Patients with moderate to severe chronic pain have traditionally had two choices from conventional Western medicine. The first option may be prescription medications like opioids or NSAIDs. However, these may come with side-effects, risk of addiction, and the potential for overdose. The other option left patients to remedy their own symptoms without the use of prescription pain relievers.
That is really no choice at all because both options can lead to intolerable chronic pain and other potentially harmful side effects. Pain levels can make it difficult to work, enjoy recreation, sleep, and perform activities of daily living. Permanent residents of Washington have a new option that is natural with zero-risk for overdose. It can be effective for the relief of many debilitating health symptoms.
Medical cannabis has been documented as a healing plant used for medicinal purposes for over 5,000 years. The psychoactive elements of medical cannabis (THC) help stimulate the endocannabinoid system in the body. Different strains of medical marijuana have been beneficial for some patients for moderate to severe pain management, creating a bridge between the body and the mind that can have many wellness benefits.
