What are the Benefits of Medical Cannabis Uses?

Apr 2, 2022 Medical Cannabis

Over the last 50 years tremendous progress has been made in medical cannabis uses. This has led some of the most developed nations in the world to: systematically begin embracing medicinal marijuana in their mainstream healthcare systems.

 Currently rigorous research and testing is ongoing in this area. However, in this article, I will highlight the major benefits of: the most resourceful scientifically approved  synthetic medical extracts of marijuana in use today in mainstream medical field.

Management of Pain and Sleep

Apparently the cannabis sativa plant is made up of close to 100 different chemicals. However scientist have narrowed down on two major  chemicals for Medical cannabis uses. One is known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the other cannabidiol (CBD). The later has been successfully used in reducing pain in patients suffering from varied diseases. This is  attained by changing or modifying the pathways of the pain preceptors to the brain. This has come in handy for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy by substantially reducing the excruciating pain associated with this medical process.

 It has also  been successful  in minimizing pain in patients suffering from degenerative diseases such as: Rheumatoid arthritis, as well as Alzheimer’s. 

On the other hand the relieving of pain has had an important added benefit. It actually helps trigger relaxation of the patients in turn suppressing insomnia, and eventually leading to better sleep which is essential for cell regeneration and healing.

Reduction of Inflammation

When the human body detects viruses, harmful bacteria or gets injured. The brain triggers a release of inflammatory cells. This cells enmesh and destroy the harmful pathogens or initiate the healing process of the injured areas. On the flip side, excessive and continual release of  inflammatory cells especially when not needed is harmful. If left unchecked for a prolonged period: it may lead to a number of ramifications which include cell mutation a precursor to growth of cancer. Other major diseases which are associated with negative inflammation include: Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome(IBS) and rheumatoid arthritis. The two aforementioned extracts of marijuana (THC and CBD) are combined to create a synthetic drug for treating such diseases. Not only does this drug reduce inflammation but it also substantially mitigates the harmful effects of inflammation on a patient’s overall health. Arguably this is considered one of the most resourceful benefit of medical cannabis use so far.

Mitigating Neurological, Mental Disorders, and Boosting Appetite

Some chemicals in medicinal marijuana are identical to chemicals our body produces. They are involved in boosting memory, aiding movement, and increasing appetite. Medical cannabis uses has made remarkable improvement in management of severe neurological and mental disorders. 

A unique case is in the treatment of two severe forms of epilepsy namely: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome;  and the Dravet syndrome (that affects children). Medicinal marijuana has also been successfully used to reduce tremors in patients with Parkinson’s disease. Veteran soldiers suffering from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and patients suffering from ADHD (attention deficient hyperactive disorder) have shown tremendous improvements through use of drugs wholly manufactured from the two active marijuana extracts. Finally but not least the dual cannabis extracts have also been used to create a drug for boosting appetite in anorexic patients. 

Without a shred of doubt the ineffable success stories of medicinal marijuana are awe inspiring. However, major players in the medical field unanimously hold the view that: more systematic and sustained research needs to be done. To ensure all concerned stakeholders are conversant with both the negative and positive aspects of marijuana for medicinal purposes. As a results cannabis synthetic drug use for medicinal purposes will be appropriately manufactured and administered for the overall benefit of the global population. Last but not least policy makers will also come up with informed policies for systematic implementation globally.
