New Study: Marijuana can heal broken bones

New Study: Marijuana can heal broken bones.

MARIJUANA helps broken bones heal faster, a
new study has found. The Times of Israel reports that researchers at Tel Aviv University, Israel, found that rats with broken bones healed much quicker when given the non-psychotic marijuana component, cannabidiol or CBD.

The study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research on Thursday found that the
bones not only healed quicker, but were also
stronger and more resilient against a repeated
fracture, meaning the bones treated with
marijuana were much less likely to break again.
The scientists behind the research believe that
this is due to a connection between cannabinoid
receptors in the human body and the stimulation
of bone growth.

Dr. Yankel Gabet from Tel Aviv’s Bone Research
Laboratory told the Times of Israel: “We found
CBD alone to be sufficiently effective in enhancing
fracture healing. Other studies have shown CBD
to be a safe agent, which leads us to believe we
should continue this line of study in clinical trials
to assess its usefulness in improving human
fracture healing.”
