Cannabis Oil Treats Many Medical Conditions

Why does cannabis oil help us with so many different and varying conditions?  When we were at school we all learnt about the human body.  We learnt about the nervous system, the skeletal system, the digestive system… and so on.  But what we didn’t learn about was the one system that rules all other systems…  the endocannabinoid system.  Not only did we not learn about it, medical professionals didn’t learn about it.  Imagine that!  A whole system in the human body that has been under-studied for 50 years.  This was due to the prohibition on cannabis that happened for so long in our history.  

Cannabis oil is a potent medicine.  In fact, until 100 years ago it was used extensively by doctors in treating people.  That knowledge is coming back thanks both to modern medicine and to the relaxation of cannabis laws.

The compounds in cannabis called cannabinoids act as messenger molecules.  They tell the other systems in the human body to calm down – in the case of pain or anxiety for example.  Or, in the case of cancer cells, they tell those cells that it’s time for them to stop dividing and die naturally, in a process called apoptosis (cell death).

Cannabis mimics our own bodies’ molecules – we naturally create our own cannabinoids, and taking cannabis oil naturally adds more medicine into our bodies when we need a little bit of extra care.

Cannabis oil’s first use by Canadian Rick Simpson was for the treatment of Basal Cell Carcinoma – or skin cancer.  Since then, it’s been used successfully to treat an array of different types of cancers.

Pain is the number one reason that people in South Africa use cannabis oil. And, It’s also used to help wean people off of opioids since they can become addictive over time, and less and less effective over time.

Cannabis oil can be used as an effective treatment in managing Alzheimer’s Disease.  A growing body of evidence now exists showing the cannabinoids found in cannabis and in cannabis oil to be neuroprotective.  They delay the onset and development of the disease.
