Medical marijuana has come a long way from the two simple strains of indica and sativa. With the expanding application of medical cannabis for a wide array of ailments, so are the different ways you can take it and the different quantities. From edibles to oils to gummies and treats to tinctures and even the dry herb itself - it can be overwhelming to a new medical marijuana patient and even to a longtime user. Throw in the ratios and numbers now featured on most packaging and it can all seem like a lot to take in, but don’t worry.

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are the two most abundant compounds found in cannabis and thanks to the rapid legalization of medical marijuana, they are also the most talked about. Most are already familiar with THC and its benefits: it’s the ingredient that gets you “high” and can help with conditions like pain, low appetite, glaucoma, nausea and many more benefits. Thanks for the rapid acceptance of medical marijuana, in recent years CBD has made a name for itself as THC’s counterpart that can also help pain and nausea, as well as seizures, migraines and more - but without the feeling of getting high.
