2AG

2AG is a major endocannabinoid produced from lipids in cellular membranes, mostly but not exclusively in response to cellular activity.

Psychosis and Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder that affects around 1% of the worldwide population. It causes psychotic behaviors, social and emotional disruptions and different cognitive impairments.

The causes of the disease are still not clear but studies show that both genetic and environmental factors have an effect on it.

Epilepsy

cannabinoids have excellent therapeutic potential in epilepsy. In the brain, cannabinoids tend to keep neuronal activity wihtin acceptable boundaries.

Pain

pain is a very good target for therapeutic cannabinoids.

Bone cancer

Bone cancers result from primary tumor invasion to bone. cannabinoids can be used to relieve Bone Cancer pain through their anti-inflammatory properties and also they could be used to treat cancer itself.

Parkinson's

Parkinson's Disease is a degenerative disorder of the nervous system marked by accelerated degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons in the Substantia Nigra in the brain.

Typical symptoms of Parkinson's Disease , such as (intentional) tremor, rigidity and slowness of movement are mostly ascribed to degenerating Substantia Nigra neurons.

Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease and the main cause of dementia. Main common symptoms of dementia are related with memory but other cognitive processes are affected during the development of the disease.

Stroke

A Stroke is marked by reduced blood flow to the brain. This reduction can be due to a blocked blood vessle (ischaemia) or a ruptured blood vessle (aneurism). Either way, as a result (part of) the brain is deprived of oxygen and nutrients which in turn causes neuronal degradation and cognitive decline.

PTSD

There is evidence that cannabis/cannabinoids can be used to treat PTSD and to prevent its development. To date, most evidence points towards THC and CBD and their function to speed up the extinction of fear memories.

Psoriasis

psoriasis is an auto-immune disease characterized by itchy skin lesions. psoriasis arises when the immune system mistakenly identifies skin cells as foreign matter and causes over-production of new skin cells.
