What Is Medical Marijuana?
With a reputation that often precedes itself, marijuana has taken a while to get to where it is now. Now that more than 30 states have legalized it for medical use, the benefits of marijuana have been coming out at a steady rate for the last two decades. As recreational marijuana also becomes legalized in more states, the general acceptance of cannabis has also become widespread. This has allowed for greater tolerance and information in the way of medical, as any skepticism behind it has started to lessen.
As the acceptance grows, more stories and evidence of medical marijuana’s effectiveness have come to light. There are plenty of anecdotes and stories about people who found true relief in medical marijuana, some of them reaching a wide audience and creating more buzz for the benefits. But there have also been medical research and studies that have helped show how effective medical marijuana is for many patients. A combination of personal stories and scientific facts has helped medical marijuana gain its legitimacy.
Medical Marijuana Products
There is a wide variety of medical marijuana products, which is something some people may not know about. Marijuana has such a strong association with smoking that many think that’s all you can do with cannabis. However, it’s a versatile plant, which means there are versatile medicine options for patients.
You can get your medical marijuana in capsules, which provides a user with a familiar look and routine for their medicine. Another oral ingestion method is tinctures, which use cannabis oil for dropping underneath the tongue. These same oils can be applied to specific parts of the skin, as can creams, which are often used for this reason, such as applying to a physical injury.
Related to marijuana oil is vaporizers, which use extracted oil to create water vapor. This vapor is inhaled and released, the same way as smokable marijuana is. The difference is that vaping is a bit more accepted, as it is more widely available than the dry flower. It’s also easy to bring with you and can sometimes be used indoors.
Medical Marijuana for Epilepsy
Epileptic seizures affect people in different ways and with different levels of extremity. Some people are not too greatly affected by their condition, while others have serious spasms which can be dangerous for the individual.
Medical marijuana has proven itself to be effective for those with epilepsy. The effects of medical marijuana will always differ between patients, but it has been shown that it can be very helpful to patients. There have been cases where traditional forms of medicine, such as prescription pills, were ineffective or harmful to patients of epilepsy.
Content high in CBD has proven effective for treating those with epilepsy, especially since the psychoactive elements of THC are not needed. While medical marijuana may not be for everyone, it has been shown to be just as effective as traditional drugs for treating epileptic seizures. That said, some patients might be more receptive to medical marijuana products, which is why having the alternative is so important. As long as the products can provide positive effects for the patient, they can be highly recommended and healthy for them.
Getting Your MMJ Card
While it may not always look like it, getting your MMJ card is a fairly straightforward process. It involves checking a list, making an appointment, speaking with a doctor, and then applying for the card. Compared to how it used to be, it has never been easier to get your MMJ card.
You will first want to make sure you qualify, and you can very easily find conditions that permit you a recommendation. Some people can think they are not able to get evaluated because they are not sure that they qualify. Rest assured, you can still make an appointment and see a licensed physician even if you’re not too sure. After all, the doctor will be the one making the recommendation.
You can speak with a doctor either in person, over the phone, or via video chat. In this way, getting your recommendation can be done comfortably within the confines of your own home. Once you have gotten your recommendation, you will be able to register with the New York Department of Health for an MMJ card. Once it arrives (within a week or so), you can purchase medical marijuana at state dispensaries.
