The legalization of medical marijuana has now spread across around 60% of America, but even so, there is still some resistance against accepting cannabis use. The stigma that is attached to marijuana is hard to shake, but like it or not there is a significant amount of evidence to support the benefits of medical marijuana.

The legalization of medical marijuana has now spread across around 60% of America, but even so, there is still some resistance against accepting cannabis use. The stigma that is attached to marijuana is hard to shake, but like it or not there is a significant amount of evidence to support the benefits of medical marijuana.

Let’s take a look at some of the diseases that medical marijuana can be used to treat.

Chronic Pain

A staggering number of adults are suffering from chronic pain. Aside from the initial issues they are experiencing due to their illness, a growing number of chronic pain sufferers end up addicted to the pain relief that was supposed to help them. Opioid abuse is a global epidemic with the highly addictive pain medications leading to long-term damage that goes beyond the chronic pain. However, medical marijuana is increasingly being used as an alternative to opioids. Not only can it offer pain relief, thus reducing the need for opioids, but it is also far less likely to cause addiction.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Anyone who has been affected by post-traumatic stress disorder can tell you it is a debilitating condition. However, recent research has shown that medical marijuana could be one of the most effective treatments for PTSD. Those suffering from the condition have much lower levels of anandamide, a compound also found in cannabis. When suffering from PTSD, the patient’s body is not producing enough, but using marijuana can rectify this.

Epilepsy

There have been many studies conducted regarding how medical marijuana can help with epilepsy. The active cannabinoids in marijuana are believed to have antiepileptic effects in patients who have either partial or tonic-clonic seizure thresholds.

Crohn’s Disease

There have been some pretty compelling studies into the effects of cannabis on Crohn’s Disease. In one particular study, 90% of the participants reported their symptoms were relieved with the use of marijuana. Furthermore, 45% of them had total remission.

Glaucoma

Using medical marijuana in the treatment of glaucoma is nothing new. In fact, it can be traced back through almost five decades. Regular use of cannabis can reduce lower intraocular pressure in the eye which is the primary cause of sight loss in glaucoma patients.

Multiple Sclerosis

Another of the conditions that can be alleviated through the use of marijuana is multiple sclerosis. With regular use, patients will experience less pain and a reduction in their muscle spasms. These are the same reasons why it is also helpful for people with spinal cord injuries as well since the symptoms can be similar.

Cancer

When it comes to the diseases that can be treated with medical marijuana, the big one that everyone already knows is cancer! Not only has cannabis been used for many years to alleviate the pain caused by cancer, but it has also been proven to slow down the growth rate of certain cancer cells. Some studies have even shown that cannabinoids could reduce or even stop the spread of some forms of cancer.
