ALS Marijuana Research Studies

Growing evidence suggests marijuana-based therapies may work better than current FDA-approved medication in treating ALS; researchers believe marijuana’s antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties could slow disease progression.

Cannabis has also demonstrated efficacy in treating the following ALS symptoms:

  • Excessive salivation
  • Involuntary movements
  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain
  • Seizures

Before purchasing marijuana from a Florida medical marijuana treatment center (MMTC) – or dispensary – patients must first qualify for a medical marijuana certification; CannaMD provides qualified patients with the state-required recommendation to complete this process.

According to Florida state law, patients suffering from ALS may qualify for medical marijuana treatment.

Patients can see if they qualify for free by completing a brief form or calling 1 (855) 420-9170.

For additional information on ALS, please see CannaMD‘s ALS Patient Resource Page.

CannaMD welcomes the opportunity to connect with fellow physicians and facilitate medical cannabis care.
