Colorado Medical Marijuana Doctors

Colorado medical marijuana doctors intend on defending the rights of marijuana patients by using education and community participation. Many patients seeking alternative forms of medicine are naturally attracted to the special practices of these doctors. All patients that seek medical marijuana are put through a heavily detailed screening process, and unqualified patients are turned away. Medical marijuana is only intended for use in "debilitating medical conditions," such as cancer, HIV, seizures, fibromyalgia, and more. Most patients are registered for medical marijuana usage to assist with chronic pain.

AIDS patients take a lot of pills. The HIV virus attacks the body’s immune system on multiple fronts, causing intense nausea and lack of appetite. What that often means is, AIDS patients rarely feel like eating, and if by some miracle they manage to choke something down, it’s more likely than not to make them feel even sicker. Commonly referred to as AIDS wasting, dramatic weight loss is a common side effect for patients with end stage AIDS, but even those less far along experience issues with their appetite, as well as the ability of the body to process nourishment.
