Medical science and history show that Cannabis is an effective palliative, a class of medicines that ease human suffering. Natural and gentle, Cannabis is used to treat symptoms of many diseases and conditions, and some of the side effects1 of pharmaceutical drugs.
The science of medical Cannabis lags behind its use and more research is needed. Strong science supports the use of Cannabis as an analgesic painkiller, an anti-emetic for nausea and as an appetite stimulant. There is less scientific support for the use of Cannabis as an anti-inflammatory, despite significant anecdotal evidence. Scientists are also investigating whether it slows, or partially reverses certain diseases such as cancer.
The Cannabis plant is an annual, flowering herb, native to Asia and has been naturalized and cultivated worldwide. Cannabis may be one of the most recognized plants in the world due its distinctive leaf structure of serrate-edged leaflets radiating from the base. Traditionally, three major classes have been recognized:
- Cannabis Sativa are tall thin-leafed plants that originated in areas near the equator. They are known to produce a cerebral euphoria characterized by a sense of energy and alertness.
- Cannabis Indica are shorter bushier plants with larger leaves and grow at higher altitudes. They are commonly known to produce a strong “physical” euphoria manifesting in the body with analgesic and sedative effects.
- Cannabis Ruderalis also known as hemp, contains no THC and is commonly used for rope, paper and clothing.
- Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica can also be crossbred to produce what are known as Hybrids. Most of what medical marijuana patients experience today are going to be some ratio of a hybrid. We will classify these as either Sativa dominant or Indica dominant depending on their more prominent traits such as growth patterns and physical effects on the body.
