An Overview of Terminal Illness
Terminal illness refers to an incurable and irreversible condition that has been medically confirmed. When an individual is diagnosed as being terminally ill, they are expected to have a life expectancy of six months or less.
Terminal Illness Treatment with Medical Marijuana
The most common symptoms of terminal illness include pain, depression, digestive discomfort, nausea, and appetite. While the symptoms are not curable, medical marijuana helps alleviate these symptoms and provide relief. The use of marijuana can make the terminal illness process much easier on the individual as it can alleviate chronic pain while decreasing the dosage of opiate medications.
