How medical cannabis works
Nature gave us a remarkably versatile and beneficial flower in medical cannabis. The medical cannabis plant contains compounds called cannabinoids and terpenes, which interact with receptors in the brain and body to create various effects. There are currently 100’s of known cannabinoids and terpenes found in the cannabis plant. THC and CBD are the two main cannabinoids that are currently the most abundant and researched.
Only patients who are legal Minnesota residents and have been certified with one of the qualifying conditions are eligible to receive medical cannabis in Minnesota.
