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.
