Inflammation is an absolutely important and growing area of biomedical research and health care because inflammation mediates and is the primary driver of many medical disorders and autoimmune diseases. Some diseases influenced by this would be ankylosing spondylitis, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, Behcet’s disease, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, autistic enterocolitis and typical allergies.
Medical marijuana contains a very powerful anti-inflammatory compound as well as many natural analgesics. Due to this, medical marijuana can provide a very effective one-two punch for patients who are suffering from inflammatory arthritis. Medical marijuana can relieve joint pain and at the same time, reduce the inflammation that is percolated by the pain from arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory arthritis may be treated with the help of cannabinoids that naturally occur in cannabis.
