In the world of medical cannabis, you can choose between products containing THC that produce psychoactive effects (i.e. relaxation or boost in energy) in addition to the healing properties – or you can select a CBD product that has no psychoactive effects at all. Either way, medical cannabis can affect your life and provide the healing and comfort you desire and deserve. Following are just some of the conditions medical cannabis is proven to treat:
Studies show that cannabis (and other products containing cannabinoids) is effective at relieving chronic pain, one of the leading causes of disabilities in the world.
Alcoholism and drug addiction:
While some feel that cannabis is addictive itself, many studies show that using marijuana can actually help people with alcohol or hard drug dependencies to fight their addictions.
Depression, social anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder:
Evidence suggests that cannabis helps treat several mental health conditions, especially those related to anxiety, stress and depression.
There is also strong evidence that oral cannabinoids are effective in treating nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy. In addition, there are some studies that have found cannabis to aid in slowing the spread of some cancers (such as testicular), although this is still not considered conclusive.
Short-term use of oral cannabinoids is found to offer modest improvement in the symptoms of spasticity for those with multiple sclerosis.
