SURVEY RESULTS: Medical Marijuana

SURVEY RESULTS: Medical Marijuana
Last month the editors of ProHealth ran a survey about medical marijuana.

Marijuana (aka cannabis) is a plant that has been used for centuries for a variety of ailments. In recent times cannabis has been used for nausea, pain, insomnia, headaches, and to increase appetite. As of April 2015, 24 states and Washington D.C. have legalized cannabis for medical use and seven states have pending legislation.

We asked our ProHealth readers if they had tried medical marijuana, and if so, how they responded. You can see the results of the survey below.

Note: For a list of states that have approved medical marijuana, click HERE.


While most respondents reported a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, and/or arthritis, disease categories were very wide-ranging. Some of the diagnosed health conditions were: Hashimoto's thyroiditis, migraine headaches, depression, degenerative disc disease, glaucoma, lupus, interstitial cystitis, IBS, multiple sclerosis, endometriosis, PCOS, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), Sjogrens syndrome, osteoarthritis, depression, diabetes, post polio syndrome, restless leg syndrome, PTSD, cervical stenosis, gastroparesis, leaky gut, Grave's disease, brain damage, bipolar disorder, insomnia, and anxiety.

Most respondents reported that they chiefly used medical marijuana for pain (general pain, nerve pain, and headaches). Anxiety, insomnia, and depression also figured prominently. Interestingly, some people reported that medical marijuana helped reduce their use of pharmaceuticals by half. Another respondent noted that it had helped her with withdrawal symptoms, a common side effect of antidepressants and anxiolytics.

More than half reported “very good” results from medical marijuana, which is perhaps why nearly all the respondents who hadn't taken medical marijuana said they would be interested in trying it.
