Drinking Weed Can Help Soothe These Ailments

Sipping on marijuana tea is a healthy way to yield extreme health benefits. Drinking weed can also help soothe these ailments.

Drinking weed by way of tea or tinctures is a highly popular method of cannabis consumption. Loaded with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants, here are just a few of the ailments you can treat by drinking your weed.

Reduce Chronic Pain

Due to its long-lasting effect, marijuana tea is a great option for those who suffer from chronic pain. Patients diagnosed with cancer, AIDS, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis have found that sipping on marijuana tea is a great alternative to smoking of vaping. In addition,  Drinking weed tea can offer relief between four to eight hours making it key for pain management.

Improve Lung Health

Little do many people know, but cannabis actually acts as a bronchodilator (a fancy word for something that increases airflow and reduces resistance in the respiratory tract). So in this case, marijuana actually makes it easier to breathe!

Lighten Anxiety and Depression

Challenge your inner Sheldon Cooper by offering this extra-comforting tea to yourself to soothe frayed nerves and a case of the “sads” as is the social custom of tea.

Cannabis contains something called neuroprotective qualities which protect cells against damage, inflammation, deterioration and functional inability. Interestingly, brain inflammation is what brings on anxiety and depression. By reducing inflammation, the brain is then able to heal itself and bye-bye anxiety and depression.

Ease Nausea and Increase Appetite

Nausea is a side-effect of many serious illnesses and their treatment, most especially chemotherapy for cancer. THC, the active substance in marijuana, reduces nausea in chemotherapy patients. While smoking cannabis can exacerbate nausea to some, drinking weed tea is easier on the tummy.  Often called “the munchies” for the recreational user, patients with serious illnesses benefit greatly from the appetite stimulation of marijuana.

Alleviate Bowel Problems

For those with IBS and Crohn’s Disease, cannabis has been shown to decrease cramping, constipation, and diarrhea.

Drinking  your weed by sipping marijuana tea may be so effective for these disorders because it goes directly to the source of the problem: your gut.
