Cannabis – The Facts, Fallacies and Fears

Table of Contents

Introduction

Cannabis has a long and colourful history and the use of cannabis originated in central Asia or western China. It was first used by Emperor Shen Nung who is also regarded as the father of Chinese medicine in the 2800 BC. It is also said Shiva the supreme Hindu God was given the title “Lord Of Bhang” as the cannabis plant was his favourite food. Many ancient texts of the Indian Hindus, Geeks and the Romans have indicated cannabis plant to be therapeutic and have used it to treat different health problems like arthritis, pain, lack of appetite and many more. Afterwords it was mostly used for smoking which can cause harm to the body and reduce its benefits.

The flower of cannabis plant is used for medicinal purposes, industrial purposes (hemp fiber) and for smoking/vaping purposes. There are different methods of consuming cannabis and each method affects the body in a different way.

When you inhale the cannabis smoke into your lungs its compounds immediately enter into your bloodstream and within seconds reach your brain and other organs. When you eat or dink cannabis containing products the compounds first pass through your digestive system and liver before reaching the bloodstream.

Effects of Cannabis on The Body

  • Memory Problem – It can hamper the way your brain processes information and affects its ability to form new memories.
  • Breathing Issues – The smoke you inhale contains a mixture of chemicals that can irritate your lungs, make you experience a burning throat and increases risks of bronchitis.
  • Digestion – It can help to boost appetite and maybe helpful in reducing vomiting and nausea which benefits people who are being treated for cancer or AIDS.
  • Blood circulation – It can cause an immediate jump in your heart rate and expands your blood vessels which leads to red and puffy eyes. 

The effect of Cannabis on each individual is different from the other. The form in which one consumes cannabis is very important and factors such as the method of consumption, dosage and frequency play an important role. Some individuals benefit from its therapeutic properties while others may face severe consequences.

Conclusion

Individuals with extensive cannabis use often experience multiple medical conditions and disorders at the same time. Studies suggest individuals may also be addicted to other substances like cocaine or alcohol and need proper medicines and behavioural therapies to reduce their cannabis use, especially those who take high dosages and suffer from chronic mental disorders.
