The cannabis plant, also known as marihuana, has hundreds of proven medicinal and therapeutical applications. It’s used to treat from strange congenital conditions to common health problems; from simple headaches to AIDS or cancer.

Furthermore, more is known about the therapeutic applications of marihuana than the majority of prescription drugs: marihuana has been tested by millions of people over thousands of years and in all that time, there has never been one single death due to marihuana consumption. By contrast, the majority of prescription drugs have only been tested over the last 10 to 50 years.

The greatest benefit of marihuana as a medicine is its unusual safety : the ratio between a deadly and an effective dose has been estimated at 20,000:1. Armed with this knowledge, administrative DEA judge Francis J. Young stated on the 6th September 1998 that “in its natural state, marihuana is one of the safest therapeutic active substances.”



Nervous system: The main medicinal effect of marihuana is as a sedative and antidepressant so that, like opiates, can be recommended for non-habitual use to treat anxiety, insomnia or depression. A deep knowledge of the drug’s properties is required for treating other psychiatric disorders as it may make some conditions worse. Small doses may stimulate the body’s nervous system at least during the first two hours (this will depend on the CBD content) followed by a sensation of stupor and sleepiness. Withdrawal symptoms are less severe than with other plants like opium or coca.

It has also been used to control spasticity in multiple sclerosis patients and to treat convulsions in epilepsy sufferers.


Ophthalmology: Reduces intraocular pressure and used to treat Glaucoma.


Oncology: Can be used in cases of neoplastic pain including palliative care in combination with opiate-derived drugs. It also has an antineoplastic effect in external applications and there is recently documented evidence of it being used to treat breast cancer (Published by SEIC, the Complutense University of Madrid).

Sexology: Proven effectiveness as an aphrodisiac at low doses and the opposite effect at high doses.


Infectious diseases: Cannabis produces active antibiotic substances effective against Gram+ microbes. Used topically, it enhances the effect of other analgesics (non-steroid antiinflammatories). Marihuana has low levels acute toxicity.

Anti-inflammatory: Recognised as an agent that controls the liberation of certain proinflammatory cytokines and highly recommended to treat neurological and neoplastic pain. CBD is a lypooxigenase inhibitor.


Anti-emetic: Induced jointly by THC and CBD. Recommended as part of a combined therapy with anti-neoplastics for controlling vomiting in cancer patients.


Side effects: Stupor, confused ideas, dilated pupils, exalted imagination, sleepiness. The mental effects return to normality after the consumption of natural acids such as lemon juice or coffee.


Strains for therapeutic use: We recommend strains with high levels of CBD and CBN for therapeutic use such as: Afgan Kush , White widow, Mazar, White Rhino, Great White Shark, Northern Light y Skunk.


Psychoactive compounds: Cannabidiol, cannabol, Delta-tetrahidrocannabinol, and cannabinolic acid. There are more than sixty cannabinoids in total with different levels of psychoactivity.
