Cannabidiol (CBD), the active and non-psychoactive component in Cannabis. CBD when combined with other cannabinoids in the plant has shown to inhibit tumor growth and kill cancer cells in lab tests. Many cancer patients have used medical cannabis to treat their condition, and to suppress its painful and debilitating side effects. In fact, studies have shown that several cancer patients who use medical marijuana do so in place of chemotherapy, or to make the chemotherapy treatment more comfortable for the patient. Rick Simpson oil (RSO) is a known cannabis treatment for cancer. Studies have shown that an RSO at 60mg or more, with equal amounts of THC/CBD has helped kill cancer cells, leaving patients cancer free and in remission.
Medical marijuana contains antispasmodic qualities which relax muscles and has shown to be an effective treatment for seizure disorders. Marijuana oils that are rich in cannabidiol (CBD), are the preferred method of treatment for patients that suffer from seizure disorders. Finding the right doses of CBD and THC to treat patients with seizure disorders depends on each individual’s genetic makeup. What works for one patient is not going to be the same for another. When using medical cannabis to treat for seizure disorders, strains and terpene profiles are extremely important when finding your doses. Studies have proven that cannabis strains high in limonene and lemonal possess anti-epileptic properties as well as a sedative and analgesic effect. Indica strains are higher in CBD with lower levels of THC and have been proven to be especially effective of the treatment of seizure disorders. Charlotte’s Web is a very popular and known strain of medicinal cannabis for seizure disorders and epilepsy. There are extensive studies particularly on children suffering from seizures using the Charlotte’s Web strain. Since it has high concentrations of CBD with low levels of THC makes it optimal for adolescent patients (as well as seizure patients of all ages) who are in desperate need of relief but may not want or be able to handle the psychoactive effects of THC. Once you find the right strain it comes down to every patient’s personal experience with cannabis so that you can Know Your Doses!
