Scientific Research into Medicinal Cannabis – HIV AIDS

HIV AIDS : Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, potentially life-threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By damaging your immune system, HIV interferes with your body’s ability to fight the organisms that cause disease.

HIV is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It can also be spread by contact with infected blood or from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth or breast-feeding. Without medication, it may take years before HIV weakens your immune system to the point that you have AIDS.

There’s no cure for HIV/AIDS, but there are medications that can dramatically slow the progression of the disease. These drugs have reduced AIDS deaths in many developed nations.

We have listed the latest scientific research into medicinal cannabis and it’s potential uses treating HIV AIDS

Research shows cannabis helps patients manage symptoms associated with HIV and AIDS treatments and may even help slow the progression of the virus.

 

EFFECTS OF CANNABIS ON HIV

While the side effects of HIV and AIDS treatments can impinge on one’s life quality, studies have shown that medical marijuana can help make the adverse effects more manageable. Studies have found that daily and chronic neuropathic pain related to HIV can be significantly lowered by regular cannabis consumption. Medical marijuana also boosts appetite and daily functioning, helping to combat weight loss and muscle breakdown.

Research also suggests that consuming medical marijuana is safe for patients with HIV/AIDS. One study found no significant association with cannabis use and the CD4 T-cell count of patients co-infected with HIV and HCV, suggesting cannabis has no adverse effects on the immune system.

While research surrounding marijuana’s potential treatment effects on the HIV virus itself, a recent study discovered that marijuana-like compounds blocked the spread of HIV virus during the late stages of the infection.
