Benefits of Medical Marijuana

Marijuana strains can affect each person in a different way. What helps one person may not be the solution for another. However, there are general and accepted benefits of using medical marijuana that is changing lives of people everywhere.


Regulates appetite: Marijuana is well known for giving its users the “munchies” and this is especially beneficial for cancer patients who are not able to keep a healthy appetite during treatment. It can also benefit anyone who has trouble due to other illnesses, or perhaps anorexia and bulimia.


Suppresses nausea: This is also incredibly beneficial for cancer patients and another kind of patient who might have to take in a kind of medicine that doesn’t react well with their bodies. This is why certain marijuana strains are often used to help those going through chemotherapy.


Helps against epileptic seizures: It has been proven that medical marijuana can help prevent epileptic seizures. The regular relaxation that marijuana gives its users can fight against the incredibly strong muscle spasms that plague those with epilepsy.


Helps against anxiety: The calming effects of certain marijuana strains can help those who have crippling anxiety. Instead of relying on potentially harmful medication to fight against those mental fears, they can instead turn towards medical marijuana as a different alternative.


Helps with pain suppression: The cannabinoids found in marijuana can help fight against pain. An added bonus is that, when used alongside other kinds of pain medication, particular marijuana strains work with the medication to increase the effects. This makes the two medications mesh together to create a stronger relief than they would have been on their own.


Slows progression of Alzheimer’s Disease: There are certain studies going on that are showing promising results regarding the use of marijuana and Alzheimer’s disease. The study says that THC could help to slow the formation of the harmful plaques that grow inside the brain that eventually develops into Alzheimer’s.

I'd go further ─ and say that regular use of cannabis will prevent Alzheimer's disease from occurring in the first place...

Why are you tasting your taint? There's no medical benefit to that.

Thanks for sharing Unfortunately that is a very short list. When I find my link I will post it (more than 100 discussed). I am a diabetic and use cannabis to treat my ailment.


Bold text:

For those that have been following me, I can no longer smoke the buds. So I ingest my cannabis. Cannabis can be an appetite suppressor as well. Although none of the strains I ingest have appetite boosters in them, taking a cap 1hr prior to meals negates the munchies. IME it is "the down" that gives you the munchies. Succumbing to the munchies will further drop you down, compounding the problem.


Wrt every strain is different and every strain affects people differently. My wife tried Gdp for insomnia (on my recommendation. (She has no problem falling asleep, she has problems staying asleep)). She had no problem falling alseep but when the pill hit it's full glory at around hr 3, she was wide awake for the rest of the night. Needless to say she wasn't a happy camper! Cap = 4 to 6hrs


When you use cannabis as medicine, you learn to "dial" your meds in by, selecting the appropriate strain (no sense using something that will simply $$$$ your wallet) and simply get you high. vice simply tooting on a doobie for recreational use.
