Medical marijuana can be used to treat a number of medical and physical ailments.
- Medical marijuana comes from the cannabis sativa plant.
The cannabis sativa plant contains natural cannabinoids and these can help the body. Medical marijuana can be used for treating a number of different conditions like multiple sclerosis, cancer, glaucoma, and even epilepsy. Medical marijuana can also be used to treat muscle spasms, pain, and appetite loss. My sister had a terrible problem with anorexia when she was in college. She starved her buddy for 3 years and it was very difficult for her to learn how to eat a regular diet with protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates. One thing that helped was medical marijuana. Not only did it increase her appetite, but it also made her feel less anxiety in general. That was very helpful in her recovery. My sister still uses medical marijuana everyday. It still helps increase her appetite and the mental health benefits were great too. After I saw how medical marijuana could help my sister, I talked to the doctor about prescribing marijuana for my husband. He has terrible restless legs at night and I thought it might be helpful to get him a prescription for marijuana. Maybe if he could smoke a bowl before he goes to bed, he would be able to sleep more calmly and get better rest. I think it would help, but the only way to buy marijuana legally is to get a prescription from the doctor and go to a medical dispensary. My husband has too much pride to talk to the doctor, but I’m tired of getting kicked every night.
