SUMMARY. A central tenet underlying the use of botanical remedies is
that herbs contain many active ingredients. Primary active ingredients
may be enhanced by secondary compounds, which act in beneficial synergy.
Other herbal constituents may mitigate the side effects of dominant
active ingredients. We reviewed the literature concerning medical cannabis
and its primary active ingredient, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Good evidence shows that secondary compounds in cannabis may enhance
the beneficial effects of THC. Other cannabinoid and non-cannabinoid
compounds in herbal cannabis or its extracts may reduce THC-induced
anxiety, cholinergic deficits, and immunosuppression. Cannabis terpenoids
and flavonoids may also increase cerebral blood flow, enhance cortical
activity, kill respiratory pathogens, and provide anti-inflammatory activity.
