Title: Medical Marijuana: An Overview


1
Medical Marijuana An Overview
2
A quick Google search, weed in San Francisco, for
example, is enough to indicate how much medical
marijuana has been appreciated in the last couple
of decades. In reality, after a long battle, it
is now easier to get marijuana for medical
purpose. Although medical marijuana laws differ
greatly from state to state, however, one common
thing that they share is the legalization of this
medical herb.
3
According to several reports, it is believed that
the legalization of medical marijuana has allowed
many patients with severe health problems to get
a safe and effective therapy. However, there are
masses, who are still not convinced and they keep
opposing the use of this highly beneficial herb.
They say that the legalization of medical
marijuana makes it easier for individuals to get
it for recreational purposes. This is not true at
all!
4
Today, medical marijuana is considered as an
effective treatment to alleviate several severe
medical conditions, such as chronic pain, nerve
pain, muscle spasms, glaucoma, seizures,
posttraumatic stress disorder and so on Across
the U.S., every state with medical marijuana laws
has a list of its own that consists of approved
medical conditions.
MMJ helps in severe medical conditions
5
In a state that allows the use medical marijuana
to alleviate medical conditions, one is required
to obtain an MMJ card that certifies its use for
medical purpose.
However, before providing a state-issued
identification card or MMJ card, the MMJ doctor
needs to examine the medical condition of the
patient. If the medical condition falls under the
category of approved medical conditions, then
only the patient is eligible to obtain an MMJ
card.

Methods to Consume Medical Marijuana
There are several methods to consume medical
marijuana. Besides smoking, it can be brewed as
tea, or mixed into foods. Dosing of medical
marijuana is not straightforward and it actually
depends upon the patient how he wishes to consume
it. However, one thing that every patient needs
to make sure that they don't consume more than
the prescribed amount of medical marijuana
7
If consumed more than the prescribed amount, then
the patient is likely to experience several
short-term side effects, including dizziness,
nausea, dry mouth, euphoria, confusion, and
sedation. A patient is recommended to talk to
his MMJ doctor, if he has any questions about the
use of medical marijuana. Avoid experimenting, as
marijuana may have potential risks. Moreover,
regular smoking of weed or marijuana can increase
the risk of lung infections and addicting to it
can interfere with work, school, and even
relationships.

An MMJ treatement should never be prescribed to
children below 14, expectant mothers, and heart
patients.
