Josh and his brothers developed a non-psychotropic strain of marijuana which is drastically reducing seizures for pediatric epilepsy patients in Colorado.
The complexity of medical cannabis stems from the millions of combinations of doses and cannabinoid/terpene profiles. Despite this challenge, a systematic and intelligent approach can lead to informed recommendations that most benefit patients. Over time as more research is gathered, these recommendations will become progressively more robust, leading to higher levels of satisfaction with the first recommendation.
More importantly, modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and pathological conditions, ranging from mood and anxiety disorders, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, to cancer, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity/metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis, to name just a few.
Liting Deng, Lindsay Ng, Tatsuya Ozawa and Nephi Stella Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics November 7, 2016, jpet.116.236968; DOI: https://doi.org/10.1124/jpet.116.236968 Abstract Evidence suggests that the non-psychotropic cannabis-derived compound, cannabidiol (CBD), has anti-neoplastic activity in multiple types of cancers, including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). DNA-damaging agents remain the main standard of care treatment available for patients… Continue reading Quantitative analyses of synergistic responses between cannabidiol and DNA-damaging agents on the proliferation and viability of glioblastoma and neural progenitor cells in culture
