Medical cannabis, THC and CBD briefly explained

Medical cannabis contains CBD and THC

In our society, cannabis is for many still an expression of the forbidden - a narcotic. In the meantime, however, its medicinal effect has been proven, mediated by the components tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). And this is used in medical treatment with medical cannabis (contains both active ingredients) from the pharmacy to alleviate various complaints: Chronic pain, depression, migraine, ADHD, sleep disorders and many other indications are among them.

Isolated CBD

In the case of isolated CBD, it is the main non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. Thus, unlike THC-containing medical cannabis, a drug containing extracted high-dose CBD is not mind-altering. It can therefore be used in a variety of supportive ways, e.g. for women with menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome or symptoms of menopause. In addition, sleep disorders, depression, anxiety disorders, pain and inflammatory diseases are known areas of application [1]. Another advantage: it can be taken in capsule form.

Which therapy is right for me?

THC or CBD?

Medical treatment with medical cannabis containing THC, as well as treatment with high-dose CBD, requires a prescription. Therefore, a thorough evaluation of the medical history and a physical examination are necessary for treatment with cannabinoids. We will be happy to assist you if you are unsure whether therapy with THC or CBD is an option for you. Make a treatment request, fill out the questionnaire and submit the necessary documents. Our team will then contact you with a non-binding initial assessment.

How is medical cannabis administered?

Medical cannabis can be inhaled or taken orally. The way it is taken depends, among other things, on whether it is a ready-to-use medicine or a cannabis flower. While finished medicinal products such as Sativex and Canemes as well as cannabis extracts are taken orally, patients can inhale cannabis flowers via a vaporizer. Ingestion via smoking is not recommended due to the harmful substances. Furthermore, it is possible to take the cannabis flowers as a tea.

How is cannabidiol (CBD) administered?

Isolated high-dose CBD can be taken as drops or capsules.
