Medical Marijuana has many benefits but the stigma surrounding the usage of this beneficial plant can make people hesitate from trying this potent alternative medical compound. Over-usage of Opioid medications and other anti-inflammatory prescriptions have caused serious problems for the health system in America, and many people struggle with the various side effects of common medicines that are used today.

Among the concerns is drug dependency and over-utilization of these commonly prescribed medications for pain relief and the fact that they only provide temporary results. True healing requires us to consider the etiology and cause of the symptom manifestation and find a solution to remove or change the environment that leads to disease. Some diseases with genetic predisposition are even harder to heal.

Along with changes in our diet and adding exercise to our daily routine, cannabis or medical marijuana can help us heal. The first step to healing is to schedule an appointment with a medical professional who understands these facts and offers a comprehensive solution to the patient’s problems.

How Medical Marijuana Works

Major compounds found in the cannabis plant include (THC) Tetrahydrocannabinol and (CBD) Cannabidiol. These compounds mimic the actions of our body’s own endogenous molecules that are produced by our brain, our gut and our immune system to name a few. These natural chemicals affect thinking, pleasure, mood, memory, concentration, immunity and motor and sensory functions.

In simple terms, marijuana can help to enhance the effect of pre-existing chemicals in the body that helps relieve symptoms that can cause pain and inflammation.

Medical marijuana focuses on using the specific components that do not cause the psychoactive effects resulting from recreational use. One such component CBD, is a compound in the marijuana plant that provides medical benefits without causing many psychoactive effects.

Benefits of Medical Marijuana

What Can Medical Marijuana Help With

There are a variety of physical and mental health issues that medical marijuana can help treat and its use under professional supervision can greatly benefit the patient. Conditions that qualify for compassionate use of medical marijuana are listed here.

It is important to know that while medical marijuana cannot help heal every symptom under the sun, it has many properties that can relieve stress, decrease pain and inflammation and improve symptoms of many ailments, thus making traditional treatments easier and more manageable. Patients seeking medical marijuana treatments strive for solutions that are more wholesome and inclusive, combining alternative methods of healing with modern-day medical and surgical techniques.

Is medical marijuana safe to use?

Yes, certified cannabis doctors teach patients and counsel them about plant medicine. During initial certification appointments, patients are educated on usage and dosing. Most patients find the experience helpful.

How will I take medical marijuana as a treatment?

There are several possible ways to consume medical marijuana, including:

· Smokable products

· Vaporize and inhalation techniques

· Use of a lotion or cream on the skin

· Edibles

· Placing a few drops of liquid medicine under the tongue

During an appointment, a doctor will go over all potential options and determine which one works best for you.

Are there any side effects from using medical marijuana?

Side effects are minimal to none. We help from their doctors, patients understand the dosing and usage instructions and most patients report many positive changes.

How long will the medical marijuana treatment last?

Medical marijuana or medical cannabis is not a quick fix. Plant medicine takes time, which is why certifications are for 210 days. During this time period, with regular follow-up appointments, dedicated and patient patients improve and get healthier. Incorporating lifestyle changes also, like a plant-based diet and a moderate exercise regimen will overall provide long-term help.

Through our ColoWell America practice, we share our experiences with all patients to help them reach their goals for a holistic path to health and exercise. Many patients come to us wanting to reduce weight, eat better, and decrease their medications or replace them with natural options. Two primary resolutions we provide, in addition to medical treatment options, are: FIBER education and the FIVE RITES, a meditative exercise.

We want all of our patients to eat insoluble fiber, like ground flaxseed, just 1-2 tablespoons per day, with cereal, a shake, salad or anything you’d like. This type of fiber scrubs the colon clean and encourages the gut biome to grow health bacteria. This helps build natural immunity and moves the bowels healthily. Proper ground fiber in the diet may even promote weight loss.

As for the Five Rites exercise, as defined in the book by Peter Kelder, The Fountain of Youth, this knowledge in practice can change your life, giving you the opportunity to breathe, focus and work-out every part of the body in the comfort of home in 20 minutes a day.
