MEDICAL MARIJUANA & SPINAL INJURY
“Demonstrated benefits and the clinical potential of Marijuana-related elements (found in Medical Marijuana) for spinal injury and neurological issues is simply undeniable.” – Dr. Gabet M.D.
Even minor spinal injury can cause a temporary loss of strength in the body area it services. The pain can be horrific all the way from spine to the tips of the fingers. Spinal cord injuries often, but not necessarily result in permanent disability.
Physicians have been discussing for a long time about future therapies that will free the disabled patients from their wheelchairs. At the same time, medicine has found that a solution to spinal injury is very difficult. Since Medical Cannabis legalization, a lot of good data has become available: studies, clinical trials, and testimonials – from physicians and patients that attest to the benefits of Medical Marijuana. Researchers are optimistic that – in combination with other therapies – Medical Marijuana Medicines will make the repair of spinal cord injuries possible someday.

How Medical Cannabis works in Neurological Conditions – Physician’s Testimonials:
Doctors found that people respond to Medical Cannabis because we naturally possess elements that activate receptors – same as Cannabinoids – the active ingredients in Medical Marijuana. It was found, in clinical trials, that skeleton, bones, cartilage and spine growth is regulated by both natural and Marijuana Components. Doctors concluded that fractures healed faster, stronger and better with Marijuana Medication. Both Components (THC and CBD) help with nerve regeneration is several clinical trials.
“The potential of marijuana-related elements is simply undeniable. It is clear that it is possible to detach a clinical therapy objective from the psychoactivity of mmj. Component CBD, the principal agent in our study, is primarily anti-inflammatory and has no psychoactivity.” – Dr. Gabet M.d.
“We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue. Being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.” – Dr. Gabet. MD
“Inflammation is part of the body’s natural immune response. In cases like trauma and injury, it can get out of hand. Trials have also shown that Medical Marijuana is strongly anti-inflammatory, and CBD to be a safe element.” – ONLINE MMJ DOCTOR.
“Component known as THC is safe and an effective med in the treatment of spasticity .” – European Medical Experts.
