Texas is getting ready to legalize Medical Marijuana usage for certain people

November 29, 2017

 It's not all what it seems, even though Texas is legalizing Marijuana for Medical use, only certain people are able to buy the products. The state will soon license dispensaries to sell low-THC cannabis products such as CBD oil for people diagnosed with intractable epilepsy, who suffer from seizures not controlled by traditional drugs.Once that medicine is in a liquid form, and packaged in drops, the first sales of medical marijuana will occur before the end of this year.the Department of Public Safety is currently looking for Texas Department of Information Resources vendors to develop the the framework for Compassionate Use Program's registry of physicians and dispensaries to prescribe and distribute low-THC cannabis products.

Medical cannabis has several potential beneficial effects. Evidence is moderate that it helps in chronic pain and muscle spasms.Low quality evidence suggests its use for reducing nausea during chemotherapy, improving appetite in HIV/AIDS, improving sleep, and improving tics in Tourette syndrome.When usual treatments are ineffective, cannabinoids have also been recommended for anorexia, arthritis, migraine, and glaucoma.There is insufficient data to draw strong conclusions about the safety of medical cannabis. Typically, adverse effects of medical cannabis use are not serious. These include: tiredness, dizziness, cardiovascular, psychoactive effects, and increased appetite. Tolerance to these effects develops over a period of days or weeks. The amount of cannabis normally used for medicinal purposes is not believed to cause any permanent cognitive impairment in adults, though long-term treatment in adolescents should be weighed carefully as they are more susceptible to these impairments. Withdrawal symptoms are rarely a problem with controlled medical administration of cannabinoids. The ability to drive vehicles or to operate machinery may be impaired until a tolerance is developed.Although supporters of medical cannabis say that it is safe,further research is required to assess the long-term safety of its use.
