Marijuana, and the plants it comes from, produce chemicals called cannabinoids, that happens to be currently used to treat a diverse variety of medical conditions. I was surprised to learn that our body also produces cannabinoid chemicals, and that they impact memory, thinking, concentration, cravings, pain, pleasure, and the five senses. It is not difficult to check out how cannabinoid chemicals from the marijuana plant could be very useful as medicine. One can find currently two main cannabinoids available in the marijuana plant that are being tested and utilised by the medical community. Chemicals most studied are called THC and CBD, and they have so many huge effects and advantages. THC accelerates appetite and reduces nausea, while also diminishing pain and soreness, and helping with body muscle issues. CBD is unusual in that it is a cannabinoid that doesn’t produce any intoxicating effect. It doesn’t make a person feel high. CBD also helps combat pain and inflammation, and further is beneficial in controlling epileptic seizures together with treating mental illness and addictive problems. The National Institute of Health is constantly completing research and pursue possible uses of THC and CBD for medical treatment. Animal studies have already shown that marijuana extracts help kill specific cancer cells and reduce the growth and increase of others. A study conducted on rodents indicated that extracts from the marijuana plant demonstrated a reduced growth of cancerous cells including those in brain tumors. Clinical trials with marijuana in addition to cannabinoids are progressing and hopefully resulting in a new respect for this natural chance for treatment. Medical marijuana provides a much less expensive option for patients, eliminates the harmful side effects, and is only beginning to be fully explored and appreciated.
