This week we’re taking a look at some of the lesser known cannabinoids such as CBN and CBG which are believed to have anti-fungal properties, and THCV that’s being used as a weight loss aid.
Additionally, we’re covering the top five medical uses for CBD, a new study that looks at cannabis and arthritis, and a rare condition known as Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome. Continue reading for all the details.
Although they’re incredibly common, fungal foot infections are both uncomfortable and inconvenient – especially with summer approaching. If you’re looking for a natural solution other than tea tree oil to treat a foot fungus, it’s believed that a couple of different cannabinoids could offer an effective alternative.
A new study conducted by CreakyJoints revealed that both medical cannabis and CBD alone helped nearly 90 percent of the arthritic patients they observed. CreakyJoints is a nonprofit organization that operates under the Global Healthy Living Foundation. They provide support and information to people suffering from arthritis.
Unsurprisingly, THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) is very similar to THC in terms of molecular structure, but the effects are entirely different. For example, while THC is known to cause the “muchies”, THCV is often used as an all-natural weight loss supplement. In the fashion of killing two birds with one stone, as THCV decreases the desire to eat, it also helps regulate blood sugar.
Although CBD has completely blown up over the last few years, there remains a great deal of confusion over what conditions are best treated by this cannabinoid. It’s true that the uses are extremely varied, but there are certain medical issues that just respond better to CBD than others, as is expected. Here we’ll below we’ll discuss a few of the most common and well-documented medical uses for CBD.
Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome, or CHS for short, is an extremely rare condition that can occur in long-term, heavy cannabis users. Symptoms typically include recurrent episodes of nausea and vomiting, accompanied by dehydration and subsequent emergency room visits. One interesting thing about this disorder is that the discomfort is often quelled by a hot shower, so the urge to bath frequently is a common criterion.
