Why Medical Marijuana?

It can help with

Chronic Pain

Patients report experiencing significant relief from pain resulting from a variety of causes with medical marijuana. There also is the potential for patients to decrease narcotic usage and thus reduced unwanted pain medication side effects.

Cancer

Potential benefits include reduced cancer related pain, chemotherapy/radiation induced nausea, loss of appetite and sleep disturbances.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Medical marijuana has been reported to decrease anxiety levels, sleep difficulties and the severity of nightmares.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease / Crohn's Disease

Patients have found medical marijuana eases IBD related pain, limits the frequency of diarrhea, and can help patients to gain weight. 

      Anxiety

Patients report that medical marijuana is highly effective in relieving their symptoms of anxiety.

Glaucoma

Medical marijuana may help to lower eye pressure which can help to decrease the blinding effects of glaucoma.
