Medical cannabis - also known as medical marijuana - refers to derivatives of the Cannabis sativa plant that are prescribed for medicinal use in certain countries. THC (delta-9 – tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are two cannabinoids that are of particular importance.
THC is the compound that can make one “high” or “stoned”. It is also very effective at reducing nausea and increasing appetite. CBD is the compound that provides most of the medical benefits of marijuana.
Medical cannabis is rarely given to those who are trying to conceive, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Learn more in this multiswipe.
