Ailments Can Marijuana Most Effectively Treat

Which Ailments Can Marijuana Most Effectively Treat?


icon  14 Jun, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

The acceptance of medical marijuana as treatment has grown to the extent that many are already seeking medical treatment via cannabis. A multitude of services, such as cannabis clinics, dispensaries, and cannabis and medical marijuana delivery, have cropped up in order to supply an increasing number of patients.

Despite these advances, medical marijuana has not yet received the extensive clinical study that could provide strong validation of its therapeutic and medicinal effects. However, a number of smaller-scale studies do exist that have documented its effectiveness in treating certain illnesses.

Below Are Ten Ailments And The Effectiveness Of Medical Marijuana On Their Treatment:

AIDS/HIV

 Medical marijuana may help with the neuropathic pain which sufferers of AIDS/HIV experience. The findings are similar to those of oral drugs used for chronic neuropathic pain derived from HIV-associated sensory neuropathy.

Cannabis has also shown promising effects in treating the symptoms of wasting syndrome, which include appetite loss, pain, and anxiety. It may therefore provide significant relief as a form of lifestyle improvement for those afflicted with AIDS/HIV.

Alzheimer’s

There is a possibility that marijuana could slow the progression of the protein deposits that may cause Alzheimer’s. There is still speculation concerning the cause of Alzheimer’s and whether such proteins are linked to the disease.

Marijuana is more useful in treating the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, which include lessening agitated behavior (sleeping better or feeling less worried or depressed) and help gaining weight.

Arthritis

Cannabinoids can help regulate the secretion and function of regulatory proteins from immune cells. As a result, marijuana may aid in the treatment of inflammatory disease. Patients have reported less pain on movement and at rest following use of medical marijuana as treatment. Medical marijuana additionally helps patients to sleep better.

Asthma

 Studies have proven that cannabis may have potent dilating effects on the airways. However, its therapeutic value is eclipsed by the fact that some patients respond to smoking marijuana with bronchospasm, which causes constriction of the air passages in the lung.

Cancer

 Evidence has suggested that marijuana may kill certain cancer cells. It could also stop cancerous tumor growth. THC, an active compound within marijuana, was shown to improve the effectiveness of radiation on cancer cells in mice.

Cannabis has proven to be a more potent aid for cancer patients’ life improvement. It has been known to prevent the nausea accompanying chemotherapy and is especially useful for patients with a severity of these symptoms: inhaling marijuana is recognized for its ease of consumption since it eliminates the problems of swallowing and keeping down a pill. The British Medical Association and the American Institute of Medicine have both declared medical marijuana used for the nausea and vomiting induced by chemotherapy as one of the best therapeutic uses of cannabis.

Chronic pain

 According to the Institute of Medicine, both animal and human studies involving cannabinoids have shown “substantial analgesic effect.” This belief has existed as early as the 1800s whereby it was widely used for pain relief.

As mentioned earlier, there is evidence that cannabinoids may be involved in the regulation of neuropathic pain. Studies also suggest that it may also help with acute pain.

Crohn’s disease

 Cannabinoids can have an effect on gastrointestinal motility and could additionally have an anti-diarrheal effect. Marijuana is most useful in this respect for improving Crohn’s disease patients’ quality of life: weight gain, pain reduction, and improvement in mental distress can all be addressed with medical cannabis.

Epilepsy

 In a study of 213 patients, medical marijuana administered to patients resulted in a reduction in frequency of certain seizures. More solid evidence regarding the use of marijuana to treat epilepsy has yet to be discovered.

Glaucoma

 THC can impact the optic nerve and lower eye pressure. However, it may also lower blood pressure, which could be damaging to the optic nerve on account of low blood supply.

Multiple Sclerosis

 Marijuana may help with muscle spasms, tremors, pain, and stiffness.

Does Cannabis Actually Help Reduce the Size of Tumors

Does Cannabis Actually Help Reduce the Size of Tumors?

