Millions of Americans are struggling with day to day life due to unfortunate medical conditions. Not being able to sleep due to anxiety or PTSD is a major issue for many. Others are suffering from chronic pain caused by cancer, HIV, glaucoma, and many other diagnoses. Whatever the medical issue is, nobody should have to put up with daily pain, anxiety, overwhelming stress or insomnia. While there are solutions available many of them carry major side effects, high costs, and even questionable results. Now there’s a new answer to relieve the previously mentioned symptoms. With the recent legalization of medical marijuana in Florida, many Floridan’s have found the relief they very much need as well as deserve. That relief and a better way of life start with a phone call to High Life Medical Marijuana.
The use of medical marijuana no longer carries the negative stigma that was once attached to it. The benefits from the medicine are vast while the side effects remain minor or even insignificant especially when compared to the other alternatives such as painful surgery or addictive opioid pain medications. A handful of the benefits that come from the assistance of medical marijuana include:
Before medical marijuana was an option the main avenues providing relief to medical issues include surgery and pain medication. Both have their own worrisome problems and certain medical conditions can’t be treated by either. Surgery can be very expensive, cause painful scars and have long recovery times leaving the patient laid up while they heal. Pain medications such as Vicodin and Percocet include opioids as the active ingredient, thus they are extremely addictive even with short term use. Abruptly stopping will cause very painful withdrawal symptoms. Over 50,000 Americans lose their lives every year as a result of accidental overdoses from opioids and that number has been on the rise for years. Medical marijuana, on the other hand, is quite affordable. Your initial doctor visit to acquire your medical card is around $200, this card will give you access to Florida’s many dispensaries. A months’ worth of medication is around $50 to $100 depending on the amount you need to relieve your medical condition.
In the above paragraph, the addictiveness of opioid pain medication was mentioned. One of the major advantages of medical marijuana is it is not addictive. If you find medical marijuana is not for you just simply stop using the medication and that is it. There are no debilitating withdrawal symptoms that come from abruptly stopping medical marijuana treatment. Medical Marijuana can cause you to come down with a case of “the munchies” so you might find yourself eating more chips and ice-cream than you should be. We hardly think this compares to the very serious side effects that come with opioids, however.
