There are many reasons as to why it is beneficial to get a medical marijuana card in Louisiana. But here at Louisiana Marijuana Card, we understand that many of our patients just don’t know exactly how medical marijuana can really help their medical condition.

We know for many just thinking about getting a marijuana card may be a little different for you. For some, it could even be a little scary. We are here to give you all the tools that you need in order to make the best decision for you and your treatment plan, whether that involves medical marijuana or not.

In today's blog, we will be discussing why you should get your medical marijuana card, what the benefits are and how simple it is to get!

Why Get Your Medical Marijuana Card With Us

1. Reduce your inflammation

Inflammation contributes to chronic pain which is the number one use of medical marijuana and can trigger a number of health issues like heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. Inflammation is often rooted in the immune system.

Cannabis works with the endocannabinoid system to help regulate a wide range of bodily functions, including your immune system. Studies have revealed that marijuana actually reduces inflammation related to immune response, and specific types of inflammation associated with certain cancers.

2. Stay active

Keeping an active lifestyle isn’t easy especially during a pandemic. If it were, everyone would be running 10K’s and competing in the Olympics. For an everyday person with a busy life, it is hard to not only keep your body moving daily but also to ditch all the excuses as to why working out doesn’t fit into your schedule.

It is challenging to not get bored while exercising and to keep the motivation high, especially when you have a medical condition and may be experiencing pain or discomfort.

Medical marijuana can actually take away some of those barriers that are standing in the way of a more active lifestyle!

Studies have shown that medical marijuana users are more physically active and less obese than non-users. While marijuana isn’t a magic plant that will make you lose weight, it will reduce the pain you are experiencing which can help you have the opportunity to be more active.

3. Help anxiety

More people today are dealing with anxiety than ever before, and this has gotten even worse since the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only does anxiety make you feel terrible but it is also linked to increased risk of stroke and heart attack, inflammation, and insomnia.

There is a fine line between whether medical marijuana can help or hurt anxiety but as long as you start low and slow, you can keep your anxiety at bay without inciting it. Cannabis can help those with anxiety focus on what is right in front of them and forget about the things that are stressing them out. Treating anxiety can contribute to a foundation for better health for years to come!

4. Relieve insomnia

If you have ever had a big exam or important work presentation, you probably have had some sleepless nights leading up to it. Those nights take a toll but once the stressful situation is over, a good night's sleep is back.

This is not the case when it comes to insomnia since it is chronic. If you can’t sleep, you can’t heal. Between 10 and 30 percent of adults in the United States suffer from chronic insomnia and it gets worse with age.

Medical marijuana straight up helps you sleep. Marijuana has been found to make it easier to not only fall asleep but have longer and better quality sleep durations. This is vital for your body as deep sleep plays a strong role in the healing process.
