As of July 2018, cannabis in Canada will be completely legal. It is something that shows our country moving in the right direction, although it has split opinion across Canada; being a regular weed smoker, I can see how it has divided opinion with some people. I believe personally in terms of its medicinal purposes, the legalisation of cannabis in Canada is a good move and shows our country is moving forward.
The health benefits play a huge factor in the legalisation of weed. My reason to smoke is down to the fact that it completely relaxes you. It helps you fall asleep faster due to its largely sedative effects and helps with alleviating stress.
Cannabis in Canada is now a reality… It will help those in desperate need.
People that suffer from PTSD, insomnia and various pains around the body can really help aid in the recovery of these pains by smoking cannabis. A study carried out in Canada proved that it also helped with the breathing of sleep apnea sufferers in almost all cases. This again backs the reason as to why the government have gone forward with the legalisation of cannabis in Canada.
Indicas and Sativas
It is all about choosing the right strain depending on what you need. By doing research and looking at what you need specific to you, certain strains can really help you out. Sativa strains tend to be energizing, with Girl Scout Cookies being a notable hybrid that you may have heard of. Indica strains are known to be more relaxing and soothing. It all depends on how you want to feel and how it can help your certain issues. It also depends on the way you consume the marijuana and depending on whether you eat it or smoke it and it will have separate effects on your body.
You should not rely on cannabis to get you to sleep all of the time but it can certainly help you drift off. It is all about combining your sleeping environment to your cannabis consumption; your sleeping environment can sometimes be overlooked. Creating a space where you can completely unwind and be comfortable is crucial to building a healthy sleeping habit. Having a smoke to unwind on the evening is a nice little addition to help you relax. If you are having sleeping difficulties, you should consult a doctor before you do anything and they can guide you in the right direction by potentially incorporating cannabis into your treatment plan.
Keep calm and stay relaxed
By keeping your evening relaxing, this can help you out if you have any disruptive sleeping patterns. By avoiding caffeine and by putting your phone down before you go to bed, you can incorporate weed into your diet, which could potentially help with your sleeping issues. Trying out all of these methods is key. It may be different for each person but you can work out what is best for you.
There are so many obvious benefits and it is a really good decision to finally see cannabis in Canada legalised. Is there a future where it will be incorporated into practices and hospitals? I believe that the many benefits will outweigh the negative connotations associated with cannabis and generally, you can feel a shift in terms of more people moving towards the side that defends the legislation.
