7 Great Medicinal Herbs That Work Well With Cannabis

 

MEDICINAL HERBS

 

Cannabis should be part of every holistic wellness plan, alongside good sleep, exercise, and a nutritious diet. Improve your overall health by adding these herbs to your diet, which work fantastic and in fact even complement the health benefits of cannabis.

 

 


These herbs can be added into cannabis oil infusions, tinctures, teas, essential oils, and even edibles.

 

lavendar

  • Lavender is one of the most widely used and versatile herbs. Its scent is added into wellness, skincare, and household products because it offers a multitude of great benefits. The health benefits of lavender include anxiety and depression managementinsomnia, headaches, and pain relief. Lavender’s claim to fame though is its ability to send you into a state of deep relaxation, and even put you to sleep. However, cannabis and lavender also have something else in common: they’re both rich sources of linalool, a terpene with multiple health benefits. When linalool is combined with THC, it works effectively as a muscle relaxant. On the other hand when linalool is combined with CBD, it even strengthens the anti-convulsant properties of this cannabinoid. Make your own cannabis topics and add some lavender essential oil or dried lavender to increase the calming or pain-relieving properties of this magical herb. Lavender can also be mixed directly into edibles as well as tea.

 

Ashwagandha

  • Ashwagandha is a root that is best known for its ability to help individuals with their stress response, a feature known as adaptogenic. Ashwagandaha has long been used in eastern medicine, particularly the Ayurvedic system of wellness in India. Also referred to as Indian ginseng, Ashwagandha has a wide range of health benefits including the ability to lower blood sugar levels and reduce the risk for diabetes, prevent cancer, reduce levels of cortisol (the stress hormone),  reduce stress and anxiety, and address depression. Infertile men can also benefit from consuming ashwagandha since it has been shown to have positive effects on male reproductive health and increase testosterone levels.  If you’re looking for a potent stress-buster with other health benefits, look no further than mixing your favorite anti-stress strain with ashwagandha.

 

stjohnswart

  • St. John’s Wort has many medicinal properties, and is widely used in the wellness community in teas and infusions. Adding St. John’s Wort to a hemp or cannabis oil infusion will make an excellent natural topical that is soothing for burns. Another benefit that St. John’s Wort is widely known for its its efficacy in helping treat depression, especially those who suffer from extreme, debilitating cases. Mix it up with your favorite strain to combat depression and you’ve got one uplifting natural remedy in your hands.

 

rosemary

  • Rosemary, black pepper, and cannabis have one thing in common: a terpene known as beta-caryophyllene (BCP). This terpene, like others in the cannabis plant, has its own important medicinal properties one of which is the alleviation of anxiety and depression. Studies show that when BCP is combined with CBD, it may also be a useful way to help an individual get over an addiction.  To maximize the benefits of this terpene, add as much rosemary or black pepper into your infusions. On its own, rosemary also has significant medical benefits including boosting memory, improves mood and concentration, and also boosts the immune system naturally.  

 

holy basil

  • Holy Basil is another powerful known natural stress reliever when applied topically. Holy Basil reduces cortisol levels, so if you want another option for a potent stress-busting tonic, look no further than Holy Basil. This plant is native to Southeast Asia and has been used in Indian medicines to treat a number of conditions including stomach problems, insect bites, and even diabetes.

 

 

These plants and herbs contain equally powerful biochemical that can strengthen your immune system, help ward off infections, reduce inflammation and provide relief from pain. Feel free to use them liberally in your cannabis concoctions at home, but consult a medical professional first if you are already diagnosed with a specific condition.
