Endometriosis and medical marijuana

Endometriosis can be really debilitating.  The presence of otherwise normal uterine tissue growing in places it shouldn’t can cause abdominal pain, nausea, and general feelings of blah-ness.

It turns out that the nerves that bring pain back from these islands of endometrial cells have  CB1 and CB2 receptors all over them, and that the pain signals can get shut down by medical marijuana ,  which hits these receptors.

So THC and CBD, medical marijuana, may be useful to decrease the symptoms of endometriosis.  Mary Larussa, FNP, is a womens’ health expert as well as a medical marijuana guru.  Why not get her involved to see if this safe medicine can help you ?
