Twin Cities Pain Clinic providers are licensed to certify patients through the state of Minnesota to obtain medical cannabis for the treatment of intractable pain.
What is Medical Cannabis?
Medical cannabis is a treatment that involves the use of cannabis (marijuana) for medicinal purposes.
The chemicals in cannabis, specifically delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), have been used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including intractable pain.
How Does Medical Cannabis Work?
Research suggests that the active chemicals in the cannabis plant, called cannabinoids, can relieve pain by reducing inflammation and relaxing tight muscles.
There are a variety of ways to take medical cannabis, including:
- Using a device called a vaporizer to inhale the cannabis as a mist
- Eating it, usually in the form of a small snack or treat
- Applying it topically to your skin with a lotion, spray or oil
- Placing a few drops of liquid cannabis beneath your tongue
You must be certified through the state before you can obtain medical cannabis. This certification requires approval from a licensed physician who has identified you as a qualified candidate for the treatment.
