And, believe it or not, it’s not that hard to qualify for this type of treatment. All you need to do is to find a Colorado cannabis doctor to evaluate you for medical marijuana treatment. This doctor will look over your medical records or will discuss your symptoms and medical history with you, to find out if the use of medical marijuana may benefit you and your medical condition.
When Medical Marijuana Can Help?
Medical marijuana can help people with conditions like epilepsy, glaucoma, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, and many other conditions that may not have responded well to more traditional treatments. Medical marijuana is different than recreational marijuana because it contains more CBD, or cannabidiol, than recreational marijuana. CBD is the ingredient in marijuana that has been shown to be effective in treating these chronic conditions.
On the other hand, recreational marijuana contains less CBD and more THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, than medical marijuana. THC is the ingredient in marijuana that brings on the “high,” but is less effective for relieving symptoms of various illnesses. It’s important to understand that while medical marijuana provides relief and improvement in symptoms of chronic illnesses, it does not make the patient “high” all the time.
