THC is the most famous cannabinoid of all, especially for being responsible for the sensation of “putting on” the consumer and making it especially attractive to recreational consumers.
But apart from the widely-known psychoactive effects, THC is also responsible for some of the medicinal qualities of the plant. These qualities have been tested and confirmed in numerous studies conducted in various countries of the world. Many people now vape THC using filters like hapac®. Made by Liberty Herbal Technologies, hapac® is a technology system that consists of small, ready to use filter papers that include herbal cannabis and is designed for dry herb vaporizers. These sachets allow cannabis to be heated gently, which creates an inhalable vapor. Unlike other products in the market, there’s no burning, no cannabis is wasted, and toxicants and odor are drastically reduced, making it a great choice. Here are a few benefits that you get from using THC.
- Pain Relief
Many medical cannabis patients suffer from terrible chronic pain, for example, in countries like Israel, it is considered for cannabis treatment. Marijuana helps many people by relieving headaches and migraines, and fighting chronic pain is difficult. THC acts against these situations through receptors in the endocannabinoid system in the body.
- Treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder
One of the short-term effects of THC is the slight and temporary interruption of short-term memory. This influence can be inconvenient for many, but in people with PTSD, THC facilities by the same mechanism help them to move forward and deal better with difficult memories. An Israeli study published in 2014 found that cannabis use can also cure the damage caused by this phenomenon.
In post-trauma care, medical cannabis is helping former military personnel suffering from this symptom in the United States Army and Israel.
- Relief of nausea and vomiting
Patients who are given chemotherapy to fight cancer suffer from nausea and vomiting as a result of the body voluntarily eliminating toxins that enter it during treatment.
THC helps mitigate these uncomfortable feelings and helps the body deal with the presence of toxins, therefore significantly improving the quality of life of patients.
- Appetite stimulation
This phenomenon of hunger, known for the desire to eat a lot and everything, makes cannabis use actually increase the bacterial activity of the stomach caused by the presence of THC in the bloodstream that reaches the digestive system. For some patients, this effect is the essence of the whole treatment, or most of it, especially in cases of patients with gastrointestinal problems, such as patients with Crohn’s disease, but also for patients who have difficulty eat under the influence of several medications and need to stimulate the natural appetite.
