Medical Marijuana For Nausea
Nausea can be experienced for a number of reasons and no matter our age, we’ve probably all experienced at some point or another. Nausea is a common symptom, not an actual disease or illness, and can often be accompanied by a list of other symptoms.
What Triggers Nausea?
If you have a virus, other medical condition, or even just smell an unpleasant strong odor (like a skunk or rotting food), you may feel queasy or like you want to vomit. It can affect us all differently and sometimes the feeling may last a few minutes, and sometimes days. Other common reasons for experiencing nausea can include the following:
- The flu
- Food poisoning
- Intense pain
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Forms of cancer and cancer treatments
Symptoms associated with nausea other than vomiting can include diarrhea, fever, stomach pain, and lightheadedness.
How Cannabis Oil Can Treat Feelings Of Nausea
Whether you’re experiencing stomach pain, or just have an upset stomach, medical marijuana can reduce your feelings of nausea by reacting with the cannabinoids in our body. Cannabinoids receptors are found all throughout our bodies and affect a wide range of how we feel, think, and act like our cravings, or the amount of pain we feel, and even our memory.
They aren’t just found in the brain though. Our lungs, liver, kidneys, and overall immune system are linked to these receptors. When medical marijuana comes into play, the cannabinoid compound found in the cannabis oil positively impacts the cannabinoid receptors in our bodies and helps to relax us. So not only will it help ease your feelings of wanting to vomit, but it can take away your stomach pain or lightheadedness associated with the nausea.
Canada Wide Consultations
I’m Nauseous From Chemotherapy Treatments. Can I Use Medical Marijuana?
Chemo-induced nausea is an unfortunate symptom for people already suffering from a cancer diagnosis. In fact, one in two Canadians will be diagnosed with some form of cancer throughout their lifetime. Although more research needs to go into how medical marijuana can treat cancer patients, there has already been numerous studies done on limiting nausea after chemotherapy treatments. It can also drastically improve weight loss and loss of appetite (other common side effects that occur from cancer treatments).
