Cannabis and its derivatives have a profound effect on a wide range of behavioral and neural functions, from nutrition and metabolism to pain and cognition. Despite this, epidemiological studies show that the main reason for cannabis use is its ability to reduce stress and anxiety.
Cannabis from Ottawa edibles, which specializes in medical cannabis products. Also, the company previously announced its plan to enter the market of cannabis-based cosmetics.

Cannabis can prevent obesity
According to new research in blog, science & health, research. Researchers from the University of Calgary center for mental health addiction have published a study showing that cannabis can prevent and treat obesity. The study found that mice fed a high-fat diet and given daily drugs containing thc (the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant) gained less weight compared to those who did not consume thc. Researchers hypothesize that cannabis has a protective effect against high levels of gut bacteria that characterize obesity.
In the last decade, many studies have been conducted that have highlighted the important role that the endocannabinoid system has in the development of obesity. While it is commonly thought that smoking cannabis stimulates the appetite and therefore leads to weight gain, studies show that the effect of cannabis on body weight is complex and varies from person to person. A 2011 study from France found that cannabis consumers are less likely to suffer from excess weight.
How does cannabis affect body weight?
The researchers also tracked changes in the flora of the gut, that is, the bacteria that are naturally present in the digestive tract and play an important role in digestion, the immune system, and obesity. Although the gut of overweight mice had a higher proportion of bacteria from the firmicutes system compared to bacterioid bacteria. The study found that daily consumption of cannabis maintained the balance between bacterial rates and even prevented weight gain. The consumption of cannabis increased the proportion of akkermansia muciniphila bacteria only in mice fed a high-fat diet. This finding highlights the complexity of the active factors.
A question that remains open for discussion is whether cannabis use is the best way to target the endocannabinoid system. In fact, the authors of the report claim that by raising the level of anandamide in the brain and preventing its breakdown, there will be a better therapeutic alternative due to the negative effects that they claim cannabis has such as cognitive impairments and dependence.
Still, as long as there are no clinical trials on a drug that raises the level of an amide. It will take time until there will be some alternative to cannabis.
