Uses You've Never Considered

Cannabis is the quite possibly most controversial plant on our planet—half of the world is fighting to legalize it; the other half won’t budge. However, if we could all step back and recognize each other’s interests plus the vast potential of the cannabis plant there may be a great compromise. With that being said, let’s take the first step and look at some less known possibilities of this plant.

 

Fuel

That’s right - you could use marijuana for fueling your vehicle. Of course, you wouldn’t just throw it in the gas tank. It's a little more complicated than that.  The process is very similar to using plants, like corn for instance, in order to create bio-fuel. In fact, the University of Connecticut proves that you can power up your farm by using the fuel that hemp seeds produce. We think that’s pretty nifty.

 

Batteries

AlterNet reports that more and more researchers are determining that cannabis can actually lead to producing far more efficient, and effective, super capacitors. Even though the engineering itself is particularly complicated, the hemp is going to be highly advantageous mainly because it’s cheap and it costs thousands of times less than materials such as graphene.

 

Nutritional Supplements

What? Yep – you read it right, hemp in most cases, is quite healthy. It’s a prominent source of protein and other minerals when it’s a part of a diet which is properly balanced. There are many items which are going to properly bolster your performance such as hemp milk, hemp seeds, and even oil made out of hemp to cook with – these are all capable of helping you out considerably.

 

Weight Loss

Seems too good to be true right? Well it's no joke.  The key is within the strain you choose, and the amount of intake.  Studies say that people who use certain strains of cannabis 3 to 5 times a week are losing weight! Here's the break down of it.  Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use glucose (more commonly known as sugar) from the carbs in your everyday diet that provide energy, which in turn your body stores.  If it is working too slowly, or too quickly, your body takes it and turns in into weight gained.  Cannabis helps it to work at just the right speed in order to help you burn that weight instead of gain it.  Boom. Just like that.  

 

 

As you can see, cannabis has a strong variety of applications, and it isn't always about getting stoned. When you add the well-known fact that cannabis has extraordinary medicinal qualities, you are quickly going to find yourself with a solid portfolio of benefits. Of course, there are a plethora of other applications and uses but these ones are rather uncommon, as well as positive, and that’s why we wanted to share them in particular, with you!
