In addition, patients are interested in improving their overall health and well-being.
The invaluable effects of cannabis
Since ancient times, it has been discovered that this type of herb affects the psychological state of a person as a sedative, mood-enhancing, relaxing. The use of cannabis brings several beneficial features and benefits from a medical point of view for the patient’s health. The herb helps to curb the patient’s symptoms, treating illnesses. For example, marijuana is excellent for dealing with nausea or when undergoing chemotherapy; this herb improves the appetite of AIDS patients. It is also perfect for muscle spasms and chronic diseases, and it has an anti-tumour effect.
In a word – the positive effect on the body of medical marijuana in treating a person in need of this type of medicine is invaluable. The important rule of using this herb in the treatment of a person is strict adherence to the doses by the patient and under the close supervision of a doctor, because there is a risk of addiction and subsequent dependence.
Addiction is an irresistible attraction to substances or objects, expressed in the performance of specific actions, in the absence of which a person experiences psychological discomfort.
It is known that uncontrolled use of sedatives, including alcohol illicit drugs, which, as we said earlier, include marijuana and other illegal drugs, can cause addiction.
Alcohol addiction is a severe progressive disease in which the sufferer has an irresistible craving for alcohol and consumes it in large quantities despite the negative consequences.
Drug dependence is a disease caused by the systematic use of narcotic, psychotropic or toxic substances. It is manifested by mental and physical dependence on these substances.
Gambling addiction is a pathological propensity to gambling with frequent episodes of participation in it, which is the main dominant in such a person’s life and entails depreciation of previous values for the subject (family, professional, social, material).
A disorder expressed infrequent and regularly recurring gambling, which dominates the patient’s lifestyle and leads to a loss of social, professional and material values and obligations.
A clear distinction must be made between gambling addiction and the presence of gambling addiction in manic patients.
Mania is a different illness, accompanied by solid excitement, internal animation, unreasonably elevated mood and tireless desire to gamble.
Gambling pathology manifests itself in a prolonged, recurrent and often also increasing craving for gambling, damaging the person’s social life and leading to consequences such as debt, destruction of family ties, and decreased interest in professional growth.
Sexual addiction is a compulsive form of sexual behaviour that is accompanied by a need for constant promiscuity. Sexual addiction is expressed in sexual contact with strangers or unfamiliar people for women and men.
Non-chemical (psychological, substance-based) addiction – the need for an object is expressed in extreme psychological discomfort. Psychosomatic manifestations are possible. The number of psychological addictions is increasing.
Computer addiction – is a pathological addiction of a person to occupations connected with using a computer, which leads to a drastic reduction of all other kinds of activity limitation of communication with other people.
Toxic addiction is one of the most dangerous types of drug addiction that irreparably destroys the body. Toxic addicts use drugs that are not formally classified as narcotic substances but are capable of causing a mental disorder (delirium) characterized by delirium and hallucinations.
Shopaholism (shopaholic) – oniomania – is not a separate psychological disorder, but rather a type of emotional disorder in which the addictive shopaholic buys all things and clothes, indiscriminately, aimlessly, a lot, and on stock, getting into debt and credit.
Workaholism (workaholic) is a passionate love of work, a behavioural addiction (akin to drug addiction). An addicted person feels an uncontrollable desire to work all the time. The person finds an escape from daily worries, personal problems, and responsibilities in his work.
Overeating is an addiction to gastronomic overindulgence, which depends on the well-being of one’s lifestyle! According to the available data on normal human physiology, we can easily see that the causes of overeating are related to the role of food in one’s life!
Extreme sports are akin to adrenaline addiction, which a person gets from a sport associated with the risk to life: jumping from a height, racing, rock climbing without insurance, water diving among sharks without protection and so on. All these raise to get an incredible dose of adrenaline, on which the person subsequently gets hooked.
Statistics on addictions
Perhaps everyone has met people who suffer from one or another addiction in their lives. But, unfortunately, the statistics are disappointing.
According to sociological studies, about 3.5% of the population has an alcohol or drug addiction. In addition, the number of people suffering from psychological addictions is not countable.
It is possible to return to everyday life with properly chosen treatment. However, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of addiction formation, its causes and the main thing to address to the excellent specialist and take recovery seriously.
Several sciences such as psychology, sociology and medicine are involved in studying addictions, which is what Canadian MedCanna Clinics does. Depending on what is used to escape from reality, there are pharmacological or chemical, substance and food addictions.

Cannabis Provisions and Laws
Since 2001, Medical Marijuana Access Regulations (MMARs) were introduced, which allow access to dried marijuana for medical purposes with the permission of treating physicians.
Since 2014, the Government of Canada introduced and approved the Medical Marijuana Medical Use Rule (MMPR), which replaced the MMAR. All conditions were created for the commercial industry to produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. Under the rule, people with medical needs can access dried marijuana of controlled quality, made in a safe and sanitary environment, freely and only with a doctor’s prescription.
In June 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that people with medical needs have the right to use and produce other cannabis products. As of 2016, the ACMPR decision by the Federal Court of Canada ruled that people should only get their marijuana from licensed producers.
What is the Cannabis Act
On October 17, 2018, this law was passed and replaced the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).
It improved patient access to obtain recreational marijuana legally from authorized provincial online retailers. Some provinces allow retail access to recreational cannabis through dispensaries, while all storefronts and dispensaries are now prohibited in Ontario.
Patients under the law now authorized by their health care provider can still access cannabis for medical purposes.
Here are the frequently asked questions about marijuana treatment by patients.
To access medical marijuana, a patient must be examined by a physician and receive approval and an appropriate prescription for its use. The responsibility for authorizing patients falls entirely on the physicians. To purchase medical cannabis from a licensed producer, patients must have a medical document similar to a prescription.
Crohn’s disease is a digestive system disease associated with gut dysbiosis. It is a genetic immune system disorder. Cannabinoids have immunomodulatory properties and positively affect the disease by inhibiting the release of pro-inflammatory information molecules and provoking the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines.
With cannabis, as with any other psychotropic substance, if the rules of taking the drug are not followed, the patient may become addicted and subsequently addicted. However, if you adhere to all the rules and regulations of medical drug use and under the supervision of a doctor, there will be no negative symptoms and addiction.
Medical cannabis must be taken according to the doctor’s instructions and adhere to strict ingestion rules. As long as the drug can cause an overdose and subsequent addiction, it is not necessary to exceed the rate of use of the drug during the treatment of the patient.
Cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive component of cannabis, prevents the development of myositis or inflammatory damage to the skeletal muscles. This condition manifests as muscle pain and often occurs in athletes who regularly experience intense physical activity.
Cannabidiol allows rapid muscle recovery after exercise and after injuries.
