Medical Marijuana In Utah

Scientific studies that show cannabis is a safe and effective treatment for various medical conditions.  Utah passed Proposition 2 in 2018, allowing medical marijuana use for individuals who have a medical marijuana card. 

 

While there should not be any stigma associated with using cannabis as medicine, for some people, reservations still remain.  Rest assured, many common medications are based on plant components, inclucing penicillin, aspirin, digitoxin, and theophylline, for example.  The human body is full of receptors for various components of cannabis, called the endocanabanoid system. Terpenes, canabanoids like CBD, and THC (the part of cannabis that has affects your mood, memory, awareness, and sensation) interact with different parts of your cells and have effects that can benefit the conditions listed below.
