For many years before legalization of cannabis in Canada and now especially since its use has become more socially acceptable and commonplace more and more people are choosing to experiment with seeking relief with cannabis for inflammation, aches and pains, nausea, discomfort, stress and anxieties among many other things. Many surveys have been conducted polling patients with disorders like fibromyalgia and psoriasis among others and the results often reflect a major reduction in symptoms such as inflammation, pain and discomfort coupled with a greater ability to fall asleep and properly rest throughout the night. This seems to suggest that thc and immune system disorders are a perfect match.
The list of glowing testimonials from users all over the world who use cannabis for inflammation or other symptoms is certainly a strong indicator that marijuana and autoimmune disease sufferers could be an important pairing in the field of medical science. However a large amount of controlled scientific study still needs to be performed for the connection between marijuana and autoimmune disease symptoms to be totally understood.
Some recent research seems to suggest that cannabis and the immune system interact with one another via the endocannabinoid system which plays an important role in the human body regulating immune system functions. Immune cells are known to have the appropriate receptors – CB1 and CB2 receptors – which the cannabinoids in cannabis naturally bond to and interact with. Creating a communicative connection between thc and the immune system the body allows cannabinoids to coax it from operating in overdrive and eases down operations to slow its aggressive attack on otherwise healthy cells and tissue.
It’s an exciting time for cannabis science and much more study is being done every day in regards to cannabis and the immune system. As more and more research is done and more is understood about this fascinating interaction between cannabis and the immune system many thousands of people who struggle daily with inflammation, sore joints, unruly digestive systems and a whole host of other immune system related symptoms have already turned to cannabis to treat their conditions. A great many have also begun to spread the word far and wide that this miraculous plant has worked wonders in helping them reclaim their health and allowing them to regain a little control over their lives.
As an alternative to immunosuppressive medications research on thc and immune system disorders provides a promising option for many people struggling with one or more of these debilitating conditions without requiring the repression or complete cessation of the body’s natural immune system functions. This allows the patient to regain a sense of lost security functioning out in the world as they are not forced to be at constant risk of catching other illnesses on top of the already overwhelming struggle they are dealing with.
