Research has consistently shown that cannabis
A topical cannabis spray that helps treat skin conditions is in development
and a solution for acute cannabis overdoses may soon be underway

What can’t cannabis do for your health?
Research has reported that cannabis can help with many ailments from mental health to gut health.
There is even a bustling cannabis beauty sector
But cannabis for skin health, unfortunately, is largely underreported.
Thankfully, help may be on the way
A new topical spray is in development that will hopefully tackle inflammatory skin issues such as atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis.
The product is a result of a partnership between Israeli company Cannasure and Swedish pharmaceutical brand Lipidor who specializes in dermatology. Cannasure plans to utilize Lipidor’s existing formulation and add cannabinoids that can target these aggravating skin issues.
Next in news,
Now that cannabis legalization is expanding rapidly across the country, the rate of ER visits due to cannabis has more than tripled in the last decade.
These ER visits are largely made up of people who have overconsumed cannabis edibles.
An overdose simply means you took too much of something, it doesn’t always necessarily mean that it’s lethal.
Anyone who has eaten cannabis edibles will tell you that when you consume too much THC, it can certainly create intense discomfort
but it always passes.
But an even quicker solution may soon be on the horizon for those who aren’t willing to wait out the high
A company in San Diego has been awarded an $850,000 grant to produce an injectable form of a drug called Drinabant, to help treat an acute cannabis overdose.
At this time, Drinabant can only be taken orally but that delivery method takes too long for the body to absorb for it to be of any help.
Drinabant is thought to work by binding to the CB1 receptors and replacing THC and other cannabinoids to help reverse the effect of too much THC.
So, why even develop something like this if a cannabis overdose isn’t lethal?
Well, let’s not forget about synthetic cannabinoids which pose a more severe threat.
K2 and Spice notoriously cause overdoses that can turn deadly because they are often made of unknown artificial chemicals that’s sprayed on plant matter which, then, is sold illicitly.
Though natural cannabinoids are significantly less harmful than synthetics, they both still bind to the brain’s cannabinoid receptors in the same fashion.
So, something like Drinabant will certainly come in handy in this instance.
It’s a great thing to not only see this plant becoming normalized but to witness the great things that research is uncovering.
