Introduction to Medical Grade Cannabis Oil

Cannabis oil

Cannabis oil is extracted from the cannabis plant and is infused with cannabinoids. Hence, these can include cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

This makes it extremely helpful in treating pain, inflammation, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, appetite issues and muscle spasms. THC is psychoactive, and CBD is anti-psychotic.  Consequently, a blend of more CBD to less THC is non-psychoactive and a beneficial medication.

Medical grade cannabis oil can be taken in the form of capsules, tinctures, oils, suppositories, dermal patches, oral sprays, vaporising oils and edibles.

The Entourage Effect

CBD modulates the psychoactive properties of THC when they are used together to treat things like pain. This is called the entourage effect. It happens when the various compounds and chemicals in the cannabis plant cooperate to create a combined effect.  Hence the effect is greater than their impact when used alone. 

The Entourage Effect can include the other terpenes and cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Terpenes are a large, assorted class of organic compounds. Consequently produced by a variety of plants including the cannabis plant. They work with cannabinoids to have a beneficial effect on human health. 

CBD is not intoxicating and can be used to treat insomnia, anxiety, stress, spasticity, nerve and joint pain. THC is a painkiller, anti-inflammatory and appetite stimulant. Likewise,  it treats nausea and vomiting, anxiety, depression, muscle spasms and nerve pain. 

Cannabinoid medications have been created that are specifically prescribed by doctors for precise health issues. Some of these are called dronabinol and nabilone (capsules) and nabiximol (oral spray).

Body Cannabinoids and the Endocannabinoid System in the Human

Firs of all, cannabinoids are part of a group of various chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors within the human brain. 

Cannabinoids are extracted from the cannabis plant and used to treat a myriad of health conditions. They can be taken orally, rubbed onto the skin, smoked, inhaled, eaten, swallowed or inserted as suppositories. 

Trans-delta -9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid present in the cannabis plant. Another primary cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD) which is not psychoactive but is anti-psychotic. So, when THC and CBD are used together, in a ratio of more CBD to THC, they are incredibly therapeutic. 

Endocannabinoids are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a biological system that moderates several physiological and cognitive processes, contributing to a healthy immune system. For this reason, processes include fertility, appetite, moods, pain sensation, memory and hormones. Endocannabinoids are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptor proteins. These are discharged throughout the central nervous system, brain and peripheral nervous system. 

Cannabis contains at least 113 cannabinoids which trigger the endocannabinoid receptors, especially CB1 and CB2, in various parts of the body.  CBD binds to the CB2 receptors while THC clings to the CB1 receptors. The ECS helps maintain homeostasis in the body and manages several diseases. Furthermore, this explains why taking cannabinoids help to control the disease as they cooperate with the endocannabinoid system, mimicking different endocannabinoids.  

CB1 receptors are found mainly in the liver, brain, intestines and central and peripheral nervous systems and affect memory, pain, stress, appetite and sleep. 

CB2 receptors are found mainly in the immune system and control inflammation and tissue injury.
