What is medicinal marijuana? Medicinal marijuana has an anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, sedative, tonic and analgesic effect. On the one hand, marijuana is psychologically addictive (not physically), and on the other hand, the effects of medical marijuana can help in the treatment of many diseases. What exactly does medicinal marijuana have? Where can we buy it? What is its price? We’ll know everything in a moment.
What is medicinal marijuana?
Medicinal marijuana is ordinary marijuana that is used to treat or minimize disease. Medicinal marijuana, unlike the one you can buy in the city, contains the right amount of cannabinoids. We don’t have to worry about its composition. It is one hundred percent safe.
In no case does it contain fertilizers, admixtures or poisonous substances. It is created in sterile conditions under strict laboratory control.
Medicinal marijuana in our country is sold as a prescription drug. This means that the pharmacist is responsible for preparing the preparation based on the prescription written by the doctor.
Where to buy medicinal marijuana?
We must be aware that medicinal marijuana has been legal in our country since November 1, 2017. However, not on that date did it reach pharmacies. Any doctor can write a prescription for marijuana, but currently there are still few doctors who have experience in treating marijuana.
We already know that medical marijuana is sold in Poland as a prescription drug. The pharmacist prepares the preparation based on a prescription written by a doctor.
How much does medical marijuana cost and how does it work?
Medical marijuana currently costs PLN 65 per gram. It is estimated that a monthly treatment can cost between one thousand and two thousand zlotys. The current price, however, may be lower when it reaches our pharmacies from Denmark (currently it is imported from Canada).
Medicinal marijuana inhibits many reactions that occur in our body.
It has been proven that marijuana, firstly, relieves pain receptors not related to cancer, and secondly, neuropathic pain. Its analgesic effect is compared to the action of drugs from the second step of the analgesic ladder, which includes substances such as tramadol or codeine.
Thanks to medicinal marijuana, it is possible to reduce the administration of opioids in large doses. In the case of neuropathic pain, medical marijuana is inferior to the most effective tricyclic antidepressants, but its effectiveness is compared to the same level of gabapentin.
Medicinal marijuana characters
Medicinal marijuana is available in various forms. Suppositories and tablets are very popular. These forms are ideal forms for adults. Oil is great for younger patients. Drought is the most popular. How to take it? Of course, the vaporizer is probably the most effective in treatment.
What is a vaporizer? It is a device that heats the herb to a very high temperature. The temperature is about twenty degrees Celsius. This makes it ideal for inhalation.
How can medicinal marijuana help?
Many people still have doubts about the use of marijuana. Some people even say that it doesn’t help. People who think this way must realize that they are wrong. Marijuana is ideal for many diseases and conditions. What are these ailments? It’s definitely drug-resistant epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
In addition, we cannot forget about cancer pain, chronic neuropathic pain, glaucoma, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease or anorexia. Other diseases and ailments that medicinal marijuana will certainly help us with are AIDS, inflammatory bowel diseases, hepatitis C, post-traumatic stress disorder, Crohn’s disease or Tourette’s syndrome.
Finally, let’s answer the question of whether medical marijuana can make us addicted? In fact, medicinal marijuana works very similarly to regular marijuana. Abusing it can lead to the avolutionary syndrome, i.e. a state in which a person becomes involuntary. Hashish is produced from the same plant, so it is already a hard drug.
On the other hand, if medicinal marijuana is taken for therapeutic purposes rather than for recreational purposes, the attitude towards the substance taken in this way can significantly reduce the risk of addiction itself. As you can see in the picture above, there is really nothing to be afraid of.
If we are struggling with the diseases described above, it is really worth talking to your doctor about the benefits of this solution. Let’s talk about it and have a complete solution. You will surely be pleased with the results. Most importantly, the effects are noticeable very quickly. You don’t have to wait weeks or months for them. Let’s not get tired any longer and we will fight to return to normal.
