In 2015, The Hebrew University of Israel published a study that documented the potency of single-molecule CBD extract versus the potency of whole-plant CBD-rich extract. It found that extract taken from whole plant CBD-rich cannabis is therapeutically superior to single-molecule extract. The scientists behind this study noticed that science had been utilizing pure, single-molecule CBD, which resulted in a bell-shaped dose-response curve. This means that CBD’s efficacy plummets at very high and very low doses.
As more and more states legalize the use of marijuana, a product known as CBD oil has surged in popularity. A chemical compound found in the cannabis plant, CBD, or cannabidiol, is non-intoxicating and does not cause the noticeable euphoric effects associated with tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC, another marijuana compound). Products marketed as CBD oil may contain THC.
Los aceites concentrados de marihuana suelen venir en botes con cuentagotas para poder medir la dosis exacta que ingerimos. La forma principal de consumirlos es vía sublingual, es decir, dejando caer las gotas bajo de nuestra lengua durante 5 segundos y, a continuación, tragar. Una forma rápida, barata y fácil de consumir Cannabinoides y beneficiarse de sus propiedades sin necesidad de fumar marihuana.
Finalmente, sería importante dejar registro del motivo de la prescripción, ya que hay diagnósticos para los cuales no contamos con ninguna evidencia. Por ejemplo, las personas consultan sobre la posibilidad de usar Cannabis medicinal (por ejemplo, Parkinson de reciente diagnóstico, esclerosis lateral amiotrófica, etc.). Por ello, debemos ser cautos y buscar además alguna forma de controlar el resultado de los tratamientos.
Industrial help has many uses, from paper and textiles to plastic and fuel. In fact, it can even be used in place of traditional paper made from trees, as hemp paper can be recycled more times than that made from wood. Hemp also yields nearly four times as much as trees. Plastic produced from hemp is also biodegradable, making it better for the environment. Hemp seeds can be used in a variety of food products as well.
Given CBD’s reputation as a popular, artisanal remedy, one would think that Epidiolex would command a lot of “off label” attention. After all, physicians often prescribe pharmaceuticals off label to treat conditions that were not the actual focus of clinical trials. But the costly price tag for Epidiolex (more than $30,000 annually) precludes off label prescribing as well as affordable access for tens of millions of Americans without health insurance.
