Have you ever felt stomach pain, dizziness or an overwhelming feeling of anxiety? If so, in most cases these are symptoms of nausea.
Nausea is a protective defense mechanism in the human body, and short-term episodes can be therapeutic, though miserable. While not painful, it can be debilitating if prolonged. Several known causes of nausea are pregnancy, motion sickness, migraines, stomach virus, gastrointestinal disease, acid reflux, and emotional distress.
Over the years, several studies have shown that marijuana is an effective treatment for nausea. When THC binds to the CB1 receptors in specific parts of the brain, it acts to reduce symptoms. The potentially uplifting side effects of THC can also be therapeutic as well as helpful by creating a more positive mental state for those who suffer from chronic nauseous states.
