Medical Marijuana and Nail-Patella Syndrome

Symptoms of this specific condition may result in the skeletal structures of individuals to become pronounced with noticeable deformities. The hallmark features of this syndrome are poorly developed fingernails, toenails, and patellae or kneecaps. In certain cases, this disease causes the affected person to have either no thumbnails or a small piece of thumbnail on the edge of the thumb. Other commonly-found abnormalities of this condition include elbow deformalities, abnormally shaped pelvic bones and kidney or renal disease.

Medical marijuana is a great treatment option for individuals who greatly suffer from nail-patella syndrome. Recent evidence has even shown that glaucoma is a major component of this syndrome. When medical marijuana is used as a treatment option, patients experience reduced bouts of pain, no signs of nausea, no severe muscle spasms and feel more active in order to life out their life to its fullest extent.
