Cannabis-related Schizophrenia Set To Rise, Say Researchers

Science Daily - Science Daily (press release) - Mar 26, 2007The research study matches historic trends in cannabis use and exposure from a national population survey against estimates of new occurrences of schizophrenia in three English cities (Nottingham, Bristol and the London Borough of Southwark). The researchers assess what might happen to schizophrenia cases if we assume a causal link between cannabis use and onset of psychotic symptoms, an association widely recognised by some psychiatrists and researchers and considered recently by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. Exposure to cannabis grew fourfold over the thirty years to 2002, and its use among under-18s by 18-fold, say the researchers. If cannabis use causes schizophrenia, these increases in its use would lead to increases in overall schizophrenia incidence and prevalence of 29 per cent and 12 per cent respectively, between 1990 and 2010. (Incidence is defined as the frequency of new occurrences; and prevalence is the percentage of the population affected by the disease… The research study matches historic trends in cannabis use and exposure from a national population survey against estimates of new occurrences of schizophrenia in three English cities (Nottingham, Bristol and the London Borough of Southwark).

However, assuming an association between onset of the disease and both light and heavy users, then approximately one-quarter of new cases could be due to cannabis.

Addictions -Cannabidiol can alleviate them

The life of a problematic addict is almost entirely about his addiction. He often has more to do with fundraising and addiction satisfaction than someone who works full-time. People who come home from detoxification often do not have much to do and fall into a hole that almost automatically returns to relapse. It is not just this hole in which addicts fall after detoxification. Even during a month-long therapy, there are many relapses, although the affected have fixed structures and daily routine. Many have the craze for years to come. The physical withdrawal is therefore not the relapse problem. It is the addiction pressure in the head, which becomes overpowering in problematic phases of life or also in everyday stress situations. With the relapse, the physical dependence sets in again and holds the person concerned. Physical withdrawal is very uncomfortable and can be life threatening. That's why the path to detoxification is more meaningful. To reduce the addiction pressureThe lawmakers, many doctors and social workers agree that addicts should be moved by a therapy to a abstinent life. Because of this addictive pressure, this has virtually never been a prospect of success in the severely addicted. Even if the therapists live abstinently for months or even years, a stressful situation such as dismissal, a death, or a broken relationship will break everything down. The vast majority do not succeed after the therapy even a year, without resorting to the source substance or a substitute substance. These are the reasons why a substitution with drugs or replacement drugs could even be established. It was the obvious failure of the therapy goal of abstinence. The substitution agent should not be intoxicating if possible, but it should alleviate the addiction pressure. Even in stressful situations, the therapist should maintain his strength and manage his life without relapse. This is where cannabidiol, a cannabinoid of the hemp plant, becomes interesting. This cannabinoid has innumerable functions in the body, can soothe or heal many illnesses and at the same time suppress the addiction in the head. Cannabidiol does not make you physically dependent, it does not trigger high and it is almost impossible to accidentally take a lethal dose. For these reasons too, it is a very safe substance in comparison with other substitution agents, which in Germany is not even subject to BtM like many other substitution agents. Methadone or polamidone can only be prescribed by the substitution doctor with a BtM prescription or even be collected on a daily basis. CBD products can be purchased without prescription in pharmacies or online. The benefits of cannabidiolMethadone is the best known substitution drug for opiate dependencies. Many are not known to be addicted in a similar way to heroin. However, it does not trigger the intoxication. The substance has only a different effect, is administered to the substitute in pure quality and these are not pursued. So a more normal life is possible. However, methadone can be abused, severely dependent and an overdose can be fatal. This is different with cannabidiol. Taking a high dose here can make you tired. That's all, though. It does not make high. Normally you do not take such high doses. Furthermore, cannabidiol does not pollute the organs or kill brain cells. So it's a safe substance to grow old with. A normal life becomes possible without the first stress factor throwing