How Cannabis Can Rapidly Treat Asthma and Lungs Conditions


Studies have shown that cannabinoids found in marijuana can protect your lungs, alleviate discomfort and constriction from asthma.

Facts are, 1 out of 12 people now suffer from asthma (chronic respiratory disease that is present during childhood). While many experience little to no symptoms with treatment, it still correlates with over 3,000 deaths a year. Many asthma sufferers fear smoking marijuana because they believe it will agitate the condition. 

There are new studies that are proving cannabis has almost no impact at all on lung health in the long-term. The study further concluded that cannabis is helpful than terrible for those who suffer from asthma.

Cannabis opens rather than restricts the airways.

The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics has published a study that proved cannabinoids are good for the lungs. By using guinea pigs, researchers measured the ability of cannabinoids to inhibit bronchoconstriction. Researchers in this study looked specifically at CBD, CBG,THC, CBD-A, and THC-V cannabinoids. The study showed that THC-V cannabinoids were able to prevent constriction, with THC being highly effective. Cannabis is now seen as a bronchodilator than a bronchoconstrictor.
