An introduction to medical cannabis
There are two main cannabis chemicals known to be leading components with the most medical benefit; THC and CBD.
The balance between THC and CBD is one of the most crucial factors in understanding which specific effects will be seen in a particular cannabis variety. We know both CBD and THC have medical properties and that the whole plant has a better effect than individual components.
