Marijuana Breakthrough In Medicine


Marijuana Breakthrough In Medicine Abel

~3.4 mins read

Did you know, nearly 2 million people reported using marijuana exclusively for medical reasons.

That number is only bound to increase as more and more states legalize the use of cannabis for medical purposes. But the popularity of this "new" treatment has created a flood of misinformation and false promises. Unscrupulous companies and marijuana enthusiasts are making claims it can treat everything from anxiety and depression, to inflammation, weight gain and even dementia.

But what are the facts? What are the proven benefits, and what are the risks? What's the right dose, and how do you determine the quality of what you are taking? Do the products you're buying even contain the ingredients they promise?

Don't take chances with your health. Get accurate answers straight from the experts at Harvard Medical School in Medical Marijuana an all-new online report you can download right now.

  • Arthritis Pain? Studies show that medical marijuana is effective in relieving pain caused by arthritis as well as cancer, nerve damage, migraine and musculoskeletal diseases.

  • Trouble Sleeping? There is evidence of effectiveness for disturbed sleep associated with sleep apnea, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and MS.

  • Anxious? The clinical evidence is limited, but medical marijuana can have a positive effect on conditions such as social anxiety and PTSD.

    New studies are currently underway.

  • Nausea and Vomiting? Talk to your doctor about FDA-approved cannabinoid-based prescription drugs that help with side-effects from chemotherapy.

  • How much should you take?

    To avoid taking too much of a medical cannabis product, be aware that different forms of medical cannabis have different onset and duration times. For example, it can take up to three hours for edible medical cannabis to be felt in your system, so don't take more while you're waiting for results. Below is a chart that shows how quickly various products take to work and how long they last.
