Cannabis has made rapid progress in medical applications in the past decade. Its therapeutic benefits extend to a range of physical and mental health concerns.

Elements of cannabis with medicinal properties have been tested for the psychoactive nature of marijuana. Results show that they do not produce a high and are restricted to treating the disease symptoms only.

Cannabis is known for addressing many chronic diseases and has shown remarkable results. It can alleviate chances of HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, cancer and symptoms of many others problems.

Here are some medical problems that cannabis is prescribed for.

  • Multiple Sclerosis

This disease impacts two very crucial components of human physiology: the spine and the brain. Symptoms can differ in nature and intensity. Majorly Multiple Sclerosis impacts balance and vision, and causes spasms and tingling. Multiple Sclerosis Journal has published findings that state cannabis-based substances can alleviate symptoms of pain and spasticity. The curative benefits come with little or no side effects.

  • Spinal Injury

Spinal Injury

Traumatic accidents can injure the spine in ways that adversely affect motor skills. The impact may also result in complete loss of mobility in some parts of the body. Naturally the consequences are extremely painful and disturbing. Researchers from Oxford Centre for Enablement have found that cannabis can help alleviate painful symptoms of the spinal cord injury. To add on, they suggest that marijuana can improve neurogenic symptoms better than other treatments.

  • Spinal Cord Disease

Spinal cord disease refers to any medical problem in the spine that did not occur because of a traumatic incident. Spinal cord diseases include problems like Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida, and Spinal Stenosis. People suffering from these diseases have found comfort in cannabis-use. Because of its analgesic (pain-relieving) properties, it has helped reduce spasticity and pain.

  • Cancer

Cancer is one of the primary causes of deaths in the world! Cannabis can drastically improve the condition of cancer patients by enhancing the quality of life and addressing its symptoms. It helps reduce the severity of weight loss with the help of cannabis-based elements like THC and CBD. They are known for stimulating appetite to combat anorexia and severe weight loss that patients suffer from. Chemotherapy can cause nausea which is also effectively reduced by cannabis as well.

  • Arthritis


Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Psoriatic Arthritis are a few among the 100+ types of arthritis. Known for its pain-relieving quality, cannabis alleviates arthritis induced pain in patients dramatically. Other symptoms include swelling, redness and restricted joint movement. A study concerning the effect of marijuana on rheumatoid arthritis showed that its analgesic abilities helped improve the quality of patients’ lives.
