Redefining High

There are many options for people wanting to try medical marijuana but don’t want to experience the “high” by adjusting the levels of THC & CBD.

For those who want to try medical marijuana without smoking, there are edibles, vaporization products, tinctures, topicals, and other marijuana infused products.

We encourage you to have a discussion with a doctor or a Revolutionary Clinics Patient Consultant to help you find a program that’s right for you.

How Cannabis Works for different Ailments

As more research is done we’re gaining a better and better understanding of how medical marijuana works for different ailments.
ALS

Medical cannabis has been reported to relieve symptoms of ALS, including pain, spasticity, wasting and dyspnea. Many patients have found relief and some have reported a reduced progression of the disease when using medical cannabis.

Cancer
It has been reported that phytocannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant appear to be the biologically ideal treatment for cancer. They may exert anti-cancer activity against both common and lesser known cancers in cell and animal models.
Chrons Disease
It has been reported that medical cannabis helps symptoms by relaxing muscles, reduction of inflammation and relief of spasms in the small and large intestine. It can also help with pain and nausea.
Glaucoma
It has been reported that medical cannabis can relieve glaucoma-related symptoms by lowering intraocular pressure. It is also reported that the neuroprotective actions of medical cannabis can help slow progression of the disease.
Hepatitis C
It has been reported that medical cannabis can relieve symptoms of therapeutic treatments of Hep. C including nausea and vomiting. Research suggests that the anti-inflammatory aspects of cannabis can also slow progression of liver disease.
HIV/AIDS
It has been reported that medical cannabis can alleviate the symptoms of HIV/AIDS. In particular reducing nausea, vomiting and appetite loss. This helps patients restore weight and maintain essential nutrients. It has also been reported that cannabis helps slow the progression of the disease.
Multiple Sclerosis

Medical cannabis has been reported to reduce symptoms of MS, including pain and sleep disturbances, inflammatory-related issues, muscle spasms and abdominal pain. There are also reports that progression of the disease can be slowed by using medical marijuana.

Parkinson's Disease

It has been reported that medical cannabis may alleviate symptoms of Parkinson’s, including tremors and pain, and reduce stress levels of patients.

Chronic Pain
Chronic pain may arise from an injury that has healed, but the pain persists as a result of nerve damage. It may also be caused by an ongoing illness such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer, ulcers, gallbladder disease or AIDS. Studies in both animals and humans have shown that the active compounds in marijuana may have a significant analgesic effect. Using marijuana can also assist sufferers in getting restful sleep.
Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease of the joints characterized by swelling, pain, stiffness and potential loss of limb function. The most important joints in the body are affected, including the hands, wrists, ankles, feet, elbows and knees. Ingesting marijuana as well as applying it topically can aid those suffering from RA by relieving pain, reducing inflammation, assisting in getting to sleep and providing relief for the anxiety and depression that may accompany flare-ups.

Anxiety
Limited studies have shown that ingesting marijuana strains that are high in CBD can alleviate anxiety in the short term. When used in conjunction with therapy and a long-term recovery plan, it could potentially eliminate the symptoms of anxiety.
Depression

THC has been found to activate the CB1 receptor in the brains of test animals as well as increase serotonin levels. Similar studies are limited in humans due to marijuana’s federal illegal status, but these studies, as well as anecdotal evidence, suggest that cannabis can be very useful as an antidepressant.

Chronic Insomnia

While some can find relief for occasional insomnia using conventional medications, these sleep aids are not useful for every patient. Sleep medications can have many side effects, can lead to addiction and may pose a dangerous risk of overdose. There is an extensive body of research supporting the effectiveness of marijuana in aiding restful sleep. Further, many people who suffer from insomnia do so as a result of depression or anxiety. Marijuana is effective in fighting these disorders, as well.

Anorexia
Anorexia nervosa is a disorder identified by dangerously low body weight, intense fear of weight gain and a distorted perception of one’s body image. Marijuana is a well-known appetite stimulant and can aid in the re-feeding process of anorexia treatment without the trauma of using a feeding tube. And since both THC and CBD have reportedly been used with some success in treating mental disorders, marijuana may also assist in treating the underlying causes of the disease.
