In the last fifty years, scientists have begun to uncover the complexities of cannabis. Thanks to this research, an understanding of the endocannabinoid system and its role in regulating functions such as appetite, mood, and pain response has been established. Through case studies and interviews with doctors prescribing cannabidiol products, a clearer picture is emerging of how medical marijuana can be used effectively in the management of various chronic conditions. Furthermore, exploration into phytocannabinoids and terpenes present in cannabis is ongoing; their medicinal use is likely to increase given current investigations into their effects on inflammation, anxiety and depression. It is also essential to note that CBD products derived from industrial hemp or in a lab differ from those made from medical marijuana; further studies will enable us to better distinguish between them for more effective therapeutic applications.
