Desired Effects and Ingredients

Here is a list of 19 common Desired Effects, Goals, or Outcomes and the different active ingredients in The Amazing Flower that are known for providing these effects, whether through clinical trials, peer-reviewed research, expert opinion, or anecdotes.

Most of the studies and trials focus on a single active ingredient, so their use in combination with others found naturally in cannabis is not always clear. We chose to err on the side of inclusion and let you decide for yourself.

Remember, these are NOT claims about efficacy, and we do not sell any products with these ingredients. We are just summarizing the best available information be could find.

The Desired Effects List is focused mostly on specific medical symptoms primarily because there is more reliable research in this area versus consumer wellness and lifestyle goals. We hope you will contribute one "What Works Best" survey and help support our "Quest for 100,000 Anecdotes". We feel confident the results will help shed more light in the very important area of wellness and lifestyle.
