Many states are passing laws to allow the use of medical marijuana. The use of medical cannabis is used for a vast majority of medical conditions. Today physicians prescribe medical cannabis for treating diseases and conditions such as chronic pain. Always consult your physician before using any product to treat your condition.

What it is

Marijuana comes from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. This herbal plant contains the chemical delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol commonly referred to as THC, and other compounds. Extracts from the plant contain high amounts of THC.
Many states are now passing laws for use of medical marijuana. Using marijuana for health conditions is not something new. As far back as 2900 BC, the Chinese Emperor Fu His made reference to cannabis as a popular medicine that possessed both ying and yang.
Cannabis is being used and studies for many medical conditions. Below are some of them.

Chronic Pain

A Canadian research team led by Dr. Mark Ware from the Research Institute of McGill University Health Center last year completed a national multicenter study in Montrell, examined the safety of medical cannabis among individual of chronic, non-cancer pain. The study followed 215 adult patients with chronic pain who used medical cannabis and control group of 216 chronic pain patients who did not use cannabis for over one year. The study revealed those who used cannabis had no greater risk of serious adverse events than the control group.

How it works
Cannabis when inhaled will bind to the nerves that regulate pain and block or dampen the body’s response to pain. It will almost immediately relieve pain. It will stimulate appetite.

PTSD

PTSD; Post traumatic stress disorder is a type of an anxiety disorder. It can occur after going an extreme or emotional trauma that involved the threat of injury or death.
A team of researchers including Dr. Raphael Mechoulam who discovered THC in 1964 and contributed mush of the cannabis much of the overall cannabis knowledge. The team recruited ten people who were on stable medication for chronic PTSD. In addition to conventional medicine the team orally administered five milligrams of THC twice daily. The results showed THC was linked with less symptom severity, sleep quality, frequencies of nightmares and PTSD hyperarousal symptoms.

States that have approved medical cannabis for PTSD include New Mexico which was the first state to use it for PTSD, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona and Washington State.

Alzheimer’s disease

Several studies have looked at the effects of medical cannabis for Alzheimer’s. A small study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that small doses of THC can slow production of beta-amyloid proteins believed to be a hallmark characteristic and key contributor to the disease. The researchers noted that the “sets of data strongly agreed that THC could be a potential therapeutic treatment option for Alzheimer’s disease.

Some states have approved the use of medical cannabis for the treatment of Alzheimer’s. These states include Delaware and Arizona.

Sleep Apnea

A study published in the journal of the American Academy of Sleep from researchers at the University Of Illinois Department Of Medicine reported that the use of THC extracts and endocannabinoids induce sleep and improve sleep quality.
Following those findings lead author Dr. David Carley had published the first human trial examining the effects of THC (Dronabinol) on sleep apnea. The results showed an overall reduction of apnea indexes of 32 percent..

RespireRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is currently undergoing Phase 2B Clinical Trial of Dronabinol. The double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial consisting of 120 patients for use in obstructed sleep apnea during 2016. After completion of trial if results are concurrent with the first trial, RespireRX will need to obtain FDA approval to be released to patients. This medicine could be readily available by 2017.

Fractures

A study published last year in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, conducted by researchers at Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University had fond administering cannabidiol; one of the least active compounds in cannabis significantly heals bone fractures of the femora after just eight weeks.

Arthritis

A study published last year in the journal of Rheumatology Dr. Sheng-Ming Dai of China’s Second Military Medical University had found that CB2 receptors are unusually high levels in joint tissues of arthritis patients. Using cannabis was shown to fight inflammation in joints.

Blood Vessels

Dr. François Mach of the University Hospital Geneva, Switzerland and colleagues found that THC combats atherosclerosis in mice. The team administered tiny amounts of pure THC to mice. The THC reduced the progression of blood vessel blockage formation by one-third.

Crohn's disease

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease which causes inflammation in the lining of your digestive tract. It can lead to abdominal pain, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition.
Researchers from Meir Medical Center in Israel studied 21 patients with severe, intractable Crohn’s who did not respond to steroid therapy. Patients were assigned at random to either receiving cannabis twice daily in the form of cigarettes which contained 115 milligrams of THC or a placebo contain cannabis flowers with the THC extracted.
The results revealed five out of 11 subjects who smoked cannabis daily achieved total remission of their disease. They also had greater appetite and sleep patterns. The researchers concluded eight weeks of THC rich cannabis produce significant clinical steroid free benefits.
