Medical Cannabis

What is Medical Cannabis

Medical Cannabis is a medicine that is derived from the cannabis plant, which contains cannabinoids, most commonly THC and CBD, that can be used therapeutically to address and alleviate chronic health symptoms.

Physiological and psychological chronic ill-health symptoms may be supported by medical cannabis, including  pain, insomnia, anxiety and PTSD, and inflammatory issues.
