About Medicinal Cannabis

Medicinal Cannabis or Marijuana has become a very popular treatment modality for numerous chronic conditions and symptoms.  This is in major part due to a synergistic (chemicals that work better together) relationship with two major cabannoids within the plant, TCH (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). Your natural plant medicine can be titrated by your practitioner and dispensary pharmacist to treat your health condition, diminish and/or possibly alleviate your symptoms and promote healing without the “high” if that is what you choose.
