Medicinal cannabis is any cannabis derived product which is prescribed by a doctor to treat a medical condition. Medicinal cannabis products include pharmaceutical cannabis preparations such as oils, tinctures, dosed capsules, and other extracts; as well as untreated cannabis, such as raw and dried cannabis flower.
How does medicinal cannabis work?
Medicinal cannabis works when cannabinoids interact with our bodies through a biological system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is involved in many physiological functions including pain, inflammation, sleep, memory, digestion, immune function, neuroprotection, and more.
