Many experts believe that smoking is the least effective method of use cannabis as medicine. In fact, its therapeutic power can be seen magnified when the essential oil from the cannabis plant occurs. These oils are basically concentrates obtained dry plant by various extraction methods. We speak of a substance that, unlike other extractions need combustion (dabs, shatters …), orally consumed and have potent therapeutic effects to combat numerous diseases such as cancer and especially epilepsy.
The high content in CBD being made with these oils (and low or no THC) makes even children and newborn babies can use it as a drug for treatments. This way of consuming marijuana is changing the lives of many patients, so its use has become a goal for many patient’s associations and success for many others.
Usually specific plants are grown for making these oils, the level of each of its components is controlled and manipulated to achieve the proper amount according to the patient need. The oil is usually filled into capsules or small plastic containers (like many other drugs) to be ingested directly or mixed with food. Experts recommend not to abuse because, although its effects are slow to appear, they are very powerful. It is best to be patient with the dose.
Another of the most common and effective ways of applying the topical cannabis. Creams, ointments and other ointments transdermal act quickly on skin, muscles and bones. Since ancient mystics and shamans have used it to relieve all sorts of aches and bumps and so do today physiotherapists themselves. They are composed of a fat-absorbing base lot of resin and ‘manufactured’ by extraction with solvent marijuana.
The product obtained is usually mixed with beeswax and other substances that give different consistencies depending on the result to be obtained. This type of cannabis derivative, in all its forms (creams, ointments, etc.), has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, so it is usually in high demand by people with arthritis, osteoarthritis, lower back problems, psoriasis and tendinitis.
If anything characterizes cannabinoids found in marijuana is non soluble in water, but in fats and organic solvents. Precisely this makes applied, they can be absorbed much better than any other substance. In addition, skin receptors are abundant of the endocannabinoid system, so that they will act with them effectively and improving the health status of the patient. It is only necessary to apply the product on the affected area with the help of small scrubs, for a period of between 30 and 60 seconds.
