Being sick can be the worst feeling, but can be a time for you to relax and watch Netflix day. Some even smoke weed when their sick. A little cannabis can either help you or make matters worst. Here is how marijuana can help or worsen your sickness.
Can weed make you cold?
Cannabis may lower your body temperature. This phenomenon is called THC-induced Hypothermia. The THC in cannabis can hit a brain region that helps control temperature regulation, which is called Hypothalamus. Cannabis can make you a little cold due to its ability to change chemical reactions within the brain.
Can weed make you hot?
Cannabis can cause affects to your body temperature. Cannabis plants can make you feel cool in various ways. The TRPA-1 receptor is a reaction that is to be mediated by a particular cell receptor. The receptor has many functions in the body, but it is essential in mediating pain, inflammation and temperature regulation.
Active compounds in cannabis engage the same pathway, indicating that activation of these receptor sites may contribute to the cooling sensations of the herb.
Can weed help your sickness?
Smoking weed may not be the most helpful substance to take when sick, because of the smoke you inhale may lead to more inflammation, irritation, mucus and symptom of bronchitis.
Cannabis can ease of make things worse at the same time. The way you consume cannabis will affect your body. Cannabis doesn't fully help your cold or flu more quickly but the substance will cause relaxation to your body.
Smoking weed with chest cold
Smoking weed is not the best thing to do when you have a chest cold. The hot smoke you are trying to inhale is not going to help. Vaporizing or using vaporizers can be useful with warm water which will make your lung less shocking after each hit.
Smoking with the flu, sore throat or sinus infection
Smoking cannabis with the flu can cause chest congestion or symptoms of coughing. Using herb-products such as teas, vapors, low-dose edibles and tinctures can be useful more than smoking out of blunts or joints. Some users may find that the sedation, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea and pain-relieving effects of the herb can be helpful for coping with the flu.
Consuming weed and having sinus infections is not the best bet. High dose of THC may make you more aware of the pressure in your head or headaches. CBD tea or using a low-potency tincture or edible may make some inflammation and pressure in your face disappear.
Having a sore throat can be painful so smoking is not a good idea. CBD tea and honey can be great for your sore throat.
Marijuana can have one great affect with your sickness and sleep is it. Sleeping high will give you more rest and recovery for your body.
