Can Cannabinoids Help Tinnitus? A Comprehensive Look

Tinnitus is a condition that affects millions of people around the world, and many are looking for ways to alleviate its symptoms. While there is no definitive answer as to whether or not cannabis or cannabinoids can help with tinnitus, recent research has shed some light on the subject. Animal models have not been able to provide any evidence that cannabis or cannabinoids can help with tinnitus. Studies that have attempted to prove a connection between cannabis and tinnitus have not been considered conclusive.

As such, cannabis has not been proven to be an effective treatment for tinnitus. However, it turns out that cannabinoids could actually be causing tinnitus. According to the research, more than 20% of study participants who used cannabinoid products documented hearing a ringing in their ears. This was true even for those who had never experienced tinnitus before.

In addition, marijuana users were 20 times more likely to report experiencing tinnitus symptoms within 24 hours of consumption. But it's not all bad news. There is now evidence to suggest that medical marijuana can be used to treat tinnitus on its own. It is important to note that while cannabis may be able to help with some of the symptoms of tinnitus, it is not a cure-all.

It is important to speak with your doctor before using cannabis or any other form of treatment for tinnitus.
