An important role in maintaining the right balance of the organism
Scientific studies clearly show that endocannabinoids play an important role in maintaining the right balance of the body . In particular, in case of illness, the endocannabinoid system helps the body to feel less pain, to control spasms, to relax, to deal with the discomforts caused by post-traumatic stress, to regulate sleep-wake rhythms and to safeguard the nervous system Delta 8 thc gummies online.
Scientific studies have shown that Cannabis produces cannabinoids, substances capable of interacting with the human endocannabinoid system. This interaction offers interesting opportunities for the treatment of difficult diseases and for the development of new drugs. In other words, the endocannabinoid system has been found to present a set of new potential pharmacological “locks”, which can be opened or closed with the help of natural or synthetic cannabinoids.
Currently, various studies have shown that natural preparations derived from the cannabis plant, in which all the extracted components work in synergy with each other, have a better therapeutic effect than the single intake of the active ingredient. THC and CBD are the cannabinoids considered most important for their pharmacological action and for their therapeutic effects in numerous pathologies , especially in movement disorders, in spasticity related to Multiple Sclerosis, in epilepsy, in neuropathic and migraine pain. .
Recent studies have highlighted the role of cannabis as a neuroprotective (in case of degenerative diseases or in case of trauma), as an appetite stimulant , as a pain reliever, mood enhancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-stress . These beneficial properties of cannabis have been found both in the resin of the plant (particularly rich in cannabinoids), and in the oil obtained from the seeds, rich in essential nutrients, such as Omega 3 and Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and gamma linoleic acid.
Furthermore, new research related to the ability of cannabinoids to stimulate the phenomenon of apoptosis in cancer cells (a form of programmed cell death) is arousing the interest of many patients, doctors, researchers and pharmaceutical companies.
Cannabis: what is the difference between frequent and occasional consumption?
Generally the studies that deal with the presence of such harmful consequences in the long term take into consideration the so-called “heavy” users of this substance, that is, those who use it regularly – at least three times a week – and massive in terms of quantity.
This modality and frequency of use has also been associated with a reduction in scores in cognitive tests for the evaluation of some mental, attentional, planning and decision making functions .
