Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by severe pain and pressure on tender points of the human body. It also includes many other symptoms, such as fatigue, cognitive impairment, mood disorders, sleep problems, and more.
Even though there isn’t a known cure for this health issue, some people use medicinal cannabis to help alleviate their symptoms. The latest research shows that there’re a few possible treatments for this chronic condition, but cannabis is definitely the safest and most powerful treatment.
Many studies have proven that cannabis is a great alternative for pharmaceutical painkillers.
Namely, the product, called MedChewRx, is actually a cannabis-infused gum. In addition, it’s been designed and developed by a pharmaceutical company, AMIX Biotech, dedicated to all things cannabinoid bioscience.
The company is, without a doubt, cornering the niche market on innovative ways to develop medicinal THC and CBD products, which do not require inhaling smoke.
The chewing gum possesses cannabinoids and helps relieve chronic pain, particularly fibromyalgia. It contains 5 mg each of THC, i.e., tetrahydrocannabinol and CBD, i.e., cannabidiol. The latter is a non-psychoactive ingredient that could act as a blocker against signals sent by the brain’s pain receptors. The most important thing is that it can relieve the pain without making you ˮhighˮ.
Furthermore, the chewing gum is also more effective than smoking since it can bypass your liver. Additionally, the cannabidiol reacts with your saliva to rapidly enter your bloodstream without getting processed by other internal organs.
It goes without saying that cannabis is a godsend when it comes to providing pain relief. It could help relieve the symptoms of other chronic conditions similar to fibromyalgia, including Crohn’s Disease and arthritis.
The chewing gum may also help reduce stress and improve your cardiovascular health. It may also have neuroprotective and neurostimulatory effects on your brain and prevent age-related cognitive decline.
The company points out that the chewing gum will be available for purchase next year.