With the popularity of marijuana clinicsand marijuana dispensaries on the rise, the medicinal properties of cannabis are by now better known and better received by the public and medical professionals alike. Marijuana treatment is most commonly applied to ailments such as glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and to combat the side effects of chemotherapy. However, recent research has sought to conclude the medicinal benefits of cannabis for treating cancer, more specifically, the reduction of cancerous tumors.

The effect of medical Cannabis on brain tumors

A large portion of what is known about medical marijuana’s ability to combat cancerous cells derives from research on glioblastomamultiformeor “GBM” (a high grade glioma) and glioma tumor cells, which make up 80% of all of brain tumors. Scientists believe that due to brain cells having the highest concentration of cannabinoid (the active compounds in marijuana) receptors, brain tumors, which contain many of these receptors, may respond well to cannabinoids.

Researchers at Complutense Univeristy in Spain discovered that THC, one of medical marijuana’s cannabinoids, caused the deterioration of brain cancer cells in a process termed as “autophagy”. Autophagy is the process by which cells feed upon themselves. When mice with human tumors were given THC, the growth of the tumors slowed down. In addition, two human patients with aggressive brain tumors tested positive for signs of autophagy.

Another study conducted by St. George’s University of London claimed “dramatic reductions” in high-grade gliomawhen a combination of radiation and cannabinoids was administered. The tumors reduced in size in many of the cases. Dr. Wai Liu, one of the study’s lead authors proclaimed, “The results showed that the final effect was superior to the sum of the parts. Hopefully, these results will support calls for formal trials in humans to test these combinations.”

Medical marijuana’s effect on breast cancer cells

The University of East Anglia (UEA) in collaboration with the University of Complutense conducted additional studies of the effect of marijuana on mice that had samples of breast cancer cells. The study found that two cell receptors were responsive to what could be the anti-tumor properties of cannabis. UEA’s Dr. Peter McCormick confidently proclaimed that THC, “is known to act through a specific family of cell receptors called cannabinoid receptors. We show that these effects are mediated via the joint interaction of CB2 and GPR55—two members of the cannabinoid receptor family.”As a result of this study, McCormick is confident that THC “has anti-cancer properties” and that “By identifying the receptors involved we have provided an important step towards the future development of therapeutics that can take advantage of the interactions we have discovered to reduce tumor growth.”

Admissions from NIDA

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), an institution of the United States’ federal government, has itself admitted that medical marijuana is capable of treating certain cancer cells. As a result of the growing interest and clinical studies of the effects of medical cannabis on cancerous tumors, NIDA admitted in an April 2015 publication that, “recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others. Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors. Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation.”The fact that this admission comes from a federal government run institution is a definite step forward towards more studies that examine the effects of medical marijuana on tumor shrinkage.

It is clear that there is convincing evidence to suggest that medical cannabis has positive effects on the shrinking of tumors. However, in order to deem this research more conclusive, more clinical trials must be conducted.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

Dabbing is a method through which people medicate themselves with cannabis concentrates. PotValet is committed to offer only the safest and cleanest concentrates. The oils for dabbing are obtained through numerous extraction methods, giving the dabs different names such as BHO (butane hash oil), rosin, CO2 oil, budder and wax. All of these products are powerful medicines for those dealing with chronic pain and nausea.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

You have probably heard some concerns regarding dabbing. While the process itself is not at all dangerous, some extraction methods may carry the potential to harm the consumer. For example, chemical contaminants like butane may have some hazardous consequences. PotValet offers the best concentrates, which are only RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) and CO2 based. Let’s see what each of these extraction methods has to offer.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The RSO extraction method is preferred to the one of water or alcohol. It involves the use of naphthalene and it is prepared with the intent of delivering high amounts of 100% bioavailable THC that will fight cancers and other severe illnesses. This is why the RSO extraction is preferred amongst those who suffer from serious diseases. It should be noted that traditional RSO is a high THC product.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The CO2 Extraction Method

