One company specialized in developing medications based on cannabis has recently invented a revolutionary patch to relieve fibromyalgia and diabetic nerve pain. This implies that cannabis can be viewed differently from now on.
These new drugs will be administered as transdermal patches or adhesive patches. When applied to the skin, these adhesive patches will release some chemicals which enter the bloodstream through the skin. These medications promote relief from neurological nerve pain related to diabetes and fibromyalgia. A controlled dose of this medication on a daily basis won’t cause any side-effects at all.
The company who designed the adhesive patches, Cannabis Science, claims that they will heal any injured part of the body. It is believed that such a method of transdermal drug release is far more effective than any other type of medication such as topical, oral, intramuscular or intravenous.
This is coz this method provides a controlled delivery of the drug into the patient, either through a penetrable membrane which allows the absorption or through embedding thin layers of medication that melt with the body’s heat. These thin layers contain highly potent cannabinoid extract that penetrated the central nervous system thus relieving the pain.
The first cannabinoid that cannabis contains is THC while the second one is CBD. CBD contains potent anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties and provides very few side effects such as the hallucinogenic effect.
According to Mr. Raymond C Dabney from Cannabis Science these two revolutionary adhesive patches are just a tip of an iceberg of what is yet to come for Cannabis Science. he points out that, while we strive to increase the land capacity for growth and produce our own products thus supplying the scientists with materials needed for formulations, we are busy researching more Cannabis related medical uses and methods of their delivery.
Fibromyalgia affects 10% of the people even though a large number is not yet diagnosed. Neuropathic nerve pain also affects a large number of people throughout the world and this revolutionary treatment will limit certain symptoms and even cure these illnesses.
Mr. Dabney states that as more countries legalize the use of cannabis and cannabis-derived medications, Cannabis Science is focused on developing pharmaceutical formulations to supply the huge demand expected in the next few years.
