The times, they are a-changing. Twenty-three states, and the District of Columbia currently allow medical marijuana, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Indeed, using marijuana to treat a variety of medical conditions is widely accepted as effectual and efficient treatment. A full 76% of medical doctors approve of its medical use. Medical marijuana consulting and marijuana business consulting is more common than ever as people try to figure out if medical cannabis is right for them.
As cannabis is moving out of the realm of the highly stigmatized in the collective consciousness, more and more people are becoming increasingly aware that it can seriously help relieve the symptoms of many hard to cure and hard to live with conditions.
Here is a list of conditions that medical marijuana has been proven to help with:
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
In New Mexico, the number one diagnoses for a medical marijuana licence at 27%, lists PTSD as the qualifying criteria for insurance. Indeed, PTSD is a serious condition that many people suffer from, for many, many years after the traumatic event has occurred. In fact, non-governmental studies have shown that as many as one in every five military personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan could suffer from forms of PTSD.
Analgesia, or pain relief, is an important part of life for anyone suffering from chronic pain caused by injury, cancer, AIDS, MS, or many other types of serious injuries. The compounds in medical marijuana are known to significantly relieve pain in patients, even when conventional medications are seen to fail. Most notably, cannabis has been observed to prevent or reverse some of the most painful side effects of chemotherapy.
Glaucoma, a condition caused by increased pressure within the eye, can cause blindness if not properly treated. Cannabis is known to dilate small capillaries, like those in the eyes, therefore decreasing the pressure, symptoms, and onset of glaucoma. A cannabis consultant can advise glaucoma patients on how best to administer the treatment.
If you have a medical condition that you would like to try to treat with medical marijuana, contact a medical marijuana consulting firm to try and figure out if that treatment method is right for you. As medical marijuana becomes a part of the main stream, cannabis consulting and other marijuana consulting agencies are becoming more accessible.
