BY TWB \n When it comes to purchasing medical marijuana, most patients head to the dispensary and pick up pre-rolls or buds. What many don’t realize is that ensuring you have the proper strain and highest quality product starts long before you shop. Just as gardeners have learned that growing vegetables from seed is best, MMJ growers are finding more success in starting with seeds rather than cloned plants \n I should know. I was diagnosed with five eye diseases and Multiple Sclerosis by the age of 30. After battling the harsh side effects of my doctor-prescribed medications, I began experimenting with medical marijuana as a natural alternative. Medical cannabis is something that helps me cope with day to day life. It reduces the tremors and shakes from the MS and relieves the headaches and eye pain from my glaucoma. MMJ allows me to be a normal member of society without being in a drug induced coma from my prescription medication. \n I have spent the past decade researching the genetics of marijuana strains. I’m self-taught but being a patient myself, I’ve experimented with dozens of combos and pinpointed the specific strains that are most beneficial for specific health issues. \n I believe that MMJ has the ability to change modern medicine as we know it. I think about all those senior citizens out there battling some pretty devastating illnesses and between the costs of the drugs being prescribed and the side effects, MMJ is really a much better alternative for them. \n Here is what I recommend to MMJ patients: \n Sativa is used to treat: \n \n Depression & Anxiety \n Anorexia Nervosa \n Multiple Sclerosis (MS) \n Epilepsy \n Parkinson’s Disease \n Tourette’s Syndrome \n Glaucoma \n Bronchial Asthma \n Chron’s Disease \n Alzheimer’s \n \n Indica helps with the following: \n \n Sleeping disorders \n Nausea and vomiting \n Anorexia Nervosa \n Autism \n Multiple Sclerosis (MS) \n Spinal cord injury \n Epilepsy \n Cancer \n Parkinson’s Disease \n Tourette’s \n Glaucoma \n Bronchial Asthma \n Hypertension \n Psychiatric disorders \n Chron’s disease \n Alzheimers & wasting syndrome \n Loss of appetite in AIDS and cancer patients. \n \n Hybrids have been known to work for: \n \n Attention Deficit Disorder \n Restless leg syndrome \n Depression & Anxiety \n Anorexia Nervosa \n Multiple Sclerosis (MS) \n Epilepsy \n Parkinson’s Disease \n Tourette’s Syndrome \n Glaucoma \n Bronchial Asthma \n Chron’s Disease \n Alzheimer’s Disease \n Sleeping disorders \n Nausea and vomiting \n Spinal cord injury \n Wasting syndrome \n \n by Edward “Swerve” Clarizio \n About the Author \n As one of today’s most successful cannabis seed producers, Edward Clarizio of The Cali Connection , came into the business honestly.
