A few words about marijuana
Marijuana, called cannabis in its vehicular name, is a plant that contains active ingredients called cannabinoids. They act on the body by attaching themselves to cellular receptors. Here are the two main assets.
1. Le CBD
CBD or tetrahydrocannabinol is another substance that has therapeutic properties. It acts on the immune system and helps fight many health problems. It also produces a pain-reliefing effect and creates a pleasant state of physical well-being (serenity, relaxation, relaxation, good quality sleep, etc.).
2. Le THC
THC or delta-g-tetrahydrocannabinol which causes a psychotropic effect. It acts on the nervous system and can influence the psychological and cognitive functions of the consumer. He’s the one who makes the marijuana smoker stone and makes him addicted. However, THC also has many medicinal properties, which are the subject of research in leading pharmaceutical companies.

3. The future of marijuana cultivation
The results of numerous researches on its benefits have led to the popularization of the use of cannabinoids for therapeutic purposes.
The French authority also authorizes cannabinoid-based medicines. This is the case with Dronabinol. On the other hand, the cultivation, possession and use of marijuana remain prohibited. THC also remains a prohibited product in France. In other countries such as Canada, the Netherlands and some U.S. federal states, the cultivation and use of raw marijuana is legal.
In view of the progress of research in this area and the activism of those who support its legalization, cultivating one’s own marijuana may be an interesting alternative. Provided, however, that its planting is used in the context of alternative medicine. With this in mind, you need cannabis seeds with carefully selected genetic materials to meet your specific needs.
4. Marijuana cultivation in France

This prohibition is mainly motivated by public health concerns (harmful effects of addiction) and public order (marijuana is considered a product promoting delinquency).
But regardless of its psychotropic influences, cannabis has a long list of beneficial effects. We can cite a few: stimulate appetite, prevent epileptic seizures, fight chronic pain, fight depression, reduce the progression of neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson and Alzheimer’s), soothe multiple sclerosis, alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy, etc.
