  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller There are studies done by local researchers stating that cannabis is good as a pain reliever for lots of medical conditions. They have found out that marijuana may lessen the pain of any health conditions if use properly. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller "Thats the major finding of a local research team into the pain caused by nerve injuries, a pain known to be somewhat resistant to morphine and similar drugs that are the gold standard for treating just about any other kind of serious pain." They said that cannabis has an active component that can help in lessening the pain of any health condition. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller "Its known that if you injure a nerve, the morphine receptors in the spinal cord disappear and thats probably why morphine isnt a very effective pain killer for such conditions as shingles, people who have had an amputation or perhaps if cancer has invaded the spinal cord," says Andrew Rice, a senior lecturer in pain research at Londons Imperial College. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller "But what weve shown is that the cannabinoid receptors do not disappear when you injure a nerve. So this could offer a therapeutic advantage over morphine for treating such pain, " he added. Cannabinoids are components of cannabis or compounds that mimic cannabis, and discovering the complexities behind how and why they can offer pain relief has been the focus of various areas of research. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller Rice says the significance of his teams research is that they mapped the cannabinoid receptors in the spinal cord and showed that they are found specifically in areas concerned with pain processing. "Other researchers showed that if you inject cannabinoid compounds in small doses in the spinal cord, you get pain relief. And we showed how that effect is mediated," he explains. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller "In addition, a third group of people showed that nerve cells in the spinal cord that are normally activated by pain are damped down by small doses of cannabinoid in the spinal cord fluid." The findings were published in a recent issue of Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
  • Sacramento Medical Marijuana as a Painkiller Rice says the task now is to find out how to administer the cannabinoids, but he cautions that the most familiar -- smoking it -- is the last thing researchers would advise. "Smoking is obviously a big health hazard and were certainly not going to advocate that people smoke cannabis. So right now were looking at ways of delivering the drug to the body," he says. ©www.ElCaminoWellnessCenter.com