This method used carbon dioxide under extreme pressure. The result is the separation of cannabinoids from the plant. More than this, the CO2 extraction decarboxylates the cannabis completely, meaning that anything obtained is 100% bioavailable and can be consumed in any way – eaten, smoked or vaped. It doesn’t matter how you consume this concentrated, it will be super effective.
The RSO and CO2 extractions are preferred by PotValet because they offer better results than the water or alcohol extractions. As said earlier, the THC obtained after such extractions is more effective and more bioavailable than the one obtained through other methods.

How Does Dabbing Work?


icon  23 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

How Does Dabbing Work?

In case you are somehow involved with cannabis, whether medically, recreationally or from a business point of view, then you have probably heard about “dabbing”. It’s been over a decade since this method of consumption has been around, but the onset of more progressive extraction methods has brought on more cannabis concentrates, making dabbing more popular than ever.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

A dab is a dose of cannabis concentrate. The dabbing method involves heating the concentrate on a hot surface and then inhaling it through a dab ring. The dabs are obtained by extracting cannabinoids, including THC, with a solvent, which is usually butane or carbon dioxide. The final result is a sticky oil that is commonly known as shatter, wax, budder or BHO (butane hash oil). The good news for some is that there is the possibility of extracting only the THC, which is the really medicine in marijuana.

The Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Concentrates are so beneficial because they give the patient a powerful dose of the medicine. Those who suffer from chronic pain or nausea have reported that dabbing gave them immediate relief. The quantity of flowers to be smoked in order to get the same results would not be possible in patients who really need the medicine.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Are There Any Dangers?

The answer to this question is yes. Making extracts can be very dangerous if not controlled in a professional environment. Professional extractors shy away from the precarious “open” extraction method that can be conducted at home. They opt for the “closed” extraction method, which is safer, done in professional environments, with sophisticated equipment. More than this, there are many other extraction methods available. For example, the CO2 or the ice-water extraction; these are much safer and reduce the possibility of an explosion.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

While dabbing may be in an awkward phase at the moment, there are many advantages associated with this method. All in all, cannabis concentrates have a lot to offer patients and cannabis consumers. Dabbing is just one ingenious method amongst others.

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana


icon  20 Jan, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana

At this point, only 6% of medical studies about marijuana are analyzing its medicinal properties. It seems there are at least 2 active chemicals with medicinal applications in this plant. These chemicals are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While CBD impacts the brain without the high, the THC provides the high and pain relief, plus other properties. With that being said, let’s have a look at the top 3 most popular uses for medical marijuana.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Can Be Used to Treat Glaucoma

The eye disease known as glaucoma causes the pressure in the eyeball to increase. This damages the optic nerve and ends up in loss of vision. Marijuana can be used to treat and prevent glaucoma, as it decreases the pressure in the eye, according to the National Eye Institute. The effects of marijuana slow down the way the disease is progressing, and in the end, it may prevent blindness.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Helps Control Epileptic Seizures

A study conducted in 2013 shows that marijuana can prevent the seizures epilepsy is causing. Robert J. DeLorenzo from the Virginia Commonwealth University experienced with marijuana on epileptic rats. The results of the study showed that marijuana can rid the rats of seizures for about 10 hours. Like THC, other active chemicals in marijuana, bind to the brain cells that control excitability and regulate relaxation.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Stops Cancer From Spreading

The researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco informed in 2007 that CBD prevent cancers from spreading. The study was published in the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal, and explained how cannabidiol turns off a gene known as Id-1. Cancer is triggered by the fact that cancer cells make more copies of this gene than of non-cancerous cells, and this way the cancerous cells spread through the entire body. The scientists studied breast cancer cells in the lab, which after being treated with cannabidiol, had lower Id-1 expression and were less aggressive spreaders.
