How Cannabis Can Benefit Your Immune System

The Latest Evidence Showing The Benefits Of Medical Marijuana In Patients With Weakened Immunity And Certain Inflammatory Diseases

By Naomi C. Abrams 

With COVID-19 still devastating the globe, medical marijuana patients are seeking answers about how to boost their immunity and stay healthy.

While the topic of medical marijuana’s effects on the immune system is quite complex, promising new evidence is demonstrating that many people can benefit from utilizing nature’s finest wonder drug regularly.

Medical cannabis is proving to be particularly useful for those with certain autoimmune disorders.

 

What Types Of Autoimmune Disorders Benefit From Cannabis? 

In many autoimmune disorders, an overactive (or weakened) immune system is the root cause. If you suffer from chronic inflammation due to health conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, Lupus, or allergies, you are not alone.

Millions of people experience tremendous suffering as the result of an overactive immune system, but there is good news. The anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis can often help promote ease in health conditions where the immune system plays a central role.

Cannabis can help with pain and discomfort, and it starts with finding the medical marijuana route that works best for you. It is important to have a conversation with your doctor about getting the relief you need. There are different intake methods and there is truly something for everyone.


Does Medical Marijuana Help People With Weakened Immune Systems? 

On the flip side of overactive immune systems is weakened immune systems, and if you have a weak or declining immune system, you can also benefit from using medical cannabis.

While the verdict is unclear about the effects of cannabis in those with healthy immune systems, recent evidence suggests that cannabis may help promote wellbeing in those with weakened immune systems.

Cannabis may help boost your immune system by increasing the number of white blood cells in your body, preventing infectious diseases, and fighting foreign pathogens.  

This is groundbreaking news for those who suffer from HIV/AIDS, cancer, and primary immune deficiencies. Decreasing inflammation can help slow several disease processes.

For example, chronic inflammation is believed to be central in HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders. So the anti-inflammatory activity of cannabis could be beneficial in decreasing the progression of neurocognitive decline.


Can Cannabis Help Cancer Patients?

A normally functioning immune system tells diseased cells whether they should live or die.

It can trigger cell-suicide in diseased cells, a process known as apoptosis. With cancer, the diseased cells stop responding to the call to self-destruct. This, unfortunately, leads to the cells growing out of control and the disease spreading.

Research suggests that cannabis can potentially be beneficial to cancer patients, since it may help trigger cell-suicide in cancer cells. As of right now, this research is still in the early phases. We hope that this research will continue and expand to clinical trials, which could one day help provide patients with a better quality of life.

 

In conclusion, if you suffer from health issues or disease(s) stemming from the immune system, cannabis may be the perfect natural medication for you.
