Emerging Benefits of Cannabis in Human Health Disorders

[vc_column_text]Cannabis is starting to prove itself a safe and effective natural substance to cure many illnesses and disorders previously unanswered.

Marijuana’s medical properties have fallen under the spotlight in recent years, and people are starting to realize its powerful healing effects. 


Is it safe?

To date, no deaths have ever been reported as a result of cannabis use. 

As the prominent cannabinoid in the medical field, CBD only has a few minor side effects in some cases such as nausea, fatigue, and irritability.  These effects are not repeated consistently and are not present in all patients.  

The weight of the positive effects of medical marijuana on psychological and physical ailments far outweigh its minor side-effects that occur in some cases.[/vc_column_text]

Medical Cannabis: Long term & Short Term Use

Long-term cannabis use according to professional prescription can alleviate depression to a certain degree, assist in weight loss and assist in skin rejuvenation.

It is worth noting that consuming too much CBD or THC can cause enhanced negative side effects and can be very unpleasant temporarily, so be sure to always stick to prescription.[/vc_column_text]


The Human Endocannabinoid System 


[vc_column_text]You might wonder how our bodies react so positively towards cannabis. Well, that’s because we have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), and it mainly consists of: 

  • Endocannabinoids produced by our body
  • Receptors in our body
  • Enzymes produced by our body

Endocannabinoids are molecules similar to cannabinoids, produced by our body. This system works together with the cannabinoids in cannabis such as THC & CBD – to name but the popular ones. 

The main purpose of our ECS is to regulate our internal system. The ECS plays a role in all functions in the list below (and more) which ultimately refers to homeostasis – the stability of your internal environment.  

  • Learning ability & memory
  • Appetite
  • Sleep
  • Digestion
  • Chronic pain
  • Mood

Proven Healing Properties in Human Disorders



Mental disorders

Although this field has not been properly and entirely studied to conclude (due to very recent legalization), cannabis has been found to relieve anxiety, ADHD, and depression.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]


Cannabis can act against depression by releasing endorphins, which make you feel better about yourself. 

If prescribed medical cannabis is used continually, it has the potential to lighten the symptoms of depression enough to clear your mind to ultimately regain your mental health. 

Chronic stress has been found to suppress the brain’s production of endocannabinoids, which can lead to depression-like behaviour. Introducing cannabis to the system helps to resolve normal levels and functions within the ECS, and ultimately adds to healthier regulation.[/vc_column_text]



CBD has been approved for seizure treatment in two rare forms of Epilepsy. Early studies have also found CBD to be effective against other types of Epilepsy. 

In some cases, cannabis products can increase seizure frequency – so make sure you follow professional medical advice accurately. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]


Cannabis has positive effects in both reducing inflammation and myriad elements associated with inflammation. The fusion effect created by the combination of cannabinoids, including THC, provides an even better result. 

This synergy greatly reduces inflammation and thus also the diseases and pains that go with it. [/vc_column_text]



THC is said to have a greater effect on the way the mind perceives pain, whereas CBD works to ease the pain at the source, such as pain caused by inflammation. 

CBD is also generally the preferred option since it has no psychoactive effects. [/vc_column_text]

[vc_column_text]Indica strains are known for their pain-relief qualities, although here are some of the best strains for pain relief:

  • White widow – Indica dominant hybrid
  • ACDC – Sativa dominant hybrid
  • Northern Lights – Indica
  • Afghan Kush – High CBD Indica


[vc_column_text]Indica is a dominant variant in pain relief and targets: 

  • Joint pain
  • non-migraine headaches
  • Spasticity
  • Neuropathy


[vc_column_text]People with chronic pain also frequent CBD oil as treatment as researchers think that CBD links to a core component of your Endocannabinoid-system. 

The response from your ECS receptors creates pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects that help with overall pain management. [/vc_column_text]



Although having the munchies is a well-known short-term effect of some strains of marijuana, long-term use individuals show fewer signs of obesity than people their similar age and sex who do not use cannabis. 

Cannabis use leads to the following points which ultimately lead to reducing obesity:

  • Lower stress
  • Increase mobility
  • Boost Metabolism
  • Cane cause some people to drink less
  • Improve sleep

Choosing the correct strain will affect this outcome. [/vc_column_text]



Cannabis can alleviate the causes of anorexia physically and psychologically

Cases of marijuana relieving people of obsessive calorie counting or nausea that drives them away from food have been submitted plenty in the past. 

The THC in cannabis stimulates the metabolism and appetite. Some studies indicate that cannabis use can increase your daily calorie intake by up to 40%.  

Choosing the correct strain will affect this outcome.[/vc_column_text]


Legal implications

In South Africa, the medical and personal use, as well as the cultivation of cannabis, is legal, the latter only being legal to a certain extent. From a medical perspective, patients can be prescribed THC and/or CBD for different medical needs.  [/vc_column_text]


Prescriptions & Dosage

Medical Marijuana prescriptions can be obtained from a registered pharmacist only. A doctor will assess a patient and then provide a prescription.[/vc_column_text]


CBD Oils & Concentrates

A major product in multiple fields such as pain, nausea, inflammation, and many more, CBD oil is one of the most known forms of medical cannabis. 

A few reputable brands are:

  • African Pure
  • Goodleaf
  • Cheeba CBD




Cannarite proudly boasts its collection of hardware used to consume THC & CBD concentrates, some of our most popular, quality-driven products:[/vc_column_text]



At least 19 years has been found the minimum age a patent has to be to be prescribed cannabis, despite the legal age of 18.

Cannabis can be prescribed to any age upwards from 19. 

The anti-inflammatory properties in CBD make it a neuroprotective agent, supporting its help in disorders like Parkinson’s. [/vc_column_text]


Recreational use

Illegally acquired or homegrown cannabis is not recommended for health purposes as their cannabinoid profiles cannot be guaranteed or accurately predicted. There are still benefits to consuming homegrown cannabis but those will not be in line with pharmaceutical-grade cannabis. 

The levels of THC and CBD in flowers grown in controlled (pharmaceutical grade) environments yield strong and accurate cannabinoid profiles aimed at providing certain medical benefits.  [/vc_column_text]
