So far, we are familiar with 85 cannabinoids, and there are endocannabinoid receptors in our digestive and nervous system. They are very meaningful; they are in charge of your appetite, emotions, movement and sleep.
Most of the cannabis studies are based on one of the cannabinoids – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It increases appetite for cancer patients.
Cannabis consists of terpenes, which are very relieving when it comes to pain. Cannabinoids and terpenes have analgesic effect. They reduce inflammation and boost the immune system. They can be injected or used topically.
As reported by scientists, CBD (cannabidiol) from cannabis is in our blood and sticks to cannabinoid receptors, stopping pain signals to get to the brain.
Other non-psychoactive cannabinoid is beta-caryophyllene. It also reduces inflammation and prevents pain.
University of Michigan conducted a study which showed medical cannabis to be helpful with chronic pain, without any side effects.
Experts agree that cannabis is better than ibuprofen, which has been shown by the Université de Montreal, using 215 participants. Not only was the pain gone, but there was also some improvement in their general well-being.

Raymond Dabney, the Cannabis Science CEO says:
“The development of these two new pharmaceutical medicinal applications are just the tip of the iceberg for what we see as the future for Cannabis Science.While we strive to increase our land capacity for growth and facilities to produce our own product to supply our scientists with proprietary materials to make these formulations, we are also busy researching more potential needs for Cannabis related medical applications and developing the methods for delivery of these medications.”
