Marijuana Also Helps AIDS Patients
Marijuana-like drugs can do more for AIDS patients than simply help them with their nausea or loss of appetite, according to a new study.
Doctor Tipster found new research published in the medical journal PLoS One that suggests marijuana-like compounds actually fight the HIV virus in late-stage AIDS patients.
Researchers told Doctor Tipster that they already know "cannabinoid drugs" like marijuana can have a therapeutic effect in AIDS patients. But they wanted to further understand how they "influence the spread of the virus itself."
