The medical world has over the past few years been showing as much interest in a study of the cannabis plant, alternatively known as marijuana. In fact, you will as well realize that there are those countries and states where the medical marijuana has already been availed for the treatment of certain medical conditions. This plant and its properties has actually been well established to be a very effective pain reliever. On top of the fact that the plant has shown a sure degree of success as a reliever of pains from cancer and the loss of appetite, its analgesic qualities have as well made it a very sure reliever for most of the pains that seem to never end such as back pains and the fibromyalgia symptoms. Here is the manner that the cannabis plant and its properties actually work to relieve your pains.
In the same way that the opioid receptor system in our bodies allows the endorphins to have their effects on the body such as pain relieving effects, our bodies as well have a cannabinoid receptor system. There ae basically three forms of the cannabinoids and they are such as the endocannabinoids which are made by the body, the phytocannabinoids which are produced by the marijuana plants and the artificial cannabinoids which are produced in the laboratories. The phytocannabinoids in fact are existing in such huge numbers and all of the specific variants of the cannabinoids have their own qualities. However, for the sake of this assessment we will be particular with some few such as the tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, cannabidiol, CBD, and the beta-caryophyllene. The THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, component in the cannabinoids composition in the marijuana plant is known for being the major psychoactive element in the plant and is as well a soft pain reliever. On the other hand, the CBD has shown a lot of effectiveness when it is used as a reliever of the effects such as spasms, inflammations, nausea and anxiety. For the strongest of the anti-inflammatory cannabinoids in the cannabis plants, the beta-caryophyllene which is found in its highest concentrations in the cannabis oils.
What we have seen from the recent researches has actually shown that when one suffers from fibromyalgia always has the brain process the information on the pain way abnormally and or may be the case that there is an excessive signals of the pain sent to the brain. If you raise the amount of cannabinoids available to the body, you will have an easy way to thwart the pain of fibromyalgia.
