What is white widow Cannabis?
Cannabis (also known as marijuana or marihuana) is a common name for the Cannabis plant. There are two major types of Cannabis plant, Cannabissativa and Cannabis indica. The chemical substances that provide the effects of cannabis are known as cannabinoids. There are hundreds of cannabinoids in the plant. Two of the most common and best-studied cannabinoids are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol(CBD), which are responsible for the majority of effects that cannabis has on the body. THC is known for producing the “high” effect people associate with cannabis use. CBD, on the other hand, does not produce the “high” or euphoria that THC does. There are many factors that affect the ratio of THC to CBD in a particular plant, including the strain and the growing conditions.

However, the evidence supporting its effectiveness for these uses are limited
– many studies showed conflicting results and most studies were done with a small number of participants. This makes it difficult to draw any definitive conclusions on its effectiveness. Another issue is that the dosage used in these studies varied, making it hard to determine the proper dosage for medical use. Currently, there are many ongoing trials to try and understand more about cannabis and its possible medical uses.
Commercially available prescription products that use or closely imitate THC include nabilone (Cesamet®) and THC-cannabidiol (Sativex®).
