Frequently asked questions

What is medical marijuana?

This is not an easy question to answer. The scientific research into the medical benefits of cannabis sativa or cannabis indica is limited, though there some evidence suggesting it is an effective treatment for pediatric seizures. It has, therefore, not been approved by the Federal Drug Administration, though the FDA has approved anti-nausea drugs that contain chemicals derived from marijuana. However, research into its use in the treatment of many disorders is ongoing. Research focuses on how the cannabinoids, chemicals contained in marijuana, affect the body. There are more than 100 cannabinoids in marijuana; the mind-altering ingredient is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Another therapeutic cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), does not have psychotropic effects. The human body also produces cannabinoids.
