Are there any health benefits of marijuana?
Hello, I have always heard marijuana Marijuana is smoked for nausea, glaucoma, appetite stimulation, to reduce swelling of mucous membranes. Marijuana is an herb. It contains chemicals called cannabinoids that affect the central nervous system. Cannabinoids are found in the highest concentration in the leaves. I also heard that marijuana is very unsafe when smoked. I know there are a lot of side effects of this herb but are there any benefits of the marijuana herb? If yes then please let me know in the comments. Thank You!
@johnann Hello, yes along with its side effects marijuana has multiple health benefits like fever, dandruff, hemorrhoids, obesity, asthma, urinary tract infections, cough, anorexia associated with weight loss in AIDS patients, nerve pain, and multiple sclerosis. It is also inhaled to weaken the immune system after a kidney transplant to lessen the chance of transplant rejection. In addition, marijuana is smoked to reduce symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Some people use marijuana recreationally to create a sense of well-being or to alter the senses. It is either taken by mouth or smoked. Although it has some health benefits it shouldn’t be taken as smoking marijuana may also increase the risk of acute coronary syndrome, heart attack, and/or swelling of walls of the arteries. However, in many cases, people who experienced these events after smoking marijuana had other risk factors for heart-related events such as smoking cigarettes or being overweight. Thanks!
