Medical marijuana treatment options include smoking marijuana, eating marijuana, and using marijuana-infused oils or tinctures. Smoking marijuana is the most common method of administration. Smoking marijuana can be addictive and is not recommended.
Marijuana-infused oils are also available in liquid form. These oils are made by soaking marijuana flowers in oil and then heating them. This process extracts the active ingredients from the flowers. The resulting oil is then strained, filtered, and bottled. Marijuana-infused oils are generally not recommended for children because they may contain high levels of THC, which can be toxic in large doses.
Marijuana-based tinctures are also available in liquid form and are made by soaking marijuana flowers or leaves in alcohol. Alcohol is added until the flowers or leaves become very wet and then the mixture is heated. The resulting tincture is strained and bottled. Marijuana-infusion tinctures are generally not recommended.
A number of studies have shown that marijuana has medicinal properties. It may help to relieve pain and nausea caused by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It may also reduce the side effects of some medications, such as steroids, anti-seizure drugs, and anti-hypertensive drugs. Marijuana may also be helpful in treating glaucoma and nausea associated with AIDS.
Medical marijuana treatment has been controversial in the United States for decades. Many people are concerned about the potential health risks of marijuana, especially when smoked. Marijuana may cause lung cancer, emphysema, and heart disease. Some people have also reported psychotic symptoms after smoking marijuana. However, many medical experts believe that these risks are minimal, and that marijuana is safer than many prescription drugs.
Because of the legal restrictions on marijuana in the United States, it is difficult to conduct scientific research on its medical uses. Most research on marijuana has been conducted in Europe. European researchers have found that marijuana may be effective in treating nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy and radiation therapy. In addition, prescribed medical marijuana may be helpful in reducing the pain and spasms caused by multiple sclerosis and in treating muscle spasms and tremors associated with Parkinson's disease.
Some medical experts believe that marijuana may be helpful in treating chronic pain and muscle spasms caused by AIDS. However, there is little evidence to support this belief. Some research has also suggested that marijuana may help to improve memory and concentration in older adults.
Medical marijuana treatment may also be useful in treating certain types of arthritis. In one study, marijuana was found to be more effective than aspirin in relieving the pain and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Another study showed that marijuana helped to relieve pain and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis.
Some studies suggest that marijuana may help to relieve anxiety, depression, and insomnia. However, other studies have failed to show any significant benefits of marijuana.
