Is marijuana a good remedy for more than cancer side effects?

Is marijuana a good remedy for more than cancer side effects?

No: Marijuana has limited utility in certain kinds of cancer pain and nausea, and even there, other effective alternatives exist. As a medical agent, marijuana gets much more press than it deserves.

How often do people become ill from unknowingly consuming tainted marijuana? What could side effects be?

Hard to know: Marijuana can be adulterated with all kind of things -- from pesticides to other hallucinogens. Symptoms depend on the particular "extra" substance, on top of marijuana's ability to induce psychosis all by itself in some. How to measure the frequency of this adulteration?

I am feeling side effects from marijuana 24 hours after I smoked. When will this go away? I am 5'8 130 pounds and the weed was strong.

Up to few more days: Thc, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, has a half-life of 2-10 days depending on the amount smoked. If the half-life is 3 days that means it will take 3 days for half of it to leave your system & 6 days for 3/4 of it to be eliminated. Despite this most people only feel effects for several hours after smoking. The effects will lessen day by day. Sounds like this is not a good herb for you. ...Read more

Bipolar meds have so many side effects. Wouldn't it be better 2 smoke marijuana as bi polar people tell me they feel better than the meds? Is it harmful

DON'T THINK SO: I have no idea what the long term effects are - possibly including psychosis. The goal should be to have as stable a life as possible and I doubt that pot will do that.
Properly balanced meds and real support can help a whole lot.
Very hard to live a productive life by being happy and out of it - and depressive and manic phases are most likely to recur anyway.
Not the best solution. ...Read more

BE CAREFUL!: I wouldn't give an elderly person a controlled substance (or street drug) without a prescription. Marijuana can be very dangerous if not used in the appropriate way, particularly if it is laced on the street (as they often can be) with any number of substances.

No contraindication: But if you are being treated for vaginal trichomoniasis, this is a sexually transmitted disease, and marijuana may increase the chance of acting impulsively in terms of having unprotected sex and either getting re-infected or infecting someone else. What you need to completely avoid is alcohol, which will cause an antabuse-like effect when taken with metronidazole. ...Read more
