How does medical marijuana work?

Like other medications you take, prescription or over the counter, marijuana works similarly, causing your brain and nervous system to change the messages you receive. Some people have difficulty changing their perception of marijuana, from viewing it as a recreational drug to a therapeutic medicine, but the way it works is the same. Medical marijuana or medical cannabis contains cannabinoids. These cannabinoids are natural-acting substances that interact with cells in the brain and body (cannabinoid receptors) to alleviate debilitating symptoms associated with numerous medical conditions, improving quality of life.

The cannabinoid receptors exist in different parts of the brain and can be involved in several body and brain functions. This fact is significant for medicinal marijuana because it allows for different outcomes based partly on the delivery system. Where and how the THC reaches the brain determines what effects the patient feels.

Active ingredients in marijuana

The primary active chemical in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocabbabinol (THC). In addition to THC, the most well-known chemical component in marijuana, there are several other cannabinoids. Many of these chemicals were more recently discovered, and some are still being tested to find their specific functions and the best medical applications for them.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabavarin (THCV)

Cannabinol (CBN)

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, includes a psychoactive component, creating a “high” sensation.

CBD or Cannabidiol, does not contain any psychoactive properties. CBD has been shown to alleviate symptoms of epilepsy including seizures, relieve PTSD and assist in the management of pain associated with cancer.
