What is Medical Marijuana

The cannabis plant has a complex make-up and contains over 400 individual chemicals. Medical cannabis allowed by the federal government comes in the form of dried marijuana buds or cannabis oil. Doctors often approve its use when other treatments fail to work on patients' severe pain, nausea or other symptoms of chronic illness

Who could benefit from medical cannabis? *

Those who can potentially benefit include people suffering from:

  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Glaucoma
  • Anxiety

Individuals who should not use medical cannabis include:

  • People with heart disease
  • Pregnant women
  • People with a history of psychosis
*Only those with a medical document, approved by a qualified healthcare practitioner can be provided with Seven Leaf medical cannabis.


Many medical uses of cannabis are widely accepted, while others are subject to ongoing, serious research. Those who use medical cannabis typically are looking for relief from:

  • Pain, especially of the nerves
  • Muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis
  • Nausea and/or reduced appetite from chemotherapy
  • Poor appetite and weight loss form chronic illness
  • The severity of epileptic seizures
  • The symptoms of bowel disease
  • Dramatic brain injuries
I chose to use marijuana as a pain reliever for Trigeminal Neuralgia (the “Suicide Disease”) instead of my perscribed narcotics because I didn’t want to become addicted to them. Marijuana has helped me live through my suicide disease
— Sheila Ransom
The radiation is when he could not sleep or eat. Nothing seemed to help. So a doctor told us he should try marijuana. He was able to eat again. He was able to sleep. He started feeling well enough to go out again. I would never have thought of it helping anybody, but it helped him. It didn’t cure him but it did give him some comfort, some relief.
— Angie Sunday, about her husband Bobby Sunday who was suffering from lung cancer
