Treating The Side Effects Of Chemotherapy With Cannabis Blog
Marijuana has been used in herbal remedies for centuries. Scientists have identified many biologically active components in marijuana that can help provide relief to people suffering from the effects of chemotherapy. The primary uses of the herb is to help manage symptoms like nausea, pain, and vomiting. How Cannabis Helps with Nausea and Vomiting A 2016 review of the available scientific literature found that cannabis compounds (real, not synthetic) effectively reduce the unpleasant and debilitating side effects of chemotherapy. THC is one of the primary active ingredients in cannabis. It’s this compound that can cause the “high” reported by marijuana users, and also can help relieve pain and nausea, reduce inflammation, and can act as an antioxidant. This relief is created by the way cannabis interacts with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a large cell receptor network responsible for a range of bodily functions. These include: Mood Memory Sleep Pain perception Immune function Appetite and metabolism Mobility The nervous system that lives in the gut is disrupted when chemotherapy treatment is given to a patient. A recent study found that the endocannabinoid system controls visceral sensitivity in the gut and cannabis reacts very favorably to this nerve network. When cannabis compounds engage the endocannabinoid system, is has an impact on providing relief for stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting by calming it down significantly. Many patients have said that cannabis provides them with far more relief than the competing pharmaceutical options. Important Reminder It’s important to not that smoke from any burning material contains carcinogens, which are not helpful to those with immune systems suppressed by chemotherapy. Patients who wish to use cannabis during chemotherapy treatment may benefit from other forms of consumption besides smoking the herb, like edibles, vaporization, and cannabis oil. We implore you do more research on using cannabis oils to help treat the cancer itself!
