Although I've had a medical marijuana prescription for some time I've only started using it on a daily basis for a few days as I nibbled an edible and felt my temperature go down. That's huge to me as I've been struggling with low grade fever for a year.
Fever makes me hella weak. Heretofore my ways of coping were cold seltzer, ice bars, and ibuprofen. Ibuprofen hurts my liver and is no longer effective anyway.
I wasn't sure my thoughts were correct so looked it up online and, yes, it reduces fever.
"Clinically, cannabis appears to actually lower temperature and a couple of patients have described a sense of cold with transient shivering. The question could be answered readily by comparing temperatures of persons who have THC metabolites in their urine and people who don't. If there turns out to be a significantly lower temperature in the cannabis-using population, one might posit a slower metabolic rate which, over time, might have implications for longevity. Temperature has a significant effect on metabolic rate. We have to understand the mechanism of hypothermogenesis."
I first really thought about it consciously last Thursday when I took a nibble as I thought less spasticity would perhaps help me hold urine as I was weak and knew I'd never be able to hold it until I was strong enough to get up. I was surprised when I was later able to get up 2.5 hours earlier than I'd expected, at 7:45.
