Certain compounds in cannabis can actually be used to improve the health of bones by reversing bone loss processes, regulating bone tissue regeneration, and even speeding up the healing of fractures. For example, 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.
A little more info on Cannnabis and bone health:
Scientific evidence from both lab research and human trials suggests that the whole cannabis compounds have therapeutic action in the treatment of these kinds of chronic pain. This 2014 study continues the research on the role of the endocannabinoid system in the perception of pain in osteoarthritis conditions, while this 2016 research indicates that topical CBD applications actually relief arthritis pains and inflammation without causing evident adverse effects.
We also have studies indicating that our nerves are full with cannabinoid receptors, and that peripheral CB1 receptors may be important targets in controlling osteoarthritis pain. The cannabinoid receptors are today targets for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis pain treatments, as confirmed by this 2008 study. This 2014 study proves the involvement of the endocannabinoid system in modulating osteoarthritis pain. The CBD receptor CB2 also regulates pain responses in osteoarthritis of the knee joint, according to this 2013 research. (source)
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.
