What is Medicinal Cannabis:

Medicinal cannabis refers to the use of pharmaceutical products (or
medicines) using the cannabis plant or chemicals contained within it to

THC is a psychotropic cannabinoid compound known for its analgesic, antiemetic, antispasmodic, and psychotropic effects. CBD is a non-psychotropic compound known for its anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antianxiety, and sedation
effects. Conditions medicinal cannabis & CBD oil may be beneficial for
