A company that was researching the healing power of cannabis came up with a patch that can alleviate fibromyalgia symptoms and diabetic nerve pain. Therefore, cannabis deserves a better reputation than the one it has. The patches alleviate neurological nerve pain and the company’s experts claim that when the doses are controlled, they don’t cause damage to the body or any side effects.
According to Cannabis Science, these patches can heal every affected area in the body. And, transdermal methods, like these patches, are much more effective than oral, topical, intramuscular, and intravenous ones. They can be applied through a penetrable membrane which allows full absorption of thin layers that melt on the skin.
These layers contain potent cannabinoid extract which relieves pain when it reaches the central nervous system. CBD is the second cannabinoid in cannabis and THC is the first. CBD possesses anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties and except the hallucinogenic effect, there are no other side effects.
The company’s CEO, Mr. Raymond C. Dabney said that their product is just a small part of the whole power of Cannabis Science. He further explained that they are researching more potential needs for cannabis-related medical applications and they also work on developing methods for delivery of these medications.
Unfortunately, more than 10% of Americans suffer from fibromyalgia without even knowing about it. The patches may not only relieve pain, but they may also treat these health issues. Since more and more states are legalizing cannabis and cannabis-derived medications, the company focuses on developing pharmaceutical formulations to supply the growing demand that is already happening.
