Tinnitus and Marijuana Information: Treat Tinnitus With Cannabis

Tinnitus refers to “ringing in the ears” when no other sound is present. Tinnitus can sound like hissing, roaring, pulsing, whooshing, chirping, whistling, or clicking.

Tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease, and it has a variety of causes that may arise anywhere in the hearing mechanism. It begins in the ear with the tympanic membrane and the cochlea, where sound is transmitted and transformed into electrical energy for the brain to perceive.

Conditions that might cause tinnitus include:

  • Hearing loss
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Loud noise exposure
  • Migraine headaches
  • Head injury
  • Stress
  • TMJ disorders
  • Too much wax in the ear
  • Certain types of tumors
