Medical Marijuana and Cannabis have been around for many thousands of years. The Chinese emperor Shen-nung in his medical book “Pen-ts’ao Ching”, he descrived various medical uses that marijuana aided. Cannabis was praised as a healing plant in India before the 8th century A.D. In the present, its main uses include treatment of pain, nausea, lack of appetite, sleeping disorders, auto-immune diseases (MS) and glaucoma.

How does medical marijuana work?
The active components of cannabis (cannabinoids) mimic the effects of natural chemicals (endocannabinoids) that occur in the human body and brain. These chemicals act as signals that help control how the body functions. A variety of different symptoms and diseases respond to medical marijuana use. www.NORML.org for more information.

Why medical marijuana instead of other medications?
For many patients, traditional medications do work well and these patients do not require or desire medical marijuana. However, for a significant number of patients, including patients suffering from AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain among others, traditional medications do not provide symptomatic relief as effectively as medicinal cannabis. These patients should not be branded as criminals or forced to suffer needlessly. Cannabis has been used as a medicine for thousands of years in China, India, and many other parts of the world.
