A lot of case studies has been done every day that cannabis is helping to reduced pain in arthritis and fibromyalgia. Researchers belong to Arthritis Society funded the research to know the logic and truth about the claim and getting the best results
Overview of Arthritis
Swelling of one or more joints and their tenderness are usually known as arthritis. By getting old age these symptoms in the joint pain and stiffness got worse and worse. The most known types of Arthritis that mostly people are suffered from is rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis: In this Arthritis the immune system attacks the joints begins with the lining (synovial membrane) of the joint and results so much pain in muscles and joints
Osteoarthritis: In this Arthritis the cartilage breakdown from the joints. Cartilage is the hardcover at the end of the bones in the joint made of slippery tissue and results so much pain due to breakdown.
Overview of Cannabis
Do you know about the cannabis extraction Process? From the Cannabis plant a drug is extracted, also known as marijuana is used for some medical purposes. The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main component which is found in this cannabis plant. It has a common physical and mental effect which creates a sharp mood, changes the perception and increases hunger.
Cannabis can be more than just a pain reliever in Arthritis?
Around 54 million people is an estimation that is sufferers from arthritis. To find out the real truth about the claim that cannabis is helpful to fight arthritis, Dr. Jason McDougall, a Canadian Scientist also a professor of anesthesia and pharmacology in Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and one of the leading pain researcher in the World; got Strategic Operating Grant from The Arthritis Society to conduct the study consisting on three year time period, in which he needs to study the cannabis and its ability to overhaul arthritic joints effectively.
The major focus of this study is about the arthritis that how we clearly used cannabis medicine that is helpful for reducing pain that is caused by Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. This is so much suppressing if Cannabis can reverse the effects and damages of arthritic. This research is to investigate the therapies which are derived from cannabis.
“To improve the quality of life peoples are best trying to find the effective alternatives for arthritis,” said Janet Yale, the CEO, and president of The Arthritis Society. Further, he said “We need to research about medical cannabis and its use to find the answer the many important questions. Our goal is to give researcher an evidence-based guideline to make treatment recommendations for their patients who are suffered from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and find a best way to give the ability to Canadians that they make choices about their treatment options. This project is an important step to achieving these goals.”
CB2 receptors and Arthritis
To pass through the cell wall CB2 is a molecule that presents inside the cell wall which has an important function that acts as a gatekeeper for the cannabinoids. According to the research of Chinese scientists, by determining CB2 receptors they have a very high concentration for arthritic joints. This phenomenon works like when whole body is normally functioned by using these useful particles and circulates in the body.
In normal conditions, the body has its own ability to produces endocannabinoids that work in a cell by attaching to then through CB2. In the same regular mechanism, the cannabis medicine has a ability to work like that in this situation. This is the phenomenon on which researcher agreed that cannabis is the only effectively treating disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Why Research Supporting the Ability of Cannabis?
When the healing medicine is already present there they can easily heal the damage. So, there are many shreds of evidence to think that if the medicines containing cannabis can be using CB2 receptors to proper inject in the cells then they are reducing the pain signals in the joints that results no pain.
In a B journal of Philosophical transactions of the Royal Society. In which the study shows that for repairing the damaged cells in the body they are triggered by a cannabinoid from some outside source that results the endocannabinoid system of the body releases the antioxidants which are responsible repairing damage cells in a body.
From rheumatoid arthritis symptoms a case study found that how a Maine woman who used the smoothie of cannabis relieved her and proceed towards. Such a case studies can lead us to the justifications that to think deeper into find the all possibilities and treatments that are related to cannabis.
Do you know that the business-related to such drugs are getting in trend? One of the most leading Canada’s leading medical companies named Aphria, Inc. and Peace Naturals Project vowed $100.00 to the Arthritis Society of Dr. McDougall to support their research. It is a good move in the field of research to fund for a good cause and find a great evidence for these invisible illnesses.
Challenges in the Study
We know that cannabinoids receptors are playing an important and crucial role in the propagation and regulation of the immune system in the body that helps to run operating system in the body. In a biological framework, the autoimmune disorder does not make any sense that how and why a body will attack itself and will not repair such damage, the legerdemain.
The McDougall’s team also assist some of the pervious study that these cannabis medicine act on CB2 and reduced the inflammation and pain in the body. This gives the idea that reconstruct the elements and damaged cells an out for the molecules. The study is still going on and everyone is waiting for a better and satisfying result soon and we are also hoping for best…
