Cannabis oil may improve blood pressure in children
Health experts say cannabis oil may help improve blood flow to brain, a new study suggests.
The findings, published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, add to the growing body of evidence that suggests cannabis can help treat the condition of hypertension.
In the study, researchers looked at how long blood vessels had to be open for a healthy blood flow before the average patient could benefit from cannabis.
Researchers found that patients who took 10 to 30 milligrams of THC a day for 12 weeks had the greatest improvement in blood flow.
The drug also reduced the time patients needed to wait to receive their first dose of blood pressure medication, and decreased the amount of time they had to wait before getting their second dose of medication.
The study, led by Dr. Daniel R. Fenton of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Cannabis, like other prescription drugs, can have side effects, but this is the first study to report significant improvement in patients’ blood pressure.
Dr. Fessler said he and his team decided to investigate whether cannabis could slow down blood flow because it is commonly used for treating pain.
“It could be beneficial to take a smaller dose, and it could also be beneficial for patients who are having a stroke, stroke patients who have heart disease, stroke survivors who are at high risk,” he said.
“If we can do both of those things, then that is a big improvement.”
The drug works by altering how the brain responds to blood pressure medications, he said, so the body needs to be given more time to react to the drug.
Researchers believe the benefits of cannabis could be particularly important for people with chronic pain or conditions like epilepsy, hypertension, cancer, and autoimmune disorders.
Studies show that cannabis can slow down seizures and reduce seizures, and can help prevent pain from growing and worsening.
The study is based on the results of a clinical trial conducted in the U.K., where the researchers found that treating patients with chronic back pain with cannabis reduced the number of seizures and improved quality of life.
Previous research has shown that cannabinoids can help relieve pain in some conditions, such as pain from arthritis, and reduce nausea and vomiting from cancer.
Dr. John D. Fadiman, a physician and clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, said he believed the results were encouraging.
It’s important to note that there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered, and we still need to study the full effects of cannabis on the brain, he told Medical News Day.
I’m excited that the study has identified a cannabinoid that may have some efficacy, but I am also worried about its long-term safety,” he added.
Many people who suffer from pain will benefit from the drug, but people with epilepsy are at higher risk of developing problems.
Dr Fadimans research group at UCLA has found that cannabinoids like cannabidiol, or CBD, may have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which may be helpful in treating seizures, glaucoma, and inflammatory bowel disease.
He said he would be interested in conducting further research to see if cannabis could help people with conditions like chronic pain.”
It is likely that cannabis will be helpful for some people, and for others it won’t be,” Dr Fadimians added.”
I’m hoping that we’ll be able to find out how cannabis can reduce pain in people with pain.”
“It is likely that cannabis will be helpful for some people, and for others it won’t be,” Dr Fadimians added.
