What Is Medical Marijuana?

Medical marijuana refers to the regulated use of the cannabis plant for medicinal purposes. Marijuana contains chemicals referred to as cannabinoids that act much like some of the chemicals naturally found in your body that help regulate appetite, pain, anxiety, and memory. 


When used for medicinal purposes, these chemicals may help relieve some of the symptoms caused by your chronic health condition. 


The two most well-known cannabinoid chemicals include: 


• Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) 

• Cannabidiol (CBD) 


THC is the chemical in the marijuana plant that produces the high you may associate with its use. CBD doesn’t produce psychoactive effects like THC but is effective at treating chronic medical issues. 


In order to take part in the medical marijuana program in Florida, you must participate in the statewide medical marijuana registry. Dr. A&B Wellness is a provider for the medical marijuana registry.
