Toxicity/OverdoseCannabis Opioids


Cannabis an antidepressant
Cannabis, an Antidepressant

  • Depression is a presenting feature of chronic disease pain.

  • Worsened by sedatives that decrease mobility and functionality

  • Not a sedative, cannabis increases mobility and functioning

  • Cannabis improves and normalizes sleep

  • Facilitates gastrointestinal functioning


Immunomodulator analgesic
Immunomodulator-Analgesic

  • Cannabinoids, unique non-watersoluble precursors of eicosanoids modulate both generalized and local inflammatory reactions through the prostaglandin systems.

  • Arthritic and neuritic inflammatory processes are relieved.

  • Involved in control of spasticity of inflammatory etiology


Antispasmodic
Antispasmodic

  • Both smooth and skeletal muscle spasm are eased by cannabis.

  • Peristalsis and glandular functioning are normalized by cannabis.

  • Both relief of spasm and promoting normal peristalsis and evacuation.


Cannabis an easement

  • Not a narcotic

  • A mood modulator, a calmative that restores control at optimum dose.

  • Not a sedative when inhaled at low dose

  • An immunomodulator for generalized and local inflammatory processes

  • Antispasmodic smooth and skeletal muscle relaxant


Chronic disease pain control
Chronic Disease Pain Control

  • A mood modulator that both decreases emotional reactivity and vulnerability to pain by:

    • Controlling the immediate target symptom

    • Modulating emotional response
