You Are Not Alone
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
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.
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.
It has been reported that medical cannabis may alleviate symptoms of Parkinson’s, including tremors and pain, and reduce stress levels of patients.
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.
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.
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.
