The medical cannabis plant, also known as medicinal marijuana, contains a variety of cannabinoids. Doctors usually prescribe it to patients. The plant has been found to contain two distinct types of chemicals that have the potential to alleviate many common ailments. These chemicals include the CB2 receptors as well the CBD, or cannabidiol. They are believed to be natural plant killers.
Because of the many benefits they have seen, medicinal cannabis is becoming a popular choice for many people. It is recommended for treating epilepsy, cancer, and muscle spasms. People with chronic obstructive lung disease, glaucoma, cataracts, and glaucoma should not use medicinal cannabis. Only a specialist should be consulted before using medicinal cannabis.
Although there are many forms of medical cannabis, such as pills, inhalation and vaporizers, it is believed that the inhalation method is the most effective. This is because of the chemical composition of cannabis. This is illustrated further by the fact that a cigarette is a cigarette. Inhaling the smoke makes your lungs more prone to infections than just merely puffing on a cigarette. It has been deduced that the smoke from medicinal cannabis sativa plant acts like an antibiotic that kills harmful bacteria but leaves the friendly bacteria unharmed thus minimizing the risks of causing damage to the respiratory system.
Medical cannabis is now being used to treat different diseases including chronic pain and also psychiatric conditions like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, etc. The CB2 receptor is responsible for this action. Since the body has only one CB2 receptor, all other CB2 -related receptors in the body get ignored. The plant is able to bypass the first and second lines of protection.
Medical cannabis can also be used to treat chronic pain and other psychiatric issues. Studies have shown that medical cannabis can slow down the progression of the disease. As such, more hospitals and clinics are offering this treatment. However, there is still no complete medical cannabis cure yet. Tilray, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, has agreed to produce and distribute a cannabis-based pharmaceutical under the brand “Cannabis Cancer” in the ongoing medical education and research. This will be used to treat advanced cancer patients.
Another medical cannabis product that is used for the treatment of chronic pain is the prescription drug “Relora Max”. This is a non-intrusive, muscle relaxant that is believed to work by blocking the neuro-transmitters that encourage nerve firing. Although the exact mechanism of this action is still unknown, it is believed that it regulates synaptic plasticity. This may be a factor in chronic pain pathophysiology. Relora Max is also used to treat spasticity. Metabolic Pharmaceuticals Limited is a manufacturer of both “ReloraMax” and “endoCyclen”.
Canada is currently considering allowing medical cannabis to be used for chronic pain management in patients suffering from intractable epilepsy. These patients would also be able to grow and obtain raw, unpolluted cannabis extract (cannabis extract) from the Canadian government. Ronaiah Syldon, Canadian Health Minister, has stated that he supports the idea for a free article published in Canadian Medical Association Journal. However, opposition parties like Paul Douglas, Conservative MP are concerned about the lack of evidence that cannabis can reduce chronic pain. In the meantime, a non-profit organization called Patients for Safe Medicine has launched a website to help patients in British Columbia locate local doctors who are willing to prescribe and provide medicinal cannabis to patients suffering from serious medical illnesses.
We welcome any additional information about pharmaceutical cannabis. However, the most recent Canadian medical journal “PNAS-2”, does not recommend the use of cannabis as a medicinal form. Rather, PNAS-2 recommends that Canadian patients use a FDA-approved pharmaceutical manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals to relieve the symptoms associated with chronic pain, such as cancer pain, spasticity and glaucoma. “PNAS-2” does advise that the FDA has not approved any such product as safe and effective at treating the various debilitating medical conditions that it has approved marijuana to treat. However, the petition was signed by a number of respected doctors calling for the rescheduling cannabis to be included among the pharmaceuticals that are acceptable for the treatment of serious medical illnesses. If this move was brought about, it is very likely that hundreds of thousands of Canadian patients who currently use medicinal cannabis as a remedy for their pain and other conditions may be affected.
