What Does Medical Marijuana Treat June 9, 2017

Medical marijuana has been approved on several states. The main idea of this approval is to provide people with all of the possible medicines. We already know that this new form of medicine is used to relieve symptoms or treat illness. It can be smoked or digested. It comes from the leaf of the Cannabis Sativa and it is miraculous. But, what does medical marijuana treat?

Medical marijuana is used to relief pain that comes from side effects of other medical treatments. This means nausea, dizziness, and vomit. On another note, it is also helpful for other diseases such as depression or anxiety. It has to be prescripted by a doctor and, depending on the patient, the treatment may be a short or long term treatment.

Some diseases treated with Marijuana are:

  • ALS
  • Anorexia 
  • Chronic pain
  • Epilepsy or seizures
  • Crohn”s disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Nausea, vomiting or severe wasting associated with cancer treatment 
  • Terminal illness
  • Tourette syndrome

However, this doesn’t mean that marijuana is legal now. In fact, each state gets to decide who can access to it and who can’t. If a person who is not available for a marijuana treatment is caught with marijuana will be arrested and face charges right away.