you back. This will help CBD stay away from tobacco, alcohol, opiate, amphetamine, cocaine or any other active ingredient. Whether it really helps someone, but can not be said blanket. It always depends on the people and situations, whether CBD helps enough. Even if it only helps a little bit, the difference can already be very large - however, a regulated life away from problem consumers and the scene are always the prerequisite for getting out of a hard addiction. It can and may therefore also here no "promise of action" are given.An addiction can be sufficiently attenuated depending on the course with low or only from higher amounts. In no case will it be a mistake to start with 5 to 10 mg in the morning and at noon and 10 to 30 mg in the evening. If one reacts sensitively, these CBD quantities would not throw one off course. That would only be one or two very quiet days. If these amounts are insufficient, they can be increased and you can take a little more in acute stress situations. It is a bit like the patient has to find his dose, which he feels comfortable with and sufficiently dampens his addictive pressure. In case of uncertainties, a knowledgeable doctor should be consulted, who of course can not be replaced by this article. Cloth-bound and non-clothed addictionIn an addiction disease many think only of the substance-based addictions such as alcoholism or opiate addiction. A non-substance addiction would be an example of gambling addiction. But also sports, chatting, eating or anorexia and sex can addict. It is often spoken of behavioralism. For those affected, these actions activate the reward center in the brain, as do other alcohol or opiate. Thus, these acts act on those affected just like a drug. It can even be found mental withdrawal symptoms as in a drug withdrawal. Even in the case of a non-substance addiction, those affected fall into a hole after weaning or directly fall over in case of stress. They bring home and farm just like an alcoholic or junkie, without being able to control it. Even in the case of non-substance addiction, addiction pressure is the problem with which those affected relapse long after weaning, even at the slightest stress. Cannabidiol can also help to preserve the calm and serenity that life goes on with. Not everyone reacts the same wayAn addiction can annihilate entire existences, many will have high hopes for advertised "miracle solutions". However, it must never be forgotten that every person is different. Not everyone is addicted to the same substances or actions. Not everyone responds to the same substitution in the same way. For some, cannabidiol will help significantly in small doses, but not in others. That's why it would not be enough to test which quantities are well tolerated. It would also be over several weeks to check whether this amount also really dampens addiction. Third, it can be tested if less cannabidiol has a sufficient effect, since it costs money after all. If you were to get nervous in a stress situation, you just take something more, as it is done with other acute medications. useful informationThe big danger in breaking one addiction is the way to the next. It is not only the relapse, but also the change from one substance to another that is normal for severely dependent persons. However, those who have a strong consumption pattern will also have a strong consumption with the other substance. The addicts, who share their thoughts with each other, know that. Because of this, it has long been established that some addicts are switching to potent hemp instead of alcohol, opiates, or medications. This is at least less harmful with strong forms of consumption, it is more likely a more normal life possible. These insights that potent hemp may be the "lesser evil" of addiction have long been known. Accordingly, Dr. Edward A. Birch in the magazine "The Lancet" already reported in 1889 on treatment success with potent hemp in opiate addicts. At this time, the composition of the active ingredients in marijuana was different than in today's coffee shop grasses. These contain up to over 20% THC, but less than 0.2% CBD. Before the age of international drug bans, there was also cannabis or hashish derived from it with a high THC content. Here, however, was significantly more CBD included. Furthermore, there were many cannabis or hashish varieties in which the content of THC and CBD was almost balanced. CBD defuses the dangers of THC, which is very pure and in high concentrations can be unpleasant even for healthy consumers. Cannabidiol can generally be helpful in weaning substances and cushioning the effects of withdrawal. CBD can also reduce the addiction pressure when craving for potent cannabis. Many strong cannabis smokers have already helped enough without consuming tobacco, as nicotine stimulates one to consume constantly. Those who consume cannabis tobacco-free tend to consume more consciously and thus less frequently, less easily and less problematically.  Source: BRUNGERT, Robert.

