How Can Medical Marijuana Help You?

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia causes debilitating pain that is difficult to treat. With no cure for the condition and very few effective traditional treatment options, it’s no surprise that patients may research the effectiveness of medical marijuana for fibromyalgia. Learn more about marijuana and fibromyalgia to determine if it’s a good treatment option for you or a loved one.

Cancer

Cancer has touched the lives of almost every person living in the U.S. today. When you find out you have cancer, it’s an incredible shock to your system. Thankfully, there are new treatments and ways of managing the disease coming out on a regular basis. If you’re struggling with cancer treatment or you know someone who is, it’s likely that you’ve wondered about taking medical cannabis for cancer to ease your symptoms

Intractable Nausea

We’ve all had an upset stomach before. But some patients experience chronic and severe nausea that gets in the way of living a quality life. It can be caused by an underlying disorder, or it can function as its own condition. Sometimes, even medication and treatment meant to address a different condition can cause chronic nausea.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

When a traumatic event occurs, it’s not always a simple thing to move past the experience. Those with a psychological condition called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), experience anxiety or even flashbacks due to the shock of the experience. Although a combination of therapy and certain medications offer some sufferers relief, many find it difficult to recover. However, evidence suggests that medical marijuana could be a breakthrough treatment for many of the symptoms associated with PTSD.

Arthritis

For patients suffering from painful inflammation characteristic of arthritis, medical cannabis is a great option to help keep that inflammation under control. Research has suggested that medical cannabis can help manage not just the common symptoms of arthritis, but also the side effects of having a long-term debilitating illness, like mood disorders and lack of appetite.

Epilepsy/ Seizures

Medical providers are more likely to recommend a cannabis treatment plan to patients with seizures as the medical community continues to discover the therapeutic properties of this substance. Since epilepsy and seizures can provoke a myriad of unwanted side effects that interfere with a person’s wellbeing, it’s crucial to explore alternative medication options that can bring patients relief. Today, cannabis has become a preferred treatment option that helps promote a sense of enhanced wellbeing while reducing the impact of seizures.

Ulcerative Colitis/ Crohn's Disease

If you or someone close to you have received an ulcerative colitis diagnosis, you probably want to learn as much as you can about it. You’ll be better prepared to manage symptoms and lead a fuller, more comfortable life by having a good understanding of the condition, including your treatment options. To alleviate your symptoms and to gain control over this condition, you can try various conventional treatments. You may also consider trying medical marijuana.

Cachexia

You’ll be understandably concerned if your physician diagnoses you with cachexia, as this wasting disorder is often associated with a severe illness. You could find that you can’t eat and that you lack the energy you once had, and you could even notice your physical condition begin to deteriorate. Because of these symptoms, you’ll likely lose a lot of weight, too.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma patients can turn to medical marijuana to help manage symptoms ranging from nausea that stems from glaucoma to the intraocular pressure that can do permanent damage to the eyes.

Chronic Pain

For patients dealing with physically and mentally debilitating effects of pain, medical cannabis offers real relief. It can impact a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, medical cannabis can mean relief from this life-altering, persistent pain.

HIV+/AIDS

If you’re not sure where to turn after being diagnosed with HIV or AIDS or are wondering about your treatment options, we can help. Your symptoms may include weight loss, loss of appetite, and peripheral neuropathy. The side effects of the medications may include nausea, vomiting, anxiety and trouble sleeping, and they lead many patients to research the effectiveness of medical marijuana for HIV/AIDS.

Persistent Muscle Spasms

Muscle spasms affect just about everyone, from foot cramps and midnight “charley horses” to strained and pulled muscles. Certain disorders and diseases also cause muscle spasms. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) can all cause patients to experience muscle spasms that range from uncomfortable to painful. Because of this, medical marijuana has become an increasingly popular option and an alternative to traditional prescription medicine, especially in states where medical marijuana is now legal. It’s also a more natural and effective alternative to everyday spasms or common muscle injuries, where opioids may be used for treatment.
