As we ring in the new year, our pharmacists at WholesomeCo are ready to assist in your personal cannabis journey. Here are 5 ways Utah patients might use medical cannabis in the new year.

1. Winter Aches and Pains

This winter season, patients may turn to medical cannabis to relieve discomfort caused by soreness from skiing or other winter sports. Patients in Utah often turn to medical cannabis to alleviate chronic pain, which could increase throughout the winter months with more physical activity. Whether your muscles need relief after completing a new year’s fitness routine or cold dreary weather is causing achy joints, different medical cannabis products may help with your symptoms.

2. Complementary Medicine 

A new year serves as a great opportunity for a fresh start to focus on your well-being. For those feeling stuck in a routine that could be negatively impacting their health and happiness, our pharmacists often recommend cannabis to assist. Utah patients often use medical cannabis products in conjunction with pharmaceutical drugs to improve quality of life. Whether it is medicinally used alongside traditional pharmaceutical drugs or eliminating them altogether, cannabis may provide another option to help patients to take control of their health.

3. Mental Health 

Cannabis is generally known to help treat stress, anxiety, and depression. Many qualified conditions in Utah can trigger these mental disorders, having a negative effect on one’s everyday life. It can be hard to take control of mental health as the new year begins and many individuals begin to face seasonal depression. This year, WholesomeCo strives to help patients achieve the mental relaxation and clarity necessary to live a healthy life.

4. Ease PTSD Symptoms 

The holiday season could be a common trigger for those who struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. As we transition into 2022, cannabis may help patients cope with PTSD symptoms such as disturbed sleep, anxiety, flashbacks, and avoidant behaviors. Our pharmacists can recommend different cannabis products to help reduce the emotional distress relating to a traumatic event.

5. Alleviate Nausea and Digestive Issues

Patients in Utah experiencing constant nausea and digestive issues may turn to medical cannabis to help treat symptoms this year and limit stomach discomfort. Certain cannabinoids in cannabis are known to have pain relieving, anti-nausea, and antiemetic effects, allowing patients to increase their appetite or manage a healthy level of eating.
