HIV or human immunodeficiency virus, spreads through body fluids and specifically attacks the immune systems CD4 cells (also known as “T Cells”) gradually destroying them, making the body less effective at combating disease and infections.
AIDS patients that have tried cannabis have stated that inhaling just a small amount of the flower relieves a number of symptoms. Mainly insomnia and lack of appetite. Because HIV attacks the immune system, it wreaks havoc throughout the body. Besides providing a foothold for opportunistic infection and cancer, the virus also triggers a potentially lethal wasting syndrome, painful nerve damage, and dementia. In addition to the physical discomforts inflicted by HIV, many people with AIDS also struggle with depression and anxiety. Cannabis, some patients say, eases all of these problems and more.
