5 Takeaways That I Learned About Cannabis

Medical Usefulness of Cannabis Studies show that cannabis plants contain chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, that can help treat a range of illnesses and symptoms which has led into the approval of two kinds of medications containing cannabinoids in pill form by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because FDA requires for a large scale of clinical trials of any new form of medication, the cannabis plant has yet to be conducted in a large scale medium, the reason why the plant is not yet a FDA-approved medicine. Having the same chemical structure as that of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabinoids is the main component of the cannabis plant and this chemical is also found in the human body and contributes in the functioning of the natural senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight, as well as a contributor in regulating our mind process, such as feeling pleasure, memory, thinking, concentration, awareness of time, body movement, pain, and appetite. The FDA-approved medicine ingredient in cannabinoids is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which THC has been found to be useful in the following: increases appetite, reduces nausea, decreases pain, inflammation and swelling and muscle control problems, while the other form of cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD) is found to be useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, and treating some forms of mental illness. Scientists are conducting pre-clinical and clinical trials using cannabis extracts, although not yet in large scale trials, to treat symptoms of illness, such as: diseases that affect the immune system, like HIV, AIDS, multiple sclerosis; inflammation; pain; seizures; mental disorders; and even substance use disorders.
Short Course on Options – Covering The Basics
Recently, the two kinds of medicines – dronabinol and nabilone, that contain THC and are FDA-approved, are being used to treat cancer patients experiencing nausea caused by chemotherapy and are also used to treat extreme weight loss of patients suffering from AIDS. A mouth spray containing THC and CBD has been approved in Europe, UK, and Canada to treat muscle control problems caused by multisclerosis.
Why People Think Resources Are A Good Idea
Cannabis plants help reinforce the strength of medication when combined with other herbal plants to benefit many kinds of illnesses, such as: cannabis combined with lemon balm and hops helps to reduce stress by relaxing the physical and mental state of the body; cannabis combined with ginseng is useful in the treatment of cholesterol, diabetes, nervousness; cannabis with turmeric helps in the digestion, reduces inflammation, and treatment of cancer; cannabis combined with St. John’s wort and Rhodiola treats depression and protects the heart; and many more beneficial combinations. Some side-effects of cannabis use have been noted: cannabis when taken in strong doses has a tendency to unbalance the nervous system causing short/medium term loss of memory, concentration, drive, loss of self-control, loss of ability to analyse, and can cause a sense of detachment; smoking cannabis can weaken the immune system.
