Tinnitus by Charles Andrew

I have found that marijuana is effective for the relief of a constant ringing in the ears. This also allows a good night's sleep. If you look on Medline you will see a story on memantine and tinnitus, by the ENT Dept.  in Munich, Germany.  I recommend this abstract for the explanation of its action.  I would be interested if you can see a similar explanation for marijuana.  Tinnitus is an age-related disease that affects 16% of the American population and certainly deserves more attention than it is getting.  I can tell you that the loudness is a function of psychological stress and it can even lead to a feeling of vomiting. I hope this helps.
