Slowly the world is starting to take notice of the numerous medical benefits of marijuana. A certain individual decided he wanted to share his extraordinary story with the world about the potential use of medical marijuana for hypothyroidism treatment. Now there are no current studies that can back up claims that marijuana therapy can benefit those suffering from thyroid problems. Yet, Eric is a living testament to the fact that there is much we still do not know about this herb and that we should keep an open mind. The following is his story, written in his own words.
My Initial Battle with Hyper and Hypothyroidism
Cannabis can be used to also treat a wide variety of ailments and diseases such as
Hyperthyroidism. I had Hyperthyroidism from elementary school on into high school and college. I tried everything, the doctors used Radioactive Iodine in order to kill off my thyroid because it was producing too much hormone and essentially killing me.
This treatment definitely cured my hyperthyroidism, by destroying my thyroid cells and forcing my body in a perpetual state of hypothyroidism. They prescribed me Synthroid after two hefty doses of Radioactive Iodine and also informed me that this would be my life until I died. They explained to me how Synthroid was created and how it helped my body, of course, I believed every word they said.
That was until I started having very negative side effects from the Synthroid. Mood swings, Depression, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts were getting in the way of my recovery from the medicine and from the damage my thyroid had done. After a couple years of taking this medicine, I abandoned it and turned to more “Herbal” type medicines.
Medical Marijuana for Hypothyroidism treatment
I had never used Cannabis prior to me getting sick, I had never even been offered Marijuana in my school days but here I was 18 years old fresh out of high school, sick with no cure to my problem in sight. My wife was the first one to ask if I wanted to try Cannabis. I reluctantly obliged and we ended up moving out to the west, specifically Colorado due to their new Medical Cannabis laws geared towards patients in my shoes. Here I could safely start my medical marijuana for hypothyroidism treatment.
I used Cannabis soda, Cannabis breath mints, Cannabis candy, smokable cannabis, soothing bath bombs made from cannabis, and even lotions, tinctures, and creams. After using Cannabis for five years straight in any form that I could find it in, my symptoms started to get less and less noticeable. Until one day on a routine check up of my thyroid let me know that Cannabis had cured my Thyroid problems. For me, using medical marijuana for hypothyroidism was the ultimate answer.
The doctor drew my blood, and when the results came back that all my levels were normal, he asked me what I was doing. I told him, while smiling ear to ear, Cannabis sir. His mouth hit the floor. Him nor any other doctor could believe it until they saw the lab results. I am a living testament to using medical marijuana for hypothyroidism, but also to how cannabis can heal and protect your body in many many ways. I now continue to use cannabis on a day to day basis for many other ailments other than my thyroid issues ( which are completely gone now), I smoke cannabis, I eat cannabis, and I vaporize cannabis every single day. Cannabis saved my life.
An Open Mind is a Wise Mind
Medical marijuana for hypothyroidism is just one of its many uses (check out the breakthrough in cannabis curing cancer research), through the textile industry and into the healthcare field. Different methods exist in order to gain Cannabis’s health benefits. The tried and true method for centuries for getting the compounds into your body like CBD, THC, CBN etc. Is to ingest cannabis through eating it in food. This is not only the safest way to use cannabis but it is the most effective way to gain the health benefits.
Cannabis has been used for centuries across the globe. Unlike alcohol and other illicit and dangerous drugs cannabis has killed zero people. Partly because cannabis is self-dosing. Meaning that your body will tell you when you’ve had enough.
The problem a lot of cannabis users find themselves apart of is overeating or binge eating. The binge/Overeating is caused by cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1R). When cannabis hits the brain the cannabis receptors fire off and you get that sometimes uncomfortable urge to eat. When I use cannabis I make sure to always have healthy munchies on hand such as but not limited to: Grapes, Broccoli, Cauliflower, tomatoes, pineapple etc.
I admit that smoking is great and cessation has been around for centuries but in this case, some of the compounds that do exist in cannabis are burned completely up when it’s heated to the point of combustion which also releases other nuisance chemicals associated with different types of cancer I.E tar build up in the lungs and bronchial tubes.
If smoking is no problem for you then fine, however if you are like the other millions of people on this planet who suffer from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) or other breathing problems you may want to consider eating cannabis. Cannabis is the healing herb for all the Earth’s nations, let’s treat it as such.
