NAUSEA & MEDICAL MARIJUANA
“One of the best temporary cures for assholes is seasickness. Somehow, they vomit out their excessive pride, ego and nauseating narcissism – and become humbly acceptable creatures. Unfortunately when Nausea lifts, the asshole returns.” Longjack
Nausea is an ill feeling – that you might vomit at any moment. Nauseous feelings are meant to encourage fasting – to protect the your body from a perceived threat- like food poisoning. The problem with nausea is that, sometimes there is a dysfunction in “gut” feelings. It is often the case, that fasting is a good idea – however if feelings of nausea persist, as is the case in Cancer and other serious conditions, long term nausea and loss of appetite is a disaster.
- “The evidence is overwhelming that Marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as MS, cancer and HIV – or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to treat them.. with incredible safety. Indeed, Marijuana is not as toxic as most of the drugs that physicians prescribed daily.” J. Elders, MD

Marijuana and Nausea
Cannabis has been used for thousands of years to treat nausea and its associated conditions. The medicine men and gurus of Kings and Queens, Chinese Emperors, Pharaohs, British Royalty, all knew very well – that Marijuana works to regulate nausea, uncontrolled vomiting, kill infections and improve appetite. In fact, it was often the case that their very livelihood and lives depended on their results.
- “Cannabinoid, the active components of Cannabis Sativa helps cancer patients by preventing nausea, vomiting and pain and by stimulating appetite.” MMJ Doctor
Researchers have discovered how the active ingredients of Medical Cannabis, (Cannabinoids) work their wonders. Cannabinoids include THC and CBD, that mimic naturally produced biotransmitter molecules that control mood, feeling and appetite centers in the nervous system and brain. THC and CBD normalize overactive responses in runaway nausea, reducing sickly sensations allowing appetite to return.
Pharmaceutical Drug Side Effects can Debilitate and even Kill
Common pharmaceuticals prescribed to treat nausea include promethazine, metoclopramide and ondansetron. While these drugs can be effective for some, but side effects are a very serious concern. Cannabis based medicines are well documented by researchers to have few, if no harmful side effects.
- Cannabinoids are usually well tolerated, and do not produce the generalized toxic effects of conventional chemotherapies.” Manuel Guzman, PhD
Ondansetron side effects too often include confusion, dizziness, elevated heartbeat, fever headache, shortness of breath, weakness and is linked to thousands of deaths. Promethazine can cause uncontrollable twitching in arms legs, eyes, everywhere. High doses of metoclopramide care known to cause nerve damage and heart failure.
