We look forward to the day when the positive effects of cannabis are recognized worldwide, and we believe this day is rapidly approaching. We hope to serve as an example that cannabis-based businesses can have a positive effect on both the local community, and the local economy.
At Trees, we believe that cannabis can be used as a powerful holistic medicine and that it offers a natural alternative to, or supplement for many modern pharmaceuticals.
Cannabis has been used for a wide variety of medical ailments over the course of many centuries and interacts with the human body through the endocannabinoid system, which is connected to various parts of the brain, immune system, nervous system, and muscular system.
Compounds known as cannabinoids interact with this system when cannabis is consumed. This can produce a number of effects, depending on variety. Here are a few of the possible effects:
The two main cannabinoids that are used for medical treatment are known as THC and CBD. THC is an inebriating substance. It can often be used to help with sleep, stress, and pain, but can also be stimulating and inspiring. CBD acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, and it is not inebriating.
At Trees, we do all we can to keep abreast of the latest research regarding medical cannabis. If you have any questions, please ask!
