What Conditions Does Medical Cannabis Help?
Diseases marijuana helps control, or alleviate symptoms of is an ever-expanding list. This is, in part, due to our juvenile understanding of how specific cannabinoids found in marijuana affect the body and mind. We do know that the body is already equipped with a receptor system for cannabinoids: The endocannabinoid system. In the brain, the ECS is leveraged by the body to regulate pleasure sensory, appetite, mood, short-term memory and coordination. In other regions of the body, the ECS connects into the immune and gastrointestinal system, where it impacts manifestations such as pain and inflammation. Currently, patients have found that marijuana helps with conditions such as glaucoma, cancer, Parkinson’s disease and more.
