Side effects of Medical Marijuana

Side effects of marijuana can be as innocent as increase in appetite to as threatening as cancer in the lungs. While medical marijuana is know to cure a lot of symptoms for more than 4,00o years now, just like other drugs, it also has side effects. Some of these side effects are the following:
1. Drowsiness, also known as hypnesthesia. It is a state with a desire to sleep. Although this could interfere with a person’s ability to stay alert during working hours, those with insomnia will find this beneficial in alleviating their condition. Avoid driving when you are using medical marijuana.
2. Thirst or Dry Mouth is another side effect common in medical marijuana. This rarely if ever interferes with your daily activities and can be easily alleviated at home.
3. Giddiness could result in bouts of laughter. Although considered as medical marijuana side effect, the laughter could be beneficial to one’s health.
4. Hunger or commonly referred as ‘munchies’ is a very common effect. Hunger-inducing effects are the reason why a lot of patients use medical marijuana, like those patients suffering from anorexia, severe nausea, HIV/AIDS, cancer patients who are undergoing radiation or chemotherapy treatments.
5. Red Eyes is common for patients after taking marijuana. This is temporary, harmless and painless.
