The cannabis plant offers over 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids and each one creates a variation in effects on the body. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the two most common, well-known, and used most often in medicine. THC is responsible for the “high” sensation people feel when consuming marijuana. CBD does not have mind-altering effects.
Medical Marijuana in the greater Eugene area
Marijuana has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. While the federal government still classifies it as illegal, more and more states are allowing medical marijuana for the treatment of specific health problems. Despite ever-increasing success stories, the FDA has yet to approve the plant as a treatment.
Cannabis can be smoked, infused into foods, vaporized or turned into a topical, tincture, pill and offers a growing variety of consumption methods. Along with preference, the different forms influence how quickly and powerfully effects are felt, how long they last, side effects and treatment of your symptoms.
