Medical Cannabis refers to the flowering plant, Cannabis, genus of the Cannabaceae family.
Cannabinoids are diverse chemical compounds that interact with the (inner) endocannabinoid system of which research has revealed receptors in the immune system, the brain, the gastrointestinal tract, and in tissue of the lung, heart, and adrenal glands, among other regions of the body. This endogenous system may play a role in the functions of appetite, memory, metabolism, reproduction, sleep, analgesia, and stress response, among other functions.
