A new study has recently shown that marijuana could be used to treat autoimmune disorders such as arthritis and diabetes. The study was conducted by Indian-origin scientists.

These results have raised questions about how harmful marijuana actually is. In fact, marijuana when used in moderation can help with pain, relaxation and can reduce the feeling of nausea and can also stimulate a person’s appetite, according to numerous studies.

Researchers from the School of Medicine University performed a test on mice where they injected them with THC and analyzed their RNA.

Out of the 609 mice tested, the researchers identified only 13 that were highly altered by the THC they were injected with.
