Your Medicinal Benefits of Marijuana Questions
According to the Mayo Clinic, Medical marijuana is effective in controlling many forms of pain and has many benefits such as alleviating nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy; Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS); Anorexia due to HIV/AIDS; Chronic pain; Crohn’s disease; Epilepsy or seizures; Glaucoma; Multiple sclerosis or severe muscle spasms; Nausea, vomiting or severe wasting associated with cancer treatment; Terminal illness; and Tourette syndrome.
Cannabinoids, the active components of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in laboratory animals and also kill cancer cells. THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.
Since medicinal marijuana was legalized in California, doctors have reported that they have been able to treat more than 300,000 cases of migraines that conventional medicine couldn’t through marijuana.
Marijuana’s effects on multiple sclerosis patients became better documented when former talk-show host, Montel Williams began to use pot to treat his MS. Marijuana works to stop the neurological effects and muscle spasms that come from the fatal disease.
IBS (inflammatory bowel diseases) and Crohn’s
Marijuana has shown that it can help with symptoms of the chronic diseases as it stops nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological condition characterized by uncontrollable facial grimaces, tics, and involuntary grunts, snorts and shouts. Dr. Kirsten Mueller-Vahl of the Hanover Medical College in Germany led a team that investigated the effects of chemicals called cannabinols in 12 adult Tourette’s patients. A single dose of the cannabinol produced a significant reduction in symptoms for several hours compared to placebo, the researchers reported.
Marijuana’s treatment of glaucoma has been one of the best documented. There isn’t a single valid study that exists that disproves marijuana’s very powerful and popular effects on glaucoma patients.
Just like marijuana is used to treat IBS, it can be used to treat the cramps and discomfort that causes PMS symptoms. Using marijuana for PMS actually goes all the way back to Queen Victoria.
ADD and ADHD
A well documented USC study done about a year ago showed that marijuana is not only a perfect alternative for Ritalin but treats the disorder without any of the negative side effects of the pharmaceutical.
Marijuana is a muscle relaxant and has “antispasmodic” qualities that have proven to be a very effective treatment for seizures. There are actually countless cases of people suffering from seizures that have only been able to function better through the use of marijuana.
Despite what you may have heard about marijuana’s effects on the brain, the Scripps Institute, in 2006, proved that the THC found in marijuana works to prevent Alzheimer’s by blocking the deposits in the brain that cause the disease.
A study published in 2014 found that an isolated cannabis compound, cannabidiol (CBD), exhibited effects that may suppress the inflammation and oil production associated with acne. The study was performed using human sebocytes, which are special skin cells that produce oil in the skin.
The connection between cannabis and endometriosis is a complex one. Some research suggests that cannabinoid medicines may provide pain relief to those with endometriosis. Others have found dysregulations in endocannabinoid levels during certain phases of the menstrual cycle. These imbalances were found in tissue samples taken from women with endometriosis. More research is needed to figure out just how cannabis and cannabis medicines affect the disorder, but endometriosis may be one of the possible medical uses of cannabis.
