Best Method of Ingestion for This Condition
Using marijuana as relief for anorexia depends on psychological, as well as physical, factors. Many patients with anorexia, except those with anorexia-cachexia, struggle more with not wanting food versus not being able to physically get it down. Marijuana can increase appetite; however, if someone is still struggling with their mental issues related to anorexia, it cannot help people gain weight magically.
Patients suffering from anorexia due to cancer, or even HIV/AIDS, will significantly benefit from using marijuana as an appetite stimulant. The best method of ingestion for patients dealing with anorexia is usually smoking or vaporizing. Not only does this method of consumption provide the quickest appetite stimulation, but it is also easier to take than edibles. Before they start feeling relief or appetite stimulation, medical marijuana patients may find it hard for some patients to take edibles.
Vaporizing is known to be healthier than smoking, which is why many professionals will suggest vaporizing with a condition like this wherein some patients may already be experiencing a severe decrease in their health.
Disclaimer: Anorexia is a condition characterized by extreme weight loss and malnutrition, or cachexia. Cachexia is a Nevada approved medical marijuana condition when associated with chronic disease. See a list of all state-approved medical marijuana conditions. (7/15/16)
