We recognize that many people do not wish to take prescription medications, so, Dr. Zipper, offers medical marijuana for stress relief for patients with qualifying medical conditions.

The holidays can be a particularly stressful time of year for many people, especially in 2020. If you are suffering from anxiety or depression, medical marijuana may provide the relief you need.

What Conditions Can Medical Marijuana Treat?

Medical marijuana is not just “pot” that you get from some kid at the beach. It is distributed by licensed dispensaries. Different strains of medical marijuana are designed to treat different medical conditions. It is often used to treat symptoms because it is not a cure for any illnesses.

  • Cancer patients use it to help relieve pain and increase appetite.
  • Migraines and pain associated with autoimmune disorders, such as fibromyalgia may be helped by using it.
  • Medical marijuana is often beneficial for those suffering from anxiety and depression, two mental health issues that are exacerbated during the holidays for many people.
  • It can also help with sleep issues which is often an underlying condition causing or contributing to anxiety and depression.  Our bodies and minds simply cannot function properly when sleep-deprived.
