HIV/AIDS treatment has come a long way over the last decade or so. While modern therapy allows those with HIV/AIDS to live a long and mostly healthy life, the side effects of the treatment can be effortful to deal with. This is where medicinal cannabis comes in. Many studies show that medical cannabis can improve many HIV/AIDS-related symptoms, including anorexia, weight loss, severe nausea and more. Most HIV patients report back of their improved or increased appetite with medical cannabis treatment. Patients also experience reduced muscle pain and improvements with both nausea and anxiety.
HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, is a disease that compromises a person’s immune system by killing protective white blood cells. As this defensive system shuts down, other harmful infections, called “opportunistic infections,” blossom.
Cannabis research might be limited, but there is no shortage of studies supporting the plant’s capability in eradicating nausea, vomiting, and appetite loss with a single drag! These effects can also help patients restore mass as well as maintain vital nutrients. Cannabis, whether inhaled or consumed as an extract, also targets neuropathic pain brought about by HIV/AIDS.
