CBD and Pain Management in a Study Conducted by Dr. Sara Jane Ward
The following study was conducted at Temple University (Philadephia, PA) by Dr. Sara Jane Ward, Asst. Professor at the Center for Substance Abuse Research along with her research team. Dr. SJ Ward published a medical abstract on the experiments conducted. The study was done regarding chemotherapy induced pain in mice brought on from the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel (sold as the brand-name Taxol, among others) and using cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment on these mice for pain management.
An excerpt of the study:
Our preliminary findings therefore indicate that cannabidiol may prevent the development of paclitaxel-induced allodynia in mice and therefore be effective at preventing dose-limiting paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy in humans. . See study.
Here is a direct quote regarding this same study from Dr. Sara Jane Ward herself:
Dr. Sara Jane Ward, Temple University (Philadephia) (Seen to the left):
From what we’ve seen so far, it’s almost a complete prevention of the onset of neuropathic pain,” said Ward in the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia. Ward is the lead author of the study.
This study suggests that CBD can be helpful in preventing neuropathic pain in humans. CBD is the second most predominant phytocannabinoid second only to THC in the cannabis plant. CBD is THC's non-psychoactive cousin. Scientists are hopeful as they uncover the growing possibilities of the cannabis plant's analgesic properties being purported from populations of patients on an international scale. CBD hemp oil is being carefully studied in labs all over the world. Doctors scurry in light of recent discoveries to formulate more effective pain relieving medicines for humans using cannabis extract as a base. Dr. Sara Ward is particularly interested in CBD as a treatment for painful conditions such as, neuro-inflammation in the spinal cord, traumatic brain injury TBI, strokes, and pain suffered from chemotherapy.
Ancient Writings Chronicle Cannabis as a Revered Herbal Medicine for Pain
Prior to the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, marijuana tinctures were available in American pharmacies and used for pain among other reasons. Over 5,000 years ago, Traditional Chinese Medicine revered the cannabis plant as one of 50 "fundamental" herbs for medicine. Cannabis was part of traditional everyday medicine in ancient China. Today, in many political circles cannabis is erroneously considered an illegal and dangerous substance like morphine and alcohol. Emperor Shen Nung (an ancient herbal pharmacist) wrote a book on herbal remedies in 2737 B.C. As the medicinal herbal treatments and folk medicine of Shen Nung survived and were carried down over several millinnia, a book was compiled in 1 A.D. called, "Pen Ts’ao Ching" which is a chronicle of ancient herbal medical treatments. The book is considered the most ancient herbal medicine book in historical existence. The book notes over 100 medical uses for cannabis, such as, gout, rheumatism, malaria and absentmindedness..
Over the centuries, more medicinal uses for cannabis were added to the "Pen Ts'ao Ching" pharmacopoeia, such as: nausea, parasites, neuropathy, anesthesia and blood hemorrhages.
Documented Medical Studies Regarding THC and CBD for Chronic Pain Sufferers
Today there are many disorders and diseases that result in chronic pain for instance: fibromyalgia; cancer; HIV/AIDS; rheumatoid arthritis (RA); Crohn's disease; drug, alcohol, and cigarette withdrawal; bone fractures; hemorrhages; inflammatory bowel disease (IBO); and migraines.
Many professionals in cannabis research agree that the anecdotal evidence, ancient manuscripts, and pre-clinical trials support cannabis' history as a pain reliever and an area of science worthy of thorough exploration. THC is the most medically studied of all cannabinoids and its cousin CBD work in tandem to potentially diminish pain symptoms of all kinds. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) interact with the Endocannabinoid System activating receptors CB1 and CB2, directly and indirectly, in ways science is only beginning to understand bringing about homeostasis to the central nervous system's immune cells which in turn act to release neurotransmitters to potentially mitigate pain..
Scientists know that CBD is utilized in a chemical process in the body's Endocannabinoid System but they have yet to pinpoint exactly how or why CBD seems to work on areas of pain. Research utilizing real patients in blind-studies continue, and a minute few of these studies are noted below. In one study after another, patients reported significant improvements in pain thresholds after imbibing in cannabis treatment. The following are just a few excerpts of various patient testimonies:
1. Polls show that a vast population of chronic pain sufferers seek out cannabis therapy voluntarily. Those people reported in anecdotal testimonials improvements in pain, sleep and mood..
2. 75% of chronic pelvic pain sufferers reported their pain was alleviated with cannabis..
3. Over a 6-week time frame 12-15 chronic pain sufferers who smoked herbal cannabis reported improvements in their pain..
4. Examiners gave detailed questionnaires to HIV-positive patients participating in a cannabis/pain study. 94% of the pain candidates expressed improvement in muscle pain after cannabis therapy, while 90% declare lower nerve pain levels..
5. Multiple Sclerosis patients were part of a double-blind study, those who utilized THC/CBD spray noted drastic reductions in pain compared to the placebo recipients.
6. Twenty-three patients with post-traumatic neuropathic pain experienced marketable amelioration in the intensity of pain along with more immediate abilities to fall asleep faster along with an upgrade in their quality of sleep..
Research studies have concluded that long term use of cannabis to manage chronic pain is perfectly safe. .
