Medical Marijuana is a plant-based medicine with three active components: THC, CBD, and CBN. These substances are called cannabinoids, which has been used to treat a number of diseases such as pain, muscle spasms, multiple sclerosis, sleep problems, autism, epilepsy, chemotherapy, and more.
People have used marijuana also called cannabis for at least 3,000 years. At AccuDoc Urgent Care in Harrison, Ohio we provide patients that are in need and can benefit from the use of supplementing medical marijuana.
CBD or Cannabinoids
One of the major chemicals that are found in marijuana is known as CBD or Cannabinoids. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the components in marijuana that is not psychoactive, meaning it will not give you the “high” feeling. CBD is known to be responsible for the majority of the medical benefits.
One simple plant of marijuana contains 100 Cannabinoids.
Benefits of CBD
For those who have used CBD from the marijuana plant, it hasn’t shown to cause any harm or intoxicating in the human body instead it is recommended by doctors to reduce pain, inflammation, epileptic seizures, treatment of Schizophrenia, some other addictions, and more medical issues.
The FDA also approved CBD based medicine, which is highly used in the treatment of children’s epilepsy. Patients of the above mentioned problems should consider the use of CBD as supplement for the treatment of their medical problem.
Cannabis works effectively for the following severe problems like:
- Epileptic seizures
- Multiple Sclerosis
THC and CBN
The plant also has THC or tetrahydrocannabinolis this is the psychoactive compound in marijuana. It is responsible for the “high” people mention they can feel.
You can get the medical marijuana in just CBD form, which will not have the psychoactive compound. You can also get it with a combination of ratios of THC: CBD, the combined ratios have been shown to have better effects then one or the other.
CBN is another compound found but rarely exceeds 1% in dried flower; it is a mildly psychoactive compound. CBN doesn’t come directly from the marijuana plant.
Instead, it is formed from the exterior oxidation of THC. CBN has been shown to help with medical problems such as sleep disorders, and other medical problems like:
- Chronic Pain Relief
- Bone Formation & Healing
- Increasing Appetite
Depending on the patient needs and comfort level, there are different ratios for people’s medical problems.
At Accudoc Urgent Care in Ohio we diagnose what ratio’s of each component of the plant is best for your medical needs and comfort level.
Overall, many of the plants components overlap in benefits we have seen with patients and that medical research has shown through medical marijuana. Such major benefits of medical marijuana are the following:
