List of Unknown but Researched Marijuana’s Medical Benefits 

 

 Marijuana was banned because it is classified as Schedule I drug, under 1970s Controlled Substance Act. Suddenly, in 1999 controversies aroused about its medical usage. Actually, the US government sponsored a research study on marijuana’s beneficial medical properties. Medicine marijuana was legalized in California and several other states.  

 

List of unknown medical benefits of Marijuana 

 

Stops spread of cancer 

 

Research report - 2007 - California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco 

 

Cannabidiol [CBD] helps the spread of cancer by restricting the gene called Id-1 to make replicas of cancerous cells. In lab, breast cancer cells with high Id-1 levels were treated with cannabidiol. The Id-1 expression levels decreased and turned less aggressive spreaders. Several other studies suggest that cannabis includes this compound, which can even destroy the cancer cells. 

 

Treats glaucoma 

 

National Eye Institute study in 1970 

 

Glaucoma is a condition, where eyeball pressure increases, which damages optic nerve and causes vision loss. 

 

According to the study, when marijuana is smoked IOP or intraocular pressure gets lowered in people suffering from glaucoma. Drug effects can slow the progress and eventually prevent blindness.   

 

Prevents Alzheimer’s 

 

In 2006 study - Scripps Research Institute   

 

Marijuana possesses THC, which is an active ingredient that blocks the brain enzyme that produces amyloid plaques. These plaques kill brain cells, which causes Alzheimer’s. 

 

Controls epileptic seizure 

 

A 2003 rat study - Virginia Commonwealth University 

 

Synthetic marijuana was given to epileptic rats. Seizures stopped in ten hours. THC found in marijuana controlled seizures. Brian cells liable for regulating relaxation and controlling excitement got fastened and thus seizures stopped. 

 

Severe seizure symptom - Dravet syndrome 

 

Fiji family treats their 5-year old daughter with marijuana strain low in THC and high in Cannabidiol. Her seizures got decreased from 300 in seven days to one in a week. Forty other kids in that state are using same marijuana strain for their seizures. It is working fine. Doctors, who prescribed this treatment, say that Cannabidiol interacts with brain cell and dampens the excessive brain activities that trigger seizures. 

 

Multiple sclerosis pain gets eased 

 

 

Study published in Canadian Medical Association 

 

Strains such as the Blueberrry variant includes THC, which attaches to the nerve and muscle receptors suppressing negative neurological effects as well as muscle spasms triggered by multiple sclerosis. Patients get relieved from the pain after smoking the weed. 

 

Soothes Parkinson’s disease tremors 

 

Israel research study 

 

Israel government has supported many research related to medical usage of marijuana. According to recent study, patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease enhanced their sleep because their pain and tremors got reduced remarkably. They even found that patient’s fine motor skills was impressively enhanced.  

 

Inflammatory bowel disease treatment 

 

In a 2010 research study - University of Nottingham 

 

The study suggested that marijuana chemicals including Cannabidiol and THC interact with body cells, which play the key role in immune response and gut functions. Human body makes compounds similar to THC, which increases permeability of intestines. Bacteria can enter these pores and cause bowel disorders. Cannabinoids found in marijuana blocks human body-cannabinoids. Thus, permeability is prevented and allows intestinal cells to fasten together more tightly.  

 

Relief from rheumatoid arthritis 

 

Research report 2011 - Rheumatology units of several hospitals 

 

Patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis in several hospitals were given cannabinoid based medicine. In a couple of weeks, the patients found reduce in inflammation and pain. Their sleep quality also improved as they got relief from pain and discomfort. 

 

Reverse carcinogenic effects due to tobacco 

 

January 2012 publication - Journal of American Medical Association 

 

The study reported that marijuana does not damage lung function but enhances its capacity. Tobacco smokers lose their lung function in due course but weed users revealed an enhancement in lung capacity. This is believed to because during pot inhalation deep breaths are taken and not due to therapeutic chemicals in marijuana.  

 

Marijuana decreases anxiety, fortifies auto-immune system, inspires creativeness, treats PTSD, prevents brain damage, eliminates nightmares, decreases nausea, stimulates appetite, etc. Marijuana plant offers countless benefits but still it is not legal in many countries. Hopefully, scientific community will persist to verify its cure benefits in near future.
