Medical Cannabis
Medicinal Marijuana has been a hot button issue in several different states and counties across the country. Different uses of medicinal marijuana for ailing patients are being discovered every day.  A long list of medicinal marijuana benefits have been shown to help countless patients with pain and assist these patients in their day to day lives.
  • AIDS- Medicinal marijuana has shown positive progress in AIDS patients so reduce pain caused by the disease itself, alleviate any pain caused by any medications that are prescribed, suppress nausea, and increase appetite.
  • Premenstrual Syndrome- marijuana can be used to treat cramps that cause discomfort and pain.
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s disease- much like that of the uses for Premenstrual Syndrome, marijuana has been used to help with symptoms to stop nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea from patients who are suffering from debilitating IBS or Crohn’s.
  • Multiple Sclerosis- Marijuana has been known to stop the muscle spasms and neurological effects that come from this deadly disease.
  • Attention Deficit disorder and Attention Deficit Hyper Disorder- marijuana has been used as an excellent alternative to Ritalin, and treats the disorder without any of the damaging side effects of the prescribed pharmaceutical.
  • Glaucoma- one of the most well documented treatments of glaucoma, has been the use of medical marijuana. It helps glaucoma patients by easing interocular pressure and is safer alternative to other prescription medication currently on the market.
  • Migraines- since it’s legalization in California, medical practitioners have reported treatment of over 300,000 migraine patients that could not be cured through over the counter/conventional medication.
Medicinal marijuana continues to break stereotypes and makes leaps and bounds in the medical community. It attempts to bring back an age old method of treating ailing patients across the U.S. in hopes that antiquated laws and thinking will finally be broken in the realization of its curative properties.
