Cannabinoid chemicals are extremely powerful and are used to regulate pleasure, body movement, thinking, appetite, memory, awareness of time, concentration and the five senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch). The two cannabinoids present in the marijuana plant are CBD and THC. THC reduces nausea and muscle control problems, while increasing appetite. CBD reduces pain, inflammation and helps people cope with mental illness and does not affect the behavior and mind.
