The Benefits of Cannabinoids with Carolina Vazquez Mitchell
There are a lot of misconceptions behind Cannabinoids. Most people associate them only with recreational use, putting them on the same level as other more dangerous and addictive drugs. Whereas some consumers use cannabinoids just for fun, this is far beyond the spectrum of their use and benefits. Recent scientific studies indicated that Cannabinoids are highly beneficial for our health. Not only can they help with insomnia, anxiety, and pain, but they can also be very helpful in helping people reduce the cravings for certain drug addictions, like, for instance, opioids, painkillers, and nicotine. While these are all highly addictive drugs, Cannabinoids don’t create a dependency in the brain, so people have the power to use them and stop as their own judgment.
