Facts About Marijuana For Medical Conditions

For centuries, natural medicine practitioners have understood the significance of marijuana. This natural herb provides many different healing properties and also provides relief for many conditions that do not respond to other forms of treatment. In addition to the healing properties, the herb is very easy to process and use.

Many states now recognize the importance of marijuana as a medical treatment. These states have legalized the use of marijuana as a treatment for several conditions. Although each state has its own specific lists on what can be treated with marijuana in their state, a general list of conditions includes:

  • Glaucoma
  • Pain Management for Chronic Conditions
  • Cancer
  • Some Neurological Disorders
  • Some Eating Disorders
  • Some Seizure Disorders

In addition to these legalized conditions, natural medicine practitioners have found that the use of marijuana also helps the following conditions:

  • Sleep Disorders
  • Pain Management for Chronic Conditions
  • Cancer

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of marijuana for the treatment of any specific condition. However, the medical community has recognized the importance of this herb for providing relief to people who are suffering from medical conditions that do not respond to other forms of treatment.

It is still illegal to use marijuana on a federal level. However, if it is legal to use medical marijuana in your state, you are encouraged to give this natural treatment a chance to treat your condition. Marijuana does not have the dangerous side effects of most pain management medications. For some conditions, like glaucoma, marijuana is one of the few medical treatments that provide true relief.

To use medical marijuana legally in your state, you should inquire about the requirements for use. In most cases, you will need to have a doctor recommendation and carry a special medical marijuana card provided by your health care provider.
