How medical marijuana helps

Cancer & Chronic Pain

Cancer – Medical marijuana promotes appetite and reduces nausea and muscle spasms in patients undergoing treatment for cancer, and there is evidence that it directly kills malignant cells, stimulates the body to recycle damaged cells, and slows the growth of blood vessels that supply tumors. Cancer patients also report an improvement in their mood and mental attitude that makes it easier to manage pain and cope with discomfort.

Chronic pain – Cannabinoids interact with the body in a different way from opioids, making medical cannabis a good alternative when traditional pain medications fail to relieve chronic pain.

How medical marijuana helps

Multiple Sclerosis, Seizures, Epilepsy & Arthritis

Multiple Sclerosis – Medical marijuana helps to alleviate muscle spasms associated with MS, improve the performance of daily activities, and enhance the quality of life for MS patients. Medical cannabis is a safe option for MS patients with moderate to severe spasticity that is not responding to common anti-spastic drugs. The effectiveness of current oral antispasticity medications is often limited at tolerable doses, and many patients do not have sufficient access to physiotherapy, THC-CBD spray is generally well tolerated and safe for MS patients to use.

Seizures & Epilepsy – Studies suggest that CBD and THC stabilize neurotransmitters, the chemicals that send signals across brain cells. In many patients, medical marijuana has reduced the frequency and intensity of seizures.

Arthritis – CBD has been shown to have a beneficial effect on arthritis and reduce inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases.
