Sciatica is a pain that begins in the lower area of the back and then follows the sciatic nerve into the leg. This can be caused by an irritation to the sciatic nerve, it can be due to damage to the nerve or due to another medical condition.
This is a medical condition that anti-inflammatory medications are prescribed and this means side effects and possible addiction.

There are numerous studies that researchers and scientists have conducted that have proven data that the properties in medical marijuana are a safe and effective treatment as an anti-inflammatory and to reduce pain, without causing side effects.
