While marijuana remains a debated topic among many within the United States, many people who are chronically ill swear by the natural substance that helps them experience relief from pain associated by their illness. While studies typically focused on chronically ill patients, there have now been many studies conducted on those who experience autoimmune diseases. This article will explore some surprising effects that marijuana can have on ill patients.

  1. It is common to hear about cancer patients utilizing marijuana in pill form during the final stages of life to help manage pain. It is less common however to hear about patients who are diagnosed with other common ailments such as but not limited to asthma and Crohn’s disease. In fact, in a small study conducted in 2015, researches found that over a three month period, Crohn’s patients experienced less pain and diarrhea when inhaling cannabis on a regular basis than before. In some instances, patients even gained weight and made them happier.
  2. Other studies have found that there are even more surprising facts about cannabis use among those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, tourette’s, and glaucoma. In fact, cannabis has been found to slow the spreading of HIV/Aids and halts the long-term affects of Alzheimer’s. While patients who are typically given access to this product are in the late stages of life, there is no doubt that cannabis helps them cope, feel less pain, and experience a more relaxed state of being.
  3. While some say that using medical marijuana is inconsistent in its results, those that use it report feeling less anxious, more relaxed, and all around happier than before they started using the drug. Some physicians also claim that while many prescribed drugs can cause adverse side effects, medical marijuana provides less and often times many will not notice anything at all.

When the mainstream population thinks of consuming marijuana for medicinal purposes, they often think of smoking the plant. While this is certainly a way to access its’ benefits, the better way to receive positive results is by eating it. Some are crushing the plant into small sugar-like granules to bake with. Others are mixing the plant in with their other produce to make a healthy smoothy. Some are even getting creative and making cannabis cheese fries. There are a variety of ways to utilize the plant to reap its’ benefits. All you have to do is have an open mind and get creative in the kitchen.
The research is fascinating and as the topic remains one of great interest among legislators in many states, it is quite possible that society will be accessing cannabis products for home medicinal use in the near future.
