Medicinal cannabis and epilepsy

Broadly speaking, medicinal cannabis is cannabis prescribed to relieve the symptoms of a medical condition, such as epilepsy. It is important to make the distinction between medicinal cannabis and recreational cannabis. Recreational cannabis is the form of cannabis that people use to get ‘high’. For some people suffering from chronic or terminal illnesses, conventional medicines do not work, or do not work as effectively as medicinal cannabis. Also, for some patients, conventional medicines may work but cause debilitating side effects that cannabis can help to relieve.

In the US, medicinal cannabis is legal, so in fact it is easier than getting it via prescription – but because it is so widely used, it is safer. You can talk to a doctor who will prescribe medicinal cannabis if your put through a proper program.

But there are some things to be aware of if you are considering medicinal use of marijuana. If you are a smoker of tobacco or receive chemicals through the prescription of a physician, you will be classified as having a chemical disorder and be required to take psychiatric drugs. So, don’t expect to be able to use medicinal cannabis from a doctor’s prescription; you will be treated as if you had a chemical deficiency.

So even if you are using medicinal cannabis that has been prescribed by a doctor, you need to remember that you mustn’t smoke it. Smoking raises the risk of lung disease, plus, the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, becomes inactive in a smoker’s body. If you are a non-smoker, don’t expect to be able to take a medicinal dose of marijuana from a doctor’s prescription; you’ll be treated as if you had knocks.

But even more worrisome to those who have been prescribed a medicinal dose of marijuana is the possibility of drug abuse. Never assume that the amount you purchased is an accurate indicator of the amount you need. In most states, it is legal for a Non- Provider Health Care (NPH) Pharmacy to sell medical marijuana, so you may believe that the state has an accurate method of measuring the potency of the drug. But the state maintains no control over the potency of the drug, so if the potency is lower than what is prescribed, you may believe that the amount is less. In other words, you could meet with appointment for a quantity that exceeds petty amounts, or assume that you have simply got a ‘rosis’ (a dissipation symptom) and not a full-blown overdose.

Certainly, there are a number of well-known and widely utilized prevention strategies that health professionals are claiming help reduce incidents of overdose and/or prevent dangerous hemorrhagic (bleeding) episodes from happening.

But, there is good news in the fact that even if you do manage to avoid negative consequences of using marijuana, some of its effects are still being felt. More research is currently ongoing into the pharmacological effects of marijuana and some of those effects are currently being felt in the lab and the clinic; although nobody is yet talking about the possible interventions that might be used to help mitigate them.

But what we do know is that marijuana, as it is now, has articular, which is where the active ingredient of marijuana grows. There are two types of non-psychoactive delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol – Cannabidiol and Tetrahydrocannabinol.

Obviously, there has been a lot of work done into evaluating the pharmacological effects of cannabinoids and these compounds have been used extensively in treating various illnesses. Much of the early work has been incorporated into standard cancer treatments, where the able sauce has been found to be effective in helping cancers such as mouth cancer, and also in treating lymphoma and some head cancers in non-standard ways.

Other research into the pharmacological effects of cannabinoids has revealed that a few of the components found in cannabis, how Chemo-1 helps treat cancer is identical to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) that triggers wound healing.

In fact, a recent study has revealed that when the two compounds, cannabidiol and Tetrahydrocannabinol are administered together in a clinical trial, patients who took 1mg or more had a reduction in their chances of infection, while those taking only 0. minutes had an increase in their chances of infection. Not only that, they also lost more weight.

Whilst tetrahydrocannabinol is known to have beneficial properties in treating cancer with fewer side effects than its partner compounds, when taken in conjunction with its brother, can alleviate nausea and vomiting particularly in the morning.

Regardless of how these compounds work, one thing is certain – they play a major role in how your body absorbs nutrients – from fruits, vegetables, and minerals – that your body then throws out as waste.

In other words – depending on what you eat, what you drink, and how you balance your body’s internal ‘etc’ balance will all have a part to play in how well your body processes what you eat and drinks etc.
