Medical Cannabis Active Ingredients:THC and CBD

Cannabinoids are the active chemical ingredients produced by the cannabis plant. More than 100 different cannabinoids have been identified, but research has focused on only two of them so far: delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

CBD has the potential to relieve pain, anxiety and inflammation. THC has anti-nausea/vomiting, anti-inflammatory and anti-pain effects.

Trichomes that grow on the outside of cannabis flowers contain the active ingredients in cannabis, including THC and CBD.
