How does medical marijuana help?
Medical marijuana is effective due to its use on the cannabinoid receptors in the body and brain. The human endocannabinoid system has receptor sites that bind a natural form of cannabidiol called Anandamide. Here, THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) and CBD bind to these receptor sites, giving positive health effects. Some researchers have called Anandamide the “bliss” chemical due to its positive effect on mood and sense of well-being. Relief of pain, anxiety, and many more positive effects can be felt by binding THC to the cannabinoid receptors throughout the body.

What is the difference between CBD and THC? And why can’t I just get my CBD at the health food store?

CBD contains only trace amounts of THC and lacks nearly any psychoactive effects. Therefore, CBD is often used to reduce any adverse effects of THC and can make the psychoactive properties of THC more tolerable.
