December 22, 2022 from Marijuana Moment and NuggMD
Nugg MD, a cannabis technology company that links people to doctors via telemedicine for medical cannabis recommendations, shared the results of the analysis exclusively with Marijuana Moment. The dataset was based on more than 210,000 anonymized patient records.
One of the key findings concerns health conditions that people cite as the reason for seeking out medical cannabis. State programs vary in what is considered a qualifying condition for marijuana, with some restricting it to a specific list of illnesses and others giving doctors discretion to recommend cannabis for whatever maladies they see fit.
The report found that, across the U.S., most people receive medical marijuana recommendations for chronic pain (26.3 percent), anxiety (18.9 percent) and post-traumatic stress disorder (12.4 percent).
