Medicinal Cannabis, derived from the cannabis plant (known as marijuana), serves as a remedy for specific medical conditions by alleviating their symptoms.
The cannabis plant comprises around 80 to 100 cannabinoids, among which two are prominent:
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC): This cannabinoid is responsible for the psychoactive effects that cause a “high” in individuals.
- Cannabidiol (CBD): Unlike THC, CBD does not induce intoxication and is effective in treating many symptoms.
Most medicinal cannabis products available in the market contain varying levels of THC and/or CBD.
Furthermore, ongoing international research is exploring the potential benefits of several other cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant.
