Medicinal Marijuana Review
Maui Wowie medical cannabis has THC levels as high as 20 percent. This medium-high level of THC makes Maui Wowie an effective pain reliever for chronic pain conditions. This includes musculoskeletal pain, such as you might encounter in sciatica and other types of back, neck, and shoulder pain. It can also help with pain due to inflammation, such as in arthritis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
In States like Alaska, with less strict marijuana laws and rules, Maui Wowie medicinal cannabis can be used for conditions such as:
- HIV/AIDS associated wasting
- cancer and its associated wasting
- any disease which causes wasting
- intractable pain
- intractable nausea
- seizures and
- severe muscle spasms
Much evidence, scientific and anecdotal shows medicinal marijuana to be effective for these conditions. In Alaska, marijuana is legal, so in practice, it can be used to treat any malady the user decides to use it for; however, many people are not comfortable using marijuana without a prescription and a doctor’s recommendations. For these people, the state has listed various conditions for which a doctor may recommend marijuana. The upside is that the doctor can recommend a dosage and frequency. For people who are not recreational users, these recommendations can be indispensable at keeping them safe and legal when it comes to DUI laws.
States like California which also have liberal marijuana laws have included many more conditions in addition to the ones already listed, these include:
- Seizures and epilepsy
- Multiple sclerosis
- Chronic pain
- Any other chronic medical condition that severely limits one’s functioning.
In states with medium marijuana requirements like Arkansas, they allow the use of psychoactive varieties of medical marijuana like Maui Wowie. It can be used to treat a limited amount of conditions, including these:
- Hepatitis C
- ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease
- Tourette’s Syndrome
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Severe arthritis
- Alzheimer’s disease
States with strict marijuana laws such as Georgia limit use to only low THC oil, with less than 5% THC. This oil can only be used for a few conditions, namely the following:
- Mitochondrial disease
- Seizure in epilepsy or head trauma
- Severe MS
- Severe sickle cell
- Terminal Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
- Terminal cancer
In states with full prohibition like Idaho, CBD oil with no THC, derived from Maui Wowie may still be legal, though this is a legal grey area. However, few prosecutions have followed from use of CBD oil with barely detectable or no THC.
