People around the world are shifting their focus from treating illness, to embracing wellness. This is evident by the astounding growth in the wellness market. The global wellness industry reached $4.2 trillion according to the 2018 Global Wellness Economy Monitor, representing a 12.8% growth over two years.
Wellness can obviously mean different things to different people. For some, it’s about nutrition, supplements and fitness. For others, it’s nurturing the mind or spirit.
Here at Heal You, we believe in providing the Ultimate Healing Experience while utilizing a holistic approach to support mental, physical and spiritual healing. We strongly believe that cannabis is a source that supports our overall mission. Our mission is to guide you along your journey and Heal You.
Health Benefits of Cannabis
Cannabis is one of the most potent full-spectrum medicines known to date. It’s the medicine of choice for millions of people, providing health benefits that span our bodies, minds, hearts, spirits, relationships and workplaces.
Cannabis for Physical Health – Build a Healthy Body
More people than ever recognize that cannabis has some physical health benefits. But few understand how comprehensive those advantages are. Cannabinoids provide support for your muscles, brain, stomach, eyes, skin and so much more.
Medicinal marijuana can help you:
- Ease pain – both acute and chronic
- Reduce inflammation
- Lose weight
- Promote clear skin and eliminate acne
- Regulation insulin levels, and in turn, diabetes
- Treat epilepsy and reduce seizures
- Control muscle spasms and tremors associated with multiple sclerosis and epilepsy
- Increase appetite
- Calm nausea
- Soothe symptoms of IBD and Crohn’s disease
- Prevent the growth and spread of cancer
- Treat metabolic disorders
- Overcome addictions
This wide range of applications might just be why there are an estimated 3.5M medical marijuana patients in the U.S.. Of course, acne isn’t a valid reason to qualify for a prescription. But if you do have a medical card because of chronic pain or one of the other approved conditions, clear skin might just be a happy side effect.
Cannabis for Emotional Health – Find Your Joy
It’s safe to say that most people, at one time or another, have difficulty at times regulating their emotions – whether it’s navigating through a particularly tough stage in life or combating the daily challenges that are part of being human.
Marijuana can be a good medicine to help find and maintain emotional balance. Many people choose it to:
- Increase happiness
- Reduce depression
- Eliminate anger
- Ease anxiety
It’s important to know that different strains and species create different emotional affects. Cannabis sativa is said to provide an uplifting experience and increased happiness, while cannabis indica might soothe sad and angry feelings. CBD-dominant strains are often the preferred option for patients with anxiety.
Cannabis for Spiritual Health – Breathe and Be Present
For centuries, people have used the cannabis plant to increase spiritual connection and heighten awareness of ethereal energies. Spiritual cultures throughout history – ranging from Taoists and Hindus, to Buddhists and Rastafarians, to Ancient Greeks and possibly even Christians in the time of the Old Testament – incorporated the sacred plant into religious ceremonies and mystical practices.
But you don’t need to go back thousands of years to find record of the spiritual benefits of marijuana. Modern day gurus and seekers alike report that it can:
- Increase awareness
- Raise chi
- Open chakras
- Enhance intuition and psychic senses
- Improve meditation
If you’re on a quest to align with divinity, nature, God or your own Soul, perhaps consider taking some cannabis on your journey – that is, if you have your medical card or live in a state that allows recreational use.
