37% of Millenials and 25% of Gen Xers say they have used cannabinoids to help relieve pain.
Classical music exposure paired with ibuprofen reduced response to inflammation pain by 93%, compared to exposure to the medication alone in mouse models of pain. For those exposed to just music, researchers report a 77% reduction in surgical pain.
Brain and fetal development damage caused by exposure to CBD and THC are very similar defects seen in fetal alcohol syndrome.
Researchers provide further evidence that the cannabis compound, CBD, is effective at reducing seizures in people with epilepsy. The new study reveals CBD significantly reduced seizures in people with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Previously, the researchers demonstrated CBD was effective at seizure control in Dravet syndrome.
During memory tasks, people with psychosis have different patterns of activity in the prefrontal and mediotemporal brain areas compared to those without the disorder. When exposed to cannabidiol (CBD), the activity of the brain areas became more like those seen in the controls for people with psychosis. Patients reported a decrease in symptoms of psychosis following one dose of CBD. Researchers stress that no definitive conclusions could be made about the effectiveness of CBD use over a sustained period.
Eating a high-fat diet can help with the absorption of oral CBD for those with epilepsy. Previous studies have linked CBD to helping manage seizures associated with epilepsy.
More than 80% of parents reported significant or moderate improvements in their child's ASD symptoms following medical cannabis treatment, a new study reports.
A new study reports cannabidiol, a marijuana derivative, is effective at reducing seizure frequency in children and adults with treatment resistant epilepsy.
CBD reduces craving and anxiety in those with heroin use disorder during withdrawal from the drug. There were no serious adverse reactions, or impairments to cognition noted with the administration of CBD. Researchers suggest cannabidiol may be useful in helping to combat opioid addiction.
CBD blocks the ability of THC to overstimulate the ERK pathway in the hippocampus, preventing negative side effects associated with cannabis use.
