Medical cannabis patients have known cannabis’ medicinal value for thousands of years.  CNN and other credible, mainstream media outlets have begun reporting these facts and medical benefits.  This has accelerated and expanded cannabis research.  We base ALL medical claims on reputable, published clinical studies (click this link to read some of them).

Clinical studies have proven that cannabis treats, prevents, and is some cases, cures some of our most devastating illnesses.  Some of these include:

  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)
  • Epilepsy
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Metastatic cancers (i.e. breast, prostate)
  • Dementia
  • Chronic pain

The cannabis plant contains an impressive array of cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids.  The synergy of these compounds create analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-psychotic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antispasmodic, antiemetic, anti-fungal, anti-mutagenic, antibiotic, sedative, euphoriant, immune potentiator, antipyretic, cytoprotective, AChE inhibitive properties.
