Cannabis contains 200 aromatic molecule varieties called terpenes that may manifest in a particular example of the cannabis, one of them is called delta 3 carene (also called alpha-carene or simply carene), which is apparently awesome for promoting good health and even possibly repairing broken bones.
Delta 3 carene can apparently provide significant qualities to combat systemic inflammation, repair diseased and damaged bones. Strains of cannabis rich in the delta 3 carene have also been found to benefit those with arthritis, fibromyalgia, and Alzheimer’s disease. This terpene is found most commonly in strains of cannabis, which is good news for cannabis smokers, especially those who grow their own and do their research on which strains are the best.
Research has shown that terpenes such as delta 3 carene can be beneficial. A 1989 study entitled “Comparative Study of Different Essential Oils of Bupleurum Gibraltaricum Lamarck” that was published in the journal Europe PMC investigated the anti-inflammatory properties of delta 3 carene and concluded “the essential oil of the Cázulas Mountains population was most active against acute inflammation owing to its high delta 3-carene content.”
A 2007 study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research tested 89 natural compounds for their ability to maintain bone repair, deal with bone disease, and promote overall healthy bones with some promising results.
In 2009, one study from Scotland conducted on mice hypothesized that since endocannabinoids are produced in the bones, administering cannabinoids could help to regulate your bone metabolism. These means that bones would re-generate their tissues by replacing old cells with new ones, a vital function that keeps bones healthy and strong.
Another study, found that THC activates the body’s CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. The CB2 receptor assists in the formation of bones and helps to prevent age-related bone atrophy. So, it makes sense, doesn’t it?
That’s not all, a 2015 study found that using CBD could help heal fractured bones, it was a study conducted by researchers from Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University in Israel, and published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.
These studies were animal studies, it’s also important to mention the other side of the coin. For example a more recent study from 2017 used human participants and examined the relationship between cannabis use and bone mass density, no association was found there.
With that being said, the research is definitely very promising, and the fact that medical marijuana has been illegal for so long, and is still illegal in many states and places across the world, this has prohibited science from studying it in depth.
There is no doubt at all that the healing potential of this plant is implicated in a wide variety of human ailments, from physical to mental, which is why so many people who use it for medicinal purposes experience so much success with with.
