Read our Marijuana Review

Marijuana comes from the hemp of the plant Cannbis sativa and has the active ingredient THC that makes you feel high. It has been used both recreationally or as a medicine to treat various conditions. Since the early 20th century, Marijuana has been subjected to legal restrictions and is currently illegal in most countries of the world. However, medical marijuana refers to the physician-recommended use of it which is being practiced in Canada, Belgium, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and in 23 U.S. States. Medically speaking, Marijuana has been used to reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy , to improve appetite in people with HIV/AIDS, to treat chronic pain, and to help with muscle spasms. However, there have been concerns about Marijuana's potential to make the user dependent and adverse health effects especially for long term treatment.

Valeriana officinalis is a plant that is primarily used to soothe anxiety and makes people go to sleep easier. Traditionally, the roots of the Valeriana officinalis are brewed for tea or eaten to remote sedation and relaxation. Moreover, Valeriana officinalis serves to enhance the signaling of GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid, one of the main sedative neurotransmitters in the brain. However, further researches and clinical studies should still be conducted regarding Valeriana officinalis and its more potential benefits to the human health.
