In this day and age, most people are aware of the powerful medicinal benefits of Cannabis. Cannabis is being studied in almost every aspect for its benefits against cancer. But this new method of cannabis treatment is some serious medical technology.
A company that specializes in the medicinal powers of marijuana have invented a new method of cannabis treatment. They have created transdermal patches. They are basically adhesives to the skin, and the medication is absorbed by the skin. The patch releases certain chemicals over time to combat neurological nerve pain. There have been no negative side effects found either. This seems to be the best way to administer medicinal cannabis to patients.
The creator of the patch, Cannabis Science said:
PROMOTE HEALING TO AN INJURED AREA OF THE BODY. AN ADVANTAGE OF A TRANSDERMAL DRUG DELIVERY ROUTE OVER OTHER TYPES OF MEDICATION DELIVERY SUCH AS ORAL, TOPICAL, INTRAVENOUS, INTRAMUSCULAR, ETC. IS THAT THE PATCH PROVIDES A CONTROLLED RELEASE OF THE MEDICATION INTO THE PATIENT, USUALLY THROUGH EITHER A POROUS MEMBRANE COVERING A RESERVOIR OF MEDICATION OR THROUGH BODY HEAT MELTING THIN LAYERS OF MEDICATION EMBEDDED IN THE ADHESIVE WHICH WILL BE CONTAINING HIGH POTENCY CANNABINOID (CBD) EXTRACT THAT SLOWLY ENTERS INTO THE BLOODSTREAM AND THEN PENETRATES THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM OF THE PATIENT DELIVERING THE PAIN RELIEF SOUGHT.”
Company CEO of Cannabis science also said:
“THE DEVELOPMENT OF THESE TWO NEW PHARMACEUTICAL MEDICINAL APPLICATIONS ARE JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG FOR WHAT WE SEE AS THE FUTURE FOR CANNABIS SCIENCE. WHILE WE STRIVE TO INCREASE OUR LAND CAPACITY FOR GROWTH AND FACILITIES TO PRODUCE OUR OWN PRODUCT TO SUPPLY OUR SCIENTISTS WITH PROPRIETARY MATERIALS TO MAKE THESE FORMULATIONS, WE ARE ALSO BUSY RESEARCHING MORE POTENTIAL NEEDS FOR CANNABIS RELATED MEDICAL APPLICATIONS AND DEVELOPING THE METHODS FOR DELIVERY OF THESE MEDICATIONS.”
