Medicinal Cannabis Treatment Objectives

Medicinal cannabis has been a topic of debate for some time now. With such a rich history that dates back over 2,000 years ago, medicinal cannabis is one of the oldest known treatments derived from nature for healing the sick and injured. It has been around almost as long as the human race., relieving pain both physically and emotionally to the likes of Chinese Emperors, Royalty, Presidents of the United States., alongside references made in the Bible. It is no surprise., through scientific and technological advancement., we have gained the ability to understand the cannabis plant, its constituents.,not all of which produce psychotropic effects and the powerful healing capabilities they each present. With the capability to improve your health dramatically., patients suffering a diminished quality of life due to disease can qualify for medicinal cannabis treatment at Australia’s trusted source for pharmaceutical grade cannabinoid medicine.

The power of medicinal cannabis treatment is within its activation of the Endocannabinoid System. Each human being has this regulatory system within them, with receptors located throughout the brain and immune system. Its there for a reason. To keep the body in homeostasis. When the endocannabinoid system is activated with consistency, the body is able to locate the source of disease and inflammation within the body and make the necessary adjustments to bring it back to good health. Since every disease is different, the mechanism of action in dealing with the disease will differ – but the pursuit of homeostasis is the same across the board.

Medicinal cannabis is ultimately changing the way doctors treat disease. It is apparent on a worldwide scale, the growth of which is quite rapid as more and more research and patient testimonials are published and publicised. The medicinal cannabis treatment objectives are impressive and bring hope to those suffering from such ailments.

The therapeutic effects of medicinal cannabis treatment

ADHD

ADHD Treatment

Cannabinoid therapy has been shown to improve mood and anxiety as well as curtail hyperactivity in those patients trying to effectively manage their ADHD symptoms. Specifically, Cannabidiol (CBD) has anxiolytic and neuromodulatory properties which are thought to provide symptomatic relief from ADHD.

ADHD/ADD Treatment

AIDS / HIV

AIDS Treatment

The cannabinoid profile identifies properties within medicinal cannabis that can assist with the wasting symptoms of nausea, appetite loss, pain, and anxiety experienced by HIV and AIDs patients. Although some AIDs / HIV medications are effective in minimising these symptoms, they are not equally effective in all patients.

AIDS / HIV Treatment

ALS

ALS Treatment

ALS is a neurodegenerative disease also known amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The endocannabinoid system has been implicated in both relieving symptoms of ALS and possibly slowing disease progression of ALS patients. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a potent antioxidant of medicinal cannabis and has been shown to mediate the bodies inflammatory response, both these properties are desirable to treat ALS.

ALS / MND Treatment

ALZHEIMERS DISEASE

The neuroprotective properties of the endocannabinoid system have been implicated in the reduction of plaque proteins found in Alzheimer’s patients. Additionally improvement in mood and reduction in anxiety from medicinal cannabis are attributed to a better quality of life.
Alzheimers Treatment

ANOREXIA

A 3 year clinical study has confirmed results regarding THC and its ability to help patients with anorexia nervosa gain weight. The findings were released in the International Journal of Eating Disorders. Patients admitted with severe anorexia at the Odense University in Denmark were given synthetic THC pills (dronabinol).
Anorexia Treatment

ANXIETY

Medicinal cannabis constituent CBD mimics natural serotonin to bind to some of the same receptors, most importantly the 5HT1A receptor to improve mood and reduce anxiety and depression.
Anxiety Treatment

ARTHRITIS

In addition to reducing the painful inflammatory symptoms of osteoarthritis, medicinal cannabis activation of the endocannabinoid system has also been implicated in the bone remodeling process as has been suggested to prevent abnormal bone growth.

The painful inflammatory symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are caused by an overactive immune response. Cannabinoids have been shown to produce analgesia to treat RA symptomatically, additionally CBD is a potent anti-inflammatory that acts to treat the underlying problem.

