damage as early as 1998.
The antioxidant industry or, more accurately, the multibillion-dollar multivitamin industry—produces a plethora of drugs containing all imaginable vitamin blends to maintain the body healthy and the skin radiant on a daily basis. Among the vitamins in these items, the vitamins C and E-THC and CBD were found to be more powerful antioxidants than these.Feel free to find more information at Dispensary-Happy Time Recreational Marijuana Dispensary Mount Vernon.
The findings of the study are fascinating. Marijuana extracts can be used to cure or avoid strokes, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart attacks.
Since then, chemists have created synthetic chemicals with THC-like properties (the “hot” chemical used in marijuana) and CBD-like properties (which will not get you high).
THC-like synthetics K2 and Spice are extracted from cannabicyclohexanol, which is used in marijuana. Dexanabinol is a synthetic drug that is identical to CBD.
When there are billions of money to be found, don’t want the government to be left behind. Despite this, the US government applied for and received US Patent 6630507 in 2003 for the synthesis of marijuana-like compounds for use as antioxidants and brain protectants.
The fact that marijuana is still illegal could have influenced the decision. That is, it will be in the government’s (and private companies’) best interests to retain marijuana extracts illegal such that synthetic substitutes will continue to be produced.
Don’t hold your breath on nationwide drug legalisation too fast, including America’s schizophrenic position on marijuana (THC is legal as a medicine in several states but remains illegal at the federal level). Instead, CBD-infused health food additives may be marketed in supermarkets, and THC-rich extracts could be used in legal medicinal marijuana facilities as relief for the terminally sick and debilitated (though this is unlikely).
There is strong proof that THC / CBD is involved in nearly every significant function in life, including the production of substances in the body. That’s one of the reasons why they’re such good cell protectors.
So, if cannabinoids are so legal, then do marijuana users have such a poor reputation? And if you have bad hair, bad eyes, and anything else? The reaction may be attributed in part to drug use and the consumption of unhealthy junk foods and alcoholic drinks that go along with it. Cannabinoids also act as antioxidants. Since smoking is an oxidative operation, it negates the antioxidants’ supposed health benefits. It is not healthy to smoke, whether it is tobacco or hemp.
