Does Weed Help Asthmatics?

Does Weed Help Asthmatics?

Smoking with asthma may seem like an oxymoron of sorts. Asthma is a chronic respiratory illness which causes narrowed passageways and can lead to severe coughing, shortness of breath, and extreme cases, even death. While many patients have continued to use the tried-and-true methods of prescribed inhalers containing corticosteroid medications, many doctors are now questioning whether cannabinoids wouldn’t be a better option, as they do not have the potential side effects that corticosteroids do, such as depression, anxiety, and high blood pressure.

Benefits of THC

So, what are the benefits of THC for asthma sufferers? As it turns out, cannabis has the ability to open up airways, and make respiratory passages much less inflamed. This is the opposite of what the effects of tobacco are, as tobacco will restrict and narrow the passageways even further. However, is it a good idea to smoke weed in order to gain its positive effects for this illness, or should other forms of treatment be considered? There are different options available such as vaporizers which could help serve as a potential replacement for inhalers over the long-term. This would provide patients the ability to have a mobile form of treatment readily available, without having to worry about the serious side effects that can occur with corticosteroids.

Why Weed Makes You Laugh

When people generally think of individuals who smoke weed, a bunch of people laughing is something that may come to mind. So, why does weed make things funny? This is not yet explained in concrete terms, but here’s what we know so far:

Cannabinoids: This is the science-based part of what’s going on. Cannabinoids and THC, the chemicals found in weed, are what send messages to the brain and activate various receptors which alter and change the way we think, as well as our mood. In lay-man’s terms, we normally operate in an alert, active state. When smoking weed, we transition into a much more open and relaxed state. Our defenses are lowered and we are far more likely to find even the simplest things absolutely hilarious.

Marijuana-based Painkillers to Aid in the Opioid Crisis

Marijuana-based Painkillers to Aid in the Opioid Crisis

It’s tough to argue with the fact that the U.S. is facing widespread opiate abuse. Now a few drug manufacturers are looking toward creating marijuana-based painkillers as opioid alternatives. To get it approved by the FDA, though, requires doing clinical research on its effectiveness on opioid-dependent patients, which is going to be difficult given that federally marijuana legalization is a no-no.

About Opiate Abuse

Currently, about 100 million Americans are addicted to opioid painkillers, such as Vicodin, or street opiates like heroin.
