A few years ago, an international team of researchers from the UK, Belgium and Romania conducted a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group efficacy study on the safety and tolerability of the cannabis extract containing both THC and CBD and on the cannabis extract containing only THC in patients with intractable pain related to cancer.
The researchers said these are the preclinical results of a further conducted clinical study of patients with chronic cancer pain refractory to treatment. They explained that in this study, the extract of THC and CBD showed an efficacy profile more promising than the THC extract alone. This conclusion is supported by evidence of further synergy between THC and CBD, which may increase the analgesic potential of THC. Also CBD can produce anti-inflammatory effects, along with its ability to inhibit the migration of immune cells.
This study, published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management, has very encouraging results and warrant further study.
At Chalice Farms, cannabis extracts with both THC and CBD are produced from the best medical cannabis strains, to ensure the best management of chronic pain associated with cancer and also with a series of other pathologies responsible for chronic pain. Ask your physician to prescribe it for you.
