The Effects Of Medicinal Cannabis
The cannabis plant contains over 100 cannabinoids and approximately 200 terpenes which have been utilised for their medicinal properties for centuries. Cannabinoids are a diverse group of compounds which act via humans’ own cannabis pathways (the endocannabinoid system). This system is responsible for promoting sleep, appetite, stress reduction and modulation of pain.
The most widely studied cannabinoids are THC and CBD. THC acts directly via the endocanabinoid system and may be effective for nausea and vomiting, pain relief and improving appetite. CBD mainly acts outside this system to produce proposed benefits in seizure management, pain relief and alleviating anxiety. Most medical cannabis preparations contain a combination of both THC and CBD to achieve benefits from both compounds.
