Greenway Shows Patients How to Cope with Potential Side Effects of Medicinal Cannabis Use

Greenway offers high quality care through a compassionate health care delivery model with physician evaluations.

Greenway Medical Marijuana Physician Evaluations advises patients about how to cope with the potential side effects of medicinal cannabis use. There are simple remedies advocated that will relieve the main common side effects of cannabis use.

The “munchies” is one side effect that can negatively affect a patient’s health if not controlled. This is easily handled by consuming high fiber foods like raw fruit and crunchy vegetables rather than fatty chips or cookies. High fiber snacks help control the appetite and may improve the health of patients.

Dry Mouth is a second side effect. Greenway discourages people experiencing “cotton mouth” from trying to cure it with alcohol and high-sugar beverages, because they are unhealthy and dehydrating. Drinking cold water with lemon may ease dry mouth and will not interfere with the positive effects of the medical cannabis.

Some patients have experienced anxiety and frequent panic attacks. These patients may not realize that using Cannabis sativa could be causing this. Indica strains are recommended for anxiety, particularly when it manifests as panic attacks.

Though it is a rare condition, Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome can occur, when a patient vomits repeatedly in cycles over the course of hours or days. Stopping the consumption of cannabis alleviates this condition.

Positive side effects of medicinal marijuana use that have been reported by patients are increased focus, creativity, productivity, and enhanced appreciation of music, food and art.

Greenway’s Medical Director Dr. Arif Khan, a cannabis-knowledgeable physician, will be happy to discuss the right combination and various methods of medical marijuana use with Greenway patients. Based on his shared experience at Greenway, he formulates an individualized treatment plan which incorporates the different strains of cannabis, guiding the patient through the initial experience and ensuring that he or she gets the best possible treatment plan.
