If you were asked to describe cannabis using one word, then you would probably be confused between a lot of options. You could say cannabis is healing, relaxing, iconic, beneficial, healthy, harmful and a lot of other things. However one thing you have to admit can be used perfectly to describe cannabis is historic. This is one component that is no stranger to limelight. From being a drug whose consumption was heavily frowned upon to being available on various websites like Budpop hemp store, cannabis as a whole has truly come a long way.
The history of cannabis.
Weed or cannabis is not some artificial synthetic compound that was discovered recently. Ancient texts as well as many scriptures have proved the existence as well as through consumption of weed and marijuana in their full glory, long before the human civilisation had even fully understood what it was. People smoked weed because it helped them feel relaxed and more calm, it helped them get rid of their stress and anxiety. The scientific logic behind this is that the components in weed and marijuana, both when consumed supress overwhelming emotions in a person such as anxiety and stress. When weed enters a person’s body, it immediately supresses production of the hormones, such as adrenaline that causes one to experience such emotions. Reading this, you might be thinking that weed is extremely beneficial and should be consumed regularly. However people not too long ago thought the exact opposite, and this is because of the way it is consumed. Traditionally weed is crushed and rolled into a joint and then smoked in a way which is the same as how a cigarette is smoked. Since the way of consumption of both is same, people quickly assumed that they also held the same fatal properties. It did not help that the after effects of consuming weed were considered to be similar to those of drugs.
While it is true that consuming weed until some years ago was heavily frowned upon and discouraged. Over time, with the help of many weed consuming activists and researchers, people have discovered that not only does weed not pose any harm to it’s consumer but it also has many beneficial properties. This is why many companies are rushing to develop products like cbd gummies, oils etc. All these products contain the beneficial properties of weed and eliminate the hassle that goes on behind rolling a joint.
