Nausea – feeling when you might vomit at any moment. Nauseous feelings are meant to encourage fasting – to protect your body from a perceived threat- like food poisoning or bacteria.  The main issue 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 catastrophe.


Nausea and medical marijuana – mmj doctor

“The evidence is overwhelming that Cannabis can help with certain types of pain, vomiting, nausea and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as cancer, MS, and HIV – or by the drugs sometimes used to treat them.. with incredible safety. Indeed, Marijuana is not as toxic as most of the drugs that doctors prescribed every day.”  Dr., J. Elders

“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

Medical Marijuana and Nausea

Medical Marijuana has been used for hundreds of years to treat nausea and its associated conditions and symptoms.  The gurus of Kings and Queens, the medicine men, and Chinese Emperors, Pharaohs, all knew very well  – that Cannabis works to regulate uncontrolled vomiting, nausea, kill infections and improve appetite in patients.  In fact, it was often the case that their very livelihood and lives depended on their results.

Physicians have found out how the active elements of Medical Marijuana (Cannabinoids) work their wonders.  MMJ include CBD and THC, that mimic naturally produced transmitter molecules that control feeling, mood 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.

“Cannabinoid, the active components of Marijuana Sativa helps cancer patients by preventing nausea, vomiting, and pain and by stimulating appetite.”  MMJ Doctor

Pharmaceutical Drug Side Effects can Cause Death

Common drugs prescribed to treat nausea include:

  • promethazine (can cause uncontrollable twitching in arms legs, eyes, everywhere)
  • metoclopramide (known to cause nerve damage and heart failure)
  •  ondansetron (elevated heartbeat, fever headache, confusion, dizziness, shortness of breath, weakness and is linked to hundreds of deaths cases)

These drugs can be helpful for some patients, but side effects are a very serious concern.  MMJ based medicines are well documented by doctors to have less harmful side effects.

THC and CBD are usually well tolerated, and do not produce the generalized toxic effects of conventional chemotherapies.”  Manuel Guzman, PhD
