Benefits of Medical Marijuana
Medical uses of cannabis include both studied and approved uses and off-label uses. In a recent research survey, the most common reasons people use medical marijuana are for
- muscle spasticity
- inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease.
More research has been conducted on the compound CBD. Medical CBD is anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, neuroprotective, and anxiolytic, antipsychotic, and anti-emetic. The CBD compound in medical marijuana appears to be neuroprotective in Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease, fetal hypoxia, and other neurodegenerative conditions and movement disorders.
Grow Your Own Medical Marijuana Plants
Maine has had medical marijuana laws on the books since 1999. That has given the state plenty of time to get it right! As a medical cannabis patient, you have the right to grow up to six flowering plants for personal use.
