Benefits ? Depression is one of the more widespread, yet least talked about medical conditions in America. And research is showing that cannabis can help treat it.
Using compounds derived from cannabis marijuana to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression, said Samir Haj-Dahmane, who is spearheading the research at Buffalo University research that is only just now beginning to ramp up.
The cannabis plant can ease so much pain and suffering throughout the world, yet as it is considered an illegal drug in many countries research into the true potential of healing has not been fully developed.
Despite this, the use of cannabis for medicinal and therapeutic purposes has grown, mostly for the relief of symptoms and the side effects of certain illnesses.

CBD and Medical Cannabis Research
It is interesting to note that CBD actually works synergistically with the other cannabinoids in order to provide a more powerful therapy in what is known as the Entourage Effect (The interaction of various compounds in Cannabis). What this means is that each of the compounds contained within the plant (the cannabinoids and terpenoids) work harmoniously with each other to create synergistic therapeutic properties.

Cannabis and the Law
Cannabis legislation is being relaxed all over the world but not in the UK, where the most unlikely of horticulturalists are taking the law into their own hands At Discount Cannabis Seeds we only sell Cannabis Seeds as souvenirs and we do not accept any liability for customers purchasing them for any other purposes.
Is Cannabis legal?
Cannabis, unfortunately does not follow a strict line of being legal or illegal across the globe, and in fact can vary considerably in each country depending on its use and form.
Whilst it is illegal to own or possess the drug in the vast majority of countries around the world, many countries have in fact decriminalised possession in small quantities, with the reasoning that it isn’t being used to sell or supply.
In the UK, it is actually LEGAL to own cannabis seeds, such as the ones available on the Discount Cannabis Seeds website, but it is 100% ILLEGAL to grow or attempt to grow the cannabis plant from these seeds unless you have a licence from the Home Office.
WE STRICTLY ADVISE THAT PURCHASED CANNABIS SEEDS ARE NOT USED TO GROW CANNABIS PLANTS AS THIS PRACTICE IS ILLEGAL WITHOUT A LICENCE.
Is is well known, certain countries permit the possession of cannabis in certain circumstances, such as the Netherlands and Uruguay. More recently, a number of states in the USA have enacted legalisation of the plant.
We deal with the most reputable Seed Banks from around the world, many of which have their own quality control procedures which include testing the germination rates.
Legal Access to Cannabis in the UK
Access to cannabis within the UK is limited to the pharmaceutical cannabis based medicine Sativex.
Sativex is an oromucosal spray of a formulated extract of the Sativa cannabis plant that contains the principal cannabinoids THC and CBD as well as specific minor cannabinoids and other non-cannabinoid components.
This can only be prescribed to MS sufferers and is at your doctors discretion, so differing postcodes can effect access.
It should also be noted that although the NHS in Wales will subsidise Sativex, the NHS in England will not, so typical treatments can cost up to 500 a month.
All other cannabis use or production in the UK is Illegal.
