What is Marinol? How does this synthetic THC compare with regular Marijuana? Today on Lex's World we discuss effectiveness, cost, side-effects and why this medication exists for chemotherapy and AIDS patients. The long and the short of it is that this medication intends to 'copy' Cannabis by copying one of its Cannabinoids. However, it does not have Cannabidiol, Cannabinol or any of the other therapeutic Cannabinoids, thus making it a cheap... but ridiculously expensive... knockoff.
