The plant has several medicinal characteristics which help patients relieve their health conditions with ease, as compared to the other standard methods.

Medical Marijuana pill
Based on a research, it has been proven that a marijuana pill can help relieve pain and have considerably longer effect on our body as compared to smoking a pot, which leaves the patient’s high in most cases.
Medical marijuana is widely prescribed by doctors as a pain reliever for patients suffering from chronic pain caused due to certain medical conditions such as arthritis, chemotherapy for cancer, etc. Based on a research by the Substance Use Research Center, New York Psychiatric Institute, wherein two strengths of smoked marijuana were studied against two strengths of Dronabinol, a drug containing the same THC as that in Marijuana. The patients were studied under 5 different research sessions wherein they were asked to dip their hands in water baths that were slightly above the freezing temperature. The patients who smoked marijuana and the ones who consumed the pills, both tolerated the pain equally. However, when the patients smoked marijuana for a longer time, it took them almost 12 secs to 13 secs longer to feel the pain as compared to those who were on the marijuana pills. However, there were little differences that showed medical marijuana when consumed as a medicine took more time to effect the system as compared to people who smoked pot. Hence, it was clearly proven that medical marijuana pill helped patients enhance their pain tolerance despite of their health conditions.
Smoking marijuana however has its own consequences, such as a probability for lung cancer. This is one reason why doctors prefer prescribing the magical medical marijuana pill than a dosage of marijuana smoke. Also, there is a small difference in the costing of the treatment procedures. smoking a pot costs you lesser than consuming the pill. But to help patients with such grave diseases, there are insurance policies that cover the marijuana pill costing. Thus, a patient consuming the pill would pay lesser amount than smoking a pot.
The drug Marinol is today one of the most widely prescribed medications by doctors for treating patients with their diseases.
