Peripheral Neuropathy & Medical Marijuana
Peripheral neuropathy is burning, tingling, and painful feelings usually in the feet and legs, and also in the arms. The feeling is sometime like pins and needles poking skin, sometimes skin burns like a bad sunburn, and sometimes its just extremely painful.
Fortunately, medical marijuana is a proven treatment for peripheral neuropathy with plenty of science and research demonstrating many benefits, without the dangers of pharma drugs.
