Cannabis can be used to treat any of a number of ailments, and many Oklahoma residents hold medical cards which allow them to purchase Cannabis products for medicinal purposes.

Medical marijuana uses the chemicals found in marijuana plants to treat diseases. There are over 100 different chemicals found in marijuana plants, known as cannabinoids, and each one has a different effect on the body. Cannabidiol and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known simply as THC, are the two chemicals found in marijuana that are most commonly used in medicine. Some of the conditions that medical marijuana can potentially treat include Alzheimer’s, appetite loss, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy and even cancer. While the effects of cannabis on individuals suffering from these ailments are yet to be fully documented, medical marijuana has proven to be very effective in reducing pain, nausea and vomiting.
