Cannabis for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Studies and Information on Cannabis for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

This type of lung disease is characterized by a narrowing of the airways, which decreases the possible passage of gas exchange in and out of the lungs. In the paradigm of orthodox medicine, the major culprit of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is cigarette smoking.

The constant presence of toxic gases produces an initial low-grade inflammation of the lung tissue. As the inflammation slowly progresses, the lungs develop chronic bronchitis, and symptoms such as chronic coughing occur.
