Tiene una gran variedad de usos medicinales, nutricionales y cosméticos, por lo que es un maravilloso ingrediente multiusos. El aceite puede contener trazas de THC (tetrahidrocannabinol), el principal psicoactivo fitoquímico que se encuentra en la planta de cannabis, sin embargo, la cantidad sería tan insignificante que no produciría ningún efecto psicoactivas.
Donald Abrams was a member of the committee that reviewed the evidence that went into producing the report, and he said that the studies they reviewed overwhelmingly used pharmaceutically available preparations that contain THC, including dronabinol, nabilone and the whole-plant extract spray nabiximols, which contains equal parts CBD and THC. It’s impossible to know whether the benefits of cannabis can also be obtained from CBD alone, Abrams said, because CBD is just one of 400 chemicals present in the plant. So far, CBD in isolation has been studied in only a handful of randomized, placebo-controlled trials (considered the gold standard of evidence in medical research), and the evidence remains sparse.
En un estudio cruzado de doble ciego realizado por Wilsey B., se observó la reacción de treinta y ocho pacientes con dolor neuropático central y periférico que se sometieron a tratamiento con cannabis. Aquí se pudo comprobar que sí hubo una respuesta analgésica sobre estos pacientes, además los efectos psicoactivos fueron mínimos y bien tolerados.
But he wasn’t finished. In February of 1980, Dr. Mechoulam teamed up with South American researchers to publish a study regarding cannabis and epilepsy. This study is seen as one of the earliest double-blind studies of CBD on clinical subjects. The study Dr. Mechoulam and his team conducted included 16 people, many of whom were children, who all suffered from severe epilepsy. The results were startling: Every subject who received CBD experienced improvement in their condition with little to no side effects. This anticonvulsant study has since proven to be an integral milestone in the world of clinical marijuana research, but largely went unnoticed at the time.
In this edition of Cannabis Conversations, Project CBD Director, Martin A. Lee, discusses the benefits of CBD, the "entourage effect" and the microbiome with Dr. Ethan Russo. A neurologist, scientist, and widely published author, Dr. Russo is currently the director of research and development at the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute in Prague (www.icci.science).
Some manufacturers ship CBD products nationally, an illegal action which the FDA has not enforced in 2018, with CBD remaining the subject of an FDA investigational new drug evaluation, and is not considered legal as a dietary supplement or food ingredient as of December 2018. Federal illegality has made it difficult historically to conduct research on CBD. CBD is openly sold in head shops and health food stores in some states where such sales have not been explicitly legalized.
La quimioterapia es un tipo de tratamiento que detiene o ralentiza el crecimiento de las células cancerosas. Si bien se ha demostrado que es eficaz para matar las células cancerosas que se están dividiendo rápidamente, en muchos casos también puede causar efectos secundarios debilitantes, como dolor nervioso o neuropatía. En algunos casos, el dolor causado por la quimioterapia puede ser tan extremo que el tratamiento debe detenerse.
