Medical Use of Cannabidiol
Cannabidiol, CBD or olje Norge is one of the many names given to a group of cannabidiol-rich herbs that are used to treat debilitating neurological disorders such as seizures, glaucoma, and chronic pain. Cannabidiol has been shown to relieve pain by reducing inflammation, slowing the muscle response times of certain muscle groups, and increasing neurorestoration in the brain. It has been found to be effective in a wide range of experimental model systems, including models of multiple sclerosis, chemotherapy, and traumatic brain injury. In some cases, it is even considered to substitute the painful and often toxic pharmaceutical drugs used to treat these disorders.
Recently, CBD has gained approval for treatment in children with intractable epilepsy. However, in human studies, CBD has only been found to be effective when it is administered alone. The lack of positive results in trials with multiple sclerosis patients led the US FDA to withdraw CBD from the market as of July 2021. In addition, the CBD oil is scheduled to be the subject of another clinical trial in the next year or two.
The potential benefits of CBD for treating common inflammatory skin diseases such as acne are not well known. However, in the last decade, there have been a number of controlled human studies involving the use of CBD for treating a variety of skin conditions including acne. The most recent of these studies focused on the effect of CBD on patients with moderate to severe acne who were not responding to conventional therapies. The participants in this study, which was published in the June 2021 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, were divided into three groups: those using CBD oil, those using a placebo, and those receiving standard medical care. In general, the participants showed improvement from the beginning to the end of the three-month trial, although the improvements were not significant in all areas.
One of the main reasons why CBD may be beneficial in the treatment of a variety of health problems is its anti-inflammatory properties. One of the most common complaints associated with advanced-stage chronic pain is pain sensitive pressure points in the muscles of the back and neck. In the study, participants reported significantly less pain at their back and neck when they were administered doses of CBD oil over a three-month period compared to the placebo group. While this preliminary evidence seems promising, more research is needed to confirm that CBD can provide relief from pain and inflammation in people with chronic pain.
Another area where more evidence is growing in regard to CBD’s potential to treat common inflammatory conditions is in Alzheimer’s disease. As you probably know, multiple sclerosis is a very common condition among elderly individuals. Multiple sclerosis is characterized by signs and symptoms of inflammation in the brain, mainly in the central nervous system. Some evidence suggests that chronic inflammation may play a role in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. In an Alzheimer’s Disease patient, the brain cells of the inflammatory condition show increased sensitivity to pain. This may be a cause of the decline seen in cognitive function that so many patients with Alzheimer’s experience.
At the present time, it appears that there is still much more evidence to be generated when it comes to CBD oil and medical use. Currently, it is illegal to sell CBD oil or CBD-derived products in any state in the United States without a valid medical purpose. However, since CBD is becoming more popular, more CBD-based products are being sold in states that have legalized medical use of the drug. While the government has not yet approved CBD oil as medicine, there are a number of companies marketing CBD products for medical use in Europe and throughout the world.
