THC is also available in pill form, which is FDA-approved, and is called Marinol. It is used to treat nausea and vomiting, and is very effective as a holistic, all-natural remedy. At the same time, studies have proved that THC protects brain cells in its capacity as a neuroprotectant.

THC gives a feeling of euphoria to many users, and offers them the opportunity to forget about their traumas and worries, at least for a while.
