Patients with MS Qualify for Medical Marijuana in Georgia
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic medical condition that affects patients for the duration of their lives. While some medicines exist to treat MS, they can cause unwelcome side effects. Fortunately, cannabis offers an alternative path to relief.
Once you register for a Georgia medical marijuana card, you can legally possess up to 20 ounces of low delta 9 THC cannabis oil. You’ll also be among the first people to receive the benefits of future reform efforts.
If you’re living with MS, or simply think you may be experiencing the condition, it pays to schedule an evaluation to see if medical marijuana is a good fit for you.
What are the Signs and Symptoms of MS?
MS can show up in anyone at any stage of life. However, it’s most common in women between the ages of 20 and 50. Symptoms vary widely between individuals and may come and go in cycles with different degrees of severity.
In every case, it helps to understand that MS is both a neurological and autoimmune disorder. People experience MS when their own immune systems attack healthy cells in the brain and spine.
Some potential signs of MS include:
Tingling or weakness
Vertigo or dizziness
