Update on Cannabis Oil Side Effects

Time for an update on cannabis oil side effects. Side effects are what are known as the hostile impact, or the unwanted result, of medication. The medication causes a reaction to the patient who is ill already – the secondary effect of the medication which is primarily being used to treat an illness.  This definition immediately rules out cannabis oil having any side effects. As an update, we can again reiterate that cannabis oil does not have any side effects – that is, cannabis oil does not cause any secondary effects that are harmful or any unwanted reactions in the patient. Consider that cannabis oil is extracted directly from a cannabis plant, and agree that the ingredients of that plant remain pure and uncontaminated. Organic Cannabis Oil Has No Side Effects Make sure you choose organic, pure cannabis oil for your treatment to avoid any unexpected side effects. The two most commonly used cannabinoids for medication, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are incredible healing therapies that can treat anything from the common cold to chronic cancer. The only difference is that CBD is anti-psychotic and THC does cause a high because it is psychoactive. So, THC does have side effects […]

How to Use Cannabis Oil to Treat Diabetes

There are ways and means to use cannabis oil to treat diabetes, and how you do it is essential. This is because treating diabetes is complex: this is the umbrella term for several diseases which are related to the inefficient production of insulin in the body. How you use cannabis oil to treat diabetes depends on which strain you have and whether you are in it for life or if you can indeed manage and reverse the disease. Diabetes is a Complex Disease Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease which is usually genetically inherited and can be triggered by a trauma. The immune system attacks the beta cells in the pancreas which secrete insulin. This autoimmune reaction can also be stimulated by chemicals, certain foods which cause allergic reactions, soy, milk or even a virus. Type 1 Diabetes cannot be cured but the patient has to manage the disease for life, injecting insulin every day. Type 2 Diabetes is caused by a resistance to insulin where the blood sugar levels are far too high. Insulin receptors cannot keep up the production of insulin to manage the high blood glucose so eventually they stop working. But this type of diabetes […]

Try the Best South African Cannabis Skin Cream on the Market!

It is time to try the best South African skin cream on the market – which happens to be a cannabis balm and a natural therapy at that. Exactly a year ago, on 6 July 2017, the South African Minister of Health gazetted Cannabidiol (CBD) as a Schedule 6 drug. Only 5 days later, it was rescheduled as a Schedule 4 drug b the Medicines Control Council. For all South Africans, this means that they can try the best skin cream on the market if they get a prescription. Schedule 4 Drugs Need a Prescription This means they have a health issue which could be pain, swollen joints, muscle cramps or other skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or acne. Then they go to the doctor and get a prescription to be allowed to take CBD. This cannabis chemical compound is free of side effects but has powerful healing qualities. Its sister cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive so needs to be better regulated. Schedule 4 drugs can be only taken if there is a prescription to treat chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension and bacterial infections.

Cannabis Legislation in South Africa – What’s New?

There may be no new updates regarding cannabis legislation in South Africa, but the citizens themselves update themselves all the time. If you look closer, if you read between the lines, you will find that the state of limbo of South African cannabis legislation has started processes behind closed doors. Did you know that the country’s first medical cannabis dispensary has opened in Durban? Or that a coffee shop in upmarket Sandton is selling cannabis in its meals and as joints upstairs? When travellers come to sunny South Africa, they seem to know just where to source some of the best cannabis around – right here, in our streets, from our people! What is New Since the Cannabis Court Case? Just more than a year ago, the Western Cape High Court ruled that sections of the Drugs and Drug Trafficking Act, and the Medicines Act, were not legal anymore, in terms of the Constitution. This was as momentous judgement for cannabis legislation in South Africa as it meant that cannabis cannot be banned when grown, used or bought by adults for private home use. There will be no update to cannabis legislation until the Constitutional Court decides these Acts are […]

Can Children Safely Take Cannabis Oil?

Thinking about children and cannabis is a frightening thought because we are conditioned to assume that cannabis is a drug that alters the mind and causes addiction. But we know that children can safely take cannabis oil when it comprises cannabidiol (CBD), or a blend of CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). You see, cannabis oil is a natural therapy which does not have the same harmful side effects that the usual prescribed pharmaceuticals can have. CBD in Small Doses is Safe for Children If a child contracts a disease, or has a certain health condition, their doctors usually prescribe drugs from pharmaceutical companies which can harm the child both physiologically and mentally. THC may be a psychoactive compound but it is not life-threatening and, if taken in a blend with CBD, it is harmless and loses its psychoactive qualities. Children can safely take cannabis oil in small doses, specifically when the oil is mostly CBD. Children suffer all kinds of anxieties and conditions when they are in social and school situations – often these are “abnormal” environments where they cannot be themselves. Autism and ADHD are diagnosed more and more these days and children are having to take heavy drugs to […]

Multiple Sclerosis and Cannabis Oil

The relationship between Multiple Sclerosis and cannabis oil is complex. But it is becoming a good one – many patients are verifying the good effects of cannabis oil on their Multiple Sclerosis symptoms. Cannabis has been used for years already to relieve the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Now doctors are admitting that cannabis oil may also hinder the progress of the disease which can lead to complete disability. This neurodegenerative disease can result in lack of movement in the arms and legs, leaving patients confined to wheel chairs.

There can be one-off attacks, or the disease can build up over time. Between attacks, symptoms can disappear but usually there is permanent neurological damage.  The name multiple sclerosis refers to the numerous scars or lesions that […]

How Does Cannabis Oil Treat Narcolepsy?

Scientists are still uncovering exactly how cannabis oil treats narcolepsy. What they do know is that narcolepsy is a sleep disorder where patients feel overwhelming fatigue during the day, wanting to sleep during normal activities. They also battle to sleep at night as their sleep is constantly interrupted and they suffer vivid nightmares. Cannabis oil can treat sleep disorders like narcolepsy. Taking cannabis oil at night will improve the quality and length of sleep, hopefully reducing that terrible feeling of fatigue during the day.

What are the Differences Between THC and CBD Cannabis Oils?

Cannabis is a fascinating plant with enormous healing capabilities. This is thanks to the many different cannabinoids within cannabis, the two most common and well-used being THC and CBD. What are the differences between THC and CBD cannabis oils? This is something we will break down here. A THC-infused cannabis oil is very different from a CBD-infused cannabis oil. They look different, taste different and react differently inside your body. Why would you take CBD and not THC? Or vice versa? THC or CBD, that is the Question THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, the only psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. CBD is cannabidiol, a cannabinoid free from side effects but packed full of healing abilities. THC is also nature’s incredible healer, but in different ways.

THC copies an endocannabinoid called anandamide, which activates the CB1 receptors, found mainly in the brain – therefore instilling a sense of euphoria and increased appetite.  CBD prevents THC from binding with receptor CB1 – which shows when it mitigates the high THC would cause and it reduces the anxiety THC would cause.
