The cannabinoids in marijuana help make the plant useful in so many different areas. From a medical standpoint, marijuana can provide relief or aid in symptoms to illnesses across the board. Looking back into the history of cannabis provides insight to plant cultivation. Even to this day there is speculation on whether cannabis can help against antibiotic resistance. The legalization of marijuana across the world could give way to an innumerable amount of research. Providing details on information that we have yet to discover. I just read an article on June 23rd, about how the White House is contemplating lifting restrictions on cannabis research. It is so easy to look back and see the many uses for cannabis in ancient Egypt, or across Asia, but it is even better to be able to verify it. For we all know people used to think that the Earth was flat.

Bacteria comes into contact with our bodies daily. From the food we eat to the things we touch. The immune system is in charge of fighting off unwanted visitors, and combating illness. That includes bacterial entry through cavities such as oral, anal, and genital. Preventative measures include washing our hands before engaging in activities, and wearing condoms. These actions provide some protection against diseases, and foreign invasions. The vagina even has its own special environment to protect against infections. Sometimes, this environment manifests too much bacteria, and infections can transpire. Yeast and urinary tract infections occur when too much of a specific bacteria builds up, and multiplies. Since the vagina is a wet, warm ,and dark cavity this is the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. Despite the fact that both of these infections are more common in women they can certainly occur in men as well.

A good sex routine includes washing prone areas before and after intercourse or sexual play. Lubricants infused with cannabis may provide an additional defense against infections. Some cannabinoids, like cannabichromene (CBC) are good at fighting off bacteria and fungus. The University of Mississippi published a study in 1981 that concludes that CBC yields strong antibacterial properties against bacteria like E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. In 2008, a different study published in the Journal of Natural Products, deduced that all five popular cannabinoids hold potential antibacterial properties. Studies like this could mean that cannabis infused lubricants may provide an extra defense against bacteria. Although some infused lubricants do not work well with latex. Making the condom an obsolete method of birth control or protection against sexually transmitted infections. Always make sure both partners consent, and please do not engage in sexually activities if you do not feel safe.
