Marijuana Ingredient Can Help Heal Broken Bones


Recommended Posts

Israel -- Scientists in Israel are exploring another medical use for marijuana: Their research indicates that a compound in the plant helps heal bone fractures.

 

The new study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, found that broken bones healed faster and stronger when the patient received the non-psychoactive compound cannabidiol, or CBD.

interesting that they tried cbd and thc together but stuck with cbd only because nonpsycho. i bet the rats with the thc+cbd were healthier, even if the results did not show an increase in bone repair.

 

A number of studies in recent years have demonstrated the medical potential of marijuana. Purified forms of cannabis have been tied to better blood sugar control and may help slow the spread of HIV. A growing body of research suggests CBD may also be effective in reducing inflammation brought on by multiple sclerosis, stopping metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer, killing cancerous cells in people with leukemia and serving as an alternative antipsychotic treatment."The clinical potential of cannabinoid-related compounds is simply undeniable at this point," Gabet said.
wow.

I think there was another study or another article on this study.  It doesn't say that a THC/CBD mixture didn't work better, just that CBD only was effective enough.  I think the combo worked as well or slightly better.

It was the wording from this article that led me to believe that may be the case. 

 

A new study published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research by Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University researchers explores another promising new medical application for marijuana. According to the research, the administration of the non-psychotropic component cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) significantly helps heal bone fractures. The study, conducted on rats with mid-femoral fractures, found that CBD -- even when isolated from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the major psychoactive component of cannabis -- markedly enhanced the healing process of the femora after just eight weeks.

 

It was the even when isolated.  Although I'd have to find the Iron Labs postcard, I thought there were 3-4 cannabinoids that helped with bone growth.  i'm pretty sure that CBC was helpful too.  So I think it worked better with THC although I'd have to get a hold of the study. And probably better with a whole plant extract also.  I thought I read CBD was only therapuetic in a small window extracted and used by itself but leveled off with any dosage size when made with a whole plant extract.

Would you take the risk to help your child? The new documentary “Weediatrics”, explores stories of families at the heart of this issue. These brave parents went on camera to tell their stories, in hope of creating a greater understanding and empathy for desperate families across the country in similar situations. On this episode of Let’s Be Blunt, Montel explores this topic with the films producer, Erin O’Hearn.

      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel speaks with Moriah Barnhart. Moriah founded CannaMoms in 2013 after her daughter Dahlia was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer and she discovered that cannabis provided much needed relief in her daughters care. She is a strong proponent of taking rights to one’s body and health and putting it back into the hands and homes of the patients and their caregivers, and she fights diligently alongside those with the same mission and message for legislative changes on a federal and state level. In 2015, Moriah helped launch Women Grow Tampa Bay, serving as founding chairwoman of the organization aimed at connecting, educating, and empowering women in all segments of the cannabis industry. She also organized large-scale advocacy efforts in support of Amendment 2, the successful 2016 ballot measure that established Florida's medical cannabis program. Moriah currently sits on the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' Hemp Advisory Committee and Consumer Education Subcommittee. Moriah is a founding board member of WISE Florida, The Women's Initiative for a Safe and Equitable Florida, launched by a diverse group of supporters who recognize the harms caused by cannabis prohibition and share a commitment to advancing sensible cannabis policy reform in Florida.
