Pennsylvania might approve extra medical marijuana phrases


Since medical marijuana became law in Pennsylvania, people have wondered when the state would consider adding additional conditions to the list of those eligible for treatment in addition to the 21 current chronic diseases the drug treats Cannabis qualified. The Pennsylvania State Medical Marijuana Advisory Board is currently accepting new, research-based petitions on conditions that should be considered for medical marijuana use. You will discuss and vote on these petitions early next year, on February 1, 2019.

What could marijuana treat?

The potential medical uses of marijuana use are extensive, and the drug has been used illegally for years to treat various diseases such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, insomnia, and more.

Many people practice self-medication with marijuana to deal with anxiety and depression. In the short term, self-reported levels of anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses have decreased, but not enough studies have been completed to provide conclusive evidence of the effectiveness of medical marijuana for long-term treatment of these diseases.

Although the effects of long-term efficacy are unknown, medical marijuana is known to be able to provide short-term support to people. When patients come to doctors or clinics for help with such a condition, it can become frustrating for doctors to turn them away because they instinctively want to help patients but cannot in these cases.

What we would like to see has been added to the list

Due to the limited list of disorders, most prescriptions currently go to patients living with chronic pain or post-traumatic stress disorder. We love being able to help these patients and we want to be able to help more. At the Natural way medicineWe believe that adding anxiety, depression, ADHD, and physical conditions like migraines and Lyme disease to the approved list could help Pennsylvanians improve their quality of life dramatically.

Let your voice be heard!

Here, at Natural way medicineWe believe that the Medical Marijuana Advisory Board should hear your voice and understand the tremendous utility of marijuana in the treatment of a range of diseases. We’ve only just scratched the surface here in Keystone State, and we’d love to treat more people like you.