CBD in Headache - Can Cannabidiol Help with Migraine?

Around 54 million Germans suffer phases of headache at some point in their lives. With a share of 90 percent, tension headaches and migraines are most common. Although over-the-counter analgesics are usually the first attempt at therapy, they also bring with them unpleasant side effects. Whether CBD oil can serve as an alternative or a supplement here is explained below: What types of headaches are there?Linguistically, we make few differences between different types of headaches - but medically there are clear classifications. First of all, experts distinguish between primary headache, which stands alone as a symptom, and secondary headache, which is a symptom of comorbidities. Common types of headaches are the following: Tension headache: The pain does not pulsate, but pushes and cramps the sides of the head. Often the pain occurs in symmetrical patterns. Tension headaches are not associated with nausea and vomiting.Migraine: Here the pain occurs unilaterally and pulsates. Physical activity aggravates the symptoms. Those affected also suffer from sensitivity to light and noise, nausea and vomiting.Cluster headache: Here, the pain attacks occur up to 8 times a day in a duration of 15 minutes to 3 hours. Those affected suffer from unilateral pain, usually in the eye area, and have the urge to move. Reddened, watery eyes and a runny or stuffy nose are further side effects.CBD in migraine - many sufferers recommend cannabidiolEspecially on the Internet, there are several reports from migraine sufferers who report that CBD significantly improved their quality of life. In contrast, the picture is not so clear in research: Although some study results suggest that medical cannabis could alleviate migraine, the studies for CBD as a single preparation are lacking. In 2016, however, some scientists put forward a thesis that wants to explain not only the pain in migraine, but also the symptoms of fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. According to them, all symptoms could be due to a lack of body-produced cannabinoids (endocannabinoids). The syndrome is therefore called chronic cannabinoid deficiency (CED = Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome).  The supply of herbal cannabinoids from the outside, especially CBD, could reduce the symptoms of migraine, according to the researchers. Including all studies to date indicates that cannabinoids, especially THC and CBD, have beneficial effects in the treatment of pain. In particular, this also applies to migraine and other types of headache.  For tension-type headaches, CBD may also be suitable for the causes. Because these headaches often result from the tension of the neck or masticatory muscles. These muscles harden when we work many hours a day in front of the computer and also with people who grind their teeth at night. Here, stress can be a triggering factor. Relaxation techniques, sports as well as natural dietary supplements such as CBD are suitable as preventative measures. The fact that cannabidiol can reduce anxiety and stress, especially in public situations, proved the results of scientific studies several times.  What are the benefits of CBD as a dietary supplement?Many headache sufferers often resort to over-the-counter analgesics such as acetylsalicylic acid and ibuprofen. In particular, the latter carries the risk of stomach pain and in the worst case even stomach bleeding. Therefore, medics usually prescribe the analgesic only in concert with a gastric acid blocker (e.g., omeprazole). Migraine sufferers who prescribe painkillers themselves, however, often do not think of the possible side effects. CBD is in its form as a dietary supplement, however, free of side effects. His tolerated maximum dose is, according to scientific experiments, well beyond the dosage recommendations of the manufacturers. Who wants to try as a headache patient to increase his well-being with CBD, must therefore not worry about possible risks and side effects. With one exception: If you take medications prescribed by the doctor due to migraine or other underlying conditions, you should ask a physician for possible interactions with CBD. Source: CBD bei Kopfschmerzen – kann Cannabidiol bei Migräne helfen? 1 [online].

CBD in atopic dermatitis

Neurodermatitis sets in from the point where the epidermal skin barrier is broken by injury or irritation. Allergens are more common and cause defense reactions. These have inflammatory and itchy effects, further scratching the epidermal skin barrier and allowing even more allergens to invade. The treatment aims to soothe the skin so that the epidermal skin barrier to the body works as well as possible. Since atopic eczema is intensified by many factors, the patient or his parents should pay attention to many details. CBD, hempseed oil or, if possible, THC in skin care creams are just a few aspects of the treatment. Since other cannabinoids or even terpenes and flavonoids may have soothing effects, as far as possible even a full extract of the cannabis flowers should be selected as an ingredient for the skin cream. Why can CBD help with atopic dermatitis?Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid, which is frequently found in higher concentrations in the cannabis plant and has a very wide range of uses. It can have a calming and sleep-inducing effect. However, it also superficially reduces the misguided immune system, which lessens the response to invading allergens. But also the antibacterial effect and the slowed down bacterial growth can significantly help the patient, if the rugged skin is not affected by further problems. CBC and CBG can also help fight fungal infections should they find their skin reddened and scratched. All this makes CBD an interesting ingredient in skincare creams for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. It could be purchased as an extract on the web to add to a well-considered skin care cream. But it can also be purchased directly a CBD cream for skin treatment. Cannabidiol, like tetrahydrocannabinol, can significantly help with various skin conditions. THC relieves the pain, but has only a regional effect on the external application without causing a high. Follow several approachesAtopic dermatitis is a disease that still leaves many puzzles. Thus, the individual "stress factors" on different patients can have different influence. A diet shift away from saccharified treats to more original and healthier ingredients can be an important treatment step. Also, adding a good vitamin B complex can help. It can also be helpful to mix the hemp seed oil not only under the creams or to use directly hemp seed oil creams. This edible oil or the hemp seeds that contain it should also be part of the daily diet. Hemp seed oil has a very good ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids, only then it can optimally help the skin or the body. The hemp seed oil contains alpha-linolenic acid as omega 3 fatty acid with up to approx. 29% of the fatty acids. The linoleic acid as omega 6 fatty acid is 50 to 60%, the oleic acid as omega 9 fatty acid in 10 to 15%. These are very valuable, polyunsaturated essential fatty acids, which, however, are optimal for the body only in the right proportion to each other due to the partly opposite effect. For humans, a ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids of 2 to 5 to 1 is very good. This ratio is usually not achieved in the usual diet, already a teaspoon of hemp seed oil or a tablespoon of hemp seed can help the diet, more does not hurt. Furthermore, it may be attempted to use more pleasant textile fabrics and furniture or to use a room air filter with UVC and water purification. Where there are fewer allergens, the defense response may be lower. With a little luck you will grow out of eczema. However, atopic eczema should not be underestimated, as it occurs four to six times more frequently in many industrialized countries than it did 80 years ago. This may not be the peak before the frequency returns to normal. Source: BRUNGERT, Robert. CBD bei Neurodermitis. 30 Apr 2018,.
