As more people become aware of the health benefits of medicinal cannabis and regulatory frameworks open up more legal markets, its use continues to grow.
Among its currently recognised applications, it can be used to treat a number of illnesses or conditions, including:
- chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
- multiple sclerosis
- chronic non-cancer pain
- palliative care
As research continues and our understanding of the therapeutic benefits grows, medicinal cannabis is expected to find an increasing number of applications, with the potential to treat neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and addiction as well as arthritis, eye disease and diabetes.
