The treatment with medical cannabis summarized

We answer the most frequently asked questions about cannabinoid therapy and the use of medical cannabis in our guide.

Medical cannabis briefly explained

For many people in our society, cannabis is still an expression of the forbidden - a narcotic. In the meantime, however, its medicinal effect has been proven. And this is used in medical treatment to alleviate various complaints: Chronic pain, depression, migraine, ADHD, sleep disorders and many other indications are among them. In this case, we speak of medical cannabis.

Cannabinoids for the relief of chronic complaints

Cannabinoid therapy, built on this medical cannabis, is used to alleviate chronic ailments and reduce long-lasting physical ailments and disorders. If you are affected by physical limitations for more than three months, we talk about chronic ailments. In this case, it may make sense for you to talk to our doctors and see if cannabinoid therapy can provide you with mitigation. Shorter periods of discomfort we call acute - in this case cannabinoid therapy probably cannot help you.

Medical treatment with medicinal cannabis has only been officially permitted since 2017 - and its use is subject to prescription. The therapy is often used as a supplement to conventional medical treatment or if this does not bring the hoped-for effect. Compared to standard prescription medications, the side effects of treatment with medical cannabis can be significantly lower. The aim of cannabinoid therapy is primarily to mitigate the respective course of the disease, as it is not a first-choice drug. That is why the therapy is usually only used as a supplement to classical medicine or after other therapy has failed, in order to at least reduce the symptoms.
