Cooper recently got funding from the National Institutes of Health for a study looking at cannabinoids — including CBD in isolation — as a substitute for opioids, and numerous other clinical trials of CBD are underway. It will be several years before results are available, but these studies should help clarify both what benefits the substance may provide and any side effects it may come with. Most of the adverse effects so far associated with cannabis, such as impairments in short-term memory, coordination and judgment,2 come from products that contain THC as well as CBD, Cooper said, but we need to do more studies to find out for sure whether CBD has fewer risks. Studies are also needed to identify the best way to administer and dose CBD. “I get emails from people asking me what dose of CBD to use, and the truth is, we really don’t know,” Cooper said.
A CNN program that featured Charlotte's Web cannabis in 2013 brought increased attention to the use of CBD in the treatment of seizure disorders. Since then, 16 states have passed laws to allow the use of CBD products with a doctor's recommendation (instead of a prescription) for treatment of certain medical conditions. This is in addition to the 30 states that have passed comprehensive medical cannabis laws, which allow for the use of cannabis products with no restrictions on THC content. Of these 30 states, eight have legalized the use and sale of cannabis products without requirement for a doctor's recommendation.
What exactly is cannabidiol (CBD) and more importantly, what does it do? Those questions and more are at the heart of this comprehensive guide to one of the most fascinating and important compounds of the cannabis plant. Cannabis plants are chemical powerhouses that produce more than 400 different compounds. Not all of those compounds are unique to marijuana, of course, and appear in many other species of plants. That’s why marijuana can smell like pine trees or taste like fresh lemons. But of those 400 compounds, more than 60 of them are totally specific to the plant genus Cannabis. Scientists call these special compounds “cannabinoids.” However, not all cannabinoids are created equal. One of them, cannabidiol, or CBD, holds the key to the wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects marijuana offers.
Los beneficios del Cannabidiol (CBD) han sido documentados en tiempos previos a la era cristiana, particularmente en India. Los documentos históricos revelan vastos beneficios de esta planta, traducidos a partir de literatura sánscrita, que datan alrededor de 1400 – 2000 AC, aunque su uso terapéutico fue descrito a mayor profundidad en la medicina india Ayurveda. Incluso se encuentran registros de dichas propiedades en la antigua Grecia, hecha por Claudius Galen (131 – 201 DC) y Pedanius Dioscorides (40-90 AD).
Hola Adriana... Lo primero que te digo es que debes hacer TODO lo que los nefrólogos te indiquen. Si te dicen que debes entrar en diálisis, deberás hacerlo, porque es lo que te mantendrá con vida. Si no te haces diálisis... en cuestión de poco tiempo todo tu cuerpo se intoxicará y te llenarás de líquido hasta en los pulmones... Tú misma puedes deducir el resultado.
