Neuropathy

Treating Neuropathy with Medical Marijuana

What is Neuropathy?

 Neuropathy is when the nerves within your body, specifically the nerves outside of your spinal cord and brain, are damaged. This damage often leads to pretty significant systems. The nerves which are damaged are typically responsible for sending info between your nervous system within the brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body. As a result, damage to these nerves often leads to great discomfort, pain, and weakness. Fortunately, the state of Florida recognizes neuropathy as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana. If you or a loved one are interested in consulting with a Florida medical marijuana doctor about treating neuropathy with cannabis, take our qualifying survey today!

Neuropathy and Medical Marijuana

The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in treating neuropathy, by maintaining the homeostasis of the body and plays a direct role in symptoms of neuropathy, such as inflammation and pain. The use of cannabis and the resulting cannabinoids, CBD and THC, have shown significant promise in treating neuropathic pain.
