Diseases Treated by Cannabis

Diseases Treated by Medicinal Cannabis

Insomnia, depression, anxiety disorders, and PTSD can all be greatly alleviated by the use of medicinal cannabis. Depending on the type of anxiety disorder there are different ways to ingest, and different types of cannabis to use accordingly.

Pain, tremors, seizures, muscle spasm & convulsions can be greatly stopped by cannabis use as well. CBD signaling is a key regulator of synaptic neurotransmission throughout the brain. Evidence indicates that CBD plays an internal protective role in suppressing pathologic neuronal excitability, which leads to development of epileptic seizures (A. Ludanyi el al., 2008)

HIV, AIDS, wasting conditions, that affect the immune system can all be greatly alleviated by using Cannabis. It has been observed to lessen the frequency of hot flashes, reducing nausea, increasing appetite, and enables you to go back to your normal body weight. Improved ratings of sleep and increases in food intake with 3.9% THC.

Tumours of all types have been reduced with the use of cannabis. The THC and CBN (Cannabiniol) can inhibit tumor growth by 25% to 82% without damaging normal cells (Harris el al., 1974). Cannabis cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in ½ & significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread (ScienceDaily, 2007).

Epilepsy patients have found benefits in the use of cannabis to stop eye tremors, which can be reduced or stopped completely after even just one puff. Ingested cannabis in small doses will help reduce the level of seizures and help keep bladder and bowel control.

Multiple Sclerosis & Muscular Dystrophy conditions have positive reactions with steady doses of cannabis. Along with the combined benefits of lecithin in baked goods, there has been positive reduction in tremors, fatigue, and spasms. CBD helps those with MS and MD live convulsion free without toxicity, behavioral impairment or tolerance.

Hepatitis C and other liver ailments benefit from daily ingestion of cannabis and THC. It stimulates the liver to create it’s own healing enzymes, along with many benefits.

Glaucoma sufferers should ingest Cannabis on a very regular basis keeping intraocular pressures even at all times to avoid permanent damage to the optic disc of the retina.
