What Compounds Are in Medical Marijuana? | Discover Marijuana
In today’s video Tim and Blake talk about what chemicals are in medical marijuana. The chemicals, or cannabinoids, are what produce the medical benefits of cannabis.
Blake is going to walk us through what types of chemicals come from cannabis as well as some of the derivatives of those chemicals. The cannabinoids in marijuana are broken down into several other chemicals, each of which produces a different medical effect.
Tim, a QMP in Utah and founder of https://dev.utahmarijuana.org, often recommends CBD for beginners in the program as a way to ease into cannabis use. A product where CBD and THC are working together to maintain balance in the endocannabinoid system can be just the ticket for certain conditions.
Blake, Chief Scientific Officer of https://zionmedicinal.com, a Utah CBD and cannabis company, has dedicated much of his life to marijuana research and discovering how marijuana works due to personal motivation with his daughter’s seizure disorder. In addition to teaching us all about CBD and CBD dosage, watch as Blake touches on the specific cannabinoids that cause some of the benefits of marijuana, as well as marijuana side effects.
Tim will handle things from a provider standpoint. In his clinic, Utah Therapeutic Health Center, Tim has recommended Medical Marijuana to countless patients this year – remember that in Utah, marijuana has only recently been legalized for medical use. Tim will educate patients daily on how to use marijuana and what to expect when marijuana effects kick in.
