Marijuana for recreational use has become legal in many states, and for this reason you may be wondering why people bother to go to the trouble of qualifying for medical marijuana. There are several reasons why choosing medical marijuana is a good idea if you qualify for this type of treatment. First of all, buying medical marijuana is cheaper than buying other places, because you pay lower taxes on it. Secondly, the conditions under which medical marijuana is grown are much more controlled than they are for recreational marijuana. The final product that you get is more potent and nearly always of better quality. Thirdly, there are higher quantity restrictions on medical marijuana. In other words, you will be allowed to buy more to apply towards your medical treatment.
Alternative to Narcotics for Pain Control
With the current opioid crisis in the U.S., patients who have chronic medical conditions or who deal with some sort of chronic pain may have difficulty getting the help they need for pain relief. Furthermore, opioids and narcotics for pain relief are addictive, and may cause more side effects and symptoms than the condition itself.
Medical marijuana is often an effective alternative to narcotics for pain control and is legal and relatively easy to get. All you need is to be evaluated by a licensed physician who is qualified to assess whether or not you have a condition that may benefit from the use of medical marijuana. There are many such conditions, from neurological like MS or epilepsy to various kinds of arthritis. You may find that medical marijuana is a cheaper and more effective way to find relief.
