Fatigue is one of the most common problems that patients bring to their family doctors. Extensive testing usually provides no disease diagnosis and little positive medical findings can be found. Many patients who become severely petite are labeled with CFS, or chronic fatigue syndrome. This is a very common condition in our society.
Traditional medical treatment includes antidepressants, sleeping pills and other nonspecific treatment. Medicinal marijuana is often very effective in management of CFS because it acts as a regulator or modulator on the endogenous cannabinoid system in our bodies. This not only can cause increased energy through the day but also can lead to a more normal sleep pattern which is an important positive factor in management of CFS.
