Medical Marijuana

We Do Recover

Medical marijuana (MMJ) can be defined as legalised use of the cannabis in medical treatment and therapy. Medical Marijuana refers to the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes, under the supervision of qualified healthcare professionals. It’s important to highlight that the use of MMJ is not aimed at recreational or non-medical purposes. Instead, it focuses on utilizing the medicinal properties of cannabis to assist individuals in their recovery.

Historically, the medical use of cannabis can be traced back thousands of years. Ancient civilizations, such as the Chinese, Egyptians, and Greeks, recognized its potential therapeutic benefits. However, its legality and acceptance have varied throughout time and across different cultures.

There has been an increasing interest in the potential role of MMJ within addiction treatment. While the research is still ongoing and the results are sometimes mixed, some studies have suggested that medical cannabis may be helpful in addressing certain symptoms associated with addiction withdrawal, such as pain, anxiety, and insomnia.

It’s important to note that Medical Marijuana is not meant to be a standalone treatment for addiction. It should be considered as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may include therapy, counselling, support groups, and other evidence-based practices. Addiction treatment professionals will carefully evaluate whether MMJ is suitable for an individual’s unique circumstances, taking into account factors such as their specific addiction, medical history, and personal needs.

If Medical Marijuana is determined to be an appropriate part of the treatment plan, it will be utilized in a regulated, controlled, and supervised manner. This helps ensure that the potential benefits are maximized while minimizing any potential risks or negative impacts.

Medical Marijuana comes in various forms, such as oils, pills, vaporizers, and edible products. The specific form and dosage will be determined by healthcare professionals based on the individual’s condition and needs.

It’s important to remember that regulations surrounding Medical Marijuana differ from one place to another. While it may be legal for medical use in some areas, it may still be considered illegal in others. Therefore, obtaining Medical Marijuana treatment should always be done in compliance with the local laws and regulations.
