Medical Marijuana for Chronic Pain
Prominent health organizations acknowledge the benefits and lack of side effects of using medical cannabis for controlling chronic pain
Chronic pain is widely accepted by the medical community to signify disease itself, which can be made much worse by environmental and psychological factors. Chronic pain persists over a long period of time and is resistant to most medical treatments. Chronic pain causes severe problems for patients, especially when you have two or more co-existing chronic pain conditions like:
Inflammatory Bowel Dises
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
And many more…
There is scientific evidence that cannabinoids possess pain relieving properties, and some clinical evidence to support their medical use for patients suffering from painful conditions.
Cannabis helps cancer and HIV patients and others who suffer from the most severe cases of chronic pain. While some people can’t walk without experiencing severe pain, others are unable to eat regularly due to a decreased appetite from other prescribed medications.
* as always please be sure to consult with a health professional to assess the risks and rewards of adding medicinal cannabis to your treatment program.
