There is growing evidence that medical cannabis (or medical marijuana as it is also known) can be a valid treatment alternative for a number of chronic conditions. It may help with the management of symptoms that have not responded to conventional therapies, due to its interaction with our natural endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate functions, such as sleep, pain, mood, appetite, and memory. If you are suffering from a chronic condition and are looking to evaluate alternative treatments, medical cannabis could be an option for you.
To date, more than 50,000 patients have been approved for medical cannabis treatment in Australia. Treatment conditions are wide reaching and now include over 30 chronic conditions, such as chronic pain, neuropathic pain, cancer, anxiety, epilepsy, and insomnia. These large categories include highly prevalent ailments such as back pain, neck pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and depression. The clinical body of evidence is growing and the regulatory process has been streamlined to reduce barriers for doctors to prescribe.
We understand that discussing alternative treatment options with your doctor is not always an easy conversation.
