Scientific Evidence

Medical cannabis is used to relieve the symptoms caused by a variety of different diseases and conditions. Sometimes conventional medications simply are not enough, and in those instances cannabis may have a role to play. Much of the evidence we have to support the therapeutic value of cannabis comes from anecdotal reports, but there is a steadily growing body of published scientific study helping doctors become more comfortable prescribing it.
Medical Cannabis may be effective to relieve the following symptoms: nausea, loss of appetite, chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, inflammation and muscle spasms.

There is a growing body of scientific evidence indicating the role medical cannabis can play in a long list of diseases and there is a growing number of ongoing clinical trials related to the treatment of clinical conditions by medical cannabis.
