Cannabinoids could be a cornerstone of pain relief and healing with cannabis. They are a class of chemical compounds derived from hemp and cannabis that interact directly with the cannabinoid receptors found throughout the endocannabinoid system (“ECS”). The potential benefits of medical marijuana can be attributed to the phenomenon of cannabinoids activating the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and body. When CB1 and CB2 receptors are activated, we have the ability to improve how our body’s different systems and organs function.
Terpenes or terpenoids are aroma compounds produced in the flower and leaves of the cannabis plant. Understanding cannabis terpenes is key to navigating medical marijuana for beginners; they are as important as cannabinoids when it comes to therapeutic treatment with cannabis.
It’s a widely-held belief that we can no longer just consider the potency of THC and CBD in a strain. The concentration of terpenes has the potential to provide benefits as potency and cannabinoid content.
What are the potential benefits of microdosing cannabis?
Microdosing cannabis may be a beneficial way to achieve a relaxed, yet focused high. Consuming cannabis in smaller doses may help you avoid certain side effects like paranoia, anxiety or intense psychoactivity. Small doses of cannabis may provide a subtle, but profound form of healing and relief.
