Studies conducted around the world have shown that there are multiple health benefits of medical marijuana for those suffering from AIDS/HIV. Orange County and Victorville medical marijuana providers can now sell medical cannabis to AIDS patients who need it. Medical marijuana has been found to provide relief in a number of conditions that AIDS patients suffer from, including nerve pain, wasting syndrome and treatment of nausea.
Neuropathic pain is one of the most debilitating symptoms of AIDS/HIV, reducing the quality of life in patients. Cannabinoid compounds, found medical marijuana, have the ability to modulate pain perception and relieve the pain of peripheral neuropathy. Studies have found that AIDS patients who suffer debilitating nerve pain are greatly benefited by smoking marijuana and that the relief was as much or more than that typically provided by prescription drugs. For those with AIDS/HIV, our doctors in San Bernardino County and Victorville offer recommendations to patients who want to achieve pain relief with fewer side effects.
In patients with AIDS, the side-effects of protease inhibitor therapy, a daily cocktail of 25 to 30 powerful anti-retroviral drugs can cause severe nausea. This can make it difficult for patients to adhere to their essential drug regimen. They also suffer from appetite loss due to fatigue or drug side effects. Poor appetite leads to anorexia and AIDS wasting syndrome, a typical symptom for those suffering from this disease. People with HIV use marijuana because it is known to stimulating the appetite and reduce nausea. For patients with AIDS/HIV, our doctors in San Bernardino County and Victorville offer recommendations to patients need relief from severe pain, nausea, and appetite loss.
A San Francisco study found that the patients gained weight and their condition improved when given medical marijuana. A Columbia University clinical trial showed that smoked marijuana has a clear medical benefit in HIV-positive patients. When given cannabis four times daily, patients experienced substantial increases in food intake with few side-effects. For those who are suffering from AIDS/HIV San Bernardino and Victorville medical marijuana can help boost appetite and prevent wasting syndrome.
Studies have found that nearly one-quarter of AIDS patients around the world use cannabis. Many use it for relief of anxiety and/or depression and to improve their mood, or to improve appetite, and provide pain relief. Other studies of medical marijuana in AIDS/HIV patients have shown significant improvement in physical disability and quality of life. Although cannabinoid derivatives, like Marinol, are available for treatment of nausea, AIDS patients report that smoked marijuana is far more effective.
Patients with AIDS are also prone to cancers like malignant lymphoma and Kaposi's sarcoma. Medical cannabis has been successfully used as an adjunctive treatment in the treatment of these cancers. Especially for patients who do not respond to conventional therapies and for whom no other medications have worked, medical marijuana can provide critical relief from acute or chronic nausea and vomiting.
