Many of the edible products available on the market today are made with THC distillate or contain vague descriptions such as cannabis extract. At Sea to Sky Cannabis we create full spectrum oil infusions not just extracts allowing us to keep all the beneficial active cannabinoids, terpenes, plant oils and waxes. Single strains are slowly infused into virgin organic coconut oil over 48 hours. We always identify the strains used in our oils so you can be sure your getting the same product every time.
A study published in Molecular Psychiatry showed that treatment using marijuana may benefit those with PTSD, and that “plant-derived cannabinoids such as marijuana may possess benefits in individuals with PTSD by helping relieve haunting nightmares and other symptoms of PTSD.”
Research published on Science Daily also looked at symptom reduction in patients with PTSD. As a result of taking marijuana, participants reported a decrease in re-experiencing the trauma, less avoidance of situations that reminded them of the trauma, and a decline in hyper-arousal.
Research suggests that marijuana can have many beneficial effects on your sleep. Studies show that marijuana can help with insomnia, sleep apnea, and sleep issues related to PTSD and chronic pain. A 2013 study of healthy marijuana users found that they had less difficulty falling asleep, took less time to fall asleep and stayed asleep longer.
Marijuana is known to be an effective painkiller for many conditions. Studies have shown that marijuana can be used successfully in place of, or alongside opiates to treat pain. Evidence suggests that marijuana is an effective painkiller when it comes to chronic pain and neuropathic pain. Compounds in marijuana have both pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.
The Journal of American Medical Association published a 2015 study that found cannabis use for chronic pain and neuropathic pain is supported by “high-quality evidence.”
