Medical Marijuana For Patients With Chronic Pain In Minnesota
Minnesotans May Use Medical Marijuana to Treat Chronic Pain
With medical marijuana expanding in Minnesota, chronic pain sufferers here may now obtain a Medical Marijuana Card to help treat their affliction.
This means that North Star State residents who are enduring chronic pain can qualify for medical marijuana treatment, provided that more traditional methods of pain relief have failed to bring them relief.
Medical Marijuana May be an Alternative to Opiates in Minnesota
It’s not just Minnesotans with chronic pain who should see this as great news. It’s also good for the entire state, because medical marijuana can reduce the need for opioid painkillers.
Minnesota has been hard-hit by the opioid crisis, and it’s imperative to find alternative methods of managing pain, so that we can reduce overdoses and deaths.
What Is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is pain that endures for more than three months. It can be the result of an underlying cause, such as IBS, arthritis, or any other condition that induces severe pain.
However, even when a cause is known, chronic pain often remains after that underlying cause has been resolved. In some cases patients can even experience chronic pain that has no identifiable cause.
Obviously living in pain for months at a time is detrimental to quality of life. Even simple tasks like getting up in the morning and getting dressed can become overwhelming or impossible.
And chronic pain doesn’t just hurt the body. Living with the condition can leave patients stressed and emotionally crushed, leading many sufferers to struggle with depression and an inability to deal with daily tasks.

How is Chronic Pain Treated?
Chronic pain is frequently hard to treat. In recent years, this difficulty has led frustrated doctors and patients to turn with growing frequency to addictive opioid-based medications for relief.
The trend has been devastating nationally, as these increased prescriptions have led to increased addiction, and thus fueled the opioid epidemic.
Research has shown that THC effectively treats cancer patients’ pain, and without opioids’ negative side effects.
In addition to relieving pain for cancer patients, patients with other conditions have reported that medical marijuana alleviates pain caused by a wide variety of conditions, and that cannabis is especially useful in treating pain caused by neuropathy.
Lives and communities all across the nation have been ruined by opioid addiction, so perhaps it’s unsurprising that medical marijuana has been growing in popularity as an alternative for treating chronic pain.
Now Minnesotans too can find the relief that only cannabis can offer.
