What is medical cannabis?

Medical cannabis (or medical marijuana) is a broad term used to describe any cannabis based medicine used to relieve symptoms of an illness or pain associated with it. Medical cannabis is used in the UK, USA, Europe and all over the world. In places where medical cannabis is legal, a medical cannabis card is sometimes given to users to identify them as authorised medical users.

Best medical cannabis seeds

Most medical cannabis users are familiar with the idea of THC rich medical cannabis or perhaps CBD rich medical cannabis. Both types are widely used and appreciated. But cannabis has many medical uses and the medical effects of cannabis have been increasingly valuable as more and more people become aware of the medical benefits. Pioneering cannabis breeding work by Dutch Passion has also resulted in new cannabinoids becoming available. You can now buy cannabis seeds rich in CBG (cannabigerol)THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin) and CBDV (Cannabidivarin).

Medical cannabis FAQ

Can I get a prescription for medical cannabis?

In some countries you can qualify for a medical cannabis card. Those countries with legal medical cannabis will often issue medical cannabis cards for specific illnesses. This means you will be allowed medical cannabis, labels on the container should show the cannabinoid content so you know exactly what you are using.

What does the medical world use cannabis for?

Medical cannabis has been used for a surprisingly wide range of issues. Some people use medical cannabis (or medical cannabis oil) for pain relief. Others will use it to ease symptoms of a particular illness. For some people cannabis assists restful sleep, relief from nausea or appetite enhancement. Pharmaceutical companies are researching medical cannabis for many applications from epilepsy to diabetes to Parkinson’s Disease. Medical benefits of cannabis are wide and diverse and certainly not yet fully explored.

What are the reported benefits of medical cannabis?

There are so many claimed medical benefits of cannabis that it’s difficult to list them all. In reality much research remains to be done. One of the main side effects from cannabis is the sometimes unwanted psychoactive ‘high’. Though many THC-free strains are now also available

What are the most effective consumption methods?

Many people smoke or vaporise the plant buds. Others use cannabis oils (known as Rick Simpson oil, hash oil etc). You can also eat cannabis edibles or use cannabis tinctures and topical creams. For many medical cannabis users, a simple and convenient way to enjoy the medical benefits of cannabis buds is with a simple vaporiser.

Why should you always consult medical professionals?

Dutch Passion are cannabis seed specialists rather than medical experts. We can supply cannabis seeds which are rich in many of the most valuable cannabinoids but it’s difficult for us to make medical cannabis claims or recommendations. It’s always best to consult medical professionals when considering use of medical cannabis. Always be cautious of non-medical professionals making medical cannabis claims that they cannot fully substantiate.
