Cannabis can bring relief to Millions with Tinnitus
Tinnitus is a persistent noise or ringing in the ears often described as a sensation ranging from buzzing, whistling, ticking, roaring, chirping, to clicking, among other sounds. This noise is usually inside a person’s head in the absence of auditory stimulation.
It can also include sounds that slightly resemble human voices or even a pure steady tone like that heard during a hearing test and, in some cases, pressure changes from the interior ear. This sound may be soft or loud, low pitched or high pitched and appear to be coming from one ear or both.Most of the time, it comes on gradually.
In some people, the sound causes depression, anxiety or interferes with concentration.According to a report by the Hearing Health Foundation, as many as 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus, with about 16 million of them seeking medical attention due to the discomfort from the condition.
