Medical Marijuana Explained
What is Medical Marijuana?
Cannabis is medicinal due to its cannabinoids, chemical compounds found naturally in the plant. Medical marijuana is medicine derived from the cannabis plant that is used to treat specific conditions and diseases.
States with medical marijuana programs have passed legislation through their government to legalize the use of cannabis for medicinal use. These states have unique rules about who can grow, sell, and use medical cannabis.
Each state runs its medical marijuana program independently. Everything from the formats of cannabis that qualified patients can consume to the number of cannabis plants patients can grow at home is governed by the state legislature.
In many states where marijuana is recreationally legal, there are still programs exclusive to medical marijuana patients that provide them with access to higher potency products, greater cultivation allowances, and the ability to purchase more cannabis at one time.
Qualifying conditions are the diagnosable conditions that patients may seek medical marijuana to help treat. Each state has a different list of qualifying conditions. The following conditions are among the most commonly approved for use of medical cannabis.
- Cancer / Chemotherapy
- Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
- HIV / AIDS
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Neurodegenerative Diseases (Lou Gehrig’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, Glaucoma & Alzheimer’s)

A couple weeks before my plantar fasciitis surgery, Karen devised a course of treatment for me involving THC tincture and CBD balm. The improvement is stunning, and there’s just a chance that I will be able to dodge having surgery on my foot. Thanks Senior-High, for your sage advice.
Thank you so much for recommending Papa & Barkley Relief Balm. I have been using it on my knee to help my arthritis. It works great and I am able to enjoy my yoga classes much more. I also have begun using it on my left hip where I have a torn tendon and it is helping as well.
