6 Ways Cannabis is the Key to Eternal Youth
The human body is a very unique and complex machine – and that isn’t news to anyone. What is news to a lot of people is how cannabis can help that human body – and there are countless way. But we’ve got to start somewhere.
Here are 6 ways cannabis is effectively your very own private Fountain of Youth, keeping users healthy, happy and hungry 🙂
1. Keeps Skin Youthful and Glowing
Cannabis is full of antioxidants and its ability to reduce inflammation has some serious anti-aging properties. Topically applied, cannabis salves can also assist users with skin irritations such as eczema or rosacea.
2. Acts as a Sleep Aid
Cannabis is an ancient and natural way to lull your body into a restful sleep. Cannabis indica specifically can produce a feeling which many refer to as “couchlock,” meaning you don’t really want to go anywhere once you’ve sat down on the couch. Sounds restful to us.
3. Is Used to Relieve Arthritis Pain
Reduces inflammation. Anyone with arthritis pain will tell you it is one of the worst sensations you can have. It makes simple things like picking up your keys or opening a door more difficult than it should be. Cannabis reduces inflammation in joints and has proven itself as an effective medicine, both orally and topically, for arthritic pain sufferers.
4. Builds Strong Bones
While the research thus far has not yet been done on humans, scientists have found that cannabidol, or CBD, has been shown to help heal bones faster and protect against osteoporosis.
5. Boost Creativity and Spirit

6. Helps to Maintain Brain Function
Pot is now being considered a potential alzheimer’s treatment and has been shown to slow dementia. Alzheimers.Net reports:
“A preclinical study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that very small doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a chemical found in marijuana, can slow the production of beta-amyloid proteins, thought to be a hallmark characteristic and key contributor to the progression of Alzheimer’s.”
