Marijuana and Medicine

Dr. Sergio Jaramillo

There are some indications for marijuana in medicine, explains Doctor Sergio Jaramillo, Neurologist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center. Most of the time, when people think of marijuana, they think of a recreational drug and it can give them a euphoric effect. For these reasons it’s abused, he adds.

There are medical benefits for certain compounds within marijuana: they can certainly heighten people's senses, can calm people's nerves, many people can use this drug like a crutch to feel more comfortable in social gatherings and whatnot, he explains.

Its use should be monitored by a doctor, because when marijuana is used medically, it is an option for some medical conditions like cancer pain, the Doctor affirms.
