This is why Cannabis should be Legal Everywhere

Cannabis is a plant that belongs to the family of hemp plants. It can be used in many ways, be it as food, ornamental plant, drug, oil, or other. Cannabis plants contain over 400 active ingredients. Including around 60 cannabinoids, which influence a psychoactive effect and thereby our feelings and the psyche. Only female plants of the genus "Cannabis Sativa" produce the psychoactive substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which can cause intoxication. THC affects our feelings, perceptions and behavior, memory, mood, and consciousness. Depending on the hemp variety and the plant part used, the THC content may be lower or higher. However, he has grown a lot in recent years through breeding.

For the first time in the US, a drug has been approved; the active ingredient is obtained from the cannabis plant.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the first prescription drug containing an active ingredient in the cannabis plant. The drug Epidiolex of the British pharmaceutical manufacturer GW Pharmaceuticals may be prescribed for two rare forms of epilepsy. The syrup is expected to come on the market in the fall.
For the drug, an active ingredient in the hemp plant is used, which has no intoxicating effect. In studies of more than 500 patients suffering from severe convulsions, the effect of this cannabidiol, abbreviated to CBD, was investigated. According to the FDA, CBD contains less than 0.1 percent of the psychoactive substance THC.

Products with Cannabis you need to try
If you do sports and outdoor activities, sometimes your muscles are sore, your joints hurt or you have minor injuries, then you could apply THC / CBD-added lotions to the affected areas. There are numerous health benefits when cannabinoids are applied directly to the skin.

This product may be better for our female readers, who want to get a little tingling while taking care of their soft and beautiful lips. If the lips are very sore, for example when skiing or snowboarding in colder regions, a product like a medical lip balm would be great for both genders. Best of all, there is a sativa balm for the day and an indica balm to relax at night.

There's a New York-based company that developed cannabis-enriched toothpaste and mouthwash. These products not only cleanse the teeth, but scientists also incorporated the cannabinoid CBG into the toothpaste to use its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties. This compound is also known to be a bone stimulant and could potentially help with damaged teeth.

Who came up with the idea of using honey with cannabis? This guy should get some sort of award for his performance for humanity. Honey is a product that can be used in different possible contexts and is, therefore, most likely to be successful among the hundreds of different cannabis products that are already available.

The use of hemp as a beneficial and medicinal plant has a long tradition. For more than 12,000 years, the cannabis plant has been supplying humans with food, textile fibers, and medicines. Hardly any other plant has been cultivated so frequently in almost all cultures and at almost all times. Today cannabis is mainly perceived as an intoxicant. Hemp has been forgotten as an alternative and effective remedy for many diseases.

The aim of Weed Republic is to inform the community by providing the most comprehensive and practical information on the uses and benefits of medical cannabis currently available.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
