Cannabis is a natural pain reliever that has a positive effect on many pain symptoms such as nausea, headaches, muscle spasms, sensitivity to light and sound, and many others. The way in which cannabis acts on your body is very simple: throughout the brain and body, we have cannabinoid receptors and marijuana contains a natural compound called cannabinoids (THC). When we ingest cannabis, these compounds look for the receptors and once they are attached, they alter the function of the receptors, which reduces the level of pain. Another active ingredient in cannabis is CBD that contains a compound called "cannabidiol" and has shown the same benefits, but without the feeling of being intoxicated as THC does.
