Having Fibromyalgia sucks, we know. But we have good news for those who are going through this painful curse!
Recently, Cannabis Science, a company that’s well known for producing therapeutic medication based on weed, has announced that they have created two newfound weed-based medicine for people who have nerve pain caused by diabetic neuropathy as well as fibromyalgia.
So, What Does it Do?
Obviously, these are painkillers infused with cannabis. These medications are designed to be shot through a patient’s bloodstream using sticky skin patches. Sounds painless right? It definitely is better than having a needle pierce through your skin. Patients with fibromyalgia can now get relief without going through additional pain.
Compared to traditional techniques like taking medicine orally, using topical lotions/creams or using intravenous and intramuscular medicines, the transdermal approach is more suitable for fibromyalgia patients due to its exact dosage content compared to other known procedures. It eases treatment of a specific body part that feels the pain the most rather than letting it run throughout the entire body. Through this, concentration and effectiveness is increased.
In other words, the transdermal patch enables the patient to receive a more controlled release of the medication. This is considered more effective that oral dosages.
The process involves the usage of a porous membrane that concedes the medicine to slowly yet surely be consumed by the skin. Another method involves transplanting thin layers of the medicine into the adhesive that once stuck to the user’s skin, their natural body heat will be the one to melt it and let it be absorbed into the system.
Raymond C. Dabney; the Cannabis Science CEO, firmly deduces that these new two medicines are just the start of a longer, bigger progress not only for his company but as well as to the development of further and more cannabis infused medicinal procedures for the future and for patients who need it.
Dabney stated that developing these two new therapeutic applications of cannabis is just a taste of what Cannabis Science can achieve. Their firm is constantly working to improve and increase their land and facilities so that they may grow weed supply for better formulations. Their scientists are also doing research on how to potentially aply medical marijuana and delivering it effectively.
