Marijuana or cannabis is a substance that has been used by humans for millennia and for various purposes. Even so, today there are many people who do not know the wonderful effects of marijuana, among them there is a great quantity, both medicinal and playful.
Why does marijuana produce different effects?
Before going on to enumerate and explain the effects produced by marijuana, let's go first with a bit of history.
Marijuana has been growing for a long time. For millennia this wonderful plant has spread throughout the world and acclimatized to each region where it was grown, producing what we call different phenotypic expressions. Each variety is susceptible to changes depending on where it has been cultivated, especially if the offspring are continued and the plants begin to adapt to the environment, which over time has led to different varieties of cannabis.
Cannabis has been cultivated for different reasons and each one of the towns that used it destined it to a specific use thus achieving almost unique deals in each region. However, since the global prohibition became effective with the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961 Many varieties of marijuana began to disappear and with them their unique effects. With this reform has been finished with the biological wealth that hid some of these varieties, however some pharmaceutical, seed banks and in some cannabis circles still retain that genetic material.
In this article we are going to explore a little the effects of marijuana. There are many people who have never consumed and who do not know what they are going to find. We will indicate the most suitable varieties for each effect, so that you can experience the effects yourself. Marijuana does not have the same effects on all people, but there is a general pattern of how marijuana works in most people, and that is where we are going to focus this article.
The marijuana can produce a wide variety of effects. This is because each effect corresponds to a specific chemical profile of cannabinoids (active marijuana ingredients) and terpenes (marijuana odors). Marijuana is a special substance. Terpenes and cannabinoids are found in their resin, so they share the same pathways to our neuroreceptors, producing a synergistic effect, this is a unique treatment of cannabis.
Now we will classify the effects according to their function, so that you can find the variety and information necessary to make an informed choice:

One of the most sought effects in marijuana is the relaxing effect. Normally the predominantly indica varieties are those that contain the most CBN. CBN is the substance that usually produces this relaxing effect, although there are also sativas and hybrids that produce this effect.

Effects of marijuana for medicinal purposes
Palliative effect in migraines
As for chronic headaches or migraines, there have not been enough studies with the necessary scientific rigor to support the use of marijuana against migraines, however, there is enough anecdotal evidence and other preliminary results that indicate that it can have a positive effect.
In 2016, a study was published that aimed to identify patterns among the data recorded in recent years, tracking 121 adults with migraines whose doctor recommended medical marijuana. In this study, it showed how the frequency of migraine attacks fell from an average of 10.4 to 4.6 per month. However, the varieties of marijuana used varied and we do not know much about how the doses were administered.

Palliative effect in menstrual pains
Menstrual pains are largely caused by hormones called prostaglandins. When the period comes, these hormones are released over the lining of the uterus, causing the uterus to contract. We also know that these hormones are also responsible for part of the inflammation that occurs in the uterus, something that makes the pain more acute.
Marijuana is very effective in controlling menstrual pain, however there is only one study explicitly dedicated to this topic.

Palliative effect against depression
Marijuana is widely used to combat depression. In 2007, a study was published that stated that marijuana in low doses in a powerful antidepressant, however its use in high amounts can make depression worse.
It must also be said here that it is advisable in some cases to substitute marijuana for standard medication for the treatment of chronic pain (opioid analgesics) and for the treatment of anxiety. Usually the continued use of opioid-type analgesics can cause depression and high physical addiction. Medications for anxiety usually generate more anxiety, so there comes a time when you can not live without having medication with you, which generates a great dependence.

Effects against appetite and nausea
Lack of appetite and nausea are a problem faced by many sufferers, especially in people who have been treated with chemotherapy and people with depression.
In the case of chemotherapy, 3 episodes are usually given:
1) Acute nausea that occurs after administration of chemotherapy
2) Emesis or nausea that arise or persist 24h after chemotherapy
3) Vomiting or anticipated nausea that occurs when the patient is re-exposed to toxin signals.
Cannabis combined with medications affects CB1 neuroreceptors by reducing nausea and vomiting in the first treatment between 70 – 90%.
Varieties that stimulate the appetite and avoid much of the nausea:
