Marijuana has many cannabinoids, which are chemicals that lead to interactions with human blood that give marijuana its medicinal properties. One of these is THC, which produces the high feeling and can also help people deal with chronic pain and Alzheimer’s. CBD is another chemical that is similar to THC in that it helps you deal with chronic pain, but it doesn’t produce the sensation of feeling high. CBN also can help reduce pain, but also increases hunger for patients who might have stressful diseases like cancer treatments. CBG is only found in the beginnings of marijuana growth, but can be used as an antibiotic and an antidepressant, along with helping to deal with pain.
