Cannabis For Terminal Illnesses

Terminal illnesses are end-stage illnesses that cannot be cured or treated adequately. It is a broad term that can include many different diagnoses. Any illness or disease process that is not responsive to curative medical treatment, and which will reasonably lead to the death of the patient may be called a terminal illness.

Because terminal illnesses have no cure, medicinal drugs are used to ease the pain and discomfort that the patient goes through.

Cancer

uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.

HIV/AIDS

a virus affecting the immune system decreasing the body’s ability to fight infections.

Lung Diseases

abnormal functioning of the lungs leading to airway, tissue, or circulation problems.

Dementia

a group of conditions affecting at least two brain functions such as memory and judgement.

How does Cannabis help with Terminal Illnesses?

Cannabis presents an all-natural approach to deal with the side effects of the treatment of terminal illnesses. For instance, in the case of cancer, cannabis compounds can provide symptomatic relief from chemotherapy-induced side effects (nausea, pain, etc.).

In the case of HIV/AIDS, cannabis helps with reducing inflammation, pain, and nausea, headaches, weight loss, anxiety, and depression.

Similarly, the neuroprotective properties of cannabis compounds help slow the progress of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Depending on the severity of the condition, any illness may be a terminal illness. Some most commonly known illnesses include advanced cancer, HIV/AIDS, dementia, Parkinson’s, advanced heart diseases, etc.

Ways in which Cannabis helps Manage Terminal Illnesses

Reduced Inflammation

Inflammation can lead to pain, discomfort, blockage of airways and nerves, and stiffness in the muscles and joints.

The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD and other cannabinoids reduce internal and external inflammation in the body.

Some inflammatory problems that cannabis provides relief in are arthritis, asthma, heart problems, lung diseases,  Alzheimer’s, cancer, etc.

Improved Cognitive Functioning

Neurological illnesses such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and MS affect the basic cognitive functioning of the body.

Cannabinoids promote the effective performance of basic cognitive processes such as attention, memory, and motor coordination. This can help slow the progression of neurodegeneration in the body.

Regulated use of cannabis products thus help with impaired memory in dementia and Alzheimer’s and impaired motor coordination in Parkinson’s and similar diseases.

Reduced Stress & Fatigue

CBD acts as a relaxant and induces a sense of calm in the body. This helps in reducing stress, anxiety, and fatigue.

Cannabis products provide an all-natural way to deal with excessive stress and fatigue that often accompanies terminal illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, and anaemia.

Reduced Pain & Nausea

Persistent pain and feelings of nausea often accompany terminal illnesses such as cancer, MS, Huntington’s, arthritis, etc.

CBD is an anti-inflammatory cannabinoid that lowers inflammation in the body, thus reducing pain. It also works to reduce the feelings of nausea and dizziness.

In this way, cannabis products help in managing side effects of chemotherapy (in the case of cancer) and symptoms of other terminal illnesses such as arthritis, ulcers, anaphylaxis, etc.
