Medical Cannabis: Plant-Based Medicine with Therapeutic Benefits Chronic Pain MS Seizures & Crohn’s
Updated: Jul 29
Medical cannabis, also known as medical marijuana, is a plant-based medicine that is used to treat a variety of conditions and diseases.
Derived from the Cannabis sativa plant.
Contains over 100 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids.
The two most well-known cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
THC is the psychoactive compound that is responsible for the plant's psychoactive effects.
CBD is non-psychoactive and is thought to have medicinal properties.
In the United States, the use of medical cannabis is a controversial and highly debated topic.
While some states have legalized the use of medical cannabis, it remains illegal at the federal level. This has made it difficult for researchers to study the potential therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis and has limited its availability to patients.
Despite these challenges, there has been a growing body of research on the potential therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis in the United States.
Some of the conditions that have been studied include:
Chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and Crohn's disease.
One of the most well-known and well-studied potential therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis is its ability to alleviate chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a common problem that affects millions of people in the United States and can have a significant impact on quality of life. Medical cannabis has been shown to be effective in reducing chronic pain in some individuals, particularly those who have not responded to other forms of treatment. In a review of 29 studies, researchers found that medical cannabis was associated with significant reductions in chronic pain, with an average reduction of 30%.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system.
It can cause a wide range of symptoms, including muscle spasms, tremors, and difficulty walking.
Medical cannabis has been shown to be effective in reducing muscle spasms and tremors in individuals with MS. A study of 572 patients with MS found that those who used medical cannabis had a reduction in muscle spasms and tremors of almost 50%.
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that is characterized by seizures.
It can be a challenging condition to manage, and some individuals with epilepsy do not respond to traditional treatments.
Medical cannabis has been shown to be effective in reducing the frequency and severity of seizures in some individuals with epilepsy. A review of 19 studies found that medical cannabis was associated with a reduction in seizure frequency of an average of 50%.
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss.
Medical cannabis has been shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms of Crohn's disease in some individuals.
A study of 21 patients with Crohn's disease found that those who used medical cannabis had a significant reduction in their symptoms, including abdominal pain and diarrhea.
While the research on the therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis is promising, it is important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the potential risks and benefits of this treatment. It is also important to note that medical cannabis is not a one-size-fits-all treatment, and what works for one person may not work for another.
However, it is important to carefully consider the potential risks and work with a healthcare provider. Speak with an OMNI Medical Services professional today.
