The use of medical marijuana is increasingly being recognized as an effective treatment for a variety of illnesses and diseases. Some examples of symptoms and common illnesses treated with medical marijuana can include but are not limited to chronic pain and muscle spasms, nausea, seizure disorders, various types of cancer and diabetes.
Cannabis is illegal for recreational use in much of the world and in the United States, however through the support of physicians and patients who have found medical marijuana to be effective in treatment of illness, some states have legalized the use of medical cannabis. This allowance is only if a prescription is written and it will be used to treat a recognized or specific condition.

The capsules are the two synthetic drugs, Nabilone or Marinol, that have been approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration that contain medicinal marijuana.
