Medical Marijuana and Prostatitis

Medical Marijuana and Prostatitis
Prostratitis can be an extremely painful condition. Along with causing pain during urination, a sufferer may have extreme pain all through the groin area and may experience pain during sexual intercourse. The level of pain experienced by someone suffering from Prostratitis can be debilitating and impact the ability to work and enjoy life. Although conventional narcotic pain medications can relieve pain, they come with a host of potentially negative side effects. Aside from the risk of addiction, dependence of overdose, narcotic pain medications can also reduce blood pressure and damage internal orgrans. Medical marijuana is a pain relief option that does not come with the long list of potentially dangerous side effects that narcotic pain medications come with.
In addition, medical marijuana can also be used as an anti-inflammatory medication. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are commonly prescribed to reduce inflammation; however, like the narcotic pain medications they also carry the risk of serious side-effects including nausea, vomiting and long-term damage to various internal organs.
Marijuana and Prostatitis: Clinical Evidence
The medicinal value of marijuana has been known by medical practitioners around the world for centuries. In particular, medical marijuana has been used as an analgesic to combat moderate to severe pain by numerous cultures for as far back as we have written records. More recently, several clinical studies have confirmed medical marijuana’s ability to combat pain. Along with confirming that medical marijuana does, indeed, reduce pain levels in patients suffering from pain, it does so without the potentially negative side effects of narcotic based pain medication. A recent study concluded that adding medical marijuana to the daily narcotic pain medications used by sufferers of chronic pain reduced pain levels without increasing the amount of narcotics in the patients’ blood or further slowing the respiratory system.
Along with the more widely know substance, THC, which is responsible for combating pain, medical marijuana contains Cannabidiol, or CBD, an important component of marijuana which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Along with CBD, medical cannabis has been shown to reduce tissue inflammation as a result of the presence of the compound β-caryophyllene. The two together show great promise in clinical studies as excellent anti-inflammatory drugs that do not carry the risk of causing internal damage as do most of the NSAIDs currently used.
