  • Does medical marijuana has many side effects?

    Hello all!!
    My uncle is a tumor patient. He was diagnosed with spinal cord tumor during his forties. Now it's 2 years since he is surviving his journey with spinal cord tumor. He took many radiations and altogether 20 chemotherapies. He is having difficulty while walking and also he is troubled with doing activities with his hand. Also, he is troubled while doing tasks like opening jars, holding mobile phones etc. Day by day he is unable to do tasks due to severe hand pain. For his pain relief, I suggested medical marijuana. I’m planning to take a visit to a nearby clinic for getting more information about the treatment for osteoarthritis. I'm doubtful whether medical marijuana treatment is applicable for him at this age. Does medical marijuana have many side effects? What can you say about this?

    Marijuana is an herb. It contains chemicals called cannabinoids that affect the central nervous system. Cannabinoids are found in the highest concentration in the leaves and flowers, the parts that are used to make medicine.

    Marijuana contains chemicals that work by binding to specific sites in the brain and on the nerves. Marijuana has some well-proven benefits, including relief for long-term pain. For cancer patients, there have been a number of small studies that support the use of medical marijuana for pain, nausea, increasing appetite, treating neuropathy, and reducing stress and anxiety.
