Texas Medical Marijuana Card Qualifying Conditions

Texans can use medical marijuana to treat chronic, incapacitating conditions that affect their quality of life and general well-being under the state’s Compassionate Use Program. Consider requesting a medical marijuana prescription from a marijuana doctor if you have a chronic illness or condition.

Medical marijuana can help you manage disease symptoms and the side effects of conventional treatments, though it cannot cure chronic conditions. As social norms change and ongoing success stories motivate additional research, physicians and scientists are learning more about the therapeutic value of cannabis.

Compared to many narcotic medications, medical marijuana is an effective treatment with a lower risk of addiction and fewer side effects. When qualifying Texas residents treat their symptoms with low-THC cannabis products from Texas dispensaries, they typically experience greater levels of functioning and fewer bodily limitations.

Autism

A person with autism has a wide range of emotional and behavioral disorders that impair their capacity for communication, mood regulation, and impulse control. The active ingredients in marijuana, CBD and THC, aid patients in managing the aggressive and anxious symptoms that can result in irrational outbursts and withdrawal in people with autism.

Researchers believe that CBD increases the amount of serotonin that is available in the brain, though more research is necessary. They contend that doing so may improve how people with autism regulate their emotions and react to different kinds of stimuli.

Cancer

Managing the side effects of chemotherapy and cancer treatment is one of marijuana’s most well-established and dependable uses. During treatment, cancer patients encounter nausea, depression, anxiety, and loss of appetite. These adverse effects reduce life satisfaction and impede healing.

Cannabis can reduce nausea and increase appetite, assisting patients in ingesting and absorbing the right nutrients to enhance their general health. Researchers think that medical marijuana’s anti-inflammatory properties can help patients heal and experience less pain. Treatment with marijuana can also lessen psychological side effects, thereby improving one’s attitude during recovery.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

In patients with ALS, a severe neurodegenerative disorder, the ability to transmit signals from the brain to the body is lost. It causes excruciating pain, nausea, vomiting, spasticity, and depression.

Medical marijuana can aid patients in controlling the debilitating pain brought on by their illness, improving their quality of life. The drug enhances appetite. Cannabis also reduces muscle tension, which impairs movement and aggravates pain.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Anxiety, fear, and a general sense of unease are common in PTSD patients due to their nearly constant state of hyperarousal. Strong anecdotal evidence suggests that medical marijuana is more effective than traditional medications at controlling symptoms.

Researchers think that cannabis’ impact on the availability and binding of neurotransmitters aids PTSD patients in mood regulation and anxiety reduction. When using cannabis as a treatment, many patients find it easier to interact with others and function in general.
