Is medical marijuana safe for children? What is the most effective way to find the right product?

Children suffering from serious illnesses may receive various dangerous and addictive drugs. These medicines comprise opioids and benzodiazepines. They also have a number of long- and short-term adverse consequences. However the human body can tolerate medical marijuana very well, which means there is no risk of overdose.


Children should not be given cannabinoid-based medicines from their parents. THC is psychoactive and can result in brain damage especially when taken in large quantities. It is advised to seek advice from a physician prior to making use of large amounts of THC.


Children might find other cannabinoids such as CBDV as well as THCA more useful than THC. They don't have the same psychoactivity as THC however they are not likely to create long-term changes in the brain.
