Cannabinoids: Plants are used as medicine and the more research studies that are conducted, the more information we will have when it comes to medical options for a variety of ailments, conditions, diseases, and disorders, etc., including sciatica. Chiropractor, Dr. Alex Jimenez investigates and brings insight to these developing medicines and how they can help patients in what they can do and what they cannot do.
The most known cannabinoid comes from the marijuana plant. It is the most recognized cannabinoid known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the compound that causes feelings of euphoria.
Researchers identified cannabinoids only in cannabis. However, new research studies found these same medicinal qualities in other plants, including black pepper, broccoli, carrots, clove, echinacea, and ginseng.
These vegetables or spices won’t get you high, but having an understanding of how these different plants affect the human body can ultimately help lead to further fundamental health discoveries.
