What have general studies of medical cannabis applications revealed?

The endocannabinoid system in humans has been seen by the research to date to be a network that handles the body’s reflexes for “relax, eat, sleep, forget, and protect” responses. The endocannabinoid system is a unique system for “mind-body medicine.” The psychoactive nature of THC and the non-psychoactive nature of CBD and their synergy together, as well as terpenes and other related compounds, seem to be the source of Cannabis’s medicinal properties.
