It’s Not About the High…
Using medicinal cannabis does not have to be what you experienced in college. It can be, if you choose to use high doses of THC dominant strains, but at low to moderate doses, it’s an amazing regulator of neuropathic pain, inflammation, mood, and spasticity. Cannabis promotes anti-tumor activity, modulates pancreatic and thyroid function, and is a safe and effective treatment for arthritis, neck and back pain, neuropathy, muscle spasms, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. These are just a few of the benefits patients experience without the harmful side effects of often-used pharmaceuticals.
