10 conditions cannabis can help

  1. 1. 10 Conditions: Can Cannabis Help?
  2. 2. Doctors report more and more of their patients are coming in with questions about medical cannabis: – Can it help my migraines? – Can it help my anxiety? – My chronic pain?
  3. 3. It’s easy for us to say, “Yes! Everyone should be able to use cannabis to see if helps their condition!” But, alas, the government and most heath practitioners don’t see it that way.
  4. 4. 10 However, there are many conditions that respond extremely well to cannabis treatment. Here are
  5. 5. Epilepsy There is overwhelming anecdotal evidence that cannabis is unrivaled in its beneficial effect on Epileptic seizures. The cases are so compelling that the American Epilepsy Foundation recently released a statement “call[ing] for an end to Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) restrictions that limit clinical trials and research into medical marijuana for epilepsy.”
  6. 6. Chronic Pain Underscoring the efficacy of cannabis for treatment, chronic pain syndrome is included on the qualifying condition lists of every state that has a medical cannabis program.
  7. 7. Fibromyalgia A study of 1,300 fibromyalgia patients conducted by the National Pain Foundation and National Pain Report found that medical cannabis is far better at treating symptoms than any of the 3 most widely prescribed FDA approved drugs.
  8. 8. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder The most common treatments for PTSD are the anti- depressants or anti- psychotics, but these carry serious side-effects (including suicide in extreme cases) and very low levels of success. However, scores of people suffering from PTSD report significant relief from cannabis.
  9. 9. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Scientist doing research on alternative treatments for MS found that cannabis was the only thing that worked. The reductions in some patients tremors after using cannabis are remarkable.
  10. 10. Migraines Until 1942 cannabis was the standard treatment for migraines. Cannabis has anti- inflammatory and analgesic properties and is mild vasodilator that can lower blood pressure and can help to ward of nausea.
  11. 11. Crohn’s Disease • Crohn’s Disease effects the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and can cause pain, fever, fatigue, diarrhea, loss of appetite and overall discomfort, among other things. • Researchers in Tel Aviv found significant reductions in the need for both medication and surgery for those patients who used medical cannabis to treat Symptoms of Crohn's Disease.
  12. 12. Glaucoma/Iritis Iritis is an inflammation of the eye’s iris, which, if gone untreated, can lead to glaucoma or blindness. Cannabis relieves pressure on the eye that causes Iritis.
  13. 13. Cancer • Many cancer patients who are going through chemotherapy use cannabis to successfully combat nausea and loss of appetite. • There is also some evidence that cannabis can effectively kill cancer cells.
  14. 14. Parkinson’s Disease Israeli researchers found that cannabis can significantly relieve the pain and tremors of Parkinson’s Disease and allow patients to sleep better.
