Uses For Medical Marijuana


There is a lot of controversy surrounding the medical marijuana industry. At Pharm to Table, we are committed to combatting some of these negative stigmas. Scientists have long debated whether cannabis has actual medical benefits, but recent scientific studies and the testimonials of thousands of users are beginning to show some clear evidence for the medical benefits of its use.

 

How does it work?

The medicinal properties of marijuana typically come from one of two main sources: THC and CBD.

THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is a chemical found in marijuana that increases appetite and reduces nausea. THC may also decrease pain and inflammation, and help to control epileptic seizures and muscle spasms.

CBD or cannabidiol, the second main chemical in marijuana, has been found useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, and possibly even treating mental illness and addictions.
