In recent years, medical cannabis has seen a surge in popularity as several states nationwide have relaxed their restrictions for its medical use. Medical marijuana is essentially the same product as recreational marijuana, but it’s taken for purely medical purposes.
The marijuana plant contains over 100 different chemicals, each causing a different effect on the body. Cannabidiol (CBD) and Delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the main chemicals used in medicine. THC is also what produces the “high” effect of both medical and recreational marijuana.
What is Medical Cannabis Used For?
Medical marijuana can be used to treat a number of different conditions, including epilepsy, glaucoma, cancer, and various mental health conditions. While not used to cure the condition itself, medical cannabis has shown to benefit patients by reducing chronic pain, nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, and stiff or tight muscles from conditions such as multiple sclerosis. The active chemicals found in marijuana, called cannabinoids, are similar to chemicals that the human body makes that are involved in memory, movement, appetite, and pain. This helps manage symptoms that many patients experience, helping them to cope more easily with their condition.
Studies on the complete effects of medical cannabis are ongoing. Some patients with very severe or difficult-to-treat seizures have seen dramatic improvements upon taking CBD as a therapy for their conditions.
