Many patients who suffer from medical conditions that don’t respond quickly to treatment, or that cause them troublesome symptoms over time become frustrated and feel hopeless when they can’t find help. For these patients, it’s important to know that a great deal of research has been done on the use of medical marijuana as an alternative medical treatment for some conditions. The research shows that medical marijuana can be very effective for the relief of symptoms, as well as for actual improvement in some of the disease conditions. If you’re suffering from a long-term medical condition, you should learn more about how getting a Colorado marijuana license, or medical marijuana card (also known as a “Red Card”) may be a great choice for you.
Conditions Treated by Medical Marijuana
Research has shown medical marijuana to be effective in relieving the symptoms of many different chronic conditions. A great deal of human brain function still remains a mystery to scientists even today, and diseases such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s dementia are not fully understood. However, it’s been noted that medical marijuana is effective in reducing the number of seizures that a patient with epilepsy may experience, and the tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, found in marijuana is known to remove the amyloid-beta protein in the brain that is responsible for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
But that’s not all of the benefits of this type of treatment. Medical marijuana also provides relief for inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. It is also effective for relieving anxiety and symptoms of PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder that is experienced by many military veterans and law enforcement personnel who have experienced extreme stress and mental anxiety on the job.
