As we meet with you we’ll talk to you about how medical marijuana can be helpful in treating a variety of conditions, with results that can reduce, and in some cases, eliminate symptoms of:
Chronic pain: Many studies and reports state that chronic pain is the number one reason people seek medical marijuana and the relief it may provide them. Chronic pain can severely limit people’s lives and sometimes cause them to self-medicate using alcohol or other drugs. Medical marijuana can be a better long-term pain relief solution for many chronic pain sufferers.
PTSD: Some people suffering from PTSD have used medical marijuana to help reduce or eliminate the reliving of traumatic episodes and triggers of past trauma. There is some evidence that people who live with PTSD can find relief with medical marijuana, and then function in places and situations that used to trigger PTSD episodes.
Multiple Sclerosis: Some people living with MS have found that using marijuana has relieved their insomnia, tremors and other symptoms. There are others with MS who have used medical marijuana for relief from muscle spasticity. Various studies and fact sheets discuss these points, including this helpful FAQ from The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
