What are the benefits of Phytocannabinoids?

What therapeutic benefit might Phytocannabinoids offer?

In parallel with expanding understanding of the ECS, the potential physiological impacts and possible therapeutic actions of phytocannabinoids continue to emerge. A growing body of scientific research suggests that phytocannabinoids can reduce anxiety and improve the quality of sleep, and that they may have anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, and analgesic properties. Research investigating potential pain-relieving properties of phytocannabinoids and related phytomolecules is ongoing 1, as are studies on the efficacy and safety of cannabis for a wide range of conditions including inflammatory bowel disease, Parkinson’s disease and a variety of mood disorders 2.
