What is Nausea?

People oftentimes find themselves sick to their stomach for a host of different reasons. It can be caused by eating tainted food; it could be the symptom of another illness, or it could be caused by certain medications or medical processes like chemotherapy. The symptoms of nausea include stomach sickness and a lack of appetite.

How can marijuana help?

Science has already proven that the endocannabinoid system controls our appetite and can be easily manipulated by cannabinoids to reduce or increase hunger. After activating CB1 receptors in the central nervous system with THC, the body releases hunger-inducing hormones that help those with no appetite eat again. Cancer patients laud cannabis for its antiemetic properties, and studies support these views by proving it to be a more effective source of nausea relief than a number of popularly prescribed pharmaceutical drugs. AIDS patients who have lost a significant amount of muscle mass also find marijuana to be helpful for stimulating appetite and putting on weight.
