This article by US Health Times discusses an article published by The Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. It was conducted by researchers from Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University. The study showed that CBD strengthens bones and accelerates the healing of fractures without any of the psychoactive effects.
Yankel Gabet, one of the researchers said, “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. After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.”
A team of experts inflicted mild femoral fractures on rats, and then gave an injection of CBD following the break. Gabet said, “We found CBD alone to be sufficiently effective in enhancing fracture healing. Other studies have also shown CBD to be a safe agent, which leads us to believe we shoul continue this line of study in clinical trials to assess its usefulness in improving human fracture healing.”
Previously, this same research group found that the body has cannabinoid receptors that are not limited to the brain. Some of these receptors, trigger bone formation and prevent bone loss. This second study only confirmed these findings. Gabet said:
“We only respond to cannabis because we are built with intrinsic compounds and receptors that can also be activated by compounds in the cannabis plant. The clinical potential of cannabinoid-related compounds is simply undeniable at this point. While there is still a lot of work to be done to develop appropriate therapies, it is clear that it is possible to detach a clinical therapy objective from the psychoactivity of cannabis. CBD, the principal agent in our study, is primarily anti-inflammatory and has no psychoactivity.”
The article also points out that CBD is now been researched and shown to suppress seizures, inhibit the metastasis of many aggressive cancer, and destroy leukemia cells. The federal government still insists that there is “no currently accepted medical use”, however a recent FDA ruling may change that, because it approved the use of CBD extracts as an experimental treatment for Dravet syndrome – a rare form of childhood epilepsy.
