Weed is a Wonder Plant
Marijuana is making its long awaited return, while some people still clutch to the old ways, most of us are moving into a new light and it is because, cannabis saves lives.
Lets for a second forget about the hundreds of aliments the cannabis plant has been prescribed for, and talk about the psychoactive benefits of the herb. The benefits the herb has on our minds in times of creativity, depression and anxiety have helped people through harsh times.
Cannabis flower contains 113 know cannabinoids and most users recall the differences between Indica and Sativa. Differences are due to the chemicals found in the trichomes of each strain. Not only do cannabinoids effect your high, but terpenes and flavionoids, other chemicals found in cannabis, are psychoactive and influence our mood.

On a psychological level, all these chemicals add up to produce the unique effects we seek. Cannabis users embark on an experience to raise their vibrations. Waves of euphoria rush over us while relaxing and melting into the couch or getting lost in a view. Laughing at our favorite TV shows, allowing stress and anxiety to melt, like a candle in the night. Sometimes we can feel energetic and talkative, taking away social awkwardness and feelings of anxiety, fueling adventures and hikes.
