It’s late, and you can’t sleep but desperately need sleep to function the next day. What can you do? Try smoking a bowl.
Weed has come a long way since propaganda films like “Reefer Madness” of the 1930s. The film convinced people that one hit would cause you to go insane, hallucinate, and commit murder.
Now it’s becoming increasingly acceptable to discuss using recreational cannabis to relax and unwind. As of November 2020, 68% of Americans supported the legalization of recreational cannabis.
Benefits of Recreational Cannabis
Recently, research into the benefits of cannabis has kicked into overdrive. Many states have legalized the medical use of cannabis, and some have legalized recreational cannabis. The great thing about recreational cannabis is that you can buy it to enjoy and help relieve various conditions.
Cannabis research is currently in its infancy, however, early reports suggest cannabis can help relieve some of the following common ailments.
1. Stress and Anxiety Relief
Cannabis may be the perfect remedy after a long, stressful day. People often report lower levels of feelings of stress after using cannabis.
Some people claim they have a more positive outlook on the same stressful event than before partaking. Others report relief from anxiety when using cannabis but say it can return when using too much or with certain strains.
2. Pain Relief
One of the most common reasons people use cannabis is to manage pain. Cannabinoids, the primary compounds found in cannabis, can interact with receptors located in the central nervous system.
When cannabinoids interact with these receptors, it’s believed they can offer some pain relief. Many people with chronic pain are trading their pain medications for cannabis.
3. Improved Sleep
Getting a good, restful night’s sleep is another excellent benefit of partaking in recreational cannabis. There are many strains on the market known for inducing sleep. If you struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep, cannabis might be the answer you’ve been looking for.
However, not all cannabis induces sleep, so you should consult your local bud-tender and inquire about sleep-inducing strains.
4. Enhance Exercise
Increased motivation is another reported benefit of recreational cannabis. Contrary to beliefs that cannabis makes you lazy, many people use it to enhance their workout.
It may help to impart focus and clarity as well as prolonging endurance. Long-distance runners, in particular, find it increases enjoyment and even aids in recovery after.
5. Increase Creativity
Cannabis is valued as a powerful tool to kickstart the creative process and let the mind concentrate. Many writers, artists, and musicians swear that the use of cannabis stimulates the muse of creativity.
6. Increased Libido
Recent research indicates cannabis increases not only sexual desire but also satisfaction – especially in women. So, when planning your next sexy date night, you may want to stock up on your favorite strain. Just make sure it’s not a sleep-inducing strain.
