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.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is described as a sensation of hearing sounds without any external source. This sensation can be similar to hear ringing, clicking, hissing or other sounds. Tinnitus can interfere with concentration and sleep and can cause Anxiety, depression and suicide attempt.

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.

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.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the development of cancer in the prostate.

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.

Pain

Pain is a very good target for therapeutic cannabinoids. Many endocannabinoids, plant cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors have been linked to pain management or analgesia.

Obesity

Energy homeostasis (balance)  is one of the primary functions of the endocannabinoid system.

Migraine

Migraine is a chronic neurological disorder that is mostly characterized by severe headaches and aura.

MDMA intoxication

Although not exactly a disease, MDMA intoxication occurs after ingesting MDMA and typically comes with dysphoria, agitation or Insomnia.

MDMA interferes with the clearance of serotonin, dopamine and adrenalin/epinephrin from the brain, causing their levels to rise and ultimately leads to the serotonin syndrome.
