Title: A Detailed Look at CBD’s Effectiveness in Treating Neurological Disorders

A Detailed Look at CBDs Effectiveness in
Treating Neurological Disorders
Presented By cbdmyth.com
2
Neurology and CBD
3
  • In the present Power Point Presentation, well
    discuss CBDs effectiveness in treating
    neurological disorders.
  • Medical practitioners from various parts of the
    world are now using cannabis extract to cure
    neurological problems and resulting pain and
    inflammation. And so far, there have been many
    success stories.

4
Nature of studies conducted
  • Before we start our discussion, heres a synopsis
    of the studies conducted and the takeaways
    gleaned from them, presented in bulleted points
    below
  • The studies were conducted by groups of health
    professionals. Some were privately sponsored,
    some were groups of esteemed neurologists and
    some were affiliated by the government.

5
  • A plethora of disorders, all treated by CBD were
    studied, including seizures, huntington disease,
    cervical dystonia, multiple sclerosis, parkinson
    disease, tourette syndrome, epilepsy.
  • Both medically approved and non-medical marijuana
    consumption methods were reviewed. Pills like
    oral cannabis extract (ORE), Nabiximols, etc were
    studied alongside smoking or vaping cannabis.

6
  • The evidence from these studies revealed both THC
    and CBD are effective in the treatment of
    neurological diseases, though in varying degrees.

7
Findings, in a nutshell
  • The findings were quite interesting. From the
    studies, it appears the scarier the disease, the
    better the relief. For example, multiple
    sclerosis (MS) patients uniformly complain about
    pain, which sometimes become excruciating. Oral
    CBD extracts have been found to alley the pain,
    arising from MS.

8
  • Synthetic THC has been reported to reduce the
    symptoms of spasticity, especially the pain that
    people unfortunate enough to have to deal with
    this disease bear. The study shows a short-term
    use of CBD and THC and a mixture of them can
    alleviate pain whereas for complete cure,
    long-term use is preferred.

9
The science behind it
  • Research on medical cannabis has made significant
    strides lately. The previous consensus was CBD
    directly binds to a group of endocannabinoid
    receptors. But recent studies found that CBD
    interacts with the endocannabinoid system only in
    vitro at supraphysiological concentrations. This
    has prompted scientists to understand its
    molecular targets better. They believe the answer
    to how CBD cures neurological disorders lies in
    its molecules.

10
  • The molecular targets that have so far been
    identified encompass a number of ion channels,
    transporters, enzymes and receptors. The most
    interesting about these studies is the wayward
    behavior of the targets.
  • Because of volatile behavior of CBDs molecular
    targets, its difficult for scientists to
    determine whether CBD usage and recovery from
    neurological problems are linked or simply
    correlated. Luckily for them, some targets were
    totally consistent with the results of previous
    clinically controlled neurological treatment.

11
  •  Its safe to assume that theres a causative
    relation between CBDs molecular targets and
    recovery from neurological disorders. With the
    progress of ongoing scientific research, this
    relation will be explored.

12
The brain benefits
  • The brain is probably the most important area of
    the central nervous system. CBDs impact on brain
    and the consequences are all well-documented. The
    way CBD acts upon the brain speeds up the
    recovery from neurological problems.

13
  • Heres how it happens

14
  • CBD acts upon the 5-HT1A receptor. This receptor
    is known as the serotonin receptor. Its one of
    very few receptors which CBD actively stimulates.
    According to studies, some serotonin receptor
    agonists and antagonists provide neuroprotection.
    One such agonist is flibanserin. CBD releases
    cannabinoid receptor agonists, which work as
    proxies for serotonin drugs.

15
  • CBD also activates the opioid receptor.

The benefits?
Pain and nonstop inflammation are both
significantly reduced. Neurological diseases,
especially the ones involving the spine are
accompanied by pain.
16
What the law says?
  • Cannabis is undoubtedly effective against
    neurological problems.
  • There are 21 states other than Washington DC
    where the consumption of medical marijuana is
    allowed.

But dont get excited already.
Not all states permit you to consume it.
17
  • If you are thinking you can buy medical marijuana
    from the nearest drug house because you live in
    one of the 21 states, you are wrong. In the
    United States, medical marijuana is FDA
    controlled. FDA approved medical marijuana drugs
    are dronabinol and nabilone.

18
  • Fortunately, some pill is not FDA approved only
    means a licensed health practitioner will not
    prescribe you that medicine. You can still get
    it. Some states approve the sale of cannabis
    products that are high in CBD and low in THC. You
    can buy these products. They are unlikely to be
    available in drugstores. So buy online.

19
Caution about side-effects
  • Cannabis users, especially those who want to
    recover from neurological diseases must be
    cautious. Clinical trials reveal cannabis usage
    come with a number of side-effects, including
    dizziness, nausea and vomiting. These
    side-effects may prove fatal for anyone suffering
    from nerve disorders.
  • CBD products is far safer in this regard. Thats
    chiefly because they have an optimal ratio of CBD
    and THC, making it safe to use and highly
    effective.

20
Summing up
  • The anecdotal and clinical evidence all confirm
    that CBD is useful for neurological patients.
    Contemporary scientific research echo this
    sentiment but has so far been unable to pin on
    all the factors, responsible for treating neuro
    problems. Hopefully, future research will shed
    enough light on it.
