A primary case of Raynaud’s disease occurs on its own. The cause of this specific condition has not yet been identified but there is research currently being conducted to gather a better idea. There is also another form of Raynaud’s, secondary Raynaud’s, which is a form of this condition that is caused by injuries, other diseases or certain medicines that one may have ingested. Those who are located in colder climates are more likely to develop Raynaud’s disease. This condition is also more common in women, people with a family history of the condition and those who are over the age of thirty.
Medical marijuana is a great reducer of the symptoms that are associated with this particular condition. Medical marijuana helps maintain great blood flow to the hands and dilates small arteries, otherwise known as blood vessels. This treatment option also relieves stress, which is a trigger to constrict blood flow and can relieve pain.
