Bladder cancer

Bladder cancers develop from the epithelial lining of the urinary bladder. cannabinoid receptors in the human Bladder Cancer cells could be targeted to treat the disease, but more research is needed in this field.

Autism

autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior.

Diabetes

diabetes has two major forms: Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune disorder where insulin-producing β-cells in the pancreatic Islets of Langerhans are attacked by the body's immune system resulting in reduced insulin production.

Huntington's

Huntington's disease is a genetic neurodegenerative disorder, marked by preferential degeneration of neurons in the basal ganglia (caudate and putamen) and accompanied by motor deficits, cognitive impairment and psychiatric symptoms.

AIDS

The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. HIV/AIDS attacks cells of the immune system making the body more susceptible to infections and tumors.

COPD

COPD is a chronic lung disease. To date, no cure exists for COPD and therefore most treatments focus on reducing symptoms and suppressing discomfort.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is one of the diseases where a therapeutic role for cannabinoids has been investigated for a long time.

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.

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.

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.
