Medicinal marijuana's therapeutic effects have been known for centuries in scores of countries. However, unlike pharmaceutical drugs used in the western world, medicinal marijuana is not a single refined product with a scientifically documented treatment dosage and regiment. This makes some medical doctors uncomfortable and produces uncertainty in prescribing the correct strain and the correct dosage.
Medicinal marijuana comes from two types of plants, Indica and Sativa which produce over 70 active compounds. The two important compounds are THC and CBD which provide the bulk of the known therapeutic effect. This sounds like a simple exercise. However, there are literally thousands of medicinal marijuana strains to choose from which makes selecting a marijuana strain daunting for patients.
The percentage of THC and CBD varies with each different strain of marijuana grown. Your specific medical condition will respond differently depending on the ratio of THC/CBD contained in a strain. Therefore, it is very important to understand what levels of THC and CBD are in the strain for your condition.
