Providing Medical Cannabis and Treatment Monitoring

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Psychology Today (December 14, 2017) "research shows symptom reduction in patients with PTSD. As a result of taking medical marijuana participants report a decrease in re-experiencing the trauma, less avoidance of situations that reminded them of the trauma, and a decline in hyper-arousal."

Chronic Pain

Medical Cannabis contains antispasmodic qualities which relax muscles. Patients who suffer from chronic pain caused by diabetes, cancer, MS, HIV, and other diseases have been turning to medical cannabis as a way to treat their pain  and inflammation without the use of addictive pharmaceutical medications.
