Why Choose Medical Marijuana 

If you have chronic pain and want to take something that has great benefits and lack of side effects – medical marijuana might be the right choice for you.

What is chronic pain?

It is pain that lasts longer than six months. Chronic pain can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating.

With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can take both a physical and emotional toll on a person.

Chronic pain causes severe problems for patients, especially when there are two or more co-existing chronic pain conditions such as: pain

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Inflammatory Bowel Dises
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Benefits of cannabis

If you are suffering from chronic pain, you may experience greater relief if your doctors add cannabinoids – the main ingredient in cannabis or medical marijuana – to an opiates-only treatment.

A combined therapy of opiates and cannabis could result in reduced opiate dosages.

Cannabis helps cancer and HIV patients and others who suffer from the most severe cases of chronic pain. Some people have severe pain with physical activity like walking and for others it affects daily routines like decreased appetite. Cannabis helps you deal with non-stop chronic pain and function better throughout the day, increasing your quality of life. 

Benefits outweigh the risks

More and more influential medical associations support cannabis and its derivatives for pain management and other medical conditions because research has shown it to be effective. When examining the risks and benefits of marijuana use for pain, the benefits far outweigh the risks.

Cannabis has therapeutic properties not replicated by other available medications – and side effects of cannabis are typically less severe than ones associated with common prescription medications.
