Study Claims Cannabis May Help Sinus Infections

According to Benzinga, the results from the recent investigation released in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery indicate that cannabis users might suffer fewer bouts that cause sneezing, congestion, or sinus pain than those who haven’t ever used cannabis.

“Regular cannabis use was associated with a lower prevalence of sinonasal symptoms, whereas nonregular cannabis use was not associated with sinonasal symptoms,” the researchers stated.

The study comprised the participation of 2269 U.S. adults aged 20 to 69. The data analyzed earlier in the year came from the 2013-2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Around 45 percent of cannabis users regularly reported they frequently experienced nasal congestion and sneezing, and sinus pain. This is in contrast to the 65percent of those who had never used cannabis reported the same.

Although more research is required to discover how marijuana users tend to be less susceptible to suffering from the symptoms, Kevin Hur, who is an otolaryngologist at the University of Southern Cal’s Keck School of Medicine, states that those who suffer from sinus or nasal problems might be avoiding cannabis consumption to prevent the symptoms.
