Nausea and Medical Marijuana

Nausea and vomiting, regardless if due to AIDS treatment, chemotherapy, abdominal surgery and other causes can be remedied effectively via the use of medical marijuana. Patient’s experience and clinical tests indicate that smoking the pot can both relieve nausea and stimulate the appetite of patients with nausea, thus minimizing the risk of weight loss in patients who have AIDS or cancer.
Marijuana’s anti-nausea effects are well-known scientifically and among users who have experienced relief. Smoking medical marijuana offers superior cure for vomiting compared to THC that is ingested orally. Most patients prefer to smoke or vaporize it instead of taking a THC pill. Patients could be allowed to grow their own medical marijuana at home instead of traveling to a pharmacy to get their medication, which depends on the local laws.
It has been proven that medical marijuana is effective for patients whose nausea does not respond to other medications. In a study, fifty-six patients treated whose symptoms of nausea had not responded to the traditional medication, out of these fifty-six, seventy-eight percent noticed an improvement after they smoked medical marijuana. These patients claimed that their nausea and vomiting were considerably minimized after smoking marijuana compared to taking in their usual medication.
