Decades of research point to a variety of medical uses for this unique compound.
1. Pain Relief
Cannabis has been shown to be especially effective against neuropathic pain, or nerve-related pain. In the central nervous system, THC activates pathways which work to block pain signals from being sent to the brain.
THC can help relieve a variety of PTSD-related symptoms including flashbacks, agitation and nightmares.
3. Nausea and Vomiting
THC has been available in pill form for treating nausea and vomiting in cancer patients since the 1980s.
4. Appetite Stimulant
THC is known to work as a powerful appetite stimulant in both healthy and sick individuals. THC can also stimulate weight gain in patients with anorexia.
Smoking marijuana can help calm asthma attacks. THC’s ability to improve breathing in asthmatics is supported by research dating back to the 1970s.
THC helps to relieve eye pressure in patients with glaucoma.
7. Sleep Aid
THC helps both healthy individuals and insomniacs fall asleep faster. Updated research suggests THC may also improve nighttime breathing and reduce sleep interruptions in those who suffer from a common disorder known as sleep apnea.
And so many more....
MEDICINAL COMPOUNDS IN MARIJUANA
Cannabis contains almost 500 compounds, of which about 80 are used for medicine and science. Five of these compounds are used frequently in medicine:
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the chemical in marijuana that produces its psychoactive effects. This chemical has been proven to also be a mild pain reliever and sleep inducer, as well as an antioxidant.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the primary compounds extracted for medical marijuana. CBD has been proven to relieve convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, cough, congestion, and nausea, and it also inhibits cancer cell growth.
Cannabinol (CBN) is thought to inhibit the spread of cancer cells.
β-caryophyllene is used to reduce inflammation.
Cannabigerol relieves intraocular pressure of the eye, so it’s used in the treatment of glaucoma.
