Medical Marijuana For Pain Management
Medical marijuana is also known as medical cannabis. It is often marketed as a treatment of various medical conditions. People suffering from nausea, seizures, and pain can feel its effects. To relieve the symptoms of their ailments, doctors often prescribe this drug. It is legal in many States and has been used for hundreds upon years, being taken as a volcano hybrid with many benefits for the health.
It eases pain
It is clear that marijuana can ease pain. But, the question is how effective it can be used to relieve chronic pain. This question was answered by research that found cannabis to be a highly effective pain relief that doesn’t cause addiction and does not interfere with cognitive function. This is the main reason why Integrated Spine and Pain Care offers patients the option to use medical marijuana for pain management.
It reduces nausea
Research has shown that marijuana’s compound can modulate the endocannabinoid, which regulates sleep, appetite, pain, as well as sleep. Cannabinoids, which are naturally produced by the body, can be used to treat nausea. Research is promising and cannabis is being used as a treatment to treat nausea.
It reduces the risk of vomiting
Medical marijuana is a natural remedy that may ease vomiting and other nausea-related symptoms. The cannabinoids in cannabis can help relieve nausea and stimulate appetite.
It is used for epilepsy treatment
Despite the legal gray area surrounding cannabis, medical researchers are studying its effects on epileptic seizures. Epidiolex, a CBD-containing cannabis product, showed a significant decrease of seizures in children with Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut disorders. The US Food and Drug Administration approved it for treatment of tuberous Sclerosis Complex, a genetic disorder that causes benign brain tumors. Epidiolex, a liquid form or CBD of cannabidiol is administered using a special syringe.
