Homeopathy Tips for 9/06/16 Cannabis Indica

Hardly a day goes by without some news about Cannabis Indica. It seems after so many decades of underground recreational usage that the conversation about Cannabis is now mainstream in America. Many States are voting to legalize marijuana and with this there are dispensary stores popping up in nearly every town in those states. Some states have legalized marijuana for medicinal use only (20 States). Others have legalized the recreational usage also. A Federal Court in California has recently ruled that marijuana is still a schedule 1 drug  along with heroin and a controlled substance.

With so much happening around Cannabis Indica there will be more and more cases including the proving symptoms of Cannabis. As new users of marijuana experience the psycho activity of the drug, and due to their susceptibility, we will see more cases of Cannabis Indica based on the mental/emotional symptoms.

There has been a whole industry created around the beneficial effects of Cannabis Indica. The medical uses of Cannabidiol (CBD), an extract of the Cannabis plant without the psychoactive THC component, are increasing as more and more as users report beneficial effects. Some positive results are being found for Cancer patients easing the ill effects of chemotherapy, analgesic effects by binding the CB-1 receptors.

Epileptic seizures have diminished or stopped for some patients. Autism symptoms have been helped also.

Cannabis Indica is not a new medicine in homeopathy. Many of the provings have revealed much on the mental delusions, nervous system and genito-urinary symptoms.
