Cannabis oil Shows Great Promise in Treating Cancer.

This is why it’s so important to eschew such cure-related hyperbole when reviewing the cancer-treating components of cannabis oil, which could all too easily be lumped into the same National Enquirer “wonder cure” category. The National Cancer Institute has said that “Cannabis oil has been shown to kill cancer cells in the laboratory.” (Presumably it does something similar outside of the laboratory, but taking cannabis oil from lab to bedside is an exercise in Schedule-I bureaucratic frustration.) In addition, the NCI states that “[c]annabinoids appear to kill tumour cells but do not affect their non-transformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death.” Anecdotes of success in treating cancer with cannabis oil can’t be ignored—they’re what’s driven the medicalization of cannabis oil for a long time. This is because cannabis oil is what’s known as “pro-apoptotic.” Apoptosis means that a cell commits suicide. Cannabis oil encourages this in some cancer cells while

A Drop at a Time: How Cannabis Oil Is Transforming Lives of Cancer Patients.

“It was remarkable. It was nearly like this dissonance of data.” Not long after beginning his search, George pitched upon the rising swarm of investigation that recommends cannabis oil may be an effective tool for reducing tumours and combatting cancer. As lately as 2013, investigations completed at the Complutense University of Madrid have found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) actually causes cancer cells to auto-digest in animal models, thereby drastically lessening tumour size and prevalence. While there's a well of data on the topic found in numerous tutorial journals (there is even associate annual international convention on cannabinoid medication wherever doctors and researchers present their findings), most of this analysis is under-publicized and remains in the form of difficult-to-understand scientific language. However, at the same time, many people find it hard to give legitimacy to the waves of anecdotal information that claims cannabis oil is effective for everythi

NEW STUDY FINDS THAT MOST PEOPLE USE RICK SIMPSONS OIL FOR EVIDENCE-BASED REASONS

Researchers looked at why Americans are signing up for Rick Simpsons Oil, and whether cannabis’s benefits for their conditions were backed by science. New research published in the journal Health Affairs offers insight into why Americans are using Rick Simpsons Oil in the United States. Researchers from the University of Michigan reviewed the patterns of Rick Simpsons Oil use by analyzing patient registry data from states that have legalized cannabis oil. They then looked at whether research findings back the efficacy of cannabis oil for each condition. “We did this research because we wanted to get the reasons why people are using cannabis medically and whether those reasons for use are evidence-based,” said research author Kevin Boehnke, Ph.D., a Research Fellow in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center. Studying the Use of Rick Simpsons Oil in the U.S. Boehnke and his colleagues were able to obtain patient-reported qualifying

RICK SIMPSONS OIL IS NOW WIDELY USED AS A SUBSTITUTE OR SUPPLEMENT TO TRADITIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

The use of cannabis oil for medicinal purposes dates back centuries. From its primitive known use in Ancient China to today, our awareness of potential Rick Simpsons Oil uses has grown. In the United States, marijuana was widely utilized as a patented medicine during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It’s been only in the last few decades, though, researchers and medical experts started to truly understand Rick Simpsons Oil benefits. With that growing acknowledgement of cannabis and its therapeutic effects, attitudes toward the substance have shifted dramatically. This has led to a significant expansion in legal access throughout the United States and the globe. WHAT IS RICK SIMPSONS OIL? Rick Simpsons Oil refers to using the cannabis plant or its extracts to treat symptoms of an illness or a disease. Cannabis contains more than 400 chemical aggregates that when absorbed interact with the body’s systems. Many of these compounds, particularly a type of active chemical co

CANNABIS OIL AND OBESITY – CANNABIS OIL USE ASSOCIATED WITH A LOWER BMI

In this research on cannabis oil and obesity, researchers found that men who used cannabis oil had a lower body mass index (BMI) than non-users. It has often been a question of whether there is a link between marijuana and obesity. Findings in a new investigation published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine recommend that long-term cannabis oil use is associated with a lower body mass index (BMI). Body mass index is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. The measure is used to screen adults 21 years and older for weight classes that can increase the risk for serious health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and even cancer. A high BMI can be an indicator of unhealthy levels of body fat and obesity. High body fat is a major health issue in the United States. More than one in three adults in the United States were regarded to be overweight or obese, according to 2013-2014 data from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey. Abou

CANNABIS OIL DOES NOT CAUSE MORPHOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE BRAIN, TWO STUDIES FIND

The pair of researches have found evidence that using cannabis oil does not have extensive effects on brain structure. Two new investigations dispute the long-standing myth that cannabis oil use leads to long-term changes in brain structure. Learn about the conclusions of the two new studies on marijuana effects on the brain below. Cannabis oil and Brain Structure of Teens and Young Adults In the first research, published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine compared 781 brain scans of non-cannabis users, irregular cannabis oil users (one to two times weekly), and frequent cannabis oil users (more than three times weekly). The study’s subjects were young people aged 14-22 years old. Neuroimaging showed that the brains of those who did not use cannabis oil at all were similar to those who occasionally or frequently used marijuana. “There were no significant differences by cannabis oil group in gl

STUDY SHOWS CANNABIS OIL IMPROVES SYMPTOMS OF CROHN’S ILLNESS

Eight weeks of treatment with cannabis oil caused a big reduction in Crohn’s illness symptoms compared to a placebo. Cannabis oil can lessen pain and improve quality of life in patients diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, according to new research recently presented at the European Gastroenterology Conference. Crohn’s illness may be a chronic inflammatory internal organ illness that affects the liner of the alimentary tract. Most common in adults 19-40 years, the disease can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhoea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. To assess the effects of cannabis oil on Crohn’s disease, specialists in Israel used a randomized, placebo-controlled investigation involving 45 people with moderately severe cases of the disease. For eight weeks, the participants with either given cannabis oil or placebo. Their symptom severity, quality of life, and inflammation in the gut were measured before, during, and after treatments. “Cannabis oil has been used for hundre
