From time immemorial, humanity has used the multiple properties of cannabis for clothing, health care, food, and the production of many foodstuffs used in sectors as diverse as construction and retail.
But beyond its valuable resources for humanity, cannabis is also a precious ally in our time’s severe ecological crisis. Here are a few examples.
Cannabis helps forests generate oxygen and reduce global warming.
The growing needs of humanity for the products resulting from logging have led to endemic deforestation responsible for many ecological disasters. A simple solution exists. However, cannabis can easily be used as a substitute for most of the elements produced by woodworking.
By preserving the planet’s ecosystem, the cycle of flora and fauna is not only protected from the harmful effects of human activity, but the forests thus continue to produce oxygen, thus combating global warming. Another example is the natural biodegradable cannabis-based plastic that significantly reduces our ecological footprint.
Cannabis to help fight starvation in the world.
Cannabis seeds contain amino acids and fatty acids essential for the proper functioning of the human body. It is the plant source with the most edible variants for the digestive system and the adequate fatty acid ratio for our nutritional needs.
Unfortunately, its lousy reputation prevents its massive use, which would be very useful in regions of the world affected by famine.
Cannabis as a natural medicine
The demonization surrounding the use of cannabis as natural medicine has finally retreated in the face of the considerable amount of scientific research conducted on the subject in recent years.
One of the most convincing examples is the set of studies carried out on CBD Oil. This non-psychoactive substance of cannabis (which does not provide the plant’s recreational effects) can be used as a supplement in the treatment of many diseases and other afflictions (arthritis, rheumatism, cancer, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, etc…).
Easy to produce, economical, and ecological, it represents a perfect substitute for the heavy medication of certain toxic pharmaceutical products such as painkillers and tranquilizers that every year leads thousands of people to fight against forms of dependence with sometimes tragic outcomes.
Cannabis contributes to the rehabilitation of contaminated soils.
One aspect of cannabis’s properties that is still little known is its contribution to the rehabilitation of areas contaminated by heavy metals or sewage residues. An instructive example took place at the end of the 1990s when cannabis was tested at the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site.
Here is a plant that adapts to most climates on our planet. Most of its non-polluting and perfectly biodegradable products are palliatives to a wide range of contemporary industrial equivalents. A plant that could help humanity in what may well represent the greatest challenge of its existence, the fight against excessive pollution and the resulting climate change.
