When people talk about cannabis edibles, they are usually talking about the cannabis-infused drinks and other snacks that can be taken with the medicine. These products are not intended for consumption as an actual food but rather a stimulant-rich drink that is meant to be taken with the medicine. However, there are certain foods that have been found to have a certain amount of cannabis in them which has been shown to help with certain medical ailments. The truth is that this isn’t a new concept but has been around for quite some time. There have been various studies done on the impact of edibles and their effects on both the body and mind of the consumer.
Imagine the Benefits of Cannabis Edibles.
One of the most common edibles that are consumed by patients who are diagnosed with chronic diseases like cancer and glaucoma are cannabis-infused edibles. Commonly used in these studies are the popular strains such asabetics, HIV patients, arthritis sufferers, chemotherapy patients, those suffering from epilepsy and those who are battling other forms of illnesses that have a cannabis component to them. The studies conducted on these specific groups show that consuming these edibles can greatly reduce the nausea and vomiting that are a side effect of the drugs they are taking. They also show a very positive impact on patients who are combating the effects of chemotherapy and other highly toxic chemicals that cause severe side effects on the body.
Another one of the many cannabis edibles that have proven to be very useful is cannabis-infused butter and caramels. There are a lot of illnesses out there that require a nice glass of milk or honey to sooth the stomach and provide them with some relief from the pain and discomfort caused by the disease. While it may seem counterintuitive when you consider that the cannabis plant is what is causing the relief, it does work in a very strange way. A study done at the University of Colorado showed that chemotherapy patients who were given cannabis-infused butter had a significant reduction in nausea compared to those who received chemotherapy using another type of medicine. This was a remarkable finding, but the University of Colorado did not release the complete data, only reporting that the patients who were given the cannabis-infused butter had a significantly lower rate of nausea when compared to the placebo group who received no medicine.
