What can a Florida Medical Marijuana clinic do for Anorexia?
There is little research on whether or not cannabis can be an effective treatment for anorexia nervosa. However, marijuana is commonly used for those suffering from cancer or HIV/AIDS, due to its ability to assist with uncontrolled weight loss, anxiety, and nausea, which are also common symptoms of anorexia. Commonly known as the “munchies”, chemical compounds in cannabis react with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates the brain and often leads to appetite-enhancing properties. For these reasons, medical cannabis can be a potential treatment option for those suffering from anorexia. Anyone dealing with the mental disorder should first see a certified physician to be diagnosed and address the underlying psychological factors attributed to anorexia.
Under Amendment 2, anorexia may be a qualifying condition for a medical marijuana card in Florida.
