What Is a Chronic Condition & What Does Having One Entail?

Most medical marijuana programs, including Minnesota’s, have medical conditions that make a person eligible. You may have heard of a “chronic” condition but might not know what that means.

Many people think chronic conditions last your whole life, but that is not necessarily true. A Chronic disease is any condition that lasts one or more years. These conditions also require ongoing medical attention.

Most times, chronic conditions limit a person’s activities or what they can do on a day-to-day basis. Some of the most commonly known chronic conditions include:

  • Heart disease

  • Cancer

  • Diabetes

How Common Are Chronic Conditions?

Did you know about 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 adults have two or more? This shocking statistic is 100% factual, according to the CDC.

With how common chronic conditions are, it is no surprise that they qualify a person for medical marijuana. Chronic diseases may also worsen overtime. Usually, the disease can be somewhat controlled but not cured.

What Causes Chronic Conditions?

Many of the most common chronic diseases result from one of these behaviors:

  • Tobacco use & secondhand smoke

  • Poor nutrition or diet

  • Physical inactivity

  • Excessive alcohol use

Eat healthy, exercise, and don’t drink or smoke. They seem so simple, but so many people develop chronic diseases as a direct result of these risky behaviors!
