50% of millennials would pick CBD oil over prescriptions for mental health

Eos Scientific has commissioned research across a sample of more than 2000 UK adults exploring the growing shift in health-conscious millennials seeking CBD oil over prescriptions for mental health

The proportion of NHS A&E patients seen within four hours has fallen dramatically, leaving many people in need of immediate care waiting for longer periods to be seen.

When it comes to mental health, the NHS is providing additional funding to better service the rising number of people seeking support in this area.

However, does it do enough to challenge the fears surrounding the strength of prescription medicines and their side-effects?

What do you know about the therapeutic benefits of Cannabis oil?

Does cannabis oil affect gut inflammation? Can it be used to treat autism spectrum disorder? Discover more as we explore the dynamic world of medical cannabis.

Cannabis oil – which, when produced for medical purposes, contains carefully controlled amounts of the cannabinoids cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – continues to be the subject of much debate. In 2018, medical cannabis became legal in the UK after a nationwide outpouring of support for two young boys who rely on cannabis oil to treat their severe and rare forms of epilepsy, but lingering concerns around the safety and efficiency of the medicine mean that access is still heavily restricted.

Here, Health Europa highlights two recent pieces of research which are adding to the evidence base on the therapeutic benefits of cannabis oil.

Does cannabis oil affect gut inflammation?

Cannabis oil significantly improves both the symptoms of Crohn’s disease and patients’ quality of life, but, contrary to previous medical thinking, does not affect inflammation in the gut.

This is according to a first-of-its-kind, randomised controlled study by researchers in Israel, who enrolled 46 people with moderately severe Crohn’s disease – a type of inflammatory bowel disease – and treated them with either a placebo or cannabis oil containing 15% CBD and 4% THC.1

The researchers measured participants’ symptom severity and quality of life before, during and after treatment using validated research instruments, and assessed inflammation in the gut endoscopically and by measuring inflammatory markers in blood and stool samples.

“Cannabis has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of medical conditions, and studies have shown that many people with Crohn’s disease use cannabis regularly to relieve their symptoms,” explains lead researcher Dr Timna Naftali, a gastroenterology specialist at Meir Hospital and Kupat Holim Clinic.

“It has always been thought that this improvement was related to a reduction in inflammation in the gut, and the aim of this study was to investigate this.”

Results of the treatment

The results were surprising: after eight weeks of treatment, the group receiving cannabis oil had seen a significant improvement in their quality of life and a substantial reduction in their symptoms compared to the placebo group. 65% of the former met strict criteria for clinical remission, compared to just 35% of the latter.

However, these improvements did not seem to be caused by a suppression of the underlying inflammatory process.

“We have previously demonstrated that cannabis can produce measurable improvements in Crohn’s disease symptoms, but, to our surprise, we saw no statistically significant improvements in endoscopic scores or in the inflammatory markers we measured in the cannabis oil group compared with the placebo group,” explains Naftali.

“We know that cannabinoids can have profound anti-inflammatory effects, but this study indicates that the improvement in symptoms may not be related to these anti-inflammatory properties.”

Researchers from Dent Neurologic Institute claim that medical marijuana eases pain, anxiety and sleep disorders in elderly people

Medical marijuana eases pain, anxiety and sleep disorders in elderly people with neurological conditions, according to new research.

After just four months it helps those caused by chronic disorders including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosismotor neurone disease and spinal cord or nerve damage.

About seven in ten (69%) reported some improvement after taking cannabis for four months.

As well as being safe and effective, it also caused a third of patients to reduce their use of powerful opioids that can lead to addiction.

CBD can help your wonderful pets be pain-free. Written by Lorraine Meredith

poe

Poe my Labrador was really struggling this week. He has arthritis in his left hip and was finding it difficult to walk. I knew he was in pain and I increased his painkillers, it didn’t help. So after lots of research, I ordered him some CBD oil, I figured I had nothing to lose.

Within 24 hours he is like a different dog, no limping, jumping on the sofa and being his normal mischievous self. The difference is incredible, I am so happy that I put him on the CBD oil and hopefully, he will now be pain-free.

  • Medical cannabis was made legal on the NHS  following NHS reforms last year
  • Billy Caldwell and his mother returned from three months in ‘exile’ in Canada 
  • They left the UK as they couldn’t find a doctor to prescribe medicinal cannabis
  • But yesterday they picked up cannabis from pharmacy after doctor prescribed it

A 13-year-old epileptic boy whose case led to the legalisation of medical cannabis in Britain has been given his first legal dose the country.

Billy Caldwell and his mother, Charlotte, from Castlederg, Co Tyrone, returned from three months in ‘exile’ in Canada yesterday.

They were forced to leave Britain in November because they were unable to find a doctor willing to prescribe medical cannabis  – despite it now being legal.

The pair landed at Heathrow Airport and pick up the cannabis from a pharmacy in Surrey after being prescribed it by a doctor who was told by the Department of Health it was okay to write a prescription for the medicine.

Since taking the medicine, Billy who suffers from severe epilepsy, has been almost fit-free.

Question…..How many people that do not have an NHS prescription and even if they do finding it very hard to find a pharmacist who will stock it?

That’s why the next best option is to find the very best CBD oil sold legally that is proven to be organic, using the ‘whole plant’ and the CBD oil is CO2 extracted and has been tested by a third-party lab.
