What are the active ingredients in Medical Marijuana?

The two main components of marijuana are: Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD).

THC – Produces the psychoactive effects of marijuana. It also has analgesic, anti-nausea, appetite stimulant and anti-spastic effects.

CBD – Does not produce psychoactive effects. It has neuroprotective, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic and anti-psychotic properties.

How does Medical Marijuana work?

The active ingredients in cannabis act on specific targets found in the body known as cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are located throughout the body and are involved in the regulation of many functions including: brain and nervous system activity, heart rate and blood pressure, digestion, inflammation, immune system activity, perception of pain, reproduction, wake/sleep cycle, regulation of stress and emotional state as well as many other functions.
