Whether you are looking for relief from anxiety, pain or depression, or you are simply curious about the benefits of ingesting marijuana, there are a few things you need to know before you make your final decision.
Cannabinoids have anti-tumor effects
Various anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids include inhibition of angiogenesis, inhibition of metastasis, anti-apoptotic properties, and anti-proliferative properties. The anti-tumor activity of cannabinoids has been investigated in a variety of human and animal cancer models. These studies suggest that cannabinoids have potential as cancer therapeutics.
The anti-tumour effects of cannabinoids can be attributed to inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) pathway. Cannabinoids also induce autophagy in cancer cells. In addition, cannabinoids induce apoptosis in glioma cells. These effects are also seen in pancreatic cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
Cannabinoid-induced apoptosis is dependent on ER stress and stimulation of autophagy. This mechanism is also present in glioma and pancreatic cancer cells. However, the exact mechanism of cannabinoid-induced cell death is not completely understood.
In a study of cannabinoid anti-tumour effects, delta-9-THC and cannabidiol were tested in mouse models of liver cancer. In these models, the two cannabinoids decreased tumour growth, while having little effect on normal cells.
THC does not have any effect on pain, quality of life, anxiety or depression
Compared to placebo, cannabinoids are effective at improving sleep disturbance. They are also associated with euphoria, sedation, and dizziness.
Several randomized trials have investigated the effects of cannabinoids on sleep, but the quality of evidence is insufficient. Most trials were short in duration and did not include patient-reported outcomes. However, cannabinoids are considered to be a better choice than placebo for improving sleep disturbance, and studies are needed to determine whether or not they are effective for insomnia.
Cannabinoids are effective antiemetics for chronic pain and chemotherapy. Their effects are modest for other conditions, though they may be useful for certain types of pain. Their anxiolytic properties are also worth noting.
One study showed that cannabinoids may help prevent delirium in terminal cancer patients. However, this was not the most rigorous study of its kind. It is important to note that delirium is a common condition in this population.
How long does RSO last in fridge?
Among the many benefits of RSO is the ability to consume it both orally and topically. It can be smoked or taken orally, or savored by eating it as a topping on a meal or ingested in a suppository. You can also take it under the tongue, or cook it in the same manner as you would any other food.
One question that arises is how long does RSO last in the refrigerator? The short answer is about six months. Depending on how you store the product, you could extend its life for several months.
The best way to know for sure is to ask a budtender. They will be able to advise you as to what you should be using. Most dispensaries have a variety of oils available.
Common strains used to make RSO
Originally created by Rick Simpson as a topical cancer treatment, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is a concentrated cannabis oil. It contains high levels of THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid that is known to reduce pain. It is also known for its ability to help treat insomnia, cancer, and other conditions.
Rick Simpson’s original recipe for RSO was based on a 1975 study in mice that showed how cannabis can inhibit tumor growth. He developed a plan to slowly increase his dose of RSO over 90 days. The plan recommends taking a tiny drop of RSO every eight hours. This will help the endocannabinoid system to become active.
Rick Simpson has continued to advocate for the use of cannabis to treat medical conditions. He now maintains a website that contains his recipe for RSO.
How much RSO should new patients take?
Among the many benefits of using RSO, one of the most important is how it helps with anxiety. In fact, thousands of patients have reported that using RSO has made a huge difference in their quality of life. This oil has also been shown to help reduce nausea and anxiety related to chemotherapy.
Before you decide to use RSO for anxiety, you may want to talk with your primary care physician about it. Your doctor may recommend that you combine it with other anxiety medicines. It’s also important to note that RSO is not meant to replace any medical treatment. It is a concentrated cannabis product and should be used in moderation.
RSO is made of cannabis extracts and terpenes. In addition to the active ingredients, it also contains beneficial lipids, chlorophyll, and flavonoids. It is also sold in measured-dose syringes, making it easy to dispense.
