Scientists are constantly researching these conditions, and while some are showing that marijuana is having a definite positive effect on these conditions, others are still at early stages of research.

Before we jump to the list of conditions, we must remind you that medical marijuana is not legal in every state and every state has its own list of qualifying conditions to receive medical marijuana. Furthermore, medical marijuana is not monitored, therefore when using it, you may not know its purity, potency or side effects. It’s important to consume responsibly and according to the law.

    Restart treatment

    I used Cannibis oil for three months and it had some positive effects like lowering BP and reducing headaches for which I took about 4 tablets a day – every day. I went off the CB oil because I started getting severe breast pain. I would like to start taking the CB oil again as I have a Psoriasis problem that is starting to get worse.
    THank you so much for your effort in promoting this .
    Kind Regards
    Joe. (68 Years old)
