There is compelling evidence that cannabis is an effective antiemetic, anti-inflammatory, immune modulating, analgesic and antispasmodic agent. These properties are indicated for patients suffering from Hepatitis C. Years of recorded medical use have shown no long term consequences. Many patients who use cannabis report they are able to continue the use of their prescription medications only when the side effect can be mitigated with cannabis. Marijuana also has recognized anti-anxiety, anti-depressant and stress reducing qualities which ease psychological symptoms and side effects as well as helping to prevent substance abuse relapse. Cannabis has the ability to stimulate appetite, which many Hepatitis C patients find beneficial. Medical Marijuana has been helpful in relieving symptoms associated with this condition such as pain, headaches, lack of appetite, and nausea.
