Whilst many people have long known about the therapeutic effects of medical cannabis, scientific studies have recently confirmed that medical cannabis can be an effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions and symptoms.  Unlike most prescription medications, medical cannabis can have therapeutic effects on both the mind and body in relatively small amounts, without the side-effects often associated with traditional prescription and over-the-counter medications.  Whether you are looking for a natural, alternative treatment or a complementary treatment to western medicine, medical cannabis is the natural choice for total wellness and health.

Women may be from Venus and men from Mars, but that is not where the difference between the sexes ends.  Our bodies are different and as such, men experience conditions, symptoms and illnesses that are unique.  The good news is that medical cannabis does not distinguish between the sexes, but it can offer much needed relief to men for gender specific conditions.

Medical Cannabis Can Be Used For a Variety of Conditions:

ADHD /ADD Depression Migraines
ALS Diabetes Multiple Sclerosis
Alzheimer’s Epilepsy Pain
Anxiety Fibromyalgia Parkinson’s
Arthritis Gastrointestinal PTSD
Asthma Glaucoma Schizophrenia
Autism Health Skin Conditions
Autoimmune Heart Disease Sleep
Cancer HIV/AIDS Stress
Cerebral Palsy Huntington’s Strokes
COPD Lupus  Ulcerative Colitis
Dementia Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)

Prostate cancer and cancer-related symptoms are among the primary reasons that men turn to medical cannabis as an alternative.  Pre-clinical evidence suggests that cannabis has an anti-proliferative effect on cancer cells and that medical cannabis prevents cancer cells from spreading and adhering to new, healthy tissues. Medical cannabis is also known to help prevent cancer, by mainly using CBD with lesser amounts of THC, or a combination in a 1:1 ratio.

To treat prostate cancer, higher dosages of both THC and CBD are vital. It is one of the easier cancers to treat whilst it is in its earlier states, with PSA counts being relatively low and where the cancer has not had the opportunity to spread.

Our organic medical cannabis oils are one of the most natural ways to combat a number of health issues without the risk of developing new ones. Our products are proving to be extremely valuable for people of all walks of life, age, and with all types of health problems.

Every person is unique and each individual responds differently.  For diseases which are specifically related to men, CannaMedica would be able to assist and advise you in finding the right combination of medical cannabis for your specific needs.  In additional to the medicinal qualities that medical cannabis offers, cannabinoids like CBD are also excellent nutritional supplements and can aid in combating stress and fatugue.
