Kidney stones are one of the medical conditions that cause extreme pain and in some cases nausea. There are some people that get occasional kidney stones, while others have chronic kidney stones, which is a condition called nephorlithiasis. There are medical professionals that prescribe medical marijuana, rather than the conventional medications like Percocet, hydrocodone, oxycontin and vicodin in high dosages. All of these conventional medications have side effects and they are highly addicting.
Medical marijuana has properties that can help relieve the pain that is usually isolated to the lower back on the side of the affected kidney and it also has properties proven to be effective at fighting nausea. Medical marijuana can effectively work for the kidney stone patient, without the side effects or addiction associated with the conventional medications that can also cause nausea as one of their side effects.
