What is Medical Cannabis?

​​Medical Cannabis (also known as

Medical Marijuana) is the use of cannabinoids, the compounds from

the cannabis plant, for medical, as opposed to recreational benefit.

Medical benefits have been shown for pain relief, appetite stimulation, sleep, inflammation, muscle spasms, seizures, and many more disorders. This is not just due to the “psychoactive” components of the plant, but actually due to powerful biochemical effects throughout the body.
