South Africa’s Constitutional Court partially decriminalised the use of dagga earlier on Tuesday (18.09.18). The ban on private possession, consumption and cultivating of marijuana in your own home has been ruled as unconstitutional. And as can be expected, South Africans have been going wild with the jokes and memes on social media.
Several research reports and findings have indicated the benefits of the medicinal use of marijuana. This includes the relief of insomnia, spasticity, anxiety, and pain as well as treating, relieving or helping prevent conditions such as Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, to name a few. According to the Harvard Health journal, a highly promising area of research is its use for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in veterans returning from combat zones. Marijuana can also be used to manage nausea and weight loss.
If you’re not into smoking weed, you might want to give cannabis or canna oil a go, instead.
Here’s how to make the oil at home:
2 cups olive oil
28 grams marijuana
Grind the marijuana. Keep in mind that anything small enough to fit through the strainer will end up in your finished product, so you’ll want to remove any hard stems.
Heat the oil and marijuana together in a saucepan on LOW for 3 hours. Stir frequently.
Strain and store the oil.
Keep in a refrigerator or in a cool, dark place.
