Marijuana has been used to help pain for hundreds of years. Both the States of Pennsylvania and Ohio will allow patients to use Medical Marijuana if they suffer from Chronic Pain (pain lasting longer than 90 days.) Studies have shown marijuana to be as effective, if not more effective with less side effects, than traditional pharmaceuticals. Some physicians claim they have been able to reduce, if not completely eliminate, patients pharmaceuticals with cannabis.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues. Researchers believe that Fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain and spinal cord process painful and non-painful signals.
Medical Marijuana can help treat Glaucoma because MMJ lowers intraocular pressure. Cannabinoid receptors are myriad in ocular tissue, and they play a large role in pressure reduction. Because intraocular pressure causes the painful symptoms as well as long-term eye damage associated with glaucoma, lowering IOP by ingesting medical marijuana helps glaucoma patients to feel more comfortable and to stave off long-term sight loss.
