Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2019 -- Nature's Way Medicine is an advocate for medical marijuana for patients who are in search of treatment for chronic pain due to Fibromyalgia and other medical conditions. Fibromyalgia is a common condition that causes widespread muscle pain and tenderness, often followed by fatigue, memory problems, and mood swings.

In the early 1990s, researchers discovered the endocannabinoid system, along with receptors located in the central nervous system, the peripheral nervous system, and organs related to immunity. The receptors discovered in these systems respond to the cannabinoids made by the body, as well as those found in cannabis. In more recent years, there have been several connections made linking FMS to the endocannabinoid system.

There have been studies demonstrating the effectiveness of cannabis to treat symptoms relating to FMS. These symptoms include chronic pain, insomnia, and migraines. Although prescription medications are traditionally recommended by practitioners for these symptoms, they are not the only treatment option. A study published in The Journal of Pain found that patients suffering from chronic pain who substituted medical marijuana for opioids felt the symptomatic relief of cannabis was significantly greater.

The challenge with medical marijuana is that only 32 states have legalized it, while residents of the remaining 19 states continue to suffer through symptoms of this incurable condition. Nature's Way Medicine aids patients in procuring their medical marijuana card so that they may utilize this resourceful drug for various health conditions.

Nature's Way Medicine has certified physicians available for primary care appointments as well as comprehensive medical marijuana assessments. This assessments are thoroughly conducted to ensure patients are aware of both the risks and benefits of cannabis use, as with any other drug.
