The Benefits of Cannabis

Cannabis has amazing effects on the human body. Whether its woven into the secrets of ancient cultures or studied by modern medicine, cannabis provides healing and restoration to many. There’s no denying that cannabis helps our bodies function in a variety of different ways. Learn more about how cannabis helps the body with common aches, pains and ailments.

Cannabis for Inflammation

Inflammation makes different parts of the body swell with pain, heat or redness. It is often a response when the body is trying to fight off something it can’t recognize. Many feel inflammation in their joints, but you can also feel inflammation in your organs. To find wellness, everyone should identify and address their sources of inflammation with their doctor.

Cannabis for Pain Relief

Pain can plague your day in chronic or temporary ways. Cannabis reduces pain in many areas of the body, including chronic pain that you might have felt for years. Cannabis helps you manage:

  • nerve pain
  • pain from cancer
  • arthritis
  • inflammation

So you can focus on living the life you want. Over time, cannabinoids enable the body to feel stronger against chronic pain.

Cannabis eases aches and reduces muscle soreness felt by everyday people ranging from athletes to senior citizens. Since the endocannabinoid system is located throughout the body, cannabis efficiently targets receptors in many parts of the body. Lotions, creams, and salves containing THC and/or CBD provide topical relief that people can carry on-the-go or apply at home.

Cannabis for Anxiety and Emotional Distress

Cannabis helps people with anxiety, depression, and PTSD manage their day to day. It helps the body temper responses to mental and emotional triggers that cause or have caused traumatic stress. While PTSD can occur as a result of many different experiences, it is especially prominent within communities of veterans, first responders and survivors of abuse.

Cannabis for Seizures

Using cannabis to reduce seizures is a method strongly supported by many testimonies and medical trials. Medical marijuana can drastically change the lives of people with epilepsy and other seizure disorders.

As cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system, the brain gains better control of the seizure signals. With greater control of these neurological processes, people who suffer from seizures can experience improved motor function and fewer seizures overall.

Cannabis for Glaucoma

Cannabis helps lower pressure in the eyes which makes it a great therapeutic choice for people with glaucoma. While studies show that it only has the ability to lower eye pressure for a few hours at a time, there is hope that cannabis will lead to a long-term solution that provides comfort for longer. Until then, cannabis remains a legitimate option for glaucoma patients who want to reduce the pressure and minimize the damage of the optic nerve.

Cannabis for Opioid Rehabilitation

“In many states across the U.S., opioid addiction has decreased with the legalization of medical cannabis.”

The impact of the opioid crisis affects thousands of people every day. In many states across the U.S., opioid addiction has decreased with the legalization of medical cannabis. Cannabis helps the opioid-dependent wean off of dangerous pharmaceuticals while supporting pain management and withdrawal. It can help with the emotional toll of beating addiction by improving rehabilitating patients’ quality of life and making detox more physically tolerable.

Cannabis for Sleep

One of the most well-known benefits of cannabis is its ability to aid sleep. Though not all strains make you tired, many people use cannabis to help them get more restful and restorative sleep. People who use cannabis for insomnia value its ability to ease their minds and promote physical relaxation. Whether fighting racing thoughts or aching pain, the body gets a chance to reset as cannabinoids to prepare you for a full day ahead.

The Future of Cannabis

The future of cannabis relies on empowering the people who can benefit from it the most. This includes people with cancer, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and more. As we incorporate cannabis into our lifestyles, we can promote its power and the research that will continue to show how life-changing it can be.

Absolutely a great dispensary. Team is always ready with a smile and patient to a fault with MMUR questions. This dispensary goes above and beyond in customer service and is always open to any issues you might have before or after product purchase. ...Between the rewards points you accumulate and the regular sales they have across all product lines, you will not go broke or sacrifice quality. ...Surterra should be a regular stop. And the Coral Reefer line is AMAZING!

Surterra is, by far, the best dispensary out of the 5 in my neighborhood. I need a high THC for pain relief, etc. and Surterra generally has some 30%+.  Their discounts and rewards program are the best in the area.  The budtenders and support staff are awesome.

The customer service and products I received are top notch. As a new patient they've taken the time to answer all my questions and ensure that I completely understand, not just make the sale and rush me out the door like other places. The daily sales and special discount offers make things very affordable...the attention I receive from the customer service reps will keep me coming back.

This is my absolute favorite dispensary. Daily deals, amazing customer service, and phenomenal products. Surterra has been coming out swinging with the recent new flower strains! They are by far the most efficient/fastest dispensary I've ever been to. 12/10, highly recommend.
