Whenever an Indian hears the word 'Bhang', he/she thinks of the mildly intoxicating substance. During one of the biggest festivals of Hindu religion 'Mahashivratri', Bhang is even offered as a religious offering to Lord Shiva while during the festival of Holi, it is being served as a milky and buttery drink. The intoxication caused by Bhang attracts many people but only a few people know about the other good things this traditional intoxicant can do.

'Bhang' or Cannabis or Marijuana is a substance that is widely known for its high medicinal value. For you, we bring five exceptional health benefits that balanced consumption of Bhang can give you. (Let me remind you that excess of everything is bad!)

Reduces Depression, Anxiety, and Stress

After drinking a cannabis tea or a big glass of bhang, your head might go round and round due to the mild intoxication, but this intoxication can make you forget the stress, depression or anxiety you might be facing in your life. The herb was discovered as a stress reliever at an early age and was used in Ayurvedic treatments of these mental issues.

Obesity has become a matter of concern these days. Many a time, the reason behind the constant weight gain is indigestion and other stomach and intestine related issues.
