Researching marijuana

When I turned forty-eight, I started noticing shooting pains on the left side of my body, close to my ribs.  At first, I didn’t worry, because I’d recently begun playing tennis.  I assumed I’d pulled some muscles, but after nearly two weeks, the pain did not go away.  I knew it was time to visit a doctor.  After testing, I was diagnosed with lung cancer.  Shortly thereafter, the prognosis only became worse.  I was informed that the cancer had attacked my lymph nodes and the lining of my stomach.  I was given  eight weeks to live.  This news was shocking to me and my family, and we started the search for some type of treatment.  I was told that radiation and chemo would not prove effective  for stage four lung…

Using medical marijuana for health

When I turned forty-nine, I started feeling sharp pains on the left side of my body, very close to my ribs.  At first, I figured the pan was caused by playing tennis.  I naturally assumed that  I’d pulled some muscles.  After two weeks, the pain did not lesson.  I knew I needed to schedule an appointment with a doctor.  I was tested and given the news that I had  developed lung cancer.  Over the course of  the following week, the prognosis grew much worse.  I was given the news that the cancer had spread to my lymph nodes as well as the lining of my stomach, and I was given only  eight weeks to live.  This was a devastating realization for  me and my family, and we decided to search…

Cannabis is a savior

When I turned fifty, I became aware of sharp pains on the left side of my body, very near my ribs.  At first, I assumed this  was because I’d recently taken up playing tennis.  I figured that I’d simply pulled some muscles, but after over a week, the pain did not lesson.  I realize I needed to see a doctor.  I was quickly diagnosed with  lung cancer, and in the following day, the prognosis only turned worse.  I was told that the cancer had affected my lymph nodes and the lining of my stomach, and I was given approximately to nine months to live.  This news was difficult to accept, for both me and my family.  My husband and I began the quest for some type of treatment.  I was…

Medical marijuana

When I turned fifty, I started noticing sharp pains on the left side of my body, right near my ribs.  At first, I thought it was because I’d recently begun playing tennis.  I thought I’d pulled some muscles, but after several days, the pain did not lesson.  I knew it was time to see a doctor.  I was then diagnosed with non-small-cell lung cancer, and in the following month, the prognosis only grew worse.  I was informed that the cancer had reached my lymph nodes and the lining of my stomach, and I was given six to nine months to live.  This news was devastating to me and my family, and we began the search for some type of treatment.  I was told that radiation and chemo were not effective…

Medical cannabis is a miracle

In my opinion, cannabis is a miracle herb. In preventative and reactive measures, cannabis is beneficial for both mind and body. It provides relief from the symptoms of debilitating illnesses, while also easing stress and promoting a more positive outlook. Marijuana is only beginning to be fully understood and appreciated as a medical breakthrough. For years, I have endorsed the many therapeutic advantages of medical marijuana, and I continue to draw attention to the potential. I do my best to educate those who are ignorant . As one of the most effective natural healing remedies, the benefits of cannabis are numerous and ongoing. I don’t think that many people understand that the providers of medical marijuana are held to strict criteria for quality. Products are lab tested to ensure safety…

Cannabinoid chemicals

Marijuana plants produce chemicals called cannabinoids, which are being used to treat a diverse range of medical conditions. I was surprised to learn that the human body also produces cannabinoid chemicals, and they impact memory, thinking, concentration, appetite, pain, pleasure, and the five senses. It is not difficult to see how cannabinoid chemicals from the marijuana plant could be very useful as medicine. There are currently two main cannabinoids from the marijuana plant that are being tested and utilized by the medical community. The two chemicals are called THC and CBD, and they provide very different effects and advantages. THC increases appetite and reduces nausea, while also diminishing pain and inflammation, and helping with muscle control problems. CBD is unusual in that it is a cannabinoid that doesn’t provide any…

We are seeing some great benefits

Over the years, the benefits and drawbacks of medical marijuana have been continually debated. Medical marijuana refers to the use of the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant or its extracts to treat conditions or symptoms of illness. The FDA has yet to recognize or approve the marijuana plant as a legitimate medicine, but a lot of people would disagree. A great many people rely on medicinal marijuana to give relief from AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, migraines, anorexia and much more. Research into the advantages and consequences continues and will hopefully provide clearer results. Scientific studies have already led to FDA-approved medications which contain cannabinoid chemicals in pill form. Because marijuana supplies chemicals that help treat of broad range of illnesses and symptoms, I feel that it should be legal for medical…

I am having a great experience

My first experiencing purchasing legal medical marijuana was not at all what I was expecting. I assumed that the shop would be dark, rundown, and dirty. I was amazed by how bright, modern and clean the facility is. It is a wonderfully comfortable and professional atmosphere. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and helped me to determine the right choice of medicine for my specific needs. It was refreshing to visit an establishment and speak with people who support the therapeutic advantages of cannabis. There is a wide selection of fresh flowers, pre-rolls, vape cartridges, edibles, and all sorts of accessories. A lot of people don’t understand the benefits of natural healing remedies, and I was relieved to have access to so many safe products and helpful recommendations. Talking with…

Legalizing marijuana

I had not realized that medical marijuana has been legal in California since 1996. I thought that the legalization process was a much more recent battle. The proposition is called the Compassionate Use act, and it legalizes possession, cultivation, transport and administration of medical marijuana for a patient’s personal use. The amount must remain within what is considered reasonable for the patient’s medical needs. Users of medical marijuana are required to purchase marijuana through the existing medical marijuana legal system. It is necessary to obtain a doctor’s recommendation or approval for treatment. Medical conditions, such as AIDS, arthritis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and seizures are all eligible for treatment with medical marijuana. There have also been proven success in the treatment of anorexia, migraine, and nausea. In November of 2016, the…
