Medical Marijuana is the unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extract to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions, though not FDA-approved for its medicinal use. Several scientific studies of the chemical components it contains called cannabinoids have led to two FDA-approved medications in a pill form.
Some studies have suggested that medical marijuana legalization might lead to a decreased prescription of opioid use and overdose. Currently, the two main cannabinoids, THC and CBD, have been known to have medicinal uses. THC is used as an appetite stimulant, reduces nausea, pain, and inflammation as well as improves muscle control problems. CBD does not make people high and has been found useful in reducing pain inflammation, seizure, and mental illness. FDA-approved CBD-based liquid, Epidiolex, is used for childhood epilepsy and Dravet syndrome. Further research is being funded by NIH to explore THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids for medical treatment.
