Medical Marijuana and Myasthenia Gravis

While there is currently no cure for myasthenia gravis, treatment can help relieve signs and symptoms, such as weakness of arm or leg muscles, double vision, drooping eyelids, and difficulties with speech, chewing, swallowing and breathing. The disease incidence is usually around three to thirty cases per million per year and continues to rise as a result of increased awareness.

As an alternative remedy, medicinal cannabis is an exceptional form of medicine for patients who suffer from myasthenia gravis. Marijuana has active ingredients that can lead to decreased feelings of stress and anxiety and even chronic pain. This is a great form fo medicine due to the fact that it allows the patient's muscles to relax and function in an appropriate and operational manner.
