Medical Marijuana was discovered a long time ago following observations about its immense healing benefits, especially in managing pain. The herb has many miraculous healing capabilities and has been around for decades; however, its medicinal properties have come to light only recently. Since the legalization, there has been a surge in clinical research and trials on Marijuana, unravelling its great potential. Marijuana owes its healing abilities to the chemicals it carries also the two most known components are CBD and THC. The psychoactive component, THC, is the primary component that relieves pain in patients, but CBD also plays a contributory role. As research continues, more benefits are being explored, and today many diseases have been added to the qualifying conditions, including anxiety, depression, terminal cancer, neurological and also musculoskeletal disorders, and other conditions.
Since more funding is being poured into Marijuana research, more diseases are being added to the list of qualifying conditions for Marijuana use. Every patient needs to be seen by a physician before they can be certified with Marijuana Card Naples.

Where does Medical Marijuana come from?
Marijuana, a greenish-grey mixture of naturally occurring flowering plant, Cannabis sativa, comprises many chemical components. There are also other species that Marijuana is cultivated from, like the Indica strain. Each of these strains of Cannabis produces different quantities of THC and CBD, the most sought-after component in Medical Marijuana. Both Sativa and Indica strains have different effects; the Sativa strain gives a more energizing effect while the Indica strain, is known for its relaxing effect.
Scientists studying Marijuana have discovered many other cannabinoids which are present in various plant strains that have the potential to be used for medicinal purposes.
Since each strain carries its unique healing effect and mode of action, it is important that it is taken after consultation with a qualified physician. Hence, it is best to allow an experienced physician to guide your consumption of Marijuana, the attempt of taking it without consultation carries a risk. The physicians in My Florida Green are always available to guide you in the right direction and assist you in completing your Marijuana certification. You can reach out to any of them today and get more information about Marijuana treatment.
How does Medical Marijuana work?
The two most known active components in Marijuana are THC and CBD, and they both work together to improve many medical conditions. CBD and THC, like many other chemical components, affect the activities of the endocannabinoid system, correcting abnormal functions that result in the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, psychosis, and other illnesses. The brain receptors of the endocannabinoid system get affected by Marijuana as it influences how these receptors respond to stimuli and communicate with the body.
Medical Marijuana has been phenomenal in its effect on patients with terminal cancer and those suffering from chronic pain. Scientists have reported that THC and CBD can slow growth or even cause death in certain types of cancer cells. Medical Marijuana treats different types of cancer in various ways. Inhaling Marijuana can be a good treatment for pain caused by damaged nerves (neuropathic pain); smoked Marijuana helps reduce nausea and vomiting and improve appetite, which are common side effects of cancer chemotherapy.
Marijuana can be taken by various different routes of administration; each influences the body differently. Some methods give immediate effects, such as smoking, while others produce a delayed effect which lasts longer. The route of administration of Marijuana significantly determines the impact it has, especially the duration of action. Studies suggest that if you smoke or use a vaporizer, the effects are felt very quickly, but it takes longer if medical Marijuana is taken with food.
