What is Medicinal Cannabis 
Medical cannabis originates from three different species of wild cannabis: Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis and has been widely used as a medicine for thousands of years.
There are two main cannabis chemicals known to have the most medical benefit; THC and CBD. Treatments that include the whole plant – a combination of THC and CBD – have a better effect than just the individual components. This is known as the entourage effect. Medical cannabis with different ratios of THC & CBD is prescribed for particular conditions and symptoms.

How does Medical Cannabis work?
Cannabis supplements the body’s natural cannabis system; the endocannabinoid system.
This system has an effect on memory, control of movement, modulation of pain, development of nerve growth and plasticity, and the adaptability of the nervous system. It also has an influence on sleep, appetite, anxiety, and social behaviour, as well as on the bladder, the bowels, the reproductive system, the heart, the hormonal and metabolic systems, and the control of cancer.
There are natural chemicals circulating in the body that attach to cannabinoid receptors in the body, CB1 and CB2. Through this chemical attachment, the body’s endocannabinoid system performs its functions. Cannabis treatments supplement and assist the body’s natural circulation of cannabis-like chemicals.

Balanced THC:CBD strains
Increasing medical consensus is that a balanced ratio between THC and CBD delivers the best therapeutic benefits. Aside from addressing issues like insomnia, pain and muscle spasms, this ratio is being tested for effectiveness against conditions like skin disease, autism, fibromyalgia and certain types of cancer.

CBD dominant strains
High CBD strains can be used for many medical conditions including treatment-resistant epilepsy and anxiety, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and colitis. Often, treatments will start with a CBD dominant strain, as many people wish to avoid the “high” that may come from a THC dominant strain.

THC dominant strain
THC can be a beneficial medicine for conditions including chronic pain and post-chemotherapy treatment, as it increases appetite and reduces nausea. It can also reduce inflammation and improve muscle control and coordination. The effects can include euphoria, positive mood and relaxation. It is still best to use THC along with CBD to counteract any anxiety, which sometimes results from THC dominant treatments. Sometimes other ratios can be used if, for example, patients are sensitive to THC then a strain with a higher CBD content can be prescribed. The high CBD content ensures the effect of THC can be counteracted, so patients can receive the benefits of both.

Taking Medicinal Cannabis Treatments 
At Solihull Cannabis Clinic each prescription differs from patient to patient depending on the patient’s specific condition and symptoms. Your clinician will work closely with you to ensure that you are prescribed a suitable dose of medical cannabis in the most effective way for you.
