What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana uses the marijuana plant or chemicals in it to treat diseases or conditions. It’s basically the same product as recreational marijuana, but it’s taken for medical purposes.

The term “cannabinoids” refers to the hundreds of chemicals found in the cannabis plant; each chemical compound affects the body differently.

The main compounds found in cannabis plants are Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD); combinations of both these components are used in medication.

While THC has psychoactive properties and gives users a “high”, CBD doesn’t impact their ability to think clearly and make decisions. CBD doesn’t have psychoactive, sedative, or addictive properties; because of these unique characteristics, it’s the primary component of medical marijuana.

Can medical marijuana help with seizure disorders?

Medical marijuana received a lot of attention a few years ago when parents said that a special form of the drug helped control seizures in their children. The FDA recently approved Epidiolex, which is made from CBD, as a therapy for people with very severe or hard-to-treat seizures. In studies, some people had a dramatic drop in seizures after taking this drug.
