We are here to provide you with all the tools that you need in order to make the best decision for you and your treatment plan, whether that involves medical marijuana or not.

Why Get Your West Virginia Marijuana Card?

1. Reduce your inflammation

Inflammation is a contributor to chronic pain which is the number one use of medical marijuana. Inflammation can trigger a number of health problems like heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. Inflammation problems often start in the immune system.

Medical marijuana works with the endocannabinoid system to help regulate a wide range of bodily functions, including the immune system. Studies have revealed that cannabis actually reduces inflammation related to immune response, and specific types of inflammation associated with certain cancers.

2. Live an active lifestyle

Keeping an active lifestyle up is not the easiest thing to do especially during a pandemic. If it were, everyone would be running marathons and competing in the Olympics! For the everyday person with a busy life, it is hard to not only keep your body moving daily but also to ditch the excuses as to why working out doesn’t fit into the schedule.

It is very challenging to not get bored while working out and to keep the motivation high, especially when you are battling a medical condition and may be experiencing pain or discomfort.

Medical marijuana can actually take away some of the barriers that are standing in the way of a more active lifestyle!

Some research has shown that marijuana users are more physically active and less obese than non-marijuana users. While marijuana isn’t a magic plant that will make you lose weight, it will reduce the pain you are experiencing which can help you have the opportunity to be more active.

3. Aid anxiety

More people today are dealing with anxiety than ever before, and this has gotten worse since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only does anxiety make you feel terrible but it is also linked to increased risk of stroke and heart attack, inflammation, and insomnia.

Although anxiety is not a qualifying condition in West Virginia, you can still treat your anxiety with marijuana if you have another qualifying condition as well that you are treating.

There is a fine line between whether cannabis can help or hurt anxiety but as long as you start low and slow, you can keep your anxiety at bay without triggering it. Marijuana can help those with anxiety focus on what is right in front of them and forget about the things that are stressing them out. Treating anxiety can contribute to a foundation for better health for years to come!

4. Relieve your insomnia

If you have ever had a big project or important work presentation, you probably have had a few sleepless nights leading up to it. Those nights take a toll but once the stressful situation is over, a good night's sleep awaits you.

This is not the case when it comes to chronic insomnia. If you can’t sleep, you can’t heal. Between 10 and 30 percent of adults in the United States suffer from chronic insomnia and it gets worse with age.

Medical marijuana can help with insomnia because it straight up helps you sleep! Marijuana has been found to make it easier to not only fall asleep but have longer and better quality sleep durations. This is vital for your body as deep sleep plays a strong role in the healing process.
