Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a disease that can be treated but not cured. The disease attacks and destroys white blood cells known as T Cells that are needed to fight other diseases and infections. The effect is a weakening of an infected person’s immune system. This can cause someone with HIV to suffer from a variety of symptoms and medical conditions. The current treatment for AIDS/HIV is Antiretroviral Therapy, also known as ART. This can help slow and in some patients stop the progression of the disease.
Research from the University of Washington and the University of California concluded that the cannabinoids in medical marijuana may have immunological benefit by reducing the frequency of activated T Cells. This in turn may reduce the patient’s risk of developing illnesses that can often complicate the health of HIV/AIDS patients.
