Marijuana enthusiasts have talked about the miraculous effects of their favorite plants for more than 12,000 years, but only now we begin to understand the true potential of their powers.
You may have accused these pot consumers of being fooled by the effects of smoking high quality buds a few years ago, but countries around the world are starting to abolish the drachian ban and allow researchers to finally investigate the plant – and what they discovered is incredible.
Talks on news.com .au after Sydney’s remarkable CannaTech conference in Sydney – where hundreds of contracted entrepreneurs wandered around to inspect the latest crop cultivation techniques – said Paul Benhaim, founder of Hemp Foods Australia, that the plant may contain superpowers that can have a profound impact on our lives.
Cannabis researchers who spoke at the conference argued that compounds present in the plant could potentially be used to treat a wide variety of anxiety from anxiety, depression, migraine and irritable bowel syndrome to acne and also schizophrenia ̵

However, you will not be magically cured from just smoking any leader this weekend.
Speakers made it clear that cannabis is extremely complex and extracts the exact components you need to prevent harmful side effects, much work is still under way.
Benhaim pointed to research that has emerged over the last two decades, showing that we all have something in the body called an endokannabinoid system.
This is our body’s way of processing and even creating custom cannabinoids – the chemical compounds found in the plant growth.
Working next to our circulatory system, the respiratory and digestive system, it claims that the endokannabinoid system can affect our appetite, pain modulation, digestion, reproduction, motor learning, stress and memory.
“This has only been discovered in recent decades and it is extremely important because it affects the balance and communication between our cells,” he said.
“It is hard-wired in our bodies because it is our balance sheet. The system is called homeostasis.
” This means that if any aspect of your health expires because of stress, your endocannabinoid system immediately responds by modifying your physiology in one try to restore homeostasis.
“It’s one of the most important systems for maintaining human health. It’s literally a bridge between your body and mind.”
He said people often confuse hemp and cannabis, but they are actually the same plant and parts of It like hemp seeds – which contains almost none of the intoxicating psychoactive property THC, which causes plant smokers to feel stoned – is extremely beneficial to human health.
“It’s actually a plant, cannabis a single plant and there are many different parts of the plant that you can use for many different uses” said.
“Considering the water content, your brain consists of 60 percent fatty acids – omega 3 and omega 6 and realized hemp seed was a big source of it.”
He claims that we need a constant supply of these fatty acids in our body.
But this protein-rich superfood, which can be used in more than 50,000 ways, uses from acne treatment to textiles, bioplastics, paper and fuel production – just became legal in Australia less than a year ago.  Australia was one of the only places in the world where it was forbidden.
However, Food Standards Australia, New Zealand (FSANZ), approved a proposal to allow the sale of low THC hemp seedlings last year and in April 2017, Australian Food Service Ministers considered the proposal.
At one point, a FSANZ spokesman told SBS: “Our risk assessment found that low-THC household products are safe for consumption and can provide a good alternative source of nutrients and polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially omega-3 fatty acids.”  Benhaim is now debating with Aussie pollies in an attempt to make them aware of our endokannabinoid system and the potential health benefits of allowing non-psychoactive weeds such as
“We know that the endokannabinoid system is active in embryonic stages of human development contains cannabinoids – but we are still told that it is not healthy or safe for you. “
When he tells this, he simply points to the evidence.
United Nations research shows that 180 million people use cannabis globally and only 72 of them died after taking it – in contrast to the widespread myth that no one has died because of weeds.
But during the same period, alcohol killed 3.3 million of us and tobacco killed 7 million people globally – almost twice the population in Sydney each year. And interesting researchers in Germany also found that the CBD reduces the alcoholic strength of our blood.
Synthetic cannabinoids produce frequent undesired side effects, as the Australian government always points out to say we should avoid this, “he said.
” But the only problems are caused because some chemical compounds can not yet be completely isolated . “
Benhaim added that there is a “very nice line” between recreational and medical use of cannabis if there is no harm.
“We are built for cannabis,” he said.
“People just need education, but we should not use it until we’re 21, which is when your endocannabinoid system and your brain are fully developed.”  Join the debate, follow @bengrahamjourno on Twitter
