WHAT IS MEDICAL MARIJUANA?

According to DrugAbuse.gov, Medical Marijuana is, "the use of the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions." It is also important to note that The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine as it is still Federally illegal. With that being said, scientific studies have shown that the chemicals in marijuana, known as cannabinoids, are effective at helping patients with a wide range of medical issues.

WHAT IS TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL (THC)?

THC is the chemical compound that is found in cannabis that creates the psychoactive, euphoric "high". THC is classified as a cannabinoid, which is a chemical compound found in cannabis plants that create reactions with the receptors in your brain and body, producing various effects depending on the type of strainyou are using. There are over 100 different types of cannabinoids with each of the various plant strains having the potential to have dozens of various types. THC is the most well known because it is the cannabinoid that produces the euphoric effects that cannabis has become famous for causing. Some highs that are elicited due to THC can create calming and peaceful feelings while others may cause anxiety. Our various body chemistries play an important role in how we respond to THC and the type of reactions that we have to it. It is important to consult your physician about your experiences when using Medical Marijuana to ensure that there are no adverse side effects.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THC AND CBD

The primary difference between THC and CBD are their perceived effects. While CBD lacks the euphoric effects of THC, which also activates the CB1 receptors in our brain, it maintains the effects of helping to alleviate pain, inflammation, and anxiety as well as other medical benefits. CBD is a great option for people in Oklahoma who are looking to receive the benefits of marijuana without the psychoactive effects that it may elicit. Both still interact with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies that regulate functions such as memory, immune response, pain, appetite, and more.
