AIDS

Horizontal Tabs

Introduction

The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. HIV/AIDS attacks cells of the immune system making the body more susceptible to infections and tumors. As a result, patients often suffer from nausea, loss of appetite, intractable pain and other secondary symptoms often associated with cancer (cachexia/wasting syndrome). These symptoms can be suppressed quite effectively by cannabis/cannabinoids. In addition, THC and other compounds found in cannabis can actually interfere with virus production and viral spread. Thus cannabinoids have excellent therapeutic potential for the treatment of AIDS and related symptoms but more research is required.
