Some people have negative reviews about cannabis whereas some have experienced its positive effects. Here is what you should know about what cannabis does to your body.

The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine carried out a comprehensive review on cannabis and its effects. There are significant limits to their results however, it does shed light on cannabis effects.

Cannabis Effects On The Body

The study carried out by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine sought to highlight facts from fiction. Based on their results, it was found that cannabis has therapeutic qualities and can help with:

  • Chronic pains
  • Muscle spasms
  • Spasms from sclerosis
  • Can combat insomnia by inducing sleep
  • Can help reduce the pain and nausea associated with chemotherapy.

The study also highlighted some short term physical effects smoking cannabis dried flower can have:

  • Red eyes
  • Dry mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Feelings of joy and euphoria
  • Increase in heart rate
  • Change in bodily movements
  • Pleasure

Cannabis Effects On The Heart

The study carried out by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine also investigated on cannabis effects on the heart. They found it inconclusive to link any kind of cardiovascular disease to smoking cannabis dried flower. The results were neither positive nor negative. The limited results which were found that linked cannabis were

  • Decreased risk of diabetes
  • Increased risk of stroke through smoke

However, even these results are not comprehensive enough. These results should, in short, not be relied upon. However, always consult your doctor if you have any kind of heart disease.

Cannabis Effects On The Lungs

The review carried out by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine found shocking results on cannabis effects on the lungs. No such link was found that proved that smoking cannabis dried flower caused lung cancer. They didn’t find any correlation between neck and head cancer as well!

However a negative impact that they did find was that smoking too much cannabis can cause hacking coughs and increased mucus production. These symptoms tend to reduce and go away completely if you abstain from smoking. Ingesting cannabis dried flower in edibles or cannabis oil do not tend to have these effects. For people who moderately smoke cannabis, they found that cannabis can improve lung functioning. There was inconclusive evidence which suggested that smoking it increases asthma.
