We all hear stories of marijuana working wonders for people with chronic pain, seizures, and other physical health issues. But while research is limited and any conclusions must include all sorts of legal disclaimers, it may have some mental health value as well.

“Marijuana is frequently used as a Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) treatment for epilepsy, post- traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain, among other potentially debilitating illnesses,” said Dr. Jameson Lontz, a psychologist at Blue Mountain Psychology in Spokane. “Data shows that 2.8 million Americans use marijuana as CAM, and 22.2 million recreationally.”