Arthritis Treatment

ASTHMA

Published in the British Journal of Pharmacology, a study shows cannabis may have the same effect on the airways as popular asthma medications on the market. French researchers identified THC, a constituent of medicinal cannabis as having the capability to block muscle contractions caused by a signaling molecule called acetycholine. Acetycholine maintains the muscle tone of the airways and delivers the contractions experienced in an asthma attack. THC works by preventing acetylcholine from being released.
Asthma Treatment

AUTISM

Newer studies have found that the active ingredients in medicinal cannabis, “cannabinoids”., are indicated in the treatment of autism-linked mutations as well as Fragile-X syndrome. The endocannabinoid system has been found to be disrupted in those suffering from autism. Cannabinoids are capable of helping the system correct itself.
Autism Treatment

CANCER

There is substantial preclinical data to suggest CBD has potent effects against the spread and proliferation of cancerous cells.  The endocannabinoid system is known to control cell death and reduce the ability of cancer cells to metastasize. Cannabinoids extracted from medicinal cannabis are also useful for symptomatic relief of nausea, poor sleep, pain and weight loss due to chemotherapy.
Cancer Treatment

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE

Published in the journal Pharmacological Research, it has been discovered that cannabinoids extracted from medicinal cannabis affect blood vessels by causing them to relax and widen. Relaxation of the blood vessels is known to lower blood pressure and improve circulation.
Cardiovascular Disease Treatment

COLITIS / CROHN’S DISEASE

Cannabinoid therapy has been shown to treat the underlying inflammation causing Crohn’s and Colitis. Furthermore pain, nausea and motility are all modulated by the endocannabinoid system.
Crohn’s / Colitis Treatment

COPD

Researchers from Brazil and Germany published in the open-access journal PLOS One, results of a study regarding cannabinoids and COPD. Researchers successfully protected mice from acute lung injury through increasing levels of 2AG. One of the body’s own cannabinoids, the increase in 2-Arachidonoylglycerol consequently produced anti-inflammatory effects in a murine model of LPS (lipopolysaccharide)-induced ALI (acute lung injury). By activating cannabinoids receptors, the scientists were also successful at controlling the overactivity of the immune system. This is an underlying factor in a wide range of inflammatory diseases.
COPD Treatment

DIABETES

Diabetics generally exhibit varying levels of painful neuropathy caused by oxidative stress. Cannabidiol is a potent antioxidant derived from medicinal cannabis and capable of reducing oxidative stress which may help to prevent further nerve damage. Additionally cannabinoid receptors are densely populated through the CNS and have been shown produce analgesia in many studies.
Diabetes Treatment

ENDOCRINE DISORDERS

CB1 receptor is expressed in the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, and its activation is known to modulate all the endocrine hypothalamic-peripheral endocrine axes. An increasing amount of data highlights the role of the system in the stress response by influencing the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and in the control of reproduction by modifying gonadotropin release, fertility, and sexual behavior. Medicinal cannabis and the endocannabinoid system controls appetite, food intake, and energy balance. It has recently received great attention, particularly in the light of the different modes of action underlying these functions. The endocannabinoid system modulates rewarding properties of food by acting at specific mesolimbic areas in the brain. In the hypothalamus, CB1 receptor and endocannabinoids are integrated components of the networks controlling appetite and food intake. Interestingly, the endocannabinoid system was recently shown to control metabolic functions by acting on peripheral tissues, such as adipocytes, hepatocytes, the gastrointestinal tract, and, possibly, skeletal muscle. The relevance of the system is further strenghtened by the notion that drugs interfering with the activity of the endocannabinoid system are considered as promising candidates for the treatment of various diseases, including obesity.
Endocrine Disorders Treatment

EPILEPSY

While the anticonvulsant mechanism of cannabinoid therapy is poorly understood there is overwhelming anecdotal and growing clinical evidence to support its use with epileptic patients. Additionally medicinal cannabis and the CBD compound has been shown to improve mood and sleep as well as reduce anxiety resulting in a better quality of life.
Epilepsy / Seizure Treatment

FIBROMYALGIA

Medicinal cannabis is far more effective at treating symptoms of fibromyalgia than any of the three prescription drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat the disorder. That is one of the surprise findings in an online survey of over 1,300 fibromyalgia patients conducted by the National Pain Foundation and National Pain Report.
Fibromyalgia Treatment

IBD

Cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) are found in the nervous system. This includes the enteric nervous system which has some part in controlling the function of the gut. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) activated by medicinal cannabis has been studied and found to be essential in maintaining proper gut motility, sensation, and inflammation.
IBD Treatment

INFLAMMATION

As a natural anti-inflammatory, CBD oil has great potential to help an array of symptoms caused by inflammation in the body.

