Today we celebrate your favorite rapper’s, favorite recreational plant: Marijuana. As of recent, the sticky icky has been in the news more so for its potent health benefits and legalization politics. At this moment, 30 of the 50 states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana to some extent. Studies have shown, the medicinal herb is beneficial to anyone suffering illnesses such as glaucoma, chronic pain, anxiety, menstrual cramps, endometriosis and Cachexia aka “wasting syndrome” associated with HIV patients.
Marijuana is composed of 133 known cannabinoids, compounds that interact with the body’s internal endocannabinoid system. Besides THC, (the chemical that gets you high) CBD is the compound that’s blowing all the smoke in the beauty world. CBD has been proven to help clear acne, reduce inflammation, and relieve stress.
