Hemp, CBD, and Health
- Taylor Potter
According to the World Health Organization, health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. It can be a goal for every individual, and can be promoted by avoiding and reducing unhealthy behaviors and situations. While some aspects of health are genetic, others are caused by structural factors. However, in every nation, there is some underlying pattern that should be addressed to promote health. In this article, we’ll look at some of the factors that affect health.
What is health? A common misconception about health is that it is the absence of disease. The medical model of health views health as a state of being free of disease, while the biopsychosocial approach integrates the social, psychological, and biological elements of health. The World Healthcare Organisation says that ‘health is a state of complete wellbeing.’ While this definition may be ambitious, it is the most important goal to strive for in healthcare. A healthy population is a society that is free of chronic illnesses, disability, or any other condition that interferes with one’s ability to work or perform at a high level of productivity.
Cannabis sativa, which includes marijuana and hemp, contains both THC and CBD. While marijuana has the highest THC content, hemp has a lower THC content. The seed of the hemp plant is extracted and used in beauty products. The oil is packed with healthy fats, making it an ideal ingredient for moisturizing beauty products. While it’s still illegal in the United States, it’s becoming increasingly popular for a variety of purposes.
