This year, smoke more pot as your New Year’s resolution. There are many little known health benefits to smoking pot that extend way beyond the “fun” factor.
Can Help With Weight Loss
Cannabis users have been shown to be slimmer, particularly in the midsection, than non-users. This is in large part thanks to cannabis’s ability to help the body regulate insulin production. According to studies, “smoking pot statistically correlated with lower body mass index (BMI), lower fat percentages, and lower fasting insulin levels”.
Can Help With Depression
This reason alone comes in very handy if you’re pledging to be more positive this year. From the University of Buffalo, “Using compounds derived from cannabis — marijuana — to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression.”
Can Help With Relaxation
Treat yourself to “Me Time” in 2017 with relaxation, serenity, and calm. Get there with a little help from cannabis. Find a strain like Strawberry Cough to quickly transport yourself to calmer waters in what might turn out to be a stressful 2017.
Can Help With Creativity
If you’re looking to paint more, write more, or simply to create more this year, then try your hand at enjoying more pot as a creative means to a blocked mind. Pot unleashes creative juices as it “promote(s) creativity as it increases frontal lobe activity”.
Can Help With Skin Conditions
Using a topical cannabis product can help improve skin conditions. Topical products are they are instead applied on top of the skin where the healing effects of weed are then soaked into the skin. Rubbing cannabis lotions/creams/oils onto skin directly helps to reduce inflammation – particularly beneficial to eczema sufferers where skin is easily inflamed by typical shelf products like fragrances, lotions, and body washes.
If you’re still looking for the perfect New Year’s resolution, then look no further than weed. With so many wonderful health benefits, cannabis products can be a one-stop-shop for many self-improvement goals. Goals like weight loss, stress relief, increased positivity, and more – just in time for a brand new year!
