Proof: Marijuana Relaxes You
No longer is it simply speculation or word from the ‘stoner’ proving the relaxing benefits of marijuana. An abundance of research conducted over the past few years shows strong evidence supporting these benefits. Marijuana contains a minimum of 85 cannabinoids that each play a different role on the brain. THC and CBD are the two most common of those cannabinoids, and most powerful. The THC cannabinoid is responsible for the ‘high’ the user feels, while CBD is responsible for producing feelings of happiness, relief, and calmness in the user. Many people prefer a marijuana strain combining both THC and CBD. Many are available for those with preference for either.
If you prefer a THC strain for relaxation relief and the added fun that it brings, make sure that indica strains are your preferred product. Indica, sativa, and hybrid strains are available and while each has its own benefits, it is the indica strains that will have you up and at ‘em, and ready to celebrate without any worries bringing you down.
The Amazing Benefits of Marijuana
During the many studies conducted concerning the benefits of marijuana it was discovered that dopamine and anandamide are released during the smoking process. These chemicals in the brain are responsible for our moods, so when they’re released, we feel great. The effects of this chemical release can last for hours or even days in some users.
Studies showed that smoking marijuana reduced hostility and anger in those dealing with such issues. Even people who previously created the problem with anti-anxiety medications or antidepressants dared better after smoking marijuana when compared to the use of the medications prescribed by a doctor.
Marijuana promotes drowsiness and causes better sleep at night. People who are dealing with insomnia find that marijuana is the perfect cure for a good night of sleep. All of the tension, stress, and anger is gone, and you are left to sleep like a baby, without those worries on your mind for a change.
Many people who use marijuana do so to self-medicate and alleviate signs of depression, to help them relax, and to overcome anxiety.

Although some people who consume marijuana say that it increases their anxiety, for most users, it provides the opposite and that is what the user wants and needs.
