This is a quote which I believe to be important : “ Consider cannabis as drug with some psychoactive properties rather than as an intoxicant with some therapeutic properties”. I prefer to consider Cannabis as a medicinal adaptogen or balancing herb. Adaptogens help our bodies adapt to environmental influences that effect health. The phytochemicals in plants serve purposes for the plant which we also can use for our purposes. Plants produce these chemicals to improve their chances for survival and reproduction. A plant’s quantity and quality of these phytochemicals (secondary metabolites) effected by the nourishment it receives from light, water, growing medium and perhaps the intention of the growers.
