It’s proven that medical marijuana can be effective for treating the following ailments:
- Chronic Pain
- Long-term Injury
- Cramps/muscle soreness
- Spinal Injury
It’s important to note that not all strains of medicinal marijuana do the same thing. It’s important to consult your Canadian Cannabis Clinc’s doctor or counsellor to find out the right strain for you.
A study conducted by Dr. Mark Ware of McGill University and a team of researchers across Canada kept track of 430 patients that have chronic pain. Half of the people in the study took medical cannabis and the other half served as controls. It was found that there was “no evidence of harmful effects on cognitive function or blood tests among cannabis consumers and we observed a significant improvement in their levels of pain, symptom distress, mood and quality of life compared to controls.” This speaks volumes about the benefits of medical marijuana for pain relief. Dr. Ware was quoted saying “These findings, and others like it, are in direct conflict with cannabis’ present schedule I status under federal law, a classification that fails to acknowledge the substance’s clinical efficacy and acceptable safety profile.” This applies to the United States where Schedule I Classification is described as not having any medical benefits according to the Federal Government. In Canada, Marijuana is a schedule II, where you are allowed to possess the drug with a prescription from a Doctor.
According to another study performed by the National Pain Report (USA), Medical Marijuana is more effective in treating people suffering from Fibromyalgia than Lyrica, Cymbalta and Savella which are popular Fibromyalgia relievers.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2015 more than 15,000 Americans died from overdoses involving prescription opioids. There were 0 recorded deaths related to marijuana overdoses in 2015 in the United States. What medicine would you rather prescribed to you?
