There are two main chemical compounds in marijuana called cannabinoids. These compounds are THC and CBD. THC can offer relief for certain health issues, but it is also the compound that produces the “high” most people associate with marijuana. CBD has been shown to help patients with certain medical problems, but without producing the same side effects associated with THC. The effects of marijuana can vary for each individual person and depend on the percentages of CBD and THC present in the strain of marijuana used. Medical marijuana can be ingested in a few different ways. By Ohio state law, marijuana may not be smoked in the traditional sense—that means Ohio does not allow for the “combustion” of medical marijuana—it can instead be used in oil form, in edibles, tinctures, or through the use of a vape pen. Side effects of medical marijuana can include feelings of relaxation and happiness, sleepiness, or in some cases anxiety. Larger doses can sometimes induce hallucinations or paranoia.
