Severe chronic pain is often the result of other conditions or treatments of conditions, such as chemotherapy treatment for cancer, and can be both debilitating and exhausting and many times can lead to chronic depression. While pharmaceutical drugs are available to combat pain and depression, they can be highly addictive and can often cause side effects that are just as unpleasant. The use of medical marijuana in Colorado patients suffering from severe chronic pain has shown in multiple studies to lift moods of depression and reduce or even sometimes completely alleviate pain symptoms without drugs.
Known as a neurological condition that appears in the form of seizures, epilepsy is a condition which affects the nervous system. Although seizures can also be caused by an injury to the brain or through genetic inheritance, epilepsy related seizures generally have no known cause. Colorado medical marijuana patients may be able to control seizures through the use of the drug with fewer or no side effects generally experienced by the use of traditional medicine. Because marijuana produces a calming effect on the body, the nervous system is less likely to cause seizures. Patients who use medical marijuana for epileptic seizures report fewer instances of seizures with regular use
One of the most common side effects in cancer patients tends to be nausea as a result of chemotherapy treatment, and for many patients in Colorado, medical marijuana use is an effective tool in reducing bouts of severe nausea. For those patients who are unable to keep medication down, the inhalation of the cannabinoid drug reverses the nausea effects caused by chemotherapy treatment, as well as easing anxiety and pain related to treatment. Medical marijuana has also been found to stimulate appetite, which is effective for cancer patients who, due to nausea, have been unable to eat and are experiencing treatment-related weight loss.
Glaucoma is a condition that is caused by increased eye pressure, resulting in damage to the optic nerve and can cause eventual blindness. For glaucoma patients in Colorado, marijuana use may be an effective alternative to surgery. Medical marijuana use reduces pressure immediately in the eyes and the effects can last up to four or five hours. While medical marijuana will have varying degrees of effect in patients with glaucoma, adding marijuana to a treatment regimen may allow patients a secondary source of relief and perhaps eliminate the need for surgery.
Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is a disease that attacks the central nervous system, causing severe pain, tremors, and loss of many functions. MS attacks nearly 350,000 people in the U.S. alone, and for patients suffering from MS in Colorado, marijuana can provide a great deal of symptom relief. While medical marijuana cannot relieve symptoms completely, it can be highly effective in improving eyesight, appetite, speech and balance. Medical marijuana also helps reduce chronic pain, tremors and muscle spasms, calming the nervous system and offering some patients the ability to walk unassisted by walkers or wheelchairs. At CTS we can set you an appointment with a medical marijuana recommending physician practicing in Colorado.
More than 31 million Americans suffer from arthritis. There are two common types of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, but both affect the joints, causing pain and swelling, and limiting movement.

Cannabis has a demonstrated ability to improve mobility and reduce morning stiffness and inflammation.
