Medical Marijuana can help patients manage pain and ongoing health issues, including persistent nausea, cancer, PTSD, seizure disorders, and more. Because all patients react to THC differently, a qualified medical provider will need to help you find your just-right dose for the most optimal therapeutic benefits.

Is Medical Marijuana Right For Me?

Personalized education, dosing, and delivery recommendations are a key part of having a good relationship with Medical Cannabis. There is no substitute for good medical advice from a caring medical provider.

Many patients use Utah Medical Marijuana to manage pain and symptoms related to ongoing medical issues. Marijuana can be very beneficial to pain patients, and can work well with opioids, allowing people to use fewer narcotic medications. Lower-dose narcotics are always safer for the patient, and some patients find they can discontinue narcotic and opioid use with the aid of Medical Cannabis, under the guidance of their provider.

The Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) was something not taught in medical school. It was discovered in the late 1980s, as cannabinoid (CB) receptors were discovered. As it turns out, the ECS is found in all complex animals and functions to regulate homeostasis. It affects memory, digestion, motor function, immunity and inflammation, appetite, pain, blood pressure, bone growth, and the protection of nerve and brain tissues, among others.

The CB-1 receptor is found throughout the brain and when THC binds to it, you get the psychoactive effect or “high” feeling. However, unlike opioids, there are very few CB-1 receptors in the brain stem, which is why overdose does not cause breathing problems or death.

CB-2 receptors are less well understood and work in the immune system and many other systems. Together, the ECS is a system of balance, working behind the scenes to maintain homeostasis. This is why many believe that cannabis, at low doses, may become a much larger part of healthcare in the years to come.

There are two types of endocannabinoids that interact with the body’s internal system. The first is chemicals produced inside the body or endogenous endocannabinoids. Exogenous, or phytocannabinoids, are supplied from outside the body, mainly from the cannabis plant.

Both the endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids interact with the ECS to impact health and wellbeing.
