Different compounds in marijuana have different actions in the human body. For example, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) seems to cause the "high" reported by marijuana users, and also can help relieve pain and nausea, reduce inflammation and can act as an antioxidant. Cannabidiol (CBD) can help treat seizures, can reduce anxiety and paranoia, and can counteract the "high" caused by THC.
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds that are found in cannabis, and often unique to the strain. They're the reason you may feel a psychoactive high or therapeutic pain relief after consuming cannabis.
Thanks to this understanding, products, and strains can be engineered to contain specific cannabinoids. This way, a particular effect can be achieved, whether anti-inflammation, reduced stress, euphoria or energized creativity.
Multiple studies have found that Cannabis can be helpful in the treatment of neuropathic pain, nausea and vomiting from cancer chemotherapy.
Patients who took marijuana extracts in clinical trials also tended to need less pain medicine.
Patients with pain caused by diabetes, cancer, MS, HIV, and other diseases have been turning to medical marijuana as a way to treat their pain without the use of addictive pharmaceutical medications for years.
