25 Cannabis Health Claims that are backed by Science

There is an astounding amount of scientific evidence that proves the fascinating efficiency of the trendiest substance in the market – cannabis! Below are 25 facts that comprehensively show case the wonders this substance can do:

1. Cannabis is effective in treating symptoms of nausea and vomiting, especially in cancer patients

Cannabis is known for its nausea alleviating properties. It is extremely beneficial in providing relief from nausea and vomiting. A group of researchers found that about 70 to 100 percent of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy got instant relief from nausea. However, the results are more promising on smoking the substance rather than using it in other forms. The study was conducted in 2001, and it appears online in the Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics.

2. Cannabis aids muscular discomfort in multiple sclerosis (MS)

Patients with Multiple Sclerosis often complain about pains that stop them from living their normal life. A group of scientists in 2012 discovered that the THC compound present in cannabis soothes the cramping and contraction of body muscles. Patients with MS often face this condition. They do not find other pain-relieving products any helpful in reducing the symptoms. However, cannabis has proved to be among the best relieving agent for them. The study appears in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

3. Treat all of your chronic and acute pains with the most tried and effective substance

The most common usage of cannabis for medical purposes is eliminating signs of chronic pain. Pharmaceutical products provide only half the relief for only 30 to 40 percent of people according to a study in Canada. Around 40 percent of people who use opioid painkillers also combine medical marijuana for better results.

Moreover, a study in 2011 suggests that using cannabis thrice daily for five days alleviated chronic pain in the patients under observation by 27 percent. The compound THC has pain reducing properties that target the specific area with pain and shows its action in a short amount of time.

4. Cannabis prevents cartilage from breaking down in Osteo Arthritis

Cannabis is not only beneficial for fighting off chronic pain or inflammation. Recent research in 2016 opens up another dimension on the benefits of the substance. It suggests that THC is helpful in preventing the breakdown of essential cartilage that occurs in osteoarthritis. This way, patients won’t have to worry about deteriorating factors of the disease.

5. It alleviates tremors and improves life quality in people affected with Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neurological disorder in which the motor functions do not work normally. There are frequent seizures, shakiness in the limbs that make an individual difficult to perform even the simplest of daily activities such as walking.

Unfortunately, this disease is incurable. However, a study in the early 2000s showed miraculous results as cannabis showed a positive side in alleviating some type of tremors. With the help of more research, scientists might be able to find the actual cause of all tremors manifesting in this disease. They can also employ beneficial properties of cannabis to help reduce the signs of the disease.
