Research confirms more medical benefits of cannabis

medical benefits of cannabis

Various researches have shown that multiple medical benefits of cannabis to be true. One particular research talked about its link with treating cancer. This role of cannabis is due to FBL-03G. FBL-03G is a chemical found in cannabis plants. And it is known to have anti-inflammatory effects in the body.

 A flavonoid derivative in cannabis can kill tumor cells

In the last few years, many countries have given their natives access to the cannabis plant. Due to this, cannabis has become a major point of discussion all over the world. According to international guidelines, cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug.

Despite this fact, many countries of the world have already made it legal to use this plant. Primarily most of the countries have made this plant legal for its medical use. But, Canada and some parts of the U.S. have made cannabis legal for both medical and recreational use.

Cannabis can play a role in treating chronic conditions like cancer, epilepsy, and severe pain. And the researchers believe that cannabis has many other medical uses and can treat various diseases. But in the case of many therapies, the regulators haven’t approved the use of this plant for the lack of clinical trials on a large scale.

With an increase in the helpful clinical trials, regulators may reconsider the rules related to cannabis. A recent study has found that medical cannabis may cure pancreatic cancer. In the U.S., pancreatic cancer covers 3% of all cancer cases. But due to the one-year survival rate of only 20%, it can become a second major cause of cancer deaths by 2020.

Cannabis can be effective in cancer therapy due to the presence of FBL-03G in it. That is a derivative of flavonoids and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. The research team has noted that the use of flavonoids to treat pancreatic tumors can kill cancer cells. Recent data has shown that by 2023, the global cannabis market can increase from USD 10.3 billion (in 2018) to USD 39.4 billion at a CAGR of 30.7%.

Medical cannabis can avoid the need for multiple drugs

Recently, cannabis has become an effective choice to treat patients with cancer. Cannabis can mainly reduce pain caused by radiation therapy or chemotherapy. But this plant can also stimulate appetite and treat nausea in patients.

The multiple uses of the plant have made it an appealing option for curing cancer. Medical cannabis may also be a better option to cure pancreatic cancer. The use of cannabis can avoid the need for multiple drugs. For example, a cancer patient going through chemotherapy is likely to take opioids to reduce his or her pain.

The patient may also use drugs like Dolasetron or Aprepitant to treat nausea. And Megestrol or Dronabinol to stimulate the appetite. By taking cannabis, one can decrease the number of drugs that a patient needs (from three to just one) to treat his/her condition.

But with the frequent use, there are more chances that the patient will become tolerant of cannabis. And they will either need to ingest more cannabis or to increase its frequency.

As a result, the cultivators of craft cannabis are trying to provide patients with high-quality and more potent cannabis. And in the future, continuous trials on the benefits of medical cannabis may lead to an increase in interest and growth of the medical market.
