Medicinal cannabis strains for inflammation

How cannabis can help to reduce inflammation depends on the kind of strain you use and the contents of its cannabinoid and terpene profile. The main compound in cannabis that acts as an anti-inflammatory agent is CBD, and to a lesser extent THC. Other compounds that help to reduce inflammation are the terpenes Pinene, Caryophyllene, Myrcene and Humulene. On their own, these compounds work to combat inflammation in all parts of the body, but put together, in what is called the Entourage Effect, these compounds  are thought to become even stronger and more efficient.
