The Treatment of Cannabis Toxicity

he increasing prevalence and potency of cannabis following the legalization of recreational marijuana sales in a number of states have also increased the rate of emergency room visits associated with the drug. The Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS) reported over 1.5 million estimated ER visits associated with cannabis in 2017, over 1% of all visits to the ER during that year. Rates of cannabis-related visits were growing at an average of 13% per year and are expected to be higher now. (As originall posted on Benzinga.com by Nate Guzowski)

Study Finds Marijuana Reduces Pain, but Worsens Self-Care

 

The 1998 comedy “The Big Lebowski” has a cult-like status as a stoner film, largely because of the way Jeff Bridges portrays a weed-smoking slacker who has no job, can’t pay the rent and spends half the movie in a bathroom robe. The Dude abides life at his own pace.

A new study may have inadvertently reinforced some of that stoner stigma, finding that marijuana use reduces pain but significantly worsens patient “self-care” – a broad category that includes behavior such as motivation, physical activity and appearance.

As the medicinal benefits of cannabis continue to be explored, researchers are beginning to understand that the cannabinoids found in the plant go way beyond those that most people are familiar with: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive cannabinoid in the marijuana plant, and cannabidiol (CBD), a nonpsychoactive compound that is believed to relieve pain, reduce anxiety and induce sleep.

But with more than 200 known cannabinoids and an increasing amount of research, cannabis consumers are increasingly interested in what’s known as “rare cannabinoids,” even though it’s still unclear what benefits they may have.

Amid growing cannabis access, data for rheumatology benefit still 'fraught with bias'

cannabis jars

There is no doubt that patients with rheumatic and autoimmune diseases are taking full advantage of relaxed laws in the United States surrounding recreational cannabis use.

The question, however, is whether or not the improvements in pain, inflammation or sleep they are experiencing are attributable to true medicinal effects.

 

“There are various concentrations of THC and CBD in different products; patients may take it orally and there are creams and vapors,” Donald Abrams, MD, told Healio Rheumatology. “There is too much variety in the products available, which makes any attempt to understand their impact fraught with bias.” Source: Adobe Stock
