Medical Benefits of Marijuana
Potential Benefits of Marijuana and Its Cannabinoids
1. Marijuana helps relieve nausea and vomiting in some chemotherapy patients
The most well-known cannabinoid in marijuana: THC, has shown to be extremely useful in relieving chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Buy marijuana online USA
A study done in 2001 found that chemotherapy: “patients who smoked cannabis showed a 70 – 100% relief from nausea and vomiting, while those who used a Δ9-THC capsule experienced 76 – 88% relief.”
2. Marijuana stimulates appetite and weight gain in AIDS, cancer and anorexia nervosa patients
Many studies throughout the years have shown marijuana use is directly correlated with increased appetite and weight. The exact mechanism is still unclear, but we do know there’s a high concentration of cannabinoid receptors in brain parts that are associated with control of food intake. Buy marijuana online USA
A couple of example studies:
A 1994 study which looked at the effects of marijuana on mean daily energy intake found that the mean daily energy intake of participants who used marijuana was significantly higher than when they didn’t use cannabis. Buy marijuana online USA
An experimental laboratory study done in 1988, found that smoked marijuana significantly increased total daily caloric intake by a whopping 40%!
3. Marijuana decreases spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis (MS)
The effects of marijuana on psychomotor dysfunction and spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis are well documented.
Multiple sclerosis patients receiving insufficient relief from traditional treatments, in different studies, have reported a dramatic decrease in spasticity when using marijuana. Especially smoking marijuana has strong evidence for decreasing spasticity and pain. Buy marijuana online USA
A study done in 2012 found that inhaled cannabis had a beneficial effect on spasticity among MS patients receiving insufficient relief from traditional treatments.
4. Marijuana could help with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
ALS is one of the 3 most deadly neurodegenerative diseases known to man. And while there’s a lot of research to be done, the initial studies done on animals show that cannabinoids have many neuroprotective properties which can be of use in treating ALS. Buy marijuana online USA
A 2006 study which looked at the effects of cannabinoid-receptor (the CB2 receptor to be exact) activation on ALS in mice, showed that activation of this cannabinoid had a significant increase in motor unit survival and motor neuron survival. And while the researchers didn’t test marijuana specifically, THC is known to activate the CB2 receptor as well, and in theory would have the same effects Further research should point if that’s really the case.

5. Marijuana reliefs all symptoms associated with spinal cord injury in some patients
Spinal cord injury can be a very impactful condition that interferes with your daily life. Some of the symptoms which particularly can interfere with your general well being are pain, muscle spasms, spasticity and difficulties sleeping. Multiple studies have shown that marijuana can help with all of these symptoms and improve the general quality of life of people suffering a spinal cord injury. Buy marijuana online USA
6. Marijuana can help with epilepsy
More and more studies suggest that epileptic activity is related to changes in the levels and distribution of cannabinoid receptors in the hippocampus. So it’s no coincidence that for over decades, cannabinoids have been shown to reduce seizures very effectively, especially in patients that have a resistance to traditional treatments.

7. Marijuana could alleviate chronic pain
Chronic pain is a complex condition which involves many factors and is a cause for reduced quality of life. Multiple clinical studies have shown that smoked or vaporized marijuana can lead to a significant decrease in chronic neuropathic pain associated with various syndromes and diseases. Buy marijuana online USA
For example: A 2011 study that looked at the effects of vaporized marijuana and its effects on chronic neuropathic pain found that vaping cannabis
3 times a day for 5 days resulted in a significant decrease (27%) of perceived pain, by chronic pain patients. Buy marijuana online USA
8. Marijuana may help treat bladder pain syndrome (BPS)
BPS can keep you up all night forcing you to frequent the bathroom at rather unwanted times. In 2014 researchers found that a synthetic activator of cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2), significantly decreased bladder inflammation and urinary frequency in mice with BPS. Buy marijuana online USA
This same cannabinoid receptor gets activated by THC, one of the main cannabinoids in marijuana. In theory, this could mean that marijuana,
through activating the CB2 receptor, has potential to help with BPS. Further research is needed to explore this potential. Buy marijuana online USA
9. Marijuana reduces headaches and migraine attacks in some patients
Ask anyone who is suffering from heavy migraine and that person will tell you what a hell he/she goes through while a migraine attack flares up. I have 2 friends who suffer heavily from migraine from time to time and marijuana helps them tremendously in coping with it. Buy marijuana online USA
Science has found that activation of the endocannabinoid system “could represent a promising therapeutical tool for reducing both the physiological and inflammatory components of pain that are likely involved in migraine attacks”. The cannabinoids found in marijuana are some of the most potent activators of the endocannabinoid system. As you can see, the anecdotal reports are slowly starting to get back-up from scientific research. Buy marijuana online USA
10. Marijuana could help with osteoarthritis (OA) by preventing cartilage breakdown
Although research on this topic is scarce, there have been some studies done on animals which have shown that activation of cannabinoid receptors helped controlling pain caused by OA.
Also, a more recent 2016 study which looked at the effects of CB2-receptor activation on cartilage breakdown in OA in humans, concluded that “cannabinoids may prevent cartilage breakdown in OA.” Buy marijuana online USA
All we can say to the medical world is: Open up the gates and find the resources to dive deeper into this.
11. Marijuana could relieve rheumatoid arthritis pain and stop its progress
Again the research on this topic is scarce, but the research that has been done is promising. Unlike OA, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks your joints. Marijuana-based medicines could help with massive pain relief caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Buy marijuana online USA
For example, a study done in 2005 found that a cannabis-based medicine named Sativex had significant pain relieving effects and significantly suppressed the disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis in human patients. Buy marijuana online USA
12. Marijuana can help with all symptoms associated with fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition which can severely affect your daily life through fatigue, cognitive and emotional disturbances. Although nothing suggests that marijuana could cure fibromyalgia, a growing body of evidence shows that marijuana could help with treating its symptoms. Buy marijuana online USA
For example: A 2011 study found that fibromyalgia patients that used cannabis, showed a significant reduction in stiffness and pain, enhancement of
relaxation and just a general increase in feelings of well being.
