Medical marijuana is a viable treatment for pain management and a qualified alternative to opiods. Patients with history of persistent muscle spasms, seizures or diagnosed with cancer or any other terminal diseases are eligible to receive a prescription for medical marijuana in the state of Florida.
Cannabinoids interact with your body by naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. Those receptors are located on the liver, immune system, brain, kidneys, and lungs. The therapeutic effects of marijuana occur when a cannabinoid activates a cannabinoid receptor, treating a number of advanced medical issues.
Patients with any of the following conditions may potentially qualify for medical marijuana: chronic seizures, terminal illness, chronic severe muscle spasms and cancer. Last November 2016 voters in Florida decided to allow the use of medical marijuana available to anyone who is suffering from a debilitating disease as chronic pain, HIV, post-traumatic stress disorder, glaucoma, Parkison’s disease and others. This approval will benefit a wider spectrum of patients.
