Medical Marijuana for HIV/AIDS Patients
Medical marijuana is helpful as a supplemental medication to HIV/AIDS antiretrovirals, helping offset some of the side effects caused by those medications. It is estimated that 14-37% of people living with HIV/AIDS are currently using medical marijuana to offset symptoms.
HIV/AIDS patients will often experience nausea, upset stomachs or loss of appetite, all of which can be countered by prescription cannabinoids. Improved anxiety, increased relaxation, depression aid and some pain relief have also been listed as benefits in users.
