Recently a new medication has been launched for the patients of fibromyalgia. This medication is developed by a company working in the field of cannabis-based medicines. The medication is a simple transdermal patch (Just like a nicotine patch), You just have to place it on your body and it will stimulate the flow of blood and will eventually help alleviate the Pain.
According to the Company, This transdermal patch works more effectively and efficiently in healing the injured area as compared to traditional medication delivery processes like Capsules, Syrups, Topical, etc which makes this patch very important for fibromyalgia and diabetic nerve pain.
This cannabis patch releases controlled medication within the body of the patient. Medication with cannabis patch can be released in the patient via two different forms which are as follows :
- First one is Through a porous membrane covering a reservoir of medication.
- In the Second form, Company adds multiple cannabis medication layer on the adhesive side of the patch. Once placed on the Body, Cannabis Patch uses body heat to melt down the layers of CBD Extract thus adding medicine into the bloodstream which eventually interacts with the central nervous system and reduces pain.
Mr. Raymond C. Dabney (CEO of Cannabis science) firmly believes that the future of medication is cannabis. Cannabis is more Powerful and helpful than opiods that we use on a regular basis. These transdermal patches are the first step showing that cannabis can work better than pharmaceutical medicines. He also said that his company is looking to enhance land capacity in order to increase the growth and manufacturing of its own products. On the other hand, His company is also looking to find more efficient ways to treat fibromyalgia and diabetic nerve pain.
Fibromyalgia affects almost 8% of the world population which means every 1 out of 8 people is affected with fibromyalgia whether he/she knows it or not. Women are almost twice affected than men with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia causes widespread Pain and fatigue along with many other symptoms. If Somehow governments allow us to use cannabis for medical purposes than the life of many fibromyalgia sufferers will change. Cannabis can also help in calming the nerves which cause widespread pain in fibromyalgia patient body.
CBD is the second most important cannabinoid after THC in marijuana. If we neglect the psychoactive effects related to THC, It has anti-inflammatory and pain alleviating properties. Mr. Raymond concluded that if countries/states keep legalizing Medical marijuana than this whole nightmare for fibromyalgia patient would be over soon. He also said that his team is looking to create more effective cannabis medications in order to meet future demands.
