Dr. Tod Mikuriya was a pioneering psychiatrist who spent his career researching and advocating for the medical use of cannabis. Through his work, Dr. Mikuriya treated over 9,000 patients with cannabis and maintained a list of more than 200 ailments that could be relieved by its use. Today, his list remains a significant contribution to the medical cannabis community and a valuable resource for patients that are seeking alternative treatments to opioids and synthetic medicines.

What’s included in Dr Mirkuriya’s list?

Dr. Mikuriya’s list includes both physical and mental health conditions that can benefit from the use of cannabis. One of the most significant contributions of his list is its potential to help patients struggling with chronic and debilitating conditions. Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons why patients seek medical cannabis, and Dr. Mikuriya’s list highlights the fact that cannabis can be a safe and effective alternative to traditional pain medications, which can be addictive and have harmful side effects.

Another important aspect of Dr. Mikuriya’s list is the insights it provides on the potential for cannabis to provide relief for patients who are undergoing cancer treatment. Nausea and vomiting are common side effects of chemotherapy, and cannabis has been shown to alleviate these symptoms forin many patients. Additionally, cannabis can help to stimulate the appetite, which is crucial for patients who may experience weight loss due to their condition.

Using cannabis as a solution for mental health conditions

Dr. Mikuriya’s list also highlights the potential of cannabis to alleviate mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression. These conditions can be debilitating, and many patients have found relief through the use of cannabis. However, it’s worth noting that while cannabis can be helpful for some patients, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution, and it’s important for patients to work closely with their doctors and prescribing clinics to determine if cannabis is the right treatment option for them.

Why does the list continues to be a staple guide in the world of medical cannabis?

Dr. Mikuriya’s list is not only a valuable resource for patients, but it also serves as a reminder of the significant contributions that medical professionals have made to the cannabis movement. Dr. Mikuriya’s research and advocacy helped pave the way for the legalization of medical cannabis in many states, and his list remains a powerful testament to the potential of cannabis as a medicine.

It’s important to note that while cannabis can be a helpful alternative treatment for many patients, prescriptions for medical cannabis are subject to a doctor’s evaluation. Medical professionals will evaluate the patient’s medical history, current medications, and overall health before determining if cannabis is a safe and appropriate treatment option. This evaluation is crucial to ensure that patients receive proper care and that medical cannabis is used safely and effectively. Dr. Mikuriya’s list serves as a valuable resource for patients seeking alternative treatments.
