Medical marijuana for pain relief

No matter which part of your body is affected, most medical condition causes some level of pain and discomfort. Chronic pain can be incapacitating, it might deny you a job opportunity or a chance to engage in hobbies and other leisure activities.

Some causes of such chronic pain include:

  • Back Pain Arthritis
  • Nerve Damage (Neuropathy)
  • Chronic Migraines

While painkillers as such oxycodone and morphine can be effective, they are associated with w high risk of dependence and addiction. This is dangerous and fatal, especially when administered in wrong dosage. Cannabis offers the same calming effect, though with less risks of abuse and health issues.

The scientific source for marijuana’s ability to work as a painkiller lies in the way its active ingredient affects the brain. It activates the body’s cannabinoid receptors that are found throughout the body organs.

Treating Nausea and Appetite

We all know that food strengthen the human body. While obesity has become a quite common scenario as a result of the blooming fast-food industries, under-eating also has its dangers. Calorie deficiency can leads to serious health problems such as vitamin deficiencies, impaired circulatory function, decreased bone density, and even death.

Some patients experience loss of appetite or chronic nausea resulting from treatments such as chemotherapy, and others cases are brought about by conditions such as depression, anorexia, and HIV/AIDS. For people who struggle to maintain a healthy appetite due to some medical conditions, marijuana may help them eat to achieve their nutrition requirements. In fact, Cannabis increases eating and weight in underweight individuals.
