Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic condition that causes seizures and a progressive loss of neurological function. It is a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder caused by an inherited genetic mutation. The genetic mutation causes damage to striatal and cortical neurons. The disease is slowly progressive and patients have difficulty moving, involuntary tremors, reduced cognitive function, and psychiatric disturbances. Other symptoms include; balance problems, insomnia, dystonia (muscle spasms), depression and fatigue.
Huntington’s disease has no known cure and drug treatments are mostly ineffective. Could cannabinoids be the answer for Huntington’s sufferers? It is common knowledge that cannabinoids are packed with anti-anxiety, antidepressant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. CBD works in conjunction with our endocannabinoid system to promote the natural release of cannabinoids. This helps regulate the body’s homeostasis, including appetite, mood, sleep pattern, pain, and immune system response. The endocannabinoid system is closely linked to the progression of Huntington’s disease. The researchers found that early in the disease, cannabinoid receptors massively disappear in striatal neurons.
It has been shown that when the CB1 receptor is activated, CBD can relieve specific motor symptoms associated with the disease, such as tremors and involuntary movements. One of the main side effects of Huntington’s is anxiety and depression. Antidepressant medications come with many side effects and the risk of addiction. CBD has been shown to offer relief for those suffering from anxiety and depression, and without any side effects. Research shows that cannabinoids are safe and tolerable in patients with this disease. A study published in 2009 showed that cannabis helped slow the progression of Huntington’s disease. Additionally, the cannabinoid CBG can activate PPAR-gamma receptors in affected nerve tissue, relieving inflammation and other symptoms.
How to take CBD OIL for Huntington’s Disease?
Now we know how the Natural CBD Oil elaborated by Laboratorios Canalanza can help you with most of the common symptoms.
Our suggestion is to start using our CBD oil Canalanza with 3-5 drops. Starting in the morning, before breakfast and under the tongue.
Leave the oil to dissolve with saliva for at least one minute.
Put 2-3 drops before having lunch and another 3-5 at night half an hour before going to sleep.
For better results increase with 1-2 drops in the morning dosage and 2-3 at night.
Our CBD oil has a natural flavor due to the Extra Virgin Olive Oil used as the base.
Remember that a high dosage of CBD oil will not be more effective, its just the opposite. Much CBD on your body will not be absorbed by the organism and as it comes in it will be going out. So a properly dosage is the most important thing when you are taking CBD oil. Ask always to your doctor about CBD and follow the recommended dosage. If you have any doubts you can ask us at our WhatsApp number support. We are always available to help you.
