Weed and Nausea
Weed and nausea come into mind as we all have been in front of the toilet on our knees a few times. Marijuana can help settle your stomach very quickly.
Some chemotherapy regimens are notorious for causing terrible bouts of nausea and vomiting, and marijuana has been found to be an excellent anti nausea medication. Smoking marijuana does give the desired effect in a matter of minutes and could, therefore, relieve the symptom quickly. There are literally hundreds of articles that appear in the peer reviewed medical and scientific literature that discuss marijuana’s effects in control of nausea and vomiting. Antiretroviral (ARV) drugs are used to treat HIV positive patients. When these chemicals enter the bloodstream upon ingestion, then the vomiting centre of the brain detects certain changes in the bloodstream in the form of those chemical substances.
They immediately send signals to the stomach to reject the contents, which is what the nauseating feeling is basically. Nausea and vomiting may prove to be more harmful to the body in prolonged cases. It may cause severe dehydration as well as loss of appetite thus leading to malnutrition. Excessive vomiting may also prevent the drugs from being in the system long enough to be absorbed. An antiemetic is a substance that gives some relief from nausea or vomiting. Marijuana contains THC which binds with the endocannabinoid receptors in our brain and causes relief or relaxation of the nauseating tendencies. There are other antiemetics which can be used for patients with severe cases of nausea and vomiting but sometimes, such cases are so severe that traditional antiemetics fail to provide any relief. Marijuana, when smoked, has proven to be highly effective in the harshest cases.
