Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Cannabis and Asthma: Managing Symptoms Naturally

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that affects millions of people worldwide. While conventional treatments like inhalers and steroids are commonly prescribed to manage asthma symptoms, some individuals are exploring alternative approaches, including the use of cannabis. In this blog, we will delve into the potential benefits and risks of using cannabis to manage asthma symptoms naturally.

Understanding Asthma

Before we discuss the role of cannabis in managing asthma, it's important to understand the condition itself. Asthma is characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness. While asthma can be managed with medication, it is a complex condition with varying triggers and symptoms among individuals.

The Endocannabinoid System

Cannabis contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with the most well-known being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). These compounds interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors found throughout the body. The ECS plays a vital role in regulating various physiological functions, including immune response, inflammation, and pain perception.

Cannabis and Inflammation

One of the potential benefits of cannabis in managing asthma is its anti-inflammatory properties. Asthma is characterized by chronic inflammation in the airways, leading to the constriction of bronchial tubes. Some studies suggest that cannabinoids, particularly CBD, have anti-inflammatory effects and may help reduce airway inflammation in asthma patients.

Bronchodilation Effects

Another potential benefit of cannabis for asthma is its bronchodilator properties. Bronchodilators are medications that help relax the airway muscles, allowing for improved airflow. Some studies have shown that THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, can act as a bronchodilator. However, it's important to note that THC can also cause short-term bronchoconstriction in some individuals, which may exacerbate asthma symptoms.

CBD for Asthma

CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and has gained attention for its potential therapeutic properties. While research on CBD's direct effects on asthma is limited, its anti-inflammatory and bronchodilatory properties suggest it may have some benefit in managing symptoms. However, more research is needed to fully understand CBD's role in asthma treatment.

Potential Risks and Considerations

Before considering cannabis as a natural remedy for asthma, it's crucial to be aware of potential risks and considerations:
Smoking: Smoking cannabis can irritate the lungs and worsen asthma symptoms. Consider alternative methods of consumption, such as vaporization or edibles.
Dosage: Finding the right dosage and strain of cannabis is essential. High doses of THC can lead to anxiety and paranoia, which can exacerbate asthma symptoms.

Legal Status: Cannabis laws vary by region, so it's important to be aware of the legal status in your area.
Consult a Healthcare Professional: If you are considering using cannabis to manage your asthma symptoms, consult with a healthcare professional who can provide guidance and monitor your progress.



While there is some evidence to suggest that cannabis, particularly CBD, may offer benefits in managing asthma symptoms naturally, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. The complex nature of asthma and the varying responses to cannabis among individuals make it essential to exercise caution and seek medical advice before incorporating cannabis into your asthma management plan. As research on cannabis and asthma continues to evolve, it is essential to stay informed about the latest findings and consult with healthcare professionals to make informed decisions about your asthma treatment.
