Medical marijuana treatment: all you need to know
What is medical marijuana?
The term medical marijuana refers to using the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant (or its basic extracts) to treat certain conditions.
CBD (which stands for cannabidiol) is an extract found in hemp plants (a variety of the marijuana plant) which has very little, if any, intoxicating properties. Marijuana itself has more than 100 active components, including THC (which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the chemical that causes the “high” that goes along with marijuana consumption. CBD-dominant strains have little or no THC, so patients rarely communicate alteration in consciousness according to a medical marijuana doctor in Gainesville.
