Does Marijuana cure Tinnitus
Written by CEO-Kevin Faler & Co-author Mercedes Varela
Does Marijuana cure Tinnitus, a lot people experience an occasional or ongoing ringing (or roaring, hissing, buzzing, or tinkling) in one or both ears. The sound usually lasts only a few minutes or for some never seems to stop. Ringing in the ears that does not get better or go away is called tinnitus. You may hear a sound, such as a ringing or roaring, that does not come from your surroundings (nobody else can hear it.) The sound may keep time with your heartbeat, it may keep pace with your breathing, it may be constant, or it may come and go it just depends on the individual. Tinnitus is most common in people older than age 40. Men have problems with tinnitus more often than women. However, this does not mean that someone younger may not be stricken by Tinnitus.
Moving on, it is said that marijuana is not a cure for Tinnitus but most people who have consumed marijuana have said it gives them great relief from anxiety. You see, the reason for the anxiety….. is most people have sensationalized it in their minds…. they are going to go deaf or cannot function in life with the screaming in their ears. It causes a lot of people to be upset and mad at the world or even loved ones because there is no cure. People self medicate in order to have some pain relief. In doing some research of the American Tinnitus Association we have seen comments by viewers who say the anxiety is very stressful and that is why they self medicate with marijuana and that it at least gives them temporary relief.
Of course, there is no cure, however there are unscrupulous people in the world who would like to make you think there is…some even in foreign countries who attempt to get you to believe they have found a cure in their country. Only to find out it was a big farce to begin with and it really was only a money sucking scam. Even medical doctors have been known to be caught up in the scam. Most MD’s will prescribe Xanax to patients who have anxiety and it does work but like stated here marijuana basically gives the same result versus using a pharmaceutical. On the positive side, there are many people who are giving people… and those people have donated millions to the research for a cure. One day there will be a cure and here at Legalze.co believe the cure will be found right under our nose..and it will be an easy fix…it is just a matter of time before it is revealed to us. Are you getting medication from a medical marijuana dispensary? If not we here at Legalize.co strongly suggest you visit a reputable marijuana dispensary and they can tell you which strain would be best for your condition. Never, never give up hope there will be a cure and you will get better.

Take a look at the information below and perhaps it will give a little bit of terminology understanding of what Tinnitus really has been identified as:
There are two main types of tinnitus you may experience.
- Pulsatile (like a heartbeat) tinnitus is often caused by sounds created by muscle movements near the ear, changes in the ear canal, or blood flow (vascular) problems in the face or neck. You could hear sounds such as your own pulse or the contractions of your muscles.
- Nonpulsatile tinnitus is caused by problems in the nerves involved with hearing. You may hear sounds in one or both ears. Sometimes this type of tinnitus is described as coming from inside the head and or mind.
The most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss that occurs with aging (presbycusis), but it can also be caused by living or working around loud noises (acoustic trauma). Tinnitus can occur with all types of hearing loss and may be a symptom of almost any ear disorder. Other possible causes of tinnitus include:
- A crusty buildup of earwax.
- Medicines, especially antibiotics or large amounts of aspirin.
- Drinking an excessive amount of alcoholic beverages or caffeinated beverages.
- Serious ear infections or eardrum rupture.
- Dental or other problems affecting the mouth, such as temporomandibular (TM) problems. This does not mean a normal toothache after eating ice or something similar.
- Injuries, such as whiplash or a direct blow to the ear or head could possibly be the culprit.
- Injury to the inner ear following surgery or radiation therapy to the head or neck.
- A rapid change in environmental pressure (barotrauma.)
- Severe weight loss from malnutrition or excessive dieting. Meaning 10lbs or more.
- Super over done exercise with the neck in a hyper-extended position, such as when bicycle riding, wrestling, boxing.
- Restriction of blood flow (vascular) problems, such as carotid atherosclerosis, AV malformations, and high blood pressure (hypertension.)
- Nerve problems, not just being nervous over spilled milk but (neurological disorders), such as multiple sclerosis or migraine headache.
- Other diseases. These may include:
