ALS

(Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurological disease involving the nerve cells that are responsible for muscle movement. ALS usually begins in the hands, feet or limbs, then continues to deteriorate muscle control throughout the body. Early signs of ALS may include muscle stiffness and weakness. Patients living with ALS may also experience muscle cramps, twitches, spasms, slurred speech, difficulty walking, tripping and falling, difficulty sleeping due to pain, and cognitive difficulties. These symptoms can also trigger mental difficulties such as anxiety and depression. 

 

Our ALS patients have reported improvements in muscle cramping, pain management, anxiety, insomnia and overall mobility after taking medical marijuana.

 

ALS Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Relieve:

 

  • Muscle cramping and stiffness
  • Pain
  • Mobility
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression

Alzheimer’s Disease

And other dementias

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a covered condition for medical marijuana in Texas that slowly, progressively destroys brain cells over time. The most common symptoms include loss of memory and thinking skills. As the disease progresses, people with AD will lose the ability to perform simple activities of daily living like dressing themselves, toileting and bathing.

 

Medical marijuana can help produce anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and neurogenic effects in patients. Clinical studies have also reported positive behavioral effects in patients with Alzheimer’s.

 

AD and Dementia Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Relieve:

 

  • Appetite loss and weight loss
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Memory loss
  • Neuroinflammation
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Agitation and behavioral changes

Qualifying conditions

Autism

And other spectrum disorders

One of the covered conditions for medical marijuana in Texas, Autism is a spectrum disorder that mainly impacts behavior and some physical abilities. While symptoms and severity can vary widely, patients living with Autism usually experience difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests, aggression and repetitive behaviors.

 

Since the mid 2010s, there have been several noteworthy studies that show CBD and THC helps improve symptoms and co-morbidities.

 

Autism Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Relieve: 

 

  • Difficulty with social interaction
  • Difficulty with speech or communication
  • Obsessive or repeated behaviors
  • Depression
  • Seizures
  • Restlessness
  • Aggression or disruptive behavior

Cancer

Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body, which can destroy normal body tissue. Terminal cancer currently qualifies for medical marijuana in Texas. On September 1, 2021, all cancer diagnoses will qualify.

Several studies point to the potential benefits of medical marijuana for cancer patients who are experiencing nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite and pain. While research is still ongoing, patients have reported improvements in appetite, nausea and overall quality of life with medical cannabis.

 

Cancer Symptoms Medical Marijuana May Relieve:  

 

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Decreased appetite

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is a group of congenital disorders that affect body movement and muscle coordination. CP, a covered condition for medical marijuana in Texas, is also the most common motor disability during childhood. Patients living with CP may experience symptoms such as lack of balance and coordination, stiff muscles, spasms and tremors, difficulty walking, difficulty eating and swallowing, pain and seizures. 

 

As a treatment for Cerebral Palsy, medical marijuana is shown to be effective in helping to manage pain, spasms, seizures and speech impairments by relaxing the muscles. 

 

Cerebral Palsy Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Treat: 

 

  • Pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Seizures
  • Speech issues

Qualifying conditions

Epilepsy

And other seizure disorders

Epilepsy, which is eligible for medical marijuana in Texas, is a neurological disorder in which abnormal brain activity causes seizures and disturbances in cognitive functions. Approximately 30 percent of people with epilepsy don’t respond well to conventional treatments, but cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, has emerged as a promising alternative treatment option. 

Research indicates medical marijuana treatments may decrease the frequency of convulsive seizures in some patients living with intractable epilepsy, and numerous patients and caregivers have come forward across the country in recent years reporting positive responses to CBD.

 

Epilepsy Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Relieve:

 

  • Seizures
  • Anxiety

Qualifying conditions

Huntington’s Disease

Huntington’s Disease is a progressive brain disorder in which nerve cells in the brain break down over time. Patients living with Huntington’s Disease may experience a wide range of symptoms such as involuntary jerking and movements, dystonia and muscle problems, problems with coordination, cognitive issues and confusion, depression and anxiety. 

As an approved condition for medical marijuana in Texas, patients living with Huntington’s Disease may find relief for many of the physical and psychological symptoms while using cannabis medicine.

 

Huntington’s Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Treat: 

 

  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia

MS

(Multiple Sclerosis)

While the cause of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is still unknown, this potentially disabling disease triggers the body’s immune system to attack the central nervous system. MS can trigger a wide range of symptoms for patients including muscle spasms, pain, fatigue, slurred speech, dizziness and anxiety. 

 

Research shows medical marijuana, containing CBD levels equal or higher than THC, have had positive effects on muscle spasticity and pain. The effects of cannabis and its safety have been reviewed by the American Academy of Neurology in a practice guideline. In Texas, MS is a covered condition eligible for medical marijuana. 

 

MS Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Relieve: 

 

  • Muscle spasms
  • Anxiety
  • Pain

Qualifying conditions

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement and is a covered condition for medical marijuana in Texas. Patients living with Parkinson’s may experience tremors, slowed movements (bradykinesia), rigid muscles, involuntary muscle movements (dyskinesia), impaired posture, spasms and speech changes. Other associated symptoms can include depression, anxiety, hallucinations, sleep disorders and late-stage dementia.

 

Multiple studies in animal models have demonstrated symptom relief, improvement of treatment-induced dyskinesias, and suggest a role in neuroprotection with various cannabinoid therapies. Parkinson’s patients have reported improvements in pain management, movement, spasms and overall quality of life with cannabis medicine.

 

Parkinson’s Symptoms Medical Marijuana Can Relieve: 

 

  • Dyskinesia
  • Bradykinesia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Rigidity
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Pain
