Medical Marijuana is something that is becoming more and more popular as more and more states pass laws to allow people to use it. There are still many people, however, who aren’t quite sure what it is or how it’s used or the range of things it can help to treat. There are, in fact, a rather wide range of issues that can patients may find relief from through the use of medical marijuana. If you live in a state that allows the use of medical marijuana, the first step is discussing it with your doctor. If they believe it will help alleviate your pain or discomfort, they will give you a “marijuana card” that authorizes you to purchase marijuana from a dispensary. Marijuana can help alleviate pain from headaches, cancer, glaucoma, and nerve pain–it can also help cease muscle spasms from MS, nausea from chemotherapy, Crohn’s disease, seizure disorders, and chronic illness’ that may reduce appetite and cause weight loss.

Marijuana enhances our own body’s natural chemicals that can affect our inflammation and pain. You may use marijuana a number of ways–it’s largely a personal preference whether you choose to smoke it, vape it or eat it. Side effects for marijuana are minimal and typically very short term, but may include short-term memory loss, drowsiness, or dizziness–in some rare, severe cases anxiety or psychosis may occur.
