How can cannabis help me?

Listen to the professional:

While all medical cannabis patients can consult with their recommending physician for his or her advice on the most appropriate strains of cannabis for sleep and various other disorders, one of the best resources is a cannabis professional. But who is a “professional” in the cannabis industry? Well, that is for you to decide, but they should have both integrity and your well-being in mind, not just the sale of their personal products.

Luckily, if you live in the United States, States like Colorado, Oregon, and California enjoy safe access to cannabis medicine that involves free consultation with a professional. The cannabis industry is not novel to those states, and eco-tourism has turned this incredible plant into an agricultural tourism destination for places like the Colorado Rockies and the coastlines of California.

Those who have access to trained, professional are foolish to not leverage the wisdom and experience of these cannabis medicine experts. True industry experts are exposed to and gather feedback from literally hundreds of clients and patients per week, learning the strains of cannabis that produce particular results — and for whom.

One strain might be perfect for an octogenarian cancer patient simply trying to abate the nausea of chemotherapy in an effort to get some sleep, but not the best solution for a 25-year-old single mother of two suffering from menstrual cramps who desperately needs relief from acute pain, inflammation and perhaps a nap.

With an estimated 5,000+ strains of cannabis worldwide, the efficacy of the plant for sleep and particular conditions such as insomnia is highly variable, but undeniably present. Different strains can produce markedly different reactions from humans, and understanding how the plant’s effects on your body is for you and you alone to determine. Listen to your body, and trust me when I say that, it knows what is best for you. At Becalmed CBD we suggest to all of our clients to start with a lower dosage, and let your body react accordingly. Know the difference between ∆9-THC and CBD, understand the difference between a Full-Spectrum Oil profile and Isolate. The cannabis plant can help you with various ailments, from chronic and acute pain management and inflammation, to cell proliferation and regeneration, not to mention insomnia and anxiety.

By definition a cannabis oil concentrate is a collection of specific cannabinoids with the non-desired compounds removed [hopefully], while a richly enhanced sativa, such as Durban Poison, offers an energizing and cerebral experience for those who consume it, an indica like Afghani may deliver the polar opposite effect and result in lethargy, grogginess, and even sleep. Each of these sets of side effects is of great medical value, although to very different patient populations and involving important variables, such as the time of day or the nature of one’s work responsibilities. So make sure that you understand what your body is telling you when you consume an herbal remedy, insulate yourself from daily activities such as driving or handling children, until you have a better understanding of the chemicals that are interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system [ECS].
