1.Low-THC cannabis has very low amounts of the psychoactive ingredient THC and does not usually produce the high commonly associated with cannabis. Patients with cancer or a condition that causes chronic seizures or muscle spasms may qualify to receive low-THC cannabis.
2. Medical Cannabis can contain sufficient levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC to produce the high commonly associated with cannabis. If a patient is suffering from a condition that has been determined to be terminal by two physicians, he or she may qualify for medical cannabis.
