Medical Benefits  Nausea


Nausea


Cannabis and Nausea

Nausea is not a medical condition in and of itself, but rather a common symptom of everything from cancer to epilepsy to multiple sclerosis. Sometimes the disease itself causes extreme nausea, and sometimes vomiting is a reaction to the medicines or chemo therapy used to treat a chronic condition.

Cancer patients going through chemo are among the largest group of people routinely given cannabis to treat nausea. It has an added effect of increasing the appetite, to help keep them eating.

However, cannabis has been used to soothe another kind of nausea as well: the nausea associated with morning sickness.

While there are more conventional drugs that are often given to pregnant women with extreme cases of morning sickness, the fact that marijuana can be taken via nebulizer (vaporizer) means that it can bypass the GI tract and stay down.

Is marijuana safe for pregnant women and their babies, however? A study in Jamaica showed that there was no discernable difference between newborns or one-month old babies whose mothers had used marijuana during pregnancy and those whose mothers did not.

Even so, most of the time when cannabis is prescribed as an anti-emetic, it is done so to treat symptoms of chronic diseases.

Marijuana has medical benefits, no doubt about that. Plus, it's definitely pleasant to be high! An added bonus!

I agree that cannabis is a miracle cure for nausea. I use cannabis frequently for nausea and I have gotten so used to it that I can't eat without it. Not only does it make you feel hungry, but it also makes food taste better. I think that cannabis has

This is a significant case study. However, I suspect that anti-MJ people would never concede that MJ is an acceptable medication for pregnancy nasusea. I think the THC pills might be even better since they are more readily accessible. The vaporizers co
