Medical marijuana uses the marijuana plant, or chemicals in it, to treat diseases and/or conditions. The plant contains chemicals called cannabinoids and each one affects the body differently. The two main cannabinoids in medical marijuana are THC and CBD.
Medical marijuana can be used for any condition that is deemed to be appropriate by a medical doctor or a medical marijuana professional such as a nurse practitioner. On our Medical Conditions page, there is an alphabetized list of the most common conditions, for which medical marijuana can be useful.
Research has shown that medical marijuana can help with substance abuse disorders, mental health issues (such as depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD), chronic pain, arthritis, insomnia and other sleep issues, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, cancer, glaucoma, epilepsy/seizure disorders, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative disease, eating disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, women’s issues (such as PMS/PMDD) and many other medical conditions.
