There are not many treatments for fibromyalgia and the ones that do exist are not a permanent cure, as the cause is still unknown. But for those who want to bet on an alternative and natural treatment should try cannabinoid based treatments such as hemp oil.
In 2014 the Medical Plants research group at the University of Seville discovered that the hemp seeds from cannabis are beneficial to the body. Its chemical composition has a stupefying effect that can alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Benefits of hemp oil for fibromyalgia
Hemp oil has omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. It also contains another series of potentially bioactive components such as phenolic compounds, sterols and fatty alcohols, among others. In addition, this oil does not possess any type of addictive component.
To test the benefits of Cannabis Sativa L oil, the researchers in Seville conducted a trial using mice. After administering hemp oil they discovered that it causes cognitive abilities to recover, it can diminish pain and normalize the muscular tone of the mice that did not have fibromyalgia.
The positive results of medical cannabis for fibromyalgia have led the University of Seville to patent the use of hemp oil to prevent and treat fibromyalgia. The patent is of great interest since its composition could be used to be supplied to patients with fibromyalgia through tablets or other solutions, such as a food supplement or by introducing it directly into the food itself.
