What is medical cannabis?

Cannabis is a medicinal plant with dozens of peer-reviewed studies demonstrating its many uses. It is non-toxic, non-addictive, and often works when all other medicines fail. Cannabis may be ingested via pills, ointments, tinctures, edible foods, and via vaporization or smoking.

Patients suffering with HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, cancer and chemotherapy, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and other illnesses find that cannabis relieves their symptoms—sometimes when nothing else will.

Cannabis’s medical applications include:

  • • Relief from nausea & appetite loss
  • • Prevention of blindness by reducing intraocular pressure
  • • Reduction of muscle spasms from MS, ALS & related conditions
  • • Pain relief & replacement of opiates.
