Kiss Under a Cannabis Plant

It may be a better choice than Mistletoe

This time of year, couples everywhere are on the lookout for opportunities to kiss under the mistletoe. According to some accounts, Celtic druids in the first century A.D. believed that, because the mistletoe could blossom even in the dead of winter, it must have held powerful properties that would increase fertility when administered to humans and animals. Of course, modern science has found no evidence that ingesting mistletoe has any impact other than to cause extreme gastrointestinal distress. (Perhaps that should not be too surprising from a plant that means “dung-on-a-twig” in Old English.)

Couples looking to receive a blessing from kissing under a plant may have better luck if they kiss under a cannabis plant. Cannabinoids, a naturally occurring compound found within cannabis plants, are known to have a direct impact on the intricate network that controls both male and female reproduction. Various cannabinoids, through their interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS for short) will have varying effects, but research suggests that a specific cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), may be the cannabinoid that inspires the ECS to help women conceive and better cope with pregnancy and delivery due to its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. In men, CBD may inspire the ECS to help sperm fertilize an egg.

Beyond potential positive impacts to human fertility, research continues to suggest that CBD’s interaction with the ECS may give the ECS the boost it needs to provide other benefits, including everything from reducing anxiety and pain to fighting acne and sleep disorder, and more. While investigations into CBD continue, it seems clear that its use and supplementation of the ECS will prove more effective than kissing under a mistletoe. This holiday season, hang a sprig of cannabis.
