Medicinal Marijuana Review / Focus on Arthritis
Grape Stomper is a 70 percent Sativa and 30 percent Indica with up to 26 percent THC. This makes it a powerful weed medicinally. Many with arthritis have chosen to medicate with medical marijuana.
Before the current medical marijuana legalization wave, doctors had noticed that a high percentage of patients with significant pain from arthritis were using marijuana to treat some of the symptoms. There are as many as 100 different types of arthritis. They may feature pain in the joints, limited movement, twisted joints, stiffness, and swelling. The two main types are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. The Rheumatoid form is caused by autoimmune attacks coming from the sufferer’s own immune system. Osteoarthritis occurs with the wear and tear on joints as we age. Both forms may produce significant pain and disability. Twenty percent of people in the United States experience symptoms of arthritis.
Arthritis can cause many disabling symptoms. These might include: lack of mobility, chronic pain, gout, muscle aches, insomnia, feeling tired and weak, and inability to move a limb without pain. In the US, having some form of arthritis is the top producer of disability in the population. There are one million visits to the hospital for arthritis each year in the US. Arthritis costs Americans one hundred billion dollars per year, much of that is money people are losing by missing work. The cost is high. But the greatest cost is in pain and quality of life.
Arthritis suffers discovered themselves that they can treat the pain by using marijuana. Many states have now made marijuana legal for arthritic conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis. Marijuana can treat the pain and fatigue in these conditions and allow the sufferer to be able to move a bit better without experiencing tremendous pain. Marijuana also has an anti-inflammatory effect which may help some with the swelling and inflammation in the joint over time. Therefore, marijuana may help not only acutely, but in the long term.
Malaise may come along with this malady. A stimulating strain like Grape Stomper may be just what is needed to fight severe pain along with tiredness. This strain will fight the pain in the joints as well as producing a stimulation and positive mood which will fight the malaise of having this illness. Having a period of reduced pain and increased mobility provides hope to these patients. It is good for them to know that they can in fact have a break from the pain and still function. Many sufferers have used medical marijuana to increase their productivity in the face of this severely disabling illness.
