Topical cannabis is effective for skin conditions

Topical cannabis is effective for skin conditions

I can say that I have personally seen amazing results with patients using topical cannabis for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and poison ivy rashes and more.  Here is some new scientific data supporting what we already see is true clinically, namely that cannabis topicals can provide low toxic relief to patients with both chronic and acute skin conditions.  -Dr. Jake Felice

From TheJointBlog

A new study, recently published online in the British Journal of Pharmacology, details how cannabinoids can play a role in the treatment of skin diseases.

Researchers looked at the impact of phytocannabinoids (plant-derived cannabinoids, rather than synthetic counterparts) on epigenetic regulation of skin differentiation genes.

The study found that both cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG), “significantly reduced the expression of all genes tested via increased DNA methylation for keratin 10 gene”.

The CBD was found to reduce keratin 10 mRNA through stimulating type-1 cannabinoid (CB1) receptors, while the CBG was found to act through a secondary method that did not engage the CB1 or CB2 receptors of keratinocytes (HaCaT cells). It was also revealed that cannabidiol increased global DNA methylation levels.

The study concludes that cannabis could act as a primary treatment for epidermal ailments:

“These findings identify the phytocannabinoids cannabidiol and cannabigerol as transcriptional repressors that can control cell proliferation and differentiation, suggesting (especially for cannabidiol) a possible exploitation as lead compounds to be used in the development of novel therapeutics for skin diseases.”

This report was conducted by researchers at the University of Teramo, the Campus Bio-Medico University and the Santa Lucia Foundation, all located in Italy.

Cannabis and CBD provide low toxic protection from seizures

Cannabis and CBD provide low toxic protection from seizures

Does cannabis help patients with seizures?  You bet it does!  And it frequently helps at concentrations that are so low that the cannabis that doesn’t give patients a head high.  Here is a 40-year list of peer reviewed scientific articles from 2013 back to 1973 showing the protective benefits of low toxic cannabis and CBD.

Cannabis is by far the least toxic medicine available and has the best side-effect profile of all medicines that benefit seizures.

How to never get busted…

How to never get busted…

It’s really not legal until we can all grow it for ourselves.  If you’re not from a “licensed” state you have even less protection than we do here in the great state of Washington where unless one has a medical authorization it is still illegal for adults to grow their own.

Barry Cooper is a really cool guy and former narcotics officer who teaches you how not to get busted in this video.  He let’s us in on some of the tricks of the trade officers use to arrest people.  This could mean you, so watch Barry teach his craft, and share with your friends and family.  -Dr. Jake FeliceCannabisMatrix.com
