On May 15th, Femme Nuri hosted the seminar “Improving Women’s Health with Cannabis at the McMillan Event Center in San Diego. The unique event offered guests and sponsors the chance to network and connect with other cannabis patients and professionals. It did not have booths with vendors distributing free joints or a dab station tucked in the corner, but it instead was completely consumption-free, focusing instead on educating attendees – both men and women – about the opportunities in cannabis.
The Cannabis Cleanse
The first featured speakers at the event were Kristen Williams and Kira Gresoski, co-authors of The Cannabis Cleanse. The Cannabis Cleanse is a free ebook download that educates their readers on the benefits of cannabis and guides them in discovering the best and most healthy way to incorporate it into their own personal lifestyle. During their presentation, they discussed six key ways that you can improve your health with cannabis.
1. Preventative Wellness
Our endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in balancing all of the other systems within our bodies, including the immune, circulatory, digestive, and nervous systems. The endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors embedded all over our bodies – and those receptors are designed to receive cannabinoids, a compound found naturally both within our bodies and in the cannabis plant. Essentially, cannabinoids allow the body to communicate more efficiently with itself, allowing it to work better.
Giving yourself a daily cannabinoid boost can act as a preventative medicine, helping keep your body functioning at its optimum capacity. But since everyone has a unique chemical makeup, the best dose of cannabinoids will vary from person to person. You’ll want to experiment to find an appropriate dosage and method of consumption that gives you that extra boost without over-stimulating your endocannabinoid receptors.
2. Weight Management
On the other hand, cannabis can improve functions such as digestion, helping your body better process food. Not to mention that cannabis consumption methods such as vaping or smoking have zero calories, unlike alcoholic beverages which can have anywhere between 100 and 2,000 calories.
3. Improve Exercise
4. Provide Essential Nutrients
Cannabis is classified as a vegetable, and its leaves, seeds, and flowers are all incredibly nutritious. Packed with omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids as well as antioxidants, protein, and cannabinoids, cannabis is a wonderful addition to any diet.
You can juice it, add it to salads, or sprinkle it on a dish just like you would with any other herb. Note that when eaten raw, cannabis will not get you high.
5. Generate Creative Thoughts and Associations
6. Rejuvenation Time
Cannabis can provide you with the mental space necessary to step back from your hectic day long enough to relax and enjoy yourself.
