Medical marijuana — also called medical cannabis — is a term for derivatives of the Cannabis sativa plant. Medical Marijuana is used to relieve serious and chronic pain symptoms.


Cannabis sativa contains many active compounds, but two are of interest for medical purposes: THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that makes people feel a euphoric or “high” feeling.


Medical marijuana uses the marijuana plant or chemicals in it to treat diseases or other conditions. It’s basically the same product as recreational marijuana, but grown in a medically optimized environment. MMJ is prescribed and taken for medical purposes.

How Does Medical Marijuana Work?

Your body already makes marijuana-like chemicals that affect pain, inflammation, and many other processes. Marijuana can sometimes help those natural chemicals work better, says Laura Borgelt, PharmD, of the University of Colorado.


According to experts, cannabis can help reduce chronic pain, nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, and stiff muscles caused by multiple sclerosis.




The amazing healing properties of marijuana come from its significant levels of medical flavonoids. In addition, the contributions of terpenes as well as its high levels of CBD make it an amazing pain fighting remedy. While its psychoactive compound THC is what recreational users are after, it’s the CBD in medical marijuana that makes it therapeutic and beneficial to those suffering from chronic illnesses. Growers are starting to produce higher CBD-level and lower THC-level cannabis plants for medical use through seed exchanges and plant breeding techniques.



Before you start medical cannabis therapy, it helps to learn more information about it and how your brain functions. This way  you know why the herb affects you the way it does. A Miami medical marijuana doctor can recommend different medical cannabis types for your circumstances. That being said, you still have some leeway in deciding what works better for you.

Miami MMJ Doctors  prescribe medical marijuana to treat:


  • Muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis
  • Nausea from cancer chemotherapy
  • Poor appetite and weight loss caused by chronic illness, such as HIV, or nerve pain
  • Seizure disorders; and Crohn’s disease

Side effects of marijuana that usually don’t last long can include:


Dizziness, Drowsiness, Short-term memory loss, Euphoria and more serious side effects include severe anxiety and psychosis.

Who are the Candidates for Medical Marijuana?


Marijuana has been shown to decrease nausea and increase appetite. This can be essential for patients who are having difficulty keeping down food or maintaining adequate nutrition.




For glaucoma sufferers, marijuana helps to lower intraocular eye pressure.




Also, some types of pain, such as peripheral neuropathy, respond better to marijuana than conventional pain relievers.




For some cancer and AIDS patients, drugs that are supposed to boost appetite simply don’t work. Other patients are tired of using medications that can be considered narcotic, addictive, or dangerous, or that produce unpleasant side effects.

what are the benefits of medical marijuana in miami



Cannabinoids are the active chemicals in medical marijuana. They are similar to chemicals the body makes that are involved in appetite, memory, movement, and pain. Research suggests cannabinoids might be effective in the following:

  • Reduce anxiety
  • Lower inflammation and relieve pain
  • Control nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy
  • Kill cancer cells and slow tumor growth
  • Relax tight muscles in people with multiple sclerosis
  • Stimulate appetite and improve weight gain in people with cancer and AIDS.


Research has shown that marijuana may be of benefit in treating the following conditions:

Treating Depression, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Social Anxiety with Medical Cannabis


The review published in Clinical Psychology Review assessed all published scientific literature that investigated the use of marijuana to treat symptoms of mental illness. Its authors found some evidence supporting the use of marijuana to relieve depression and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms. That being said, they caution that marijuana is not an appropriate treatment for some other mental health conditions, such as bipolar disorder and psychosis. The review indicates that there is some evidence to suggest that marijuana might alleviate symptoms of social anxiety, but again, this is contradicted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine review, which instead found that regular users of marijuana may actually be at increased risk of social anxiety.



A large review from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found the following about marijuana or products containing cannabinoids . Cannabinoids, which are the active ingredients in marijuana, or other compounds that act on the same receptors in the brain as marijuana are effective at relieving chronic pain.

  • Treating Cancer with Medical Marijuana

    • Evidence suggests that oral cannabinoids are effective against nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy, and some small studies have found that smoked marijuana may also help to alleviate these symptoms. Some studies on cancer cells suggest that cannabinoids may either slow down the growth of or kill some types of cancer. However, early studies that tested this hypothesis in humans revealed that although cannabinoids are a safe treatment, they are not effective at controlling or curing cancer.


  • Multiple sclerosis and Medical Cannabis

    • The short-term use of oral cannabinoids may improve symptoms of spasticity among people with multiple sclerosis, but the positive effects have been found to be modest.


  • Epilepsy and Medical Marijuana

    • In June 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of a medication containing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat two rare, severe, and specific types of epilepsy. These specific types of epilepsy are called Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. They are difficult to control with other types of medication but a CBD enriched form of medical marijuana yielded more promising results. This CBD-based drug is known as Epidiolex.


  • What Is CBD?


    • CBD is one of many substances that occurs in cannabis. It is not psychoactive. The drug for treating Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndromes involves a purified form of CBD. The approval was based on the findings of research and clinical trials.


    • A study published in 2017 found that the use of CBD resulted in far fewer seizures among children with Dravet syndrome. This study was compared with a placebo. The researchers found astounding results. Children who received the CBD solution went from having around 12 seizures per month to an average of six seizures per month. Three children receiving CBD did not experience any seizures at all. However, the study also found a high rate of side effects linked to CBD. More than 9 in 10 of the children treated with CBD experienced side effects. The most common side effects include but were not limited to:
      • vomiting
      • fatigue, and fever


    • Lastly, the patient information leaflet for Epidiolex warns of side effects such as liver damage, sedation and thoughts of suicide.
