Although cannabis legislation has come a long way in recent years, there’s still a bit of a stigma surrounding marijuana use. This is especially true in states where the drug remains illegal for both recreational and medicinal purposes, like Idaho, Wyoming, Kansas, and South Carolina. 

Thankfully, many other states have embraced cannabis for all the benefits it offers. It’s fully legal in Colorado, for example, which means you can stock up on edibles, flower, and concentrates at the best dispensary in Boulder regardless of whether you have a prescription. 

Once you’re ready to use the products you purchased, you can expect to reap the following benefits:

1. Reduced Pain

Inflammation has been linked to chronic pain. While powerful prescriptions drugs can relieve such pain, they’re not ideal for long-term use because they can be habit-forming. They can also have negative side effects, from nausea and vomiting to constipation and sedation.  

Thankfully, marijuana seems a viable alternative for those with chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain. The plant contains a nonpsychoactive component called cannabidiol (CBD) that appears to suppress chronic pain by combatting the underlying inflammation.  

2. Less GI Distress  

CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties also appear to reduce distress in the gastrointestinal tract. If you suffer from a GI disorder like inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s, or ulcerative colitis, you may notice fewer episodes and less severe symptoms with regular marijuana use. 

3. Reduced Stress

Stress can manifest itself in uncomfortable and even downright harmful ways. From headaches and fatigue to stomachaches and insomnia, there’s no shortage of physical symptoms prompted by stress. 

If you’ve ever partaken in 420 treats, it probably comes as no surprise that using cannabis can promote relaxation. In recent years, scientists decided to take a more clinical look at this phenomenon and found marijuana contains compounds similar to endocannabinoids, which are produced naturally in the brain. 

Chronic stress reduces the production of endocannabinoids, resulting in depression-like symptoms. The chemical counterparts found in marijuana restore the balance of this compound, stabilizing moods and preventing anxious spirals in the process. 

If you’re seeking relaxation, tell the budtender as much at your Boulder dispensary. Different cannabis products have different effects, and you want to make sure you pick out formulas that slow your thoughts down, rather than speed them up.    

4. Lower Blood Pressure

Those with hypertension will be happy to learn that taking a single dose of cannabidiol can lower their blood pressure. In fact, although more research needs to be done, preclinical studies indicate there are several cardiovascular benefits of CBD. 

That means if you’re concerned about heart health, incorporating cannabis into your regimen could be the extra push your body needs to thrive.
