Benefits of Medical Marijuana
Decades of research have found that cannabis is very effective at reducing symptoms and curing causes for a wide range of conditions.
How Expensive is Medical Marijuana?
Medical Marijuana – when compared to traditional medicine – is very cost effective. However, there are a few caveats.
For one, Medical Marijuana is not covered by health insurance. Often times however, Medical Marijuana is cheaper than the co-pay on traditional drugs.
And secondly, Medical Marijuana is a plant. Just like produce at the local grocery store, the cost of cannabis depends on the quality of the plant, the time of year, and the demand for a particular strain.
Overall, Medical Marijuana is an effective and affordable method to treat many conditions.
How Is Medical Marijuana Taken?
