Marijuana in all its forms is an addictive substance and this is one of the reasons why it is so difficult to be classed as an acceptable user. As with many things, the system can be abused. However, if you really do find that medical marijuana helps alleviate your symptoms and produces paid-free periods in your life, or even if it takes the edge of your pain and helps you deal with it a little better, then you may find it indispensable. For many, taking medical marijuana is the last resort. It is a sad fact that many people do not discover or use it until the last few months of their life.
However, more and more people are finding medical marijuana much earlier in their illness. It is advisable to have the correct dosage regularly assessed by your doctor, as this will ensure you do not increase your intake or rely on it more heavily than you need to. Medical practitioners are still wary of prescribing marijuana, due to the limited information about its long-term effects. There is not enough information available at the present time to advocate its use on a long-term basis. However, there is no doubt that thousands of people find it an indispensable part of their life.
