Medical marijuana is legalized in most states for its therapeutic benefits in treating a variety of diseases and conditions. If you are suffering from a medical condition, you may qualify for medical cannabis in Miami. When you visit MMJ Care MD, you will work with a doctor who will perform an evaluation and create an individualized treatment plan.
It’s important to note that qualifying health conditions vary by state. In the state of Florida, you can use medical marijuana as an alternative treatment for the following common conditions.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a condition that affects people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. PTSD is usually associated with war veterans who experienced the trauma of war, but it is possible to have PTSD in less extreme, but significantly traumatic situations. Victims of rape, abuse, car accidents, and even natural disasters can also suffer from PTSD.
This condition affects people in several ways, from experiencing nightmares and panic attacks, to having thoughts of suicide. Medical marijuana can offer therapeutic effects and reduce brain activity associated with people’s fear response. It can even help to eliminate some of the traumatic memories that led to PTSD.
Muscle spasms are uncomfortable and can cause extreme discomfort and pain. Because marijuana is known to be an effective alternative treatment for multiple sclerosis, a condition with similar symptoms to muscle spasms, it is also considered an effective treatment for muscle spasms. When taking medical marijuana, it reduces inflammatory proteins in the body that trigger spasms.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition in the brain that causes seizures and other health problems, and it can affect people of all ages.
People who are diagnosed with epilepsy generally have experienced two unprovoked seizures, or one unprovoked seizure, with a high risk of getting another. More research is needed to determine the effects of medical marijuana for epilepsy, but many people have experienced reduced seizures while taking this alternative treatment. Therapeutic effects are likely the result of CBD and THC, two ingredients found in marijuana that harness several medicinal properties.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system, which can leave people vulnerable to infections and diseases. When left untreated, HIV can turn into aids, a late stage of HIV that significantly compromises the immune system. Although there is no known cure for HIV/AIDS and the body can’t get rid of either virus, medication can make it more manageable. One benefit of using medical marijuana is that it can treat symptoms without causing side effects. Whereas medication frequently prescribed by doctors for treating HIV/AIDS can be very hard on the body.
Crohn’s is an inflammatory disease of the bowel that can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, malnutrition, and other serious symptoms. It can affect the digestive tract and spread deep into the bowel, which can have life-threatening complications. There is no cure for Crohn’s disease, but with the right treatment, people can continue living normal lives. Because medical marijuana can combat inflammation, it is used to relieve symptoms of Crohn’s disease.
Glaucoma is a common disease that damages your eyes’ optic nerves, which can lead to blindness. Fortunately, blindness is preventable with early detection and treatment. Cannabis can help treat this disease by reducing intraocular pressure, which leads to pressure in the eye. This pressure can eventually damage the optic nerve. When using medical marijuana to treat glaucoma, it can be administered orally, intravenously, or by inhaling it.
