Osteoporosis is a condition affecting the strength of your bones (called bone density). In osteoporosis, bones lose strength and become more fragile. Your bones are made up of minerals, such as calcium. When bones lose these minerals, they become thinner and less dense. Osteoporotic bones break or crack more easily than normal bones. There are normally no signs or symptoms of osteoporosis until a bone breaks. Any bone can be affected but the most common breaks are found in the hip, spine, wrist, ribs and pelvis.trees in jungle

Osteoporosis is typically treated with medications that stimulate bone growth. While the medications are effective, they can cause side effects of nausea, abdominal pain, swallowing difficulties, and an increased risk of ulcers.

Can Medical Cannabis help my osteoporosis?

Cannabis has a long history of human use. Most ancient cultures didn’t grow the plant to get high, but as herbal medicine, likely starting in Asia around 500 BC. The history of cannabis cultivation in America dates back to the early colonists, who grew hemp for textiles and rope. Misuse in the 20th century led to the prohibition of cannabis globally although its legal status is changing in many countries.
