Summary of "Is marijuana use associated with lower inflammation? Results from waves III and IV of the national longitudinal study of adolescent to adult health."

Some research suggests that marijuana use facilitates an anti-inflammatory response, yet the relationship between marijuana use and inflammation, as measured by C-reactive protein (CRP), remains poorly understood. The present study examined the association between recency of marijuana use and serum C-reactive protein levels in a nationally representative sample of adults.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Medicinal or recreational utilization of MARIJUANA.

The excessive use of marijuana with associated psychological symptoms and impairment in social or occupational functioning.

High-amplitude compression waves, across which density, pressure, and particle velocity change drastically. The mechanical force from these shock waves can be used for mechanically disrupting tissues and deposits.

A nonsurgical treatment that uses either HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES or low energy ACOUSTIC WAVES to treat various musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., PLANTAR FASCIITIS; TENNIS ELBOW). A probe placed on the skin conducts the shock waves thereby delivering a mechanical force to the body’s tissues.

Electromagnetic waves with frequencies between about 3 kilohertz (very low frequency - VLF) and 300,000 megahertz (extremely high frequency - EHF). They are used in television and radio broadcasting, land and satellite communications systems, radionavigation, radiolocation, and DIATHERMY. The highest frequency radio waves are MICROWAVES.
