"This product works miracles on my auto immune disease, arthritis and chronic pain."
Renewed interest in the medicinal uses of the cannabis plant has revealed that it can be used safely, with little or no negative side effects, for a wide range of curative benefits. The plant contains a type of chemical compound called cannabinoids, which are also manufactured by the human body for a variety of purposes.These include movement control and coordination, regulating the metabolism, protecting the brain against the negative side effects of oxidation, boosting the immune system, and natural pain mediation. The controlled and guided use of cannabinoids therefore has the potential to help those suffering from a variety of illnesses to manage the side effects while helping the body to recover.
Though the cannabis plant produces over a hundred different types of cannabinoid, those most commonly known include Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA) and Cannabinol (CBN). Of these, THC is the most notorious, being the cannabinoid which induces the high achieved through smoking marijuana. But whereas recreational marijuana smokers usually want higher doses of THC for a stronger high, medicinal users are usually more interested in the non-psychoactive medicinal qualities of the other cannabinoids mentioned above. Below you can see a brief description of the four main cannabinoids and their effects on the human body.
CBD (Cannabidiol), is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, meaning it cannot make you “high”. CBD has very powerful medicinal and therapeutic effects on common and serious conditions. Research shows that CBD can be effective in treating patients suffering from the following conditions
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) has a psychoactive effect, but when used properly and in the right dosage, it becomes a great substitute for traditional medications with none of the side effects. It is widely used in medical treatment along with CBD oil which can counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The most popular uses of THC includes:
THCA (Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid) is a non-psychoactive ingredient of the cannabis plant. In its properties, it is closer to CBD than it is to THC. The benefits of THC-A are already showing remarkable anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and anti-emetic effects. It has proven effective in treating:
CBN (Cannabinol) is a mildly psychoactive compound. Its most common attribute is its sedative effect (similar to the pharmaceutical drug, Ddiazepam). CBN induces little to no psychoactive effects, which is why patients can usually use it without any of the psychotropic effects. Recent studies have shown its efficacy in treating:
