4 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Cannabis Products

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

While only 46% of American adults have ever used marijuana, 91% say it should be legal for both medical and recreational use. It’s clear that the cannabis plant is a powerful force in our society.

Despite this, you might not know much about it. So you’d be surprised to learn about its benefits and harmlessness!

Has this intrigued you? Then read on for 4 things you probably didn’t know about cannabis products.

1. It Has Deep Roots in Human History

You might think that cannabis usage is a relatively recent thing. But you’d be wrong!

The reality is, cannabis has been a part of history since 5,000 years ago. We’ve found burned cannabis seeds in Siberian burial mounds that date back to 3,000 BC. And large quantities of mummified psychoactive marijuana dating back to 2,500 BC have been found in those buried in Siberia and China.

We’ve been using cannabis products for millennia now, so it’s nothing new!

2. There Have Been No Overdose Deaths

While cannabis is considered a drug, there have been no overdose deaths. This makes it one of the safest drugs out there to do!

Yes, it’s possible to overdose on marijuana, but you’ll just feel sick and recover soon after. It’s humanly impossible to die from marijuana, as you’d need to smoke 1,500 pounds of this stuff in under 15 minutes to do so!

It’s safe to say that no matter what strain you use and how you consume it, you won’t die from using cannabis.

3. Cannabis Products Are Rich With Cannabinoids

Marijuana is famous for its cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). It’s the main compound found in cannabis and is responsible for the psychoactive effects you feel when consuming it.

But while it’s the main cannabinoid, it’s not the only one. Another one of interest in recent years has been CBD, as it gives a lot of the same effects, but without getting you high.

It’s best to take cannabis products that are full-spectrum, as you’ll experience the entourage effect. All the cannabinoids (plus the flavonoids and terpenes) work together to amplify one another’s effects.

If you can’t afford to test positive on a drug test at work, then a good alternative is broad-spectrum. This removes THC but keeps everything else in the product.

4. Hemp Is Cannabis

When you hear “cannabis”, you probably just think of people lighting up and getting high. But the world of cannabis is so much bigger than that!

Marijuana and hemp both come from cannabis plants. And hemp has a whole world of uses that don’t involve psychoactive effects.

For example, you can still smoke hemp flower and get health benefits without feeling impaired. In this case, you want to look for CBD hemp flower and CBG hemp flower. There are also many products made from hemp, like clothing, shoes, rope, etc.

Cannabis Products Are Quite Interesting

As you can see, humankind has been using cannabis products all throughout history; it’s nothing new. Also, you can’t die from an overdose, and you can benefit from its many cannabinoids. Not to mention, hemp products are considered part of the cannabis family too!

So now that you know more about cannabis, doesn’t it offer a world of good? Maybe it’s time for you to give it a try if you haven’t already!
