Medical Marijuana

Currently, the two main cannabinoids from the marijuana plant that are of medical interest are THC and CBD. THC increases appetite and reduces nausea. The FDA-approved THC-based medications are used for these purposes. THC may also decrease pain inflammation, and muscle control problems. CBD is a cannabinoid that does not affect the mind or behavior. It may be useful in reducing pain inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, possibly even treating mental illness and addictions. Researchers are continuing to explore the possible uses of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids for medical treatment.
