“My ability to interact with the regular world
was back. It helped me re-integrate into society

Marijuana use can relieve the symptoms of insomnia,
premenstrual syndrome, poor appetite and some side

Others claim that marijuana provides therapeutic
relief for patients with PTSD and multiple sclerosis.

It can also help control seizures and muscle spasms in
people suffering from epilepsy and spinal cord injuries. []
