You ask, “What is medical cannabis oil and why has it been legalised?” We answer with an article based on research and anecdotal evidence.
Medical Cannabis Oil is an Ancient Remedy
Cannabis Therapy calls it medical cannabis oil today and we use it to treat your pain – and any other issues you may have. Centuries ago, they called it marijuana. They did not have to mention the word medical as the plant was their doctor.
People have used marijuana or cannabis for thousands of years as herbal medicine, to treat all kinds of conditions and diseases. Cannabis comprises hundreds of cannabinoids. They are from a plant so are called phytocannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in the plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another primary ingredient. THC and CBD can both be used to treat your pain and inflammation. But CBD is better as it does not make you high like THC can.
Medical Cannabis Oil has Been Legalised – in Some Places
Cannabis oil has been legalised in some countries. CBD is legal in most countries because it is a harmless yet powerful natural remedy. THC is banned in most countries as it is psychoactive. It is sad because this is also a very effective pain killer and fighter of disease.
All around the world, people use cannabis oil for health and medical issues. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory. Studies are showing that cannabinoids can vary the degree of pain by hindering the transmission of neurons in pain pathways to the brain. Medical cannabis oil can treat your pain by relieving your inflammation. It changes the way your brain reads the pain.
Medical Cannabis Oil Treats Pain
Patients who took CBD had less pain. Those who took THC slept better and experienced far less pain too. Looking at the causes of pain is interesting – chronic pain can be a result of damage to tissues or inflammation of tissues OR it can be the result of injury to the nervous system or something not operating correctly in the nervous system. Every person responds differently to pain and every person responds differently to medical cannabis oil when they want to treat their pain.
Use a medical cannabis oil to treat your pain – it is a useful pain killer. It works with the body’s innate endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is responsible for the maintenance of pain and health. The ECS allows endocannabinoid transmitters (chemicals in the brain) to help your body to react to harmful stimuli and to ease pain and inflammation.
The brain produces more endocannabinoids when the body is injured to manage the pain. When the patient takes cannabis oil, these cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoids to relieve the pain. Medical cannabis oil can therefore be used in many forms to treat pain – tinctures, capsules, oils, edibles, creams,vape oils and suppositories. Patients choose the method that suits their illnesses and these range from muscular injuries to arthritis, fybromyalgia and much more.
Medical Cannabis Oil is Harmless and Healing
Many people are resorting to pain killers or opioids and many are getting addicted to these conventional drugs. So much so that the opioids are killing them. More people are turning to medical cannabis oil to treat their pain. There is increasing quality evidence that cannabis oil does work and it can be used by the medical profession as a medicinal therapy in countries where cannabis is legal. Medical cannabis oil is far safer to use than opioids and has no side effects. People suffering pain who resorted to medical cannabis oil were able to stop their use of opioids and to enjoy a far better quality of life.
