Some Great Medical Marijuana Strains
I will recommend some good common strains for her ailments, high in CBD’s. Marijuana high in CBD has been proven to help with Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis as a natural type of pain relief. Using marijuana, people with forms of arthritis are actually able to use far less non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medications that have the potential to be dangerous, harmful, and unsafe. Marijuana for use in relieving the pain associated with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis has been proven to be effective and successful.
Chronic Pain & Marijuana Therapy
Marijuana can be a helpful pain killer and it even helps with rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. Neuropathy, a nerve damage contracted from certain diseases or disorders, is found in 60 to 70 percent of all people with diabetes. More specifically, there are four types of diabetes-related neuropathy:
peripheral (located in the hands, arms, legs and feet), autonomic (which affects the nerves that control blood glucose levels, blood pressure, and the heart), focal (specific nerve damage to the head, torso, and leg), and proximal (sometimes called diabetic amyotrophy and usually centralized on one side of the body in the hips, thighs, and buttocks). Vaporized cannabis reduces pain and slow the advancing nerve damage of all four types of neuropathy. In some types, there was more than a 30 percent improvement without any significant impact on daily functioning or cognitive abilities. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis reported less pain, more sleep, and reduced inflammation when taking marijuana, it relieves arthritis discomfort.
Cannabis Is Great For Pain And Inflammation
Cannabis is especially useful for helping arthritis patients wean themselves off serious pharmaceutical drugs that, in the long term, may cause more problems than they solve. For patients who must continue with pharmaceutical treatments, marijuana often eases the negative side effects of these drugs, such as withdrawal. Cannabis has a demonstrated ability to improve mobility and reduce morning stiffness and inflammation. It’s not going to cure the disease, but it will do a lot to alleviate the pain and suffering of people with rheumatoid arthritis. Cannabis is less harmful than other available painkillers. Glaucoma is another complication that can arise with diabetes. Research has already shown medical marijuana to be effective in treating not only diabetes, but also some, if not all, of its possible complications.
