Over the years there have been extensive studies into the medicinal benefits of marijuana, and marijuana has the power to heal diseases like cancer and Parkinson´s disease – but the latest study shows that this magical plant has the power to heal broken bones, too.
The research was hosted in Tel Aviv, and the findings are that CBD, even when it is not taken in conjunction with THC, rapidly increases the healing process for broken bones. It may even be a better alternative to the cast.
About the study
Their study was conducted on rats with mid-femoral fractures. When they administered CBD on these rats, they found that the rate of reformation of the bone was increased. The healing of the femora was enhanced in just eight weeks.
One group of rats was injected with both THC and CBD, and the other group with CBD only. The results found that all that was needed was CBD for the healing process to be expedited.
This same team has conducted research in the past on the effect of CBD on bone formation and their results are astounding. They found that using CBD assisted bone formation and also inhibited bone loss.
This means that after using CBD and the bone heals, it will in fact, be harder to break after that. CBD has the ability to put the bone back together in a better condition than it was in the first place.
“We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue,” said Dr. Gabet, the leader of the research in Tel Aviv.
Using CBD daily
CBD is a realistic option for using daily because it does not contain any psychoactive properties. It is ideal for those wanting to use marijuana medicinally, because separating CBD from THC means that you do not get high.
The magic of modern science means that the medicinal benefits of marijuana are available to the user without having to experience the consciousness-altering effects.
This study shows that using it daily actually increases bone strength as well as being a medicine for broken bones. CBD is known to treat a large range of diseases, such as epilepsy and Multiple Sclerosis, but this new research shows that a lot of its medicinal properties are still unknown. It´s likely that the medical benefits of cannabis are more than we even expected.
The truth about cannabis is that it continues to give people an incredible medicinal reason to use it. Its healing powers are incredible. The more research that goes into the medicinal benefits of cannabis, and CBD more specifically, the more it is found to be an incredibly healing plant.
