Cannabidiol Could Be Promising Treatment For Healing Broken Bones
A new study shows that the non-psychoactive cannabinoid Cannabidiol (CBD) could play a vital role in the healing of broken bones.
Data from the study, which was led by two researchers, Dr. Yankel Gabet of the Bone Research Laboratory at Tel Aviv University and the late professor Itai Bab of the Bone Laboratory at Hebrew University, suggests that broken bones heal faster and stronger when the patient received CBD.
“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,” said Dr. Gabet in a statement. “After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.”
Talk about your amazing discovery, right?
Researchers Use Cannabidiol As Treatment To Heal Broken Bones
The study’s researchers administered CBD to a batch of lab rats with mid-femoral fractures. Eight weeks in, researchers noted a vast advance in the healing of the lab rats’ broken bones.
As a comparison, the study’s examiners administered a combo of CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to a different group of lab rats. After reviewing the results, they concluded that using CBD on its own was an effectual treatment.
“We found CBD alone to be sufficiently effective in enhancing fracture healing,” said Dr. Gabet. “Other studies have also shown CBD to be a safe agent, which leads us to believe we should continue this line of study in clinical trials to assess its usefulness in improving human fracture healing.”
This study is just one of many that prove our beloved federal government owes the entire world an apology for outlawing the most incredible plant genus known to mankind, cannabis.
