Recently, I had written an article on Medical Use of cannabis oil. This is a subject that is of great debate and controversy around the world among medical practitioners. But what is medical use? Here are some things to consider:
Pain Management: Can cannabis be used for pain management? This is something that is being discussed more, as time goes by. The advocates of cannabis claim that it can. However, there is no concrete medical evidence proving its efficacy for pain management.
Depression: Is it okay to use it for depression? Some would say yes. Others would say that it is not. However, there are those who believe that it can be a substitute for the more traditional forms of medicine available. It is, after all, often called a weed.
Diabetes: Does it work for diabetes? This is a question that has been debated by experts for years. It has been found to be effective in managing the glucose levels in the blood, but there is no conclusive proof that it can help control blood sugar levels. However, it may be good medicine to give to people with diabetes.
Hair Growth: Can it stimulate hair growth? There are people who say yes, others who will point out that it is extremely dangerous to consume cannabis oil on a regular basis. However, others swear by it as a great medium for growing beautiful and shiny locks. In fact, one common saying that I’ve heard is that it makes women look good. And who isn’t inclined to compliment a woman on her physical attributes anyway?
Dementia: Is it a cure? This is yet another question that is up for debate. Although, many believe it can be used to treat dementia, some studies seem to dispute this. Some doctors however, have said that it can actually slow down the progression of the disease. So cannabis oil can be a useful medicine that can be used to prevent the progress of dementia in old age.
Pain Relief: Is it an alternative form of pain relief? Medical cannabis has been found to be effective when it comes to pain relief. It has also been used to treat menstrual cramps and even to relieve pain brought about by rheumatoid arthritis. It is also effective in treating spasticity, glaucoma and chemotherapy-induced nausea.
As you can see, there are some very positive benefits to the medical use of cannabis. Not everyone agrees with all of its uses though. Some people will warn you off this medicinal plant, saying that it is simply not proper or safe to consume. This argument is generally based on the misconception that cannabis is an illegal drug. If it were legal then everybody would do it. Although, that argument doesn’t hold much water because there are many circumstances in which cannabis can be useful.
So, what is the medical use of cannabis? Well, it can be used for many things. Many people use it as a means of relieving the symptoms of chemotherapy. There are actually two ways to ingest the oil. One way is by ingesting it directly and another way is by applying it to the skin. The latter method is better because it does not have to go through the digestive system.
The second medical use of cannabis oil is to apply it to the skin. The reason this is a good solution for chemotherapy patients is because the cannabis helps to eliminate excess fluid from the body and so make the skin more moisturized. Therefore, it is a very effective way to fight skin cancer.
Cancer: There are also medical benefits of using cannabis. Many scientific studies have been done that show it to be a good anti-tumor and anti-oxidant medicine. It has also shown promise in helping to treat cancer. However, there are no concrete clinical trials on this at this time.
Herbal Medicine: This category includes remedies that fall under natural medicine. These are not clinical drugs. Some examples include herbal nutritional supplements, teas, meditation, etc. They do not go through the same FDA requirements as drugs and are therefore not regulated. However, most are safe and beneficial to the consumer.
