Cannabis is a natural remedy that has been used to relieve various symptoms and conditions for centuries. Once widely recognized for its amazing potential, marijuana use has been a taboo subject shrouded in controversy for many people since it was made illegal. That is, until recently. Well over half the country has now voted for legalizing the use of medical marijuana (on the state level) in the past decade alone. And Florida residents have now added their state as the 29th name on that list. This is welcome news to residents that live in “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown” and are interested in meeting with a nearby The Villages medical marijuana doctor.

The Villages Medical Marijuana Doctor | Chronic Pain Management
Chronic pain is always uncomfortable, often debilitating, and significantly reduces a person’s quality of life. Using cannabis to relieve chronic pain is one of the most common reasons people are even interested in medical marijuana. This is especially true with the increasing number of opiate and opioid-related overdoses and deaths over the past two decades.
There were a staggering 7,300+ opiate and opioid-related deaths in the state of Florida just last year. This unnerving statistic has been unfortunately trending upwards and shows very little signs of slowing. The number of options for chronic pain relief has been limited for patients that deal with it. Medical marijuana finally gives them a much needed alternative solution that is recommended by doctors, is both non-addictive and non-lethal, and most importantly works.
The Villages Medical Marijuana Doctor | Other Qualifying Conditions
Using cannabis to relieve chronic pain is just one of its many, many medicinal applications. There are numerous other conditions that are also relieved by the active chemicals in marijuana. There are even low-THC options (see CBD) available that provide even more relief to patients dealing with a variety of symptoms, diseases, or other nagging afflictions without becoming impaired.
Cancer. Glaucoma. PTSD. Multiple-sclerosis (MS). Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Irritable bowel syndrome. Depression. Anxiety. Insomnia. Eating disorders. Nausea. Parkinson’s disease (PD). HIV/AIDS. Hepatitis-C. Epilepsy.
That is just a short list of the well-documented conditions that are known to be eased or relieved by using the proper amount of marijuana. See the full list of qualifying conditions here: Conditions.
