Cachexia

Clinical trials carried out for other pathologies have shown the effectiveness of cannabinoids in improving lack of appetite and weight gain. Read More

Cancer

There are cannabioids such as THC and CBD which are believed to have anti-tumour properties. Cannabinoids activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors and initiate cancer cell apoptosis. Read More

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is characterised by a duration of more than 3-6 months, it can persist even if the cause has disappeared. Read More

Crohn’s disease

Several clinical trials have shown that cannabinoids can act through the CB2 receptor, reducing associated inflammation. Read More

Cystic Fibrosis

The potential of CBD is being investigated for its anti-inflammatory effect and to help reduce inflammation in the lungs or digestive tract. Read More

Depresion

Within the clinical trials currently underway, the link between CBD and increased levels of anandamide is being sought in order to have an antidepressant effect. Read More

Diabetes

A study focusing on tetrahydrocannabivarin ( THCV) showed that it can be a potential agent for glycaemic control in diabetics. Read More

Dravet Syndrome

The monthly frequency of seizures was reduced by 38-44% in the case of seizures and 39-51% in the case of CBD seizures. Read More

Dystonia

A medical paper found that the use of Cannabidiol showed a favourable dose-response relationship to decrease in dyskinesias, tics and dystonia. Read More

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

Observing some specific symptoms, CBD could be an excellent prescription due to its analgesic, anxiolytic and anti-inflammatory actions. Read More

Endometriosis

The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of phytocannabinoids allows an improvement in the symptoms of endometriosis. Read More

Epidermolysis Bullosa

Research on patients with epidermolysis bullosa is showing the potential of cannabinoids to inhibit the proliferation of dangerous epidermal cells. Read More

Epilepsy

Studies suggest that cannabinoids as an adjuvant treatment for seizures can reduce them by a large percentage. Read More

Fibromyalgia

Results from studies suggest that cannabinoids may offer some benefit as a treatment for the pain suffered by people with fibromyalgia. Read More

Glaucoma

Research from 2018 has shown that ESA can not only reduce eye pressure, but can also act on certain receptors to act as neuroprotectors against damage to the optic nerve. Read More

Headaches

One study found that cananbinoids interact with the CB1 receptors, those that play an important role in analgesia, and their activation significantly reduces pain. Read More

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD)

The analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect of cannabinoids improve the symptoms of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. Read More

Hepatitis C

There is conflicting research on the use of cannabinoids. And further studies are pending to determine their effectiveness. Read More

HIV -AIDS

CB2 agonist receptors reduce the mechanisms of HIV infection. However, several studies are needed to better understand the medical potential of cannabis to treat HIV and AIDS. Read More

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)

Spanish researchers investigate the CBD for HIE. With a clinical trial in Spanish and British hospitals, we have relevant data. Read More

Huntington

Results from studies suggest that cannabinoids may offer some benefit as a treatment for the pain suffered by people with fibromyalgia. Although CBD and THC are almost identical molecules, CBD’s properties make it a powerful antioxidant. Read More

The effect of cannabinoids is notorious for their relaxing and “sleeping” effect without affecting the cognitive state or becoming addictive after intake. Read More

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Endocannabinoids may represent the most promising therapeutic neuromodulatory target. Read More
