Cannabis education

There are over 100 known cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the most commonly discussed. The cannabis plants contains over 400 different compounds including over 300 non – cannabinoids.

Anandamide is the most studied endocannabinoid in the human body and was discovered in 1993. The name is derived from the sanskrit word “ananda” meaning bliss or delight, which is one of the main cerebral effects of anandamide. Anandamide receptors are the primary molecular target responsible for the pharmacological effects of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

Cannabinoids

Medicinal Cannabis can be consumed orally or vaporised. Oral consumption results in a slower onset but more sustained effect. Vaping flowers means the medicine takes effect very quickly but the effects are shorter in duration with higher peak physiological and psychological effects. Your doctor will tailor you dosing regime to you, we are all different and integrative plant medicine requires a different strategy for each patient and their unique ECS.

THC

One of the major cannabinoids which has theraputic potential as an analgesic, anti – inflammatory and anti – nausea / anti – vomiting agent. THC possesses psychoactive properties and is responsible for the “high” feeling experienced by some patients.

CBD

A non – intoxicating cannabinoid gaining favour with prescribers for its strong, medicinal properties. Research on CBD shows that it may reduce pain, anxiety and inflammation. I has also been found to be a potent anti – epileptic agent.

Terpenes

The terpene profile of a product not only determines the scent and flavour but may also influence how each variety of cannabis impacts each person. Terpenes are suspected to have medicinal properties of their own, in addition to working with CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids to produce the overall therapeutic effect of a product

Acknowledgement

As health care professionals, we acknowledge the existence of other useful medicines that could bring relief to our patients. The use of medicinal cannabis is currently accepted by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), upon application by a registered medical practitioner. There are certain conditions approved for use. To ensure ethical and responsible prescribing patients must actively engage in the screening process. The TGA’s assessment process is stringent and they make the final decision in granting access to treatment. For this reason we have a very thorough and comprehensive screening process prior to an application.
