There have been minimum two chemicals which is in Marijuana that scientists and researchers may think that help in medical treatment. These two chemicals are CANNABIDIOL (CBD) – which researchers think may affect the brain without problem and TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL (THC) – which has the ability to get relieved from pain.
