Self-Medicating With Medical Marijuana– Is it Right for You?

Medical marijuana is legal in West Virginia and thousands of registered patients are reaping the benefits, feeling some relief at last. Cannabis is a safe, natural alternative medicine that has been used for centuries for many different medical conditions.

Self-medicating usually refers to people who use marijuana or other drugs for physical or mental conditions. People who self medicate administer the drug themselves.

Many people have started self medicating with cannabis in recent years as more and more states are legalizing it for medical purposes. 21 states have also legalized marijuana for recreational use.

Self Medicating With Cannabis

You may be wondering if self medicating with marijuana is right for you. This is a valid question, as drugs can affect everyone differently.

There are many factors that determine how cannabis will impact your mind and body. Some of these factors include:

  • Dosage

  • Delivery method

  • How much you last ate

  • When you last ate

  • Body weight

  • Gender

  • Strain

…and so much more! Cannabis really does affect people in many ways and the only way to know if it works for you is to give it a try. Of course, you cannot do that in the State of West Virginia without your medical marijuana card.
