How Medical Marijuana Works
It' Natural, It's Organic, It Works!
There are five major cannabinoids in medical marijuana that
are extremely effective for relieving symptoms of many diseases, and each
produces different physical and psychological effects. This is why medical
marijuana is bred to have different amounts of each cannabinoid and are
recommended for different conditions.
The Effect of THC
THC stands for delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol. It is the best
known cannabinoid in medical marijuana. Physically it acts as a muscle relaxant
and anti-inflammatory and psychologically it acts as a stimulant. This makes
medical marijuana strains high in THC the best option for patients who need
relief but also to stay alert and active.
THC acts in the following manners:
>> Anti-Epileptic >>
>> Lowers Blood Pressure >> Appetite Stimulant >> Self Induced Call Death (Apoptosis)
CBD and it's Effects
CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol reduces the
psychological effects of medical marijuana. A medical marijuana strain that has
high THC and high cannabidiol will have fewer mental effects and more physical
ones. High cannabidiol medical marijuana strainsare especially effective for
illnesses with strong physical symptoms.
Cannabidiol effects are but not limited to:
>> Reduces Nausea
>> Reduces Pain >>
Reduces Anxiety >> Sedative
>> Effectively Stop The Spread of Cancer
CBN and it's Effects
CBN is cannabinol which is very similar to THC, but has less
psychological effects. It is produced as THC and breaks down within the medical
marijuana plant. High THC will make cannabinol’s effects stronger, and high
cannabinol concentrations can produce undesirably strong head highs.
Cannabinol effects are but not limited to:
>> A Sedative >> An
CBC and it's Effects
CBC stands for cannabichromene. Cannabichromene’s main action
is to enhance the effects of THC. High cannabichromene levels will make a
high-THC medical marijuana strain much more potent.
Cannabichromene works together with THC is known to be:
>> A Sedative >> An
CBG and it's Effects
CBG stands for cannabigerol. Cannabigerol has no
psychological effects on its own, and is not found in high amounts in most
medical marijuana. Scientists believe that cannabigerol is actually one of the
oldest forms of cannabinoids and also has anti-microbial properties.
Cannabigerol has physical effect like:
>> A Sedative >>
Assist with Sleep Disorders >>
Reduces Eye Pressure
Alone, none of the five major cannabinoids are as effective
as when they work together. These five cannabinoids also work with the minor
compounds in marijuana, and this is probably one reason that medical marijuana
replacements like Marinol are not as effective.
Medical Marijuana growers can analyze strains to breed and
grow medication for patients with the desired range of levels of each major
cannabinoid. Using this knowledge of what each compound does helps medical
marijuana growers find the right combination for patients to treat specific
conditions and find maximum relief.
