The cannabis plant is a truly Amazing. There are many parts of this plant that have medical value and the most medically active part of the cannabis plant is the cannabinoids. These cannabinoids help your body in many different ways. Today we are going to talk about just one cannabinoid specifically Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol better known as THC.
It is also the most well known of the cannabinoids. Most people know about THC because it is the active ingredient in cannabis that can get the user of cannabis HIGH. However getting the user high is not the only thing THC can do. For people like me the analgesic (pain relieving) effects of THC are the most important. However THC does more than relieving pain; THC can also be an anti-depressant, anti-spasmodic (relieves spasms), anti-emetic (relieves nausea), appetite stimulant, and has anti-oxidant.

The Cannabis plant is the most medically active plant on this planet and is safer to use than pharmaceuticals. Stay tuned for another cannabinoid lesson on another day.
