There are over 400 natural compounds found in the medical marijuana, 80 of which can only be found in Cannabis plants. Every medical cannabis patient should get know and love the word cannabinoid.

Cannabinoids (e.g., THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that provide relief to an array of symptoms including pain, nausea, anxiety, and inflammation. They work by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, which activate to maintain internal stability and health. To put a complex system simply, they mediate communication between cells, and when there is a deficiency or problem with our endocannabinoid system, unpleasant symptoms and physical complications occur.

Smoked Cannabis

Cannabis can be smoked in a pipe, bong or joint. When inhaled, CBD, THC and other compounds are absorbed by the lungs, into the blood, and cross the blood-brain barrier.

Cannabis Tea

Cannabis prepared as a tea will include significant amounts of CBD and THC in their non-psychoactive “acid” form. Cannabinoid acids have significant therapeutic properties, but little research has been done on these compounds.

Sublingual Sprays

Sublingual sprays are made from cannabis extracts that may be mixed with another substance like coconut oil. The cannabis concentrate is sprayed under the tongue and quickly absorbed through the oral mucosa.


Edibles are foods or snacks cooked with cannabis-infused oil, butter or ghee. The effects of orally consumed cannabis can last 4 to 6 hours—considerably longer than inhaled cannabis.


Vaporizing with a pen or other device offers the same immediate benefits of smoking without inhaling smoke. Since a vaporizer heats the cannabis flower or oil without burning it, the active ingredients are inhaled as a vapor.

Capsules & Gel Caps

Cannabis oil can also be taken in a capsule or gel cap like a vitamin or supplement. The effect, duration and dosing are similar to that of edibles.

Topical & Salves

Cannabis extracts can be infused in a balm, lotion or ointment and applied directly to the skin. Patients report that cannabis topicals are effective for pain, inflammation, infections, and skin conditions.


Tinctures are herbal remedies in which the active ingredients of cannabis are dissolved in alcohol or another solvent. Their effect, duration and dosing are similar to that of edibles.
