Smoking or eating herbal marijuana is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  However, the FDA has approved the prescription of pills containing THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) as one option for:

  • Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy who have persistent nausea and vomiting
  • People with AIDS wasting syndrome who have no appetite

Alternative non-marijuana-related medications approved by the FDA also exist for the above two conditions. Other symptoms and diseases should be treated with other non-marijuana, FDA-approved medications. More information is available on this printable fact sheet and at the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
