New Diarrhea Treatment, Use Medical Marijuana; In A Related Story More Musicians Getting Diarrhea
Ok, so I made up the second part of that headline, but I found a story that talks about actual research. (yeah, right, I know a friend that does constant research.) Does Marijuana work on curing diarrhea?
According to weedblog.com in the Indian Medical Gazette which provides actual evidence on how cannabis is used to treat diarrhea.
Dr. Turner, who worked at the Holloway Dispensary, came across a number of cases in which diarrhea was not only the main but also the underlying problem of many illnesses. He came up with a formula whose main component was cannabis. And it worked.
Diarrhea is most common during the summer, followed by a fair amount of depression, cramps and nausea. With the usage of cannabis, these symptoms have not only subsided but the overall condition of the patient improved greatly.
How did it work? Basically, diarrhea makes you lose your appetite, weed speeds up your digestive tract and makes you hungry, so you cure yourself.
What’s the dosage? weedblog.com says two hits are enough in a pipe or vaporizer. They also say you should not leave it in the vaporizer because then next time your kids get a cold, they might want to eat a bunch of Twinkies after a good night sleep.
