Medical marijuana remains a big influence in the healthcare industry to treat cases that are not completely advisable with traditional medicines. Medical marijuana is just a normal marijuana plant that is processed to get the actual composition of cannabinoids, which is required to synthesize the product to be in use.

CBD is the main cannabinoid in use because of its zero-psychotic feeling as compared to others, but all the cannabionoids are generally calculated to form a specific medicine to treat disorders, which range from cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, nerve damage, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, PTSD, anxiety, and arthritis, among others.

The marijuana plant is of two types’ sativa and indica. The manufactures use any of the two to manufacture medicines, having different types of properties when exposed to the body. Medical marijuana is mostly found in two forms, dried and extract, which are synthesized from the dry leaves making it a more potent and vast option with many products manufactured using marijuana extract such as oil concentrate, tinctures, edibles, spray, and topical, among others.
