Medicinal Marijuana has been effective for some patients in reducing the pain intensity accompanied with muscle spasms through the stimulation of nerve receptors.
Pain associated with nerve injury and surgery can be remedied with a small dose of cannabis, often relied on by patients as a daily part of their recovery strategy.
Common side effects from medical marijuana may include: problems with memory and learning, distorted perception (sights, sounds, time, touch), difficulty thinking and problem solving, loss of coordination and motor skills, increased heart rate, anxiety, bloodshot eyes, and dry mouth. More serious side effects can include: addiction, psychosis, hallucinations and lung cancer from smoking. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
