Cannabis may help with HIV/AIDS in two primary ways: assisting with the symptoms associated with HIV wasting syndrome, and mitigating the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy that can be caused by some HIV treatments.
How cannabis may help with HIV/AIDS:
Our high-THC and low-CBD product (Tangerine) is the most commonly used product in HIV/AIDS patients.
THC is effective in improving appetite, increasing weight gain, and decreasing HIV-associated sensory neuropathic pain in HIV-positive patients.
The small amount of CBD that is in this product has anti-nausea, anti-emetic (vomiting), and anti-anxiety properties, which are helpful in progressive disease.
