Fibromyalgia or fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic health issue that is manifested with sleep disorders, cognitive impairment, mood disorders, fatigue, articular and muscular pain. Even though the real cause of fibromyalgia syndrome is now known yet, it is supposed that the improper functioning of the central nervous system contributes to it.
The latest research suggests there are a few possible treatments of fibromyalgia, but cannabis, also known as hemp or marijuana, is the most effective.
The legalization of marijuana in most countries has created countless perspectives and ancient ideas for its use, enlarging the range of marijuana products. The evidence showing that cannabis is an effective remedy for numerous chronic and painful health conditions is indisputable.
In fact, it has been used to treat irritable bowel syndrome, and symptoms, like constipation, abdominal pain, bloating and chronic cramping. In addition, cannabis is considered to be much more effective than the conventional pain relievers.
Moreover, the cannabis chewing gum, produced by MedChewRx, is a revolutionary pharmaceutical product that effectively relieves chronic pain, particularly fibromyalgia pain.
The cannabis chewing gum has equal amounts of THC (tetrahidrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidol), a non-psychoactive ingredient that relieves pain by hindering the pain receptors in the body.
The cannabis chewing gum is much more effective than smoking, because it sidesteps the liver. When CB comes in contact with the saliva, it enters the bloodstream and is not processed by other internal organs in the body.
The cannabis chewing gum has numerous benefits for pain sufferers, including:
- Enhances the age-based cognitive decline
- Improves the function of the cardiovascular system
- Has neuro-stimulatory and neuroprotective effects on the mind
- Reduces stress levels
Socially, cannabis chewing gum is more accepted than smoking, as pain sufferers can sooth their pain anywhere and anytime. It is thought that it soothes pain and treats its symptoms efficiently, particularly fibromyalgia pain.
Now, Axim Biotechnologies, the company that came up with the product, is testing its effects, but claims that the product will be available to buy the next year. It would be the first medical cannabis chewing gum, approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