INSOMNIA

While the mechanism of cannabinoids sedative effects is poorly understood there is overwhelming evidence implicating the endocannabinoid system in sleep modulation.
Insomnia

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of cannabinoids are thought to improve remyelination by protecting repair cells and reducing the inflammatory response. Symptoms such as poor sleep, spasticity and pain have been reported to improve with medicinal cannabis.
Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

NAUSEA

Cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system have been implicated in mediating emesis through the release of neurotransmitters particularly serotonin. Cannabidiol acts to reduce the binding affinity of serotonin to the CTZ (brain center that initiates vomiting) as well as inhibiting the release of newly synthesized serotonin release.
Nausea Treatment

NEUROPATHIC PAIN

Cannabinoid receptors are densely populated throughout the bodies own analgesic pathway. The ECS controls the descending antinociceptive pathway via brain centers, particularly the RVM and PAG. Excitation of the RVM or PAG releases inhibitory neurotransmitters into the dorsal horn synapse. Cannabinoid receptors are densely populated throughout the RVM and PAG suggesting the ECS is paramount in controlling pain.
Neuropathic Pain Treatment

OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)

In studies, CBD – a highly therapeutic constituent of medicinal cannabis, managed to reverse the obsessive-compulsive behaviour. The research team tested the CBD on rats that were treated with the drug mCPP. mCPP was a drug they used to activate the symptoms of OCD. Even at a very low dose, the CBD managed to reverse the OCD symptoms.

OSTEOPOROSIS

Abnormalities in the bone remodeling cycle, particularly an imbalance in the ratio of bone forming to bone mineralizing cells is thought to cause osteoporosis. The endocannabinoid system activated through medicinal cannabis treatment acts to maintain homeostasis and balance the bone cycle.
Osteoporosis Treatment

PARKINSON’S DISEASE

Parkinsons Disease Treatment

Observational studies show that medicinal cannabis has the ability to relieve motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Motor symptoms have been at the centre of these studies, as they constitute the most visible and most debilitating disorders in relation with Parkinson’s disease. As early as the eighties, cannabinoids have been shown to alleviate dystonia, dyskinesia, and akinesia, all of them motor symptoms which have been known to impact certain Parkinson’s patients. Research focusing on the degeneration of brain cells and its resulting impact on cognitive capacities – which is the origin of the aforementioned motor symptoms – has also been relatively active, with a few breakthrough studies published during the previous decade. The neuroprotective properties of cannabinoids had already been proven on many occasions, and the impact it could have on Parkinson’s disease was confirmed as well.

Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER – PTSD

PTSD Treatment

Researchers found that people with PTSD had low levels of anandamide, an endogenous cannabinoid compound.  Innate to all mammals, anandamide triggers the same receptors that are activated by THC and other cannabinoids. PTSD can be treated in two ways. First is by addressing the endocannabinoid deficiency. When the body stops manufacturing adequate amounts of endocannabinoids to fill receptor sites, the cannabinoids found in medicinal cannabis play a therapeutic role by replenishing these missing endocannabinoids. Researchers believe the cannabinoids have the capability of bringing PTSD patients relief from their memories in this manner.

PTSD Treatment

Other ailments found to be treated by medicinal cannabis include:

ASD/ASPERGERS SYNDROME, BRAIN DAMAGE / NEURODEGENERATION, CEREBRAL PALSY, GLAUCOMA, KIDNEY DISEASE, LEUKEMIA, LIVER DISEASE, METABOLIC SYNDROME, MIGRAINE, MOOD DISORDERS AND OBESITY.
