Pain and Inflammation

Effective therapeutic options for patients living with chronic pain are limited. The pain relieving effects of cannabinoids are wide ranging. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system and its role in the control of pain and inflammation, as well as the significant pain relieving and anti-inflammatory characteristics of cannabinoids, provide explanation for the usefulness of cannabinoids in pain treatments.

Epilepsy and Seizures

The endocannabinoid system modulates neuronal excitability, protects neurons against hyperexcitability, and can regulate seizure activity. Some cannabinoids have long been recognized as having antiepileptic characteristics. While this field of treatment is showing tremendous progress, cannabinoids can exert some paradoxical effects in relation to epilepsy, so due diligence is recommended.

Immune System and Infectious Disorders

The endocannabinoid system modulates immune phenomena associated with infection and inflammation. It can be exploited to treat chronic diseases and immune deficiency.
