Weed is also known as Marijuana, herb, pot, grass, and many other slang words. Besides, the term “cannabis” traditionally refers to psychotropic cannabis being widely used in medicine. “Hemp” is another word for cannabis plants. However, people often use this term to refer only to cannabis that is cultivated for non-drug consumption.
Belonging to the family Cannabaceae, it is a genus of flowering plants. It is widely accepted that cannabis is indigenous to Central Asia, while some researchers also include upper South Asia in its origin. People have long used cannabis for hemp fiber, hemp leaves, hemp seeds, and their oils.
Medicinal uses of marijuana
According to some reports, people have used cannabis for medicinal purposes for over 3,000 years. The plant was even mentioned in the Indian Vedas, but its integration into Western medicine took place only in 1839. It happened thanks to the surgeon O’Shaughnessy, who had been working in India for a long time. The use of marijuana for medical purposes can be justified by analgesic, sedative, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antispasmodic, anticonvulsant effects.
Cannabinoids provide pain relief through the supraspinal, spinal, and peripheral modes of action, and have almost the same effect on the descending and ascending pain pathways. Cannabinoids also promote pain relief by triggering an anti-inflammatory mechanism.
Anxiety and sleep
It is believed that the endocannabinoid system plays a central role in regulating mood and eliminating unpleasant memories, as well as modulating the sleep-wake cycle. Cannabidiol (CBD) has its slight inhibitory effect, it also calms and reduces anxiety.
Many studies prove that Delta-9 THC and other cannabinoids have a stimulating effect on appetite. Such a medicinal benefit of marijuana is especially useful for cancer patients after chemotherapy and/or with the development of cachexia (extreme weight loss) when there is no appetite at all, and the lack of nutrients further aggravates the severity of the patient’s condition.
Also, cannabis has a strong antiemetic effect. Another medical benefit of marijuana is the anti-tumor effect, which is insufficiently studied by scientists but is repeatedly proven in practice.

The issue of weight is as big as it's ever been. Throughout the world, there are many people who are struggling with this issue and are at a higher risk for many health problems. Some of these problems are only minor, like the common cold and achy knees and joints. Other health risks that overweight people are more susceptible to are very concerning, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
The road to weight loss is not an easy one. There will be times when you will simply want to give up.

Tesco Diets state that this recipe is sufficient for 4 servings for a "starter or light supper" however I don't think that 2 potato cakes would be sufficient even for a very light supper. They would be fine for a starter however.
I served the smoked salmon and potato cakes topped with some freshly chopped chives from the garden. If I had some dill in the garden I would have used that instead. The recipe might perhaps be improved by mixing these fresh herbs with some low-fat creme fraiche or yoghurt, however you can't avoid the fact that the potato cakes themselves are heavy and fairly soggy. I will try to amend the recipe in order to improve the potato cakes, however in the meanwhile I would just suggest eating smoked salmon with a squeeze of lemon!
