Welcome to the Understanding Cannabinoid Series!

Cannabinoids are partially responsible for cannabis’ effects on the body. They are responsible for the psychoactive effects we feel and the anti-inflammatory effects that we don’t feel. Research is showing that cannabinoids can function as a tumor growth inhibitor. They can also help alleviate the effects of seizures or even limit the number of seizures a epilepsy patient may have. The National Cancer Institute has done its own research and is now advising that cannabis may even help with cancer treatments.
