Patients With Insomnia Experienced Sleep Improvements When Using Cannabis



Read in Spanish

Researchers from the Department of Psychology at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque used a software application for the first time to measure which characteristics of the raw cannabis flower are associated with changes in insomnia.

The use of cannabis flowers in people affected by insomnia helped to reduce the disorder and facilitate sleep in each of them. But researchers from the United States associate this improvement with the type of therapeutic effects of some classes of cannabis genetics studied.

The sample of 409 patients completed 1056 medical cannabis administration sessions where each of them cataloged the severity of their insomnia before and after the sessions.

“The administration of medicinal cannabis measured the before and after, as well as, the side effects, characteristics of the product including the method of combustion, types of cannabis and contents of cannabinoids,” says the research.

Within the results it was found that the use of pipes and vaporizers are associated with greater relaxation and more positive effects when compared to cannabis cigarettes. Vaporizing did not report side effects.

“Although cannabidiol (CBD) was statistically associated with greater relief than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but cannabinoid levels were not related to different results at a general level,” says the methodological table.

The conclusions state that medicinal flowers / buds of cannabis are associated with significant improvements in the profiles studied.

“Patients reported different types of effectiveness and side effects such as euphoria, depend on the characteristics of the flowers,” the study concludes.

The use of cannabis is associated with a significant reduction in the onset of diabetes

Read in Spanish

The relationship between cannabis and diabetes is a riddle. Although cannabis users versus non-users should theoretically be more likely to have diabetes, epidemiological studies suggest otherwise.

This is an analysis that researchers from the Institute of Medical Sciences of the University of Toronto, Canada, have reached after studying the data provided by the Canadian National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions.

“The relationship between the use of cannabis in diabetes was examined taking into account a long series of factors, including mental disorders,” says the study.

From the exams where they compared sociodemographic aspects, physical, mental health and lifestyle between diabetics and non-diabetics.

Measures that showed statistical significance in these tests were later included in the analyzes to quantify the relationships between lifelong and 12-month cannabis use and diabetes.

The results showed that in cannabis users there was a decrease in the probability of getting diabetes.

“It is concluded that a decrease in the probability of diabetes in cannabis users versus non-users was identified after taking into account the variants, including mental health.”

Before the protective effects of cannabis can be suggested, further epidemiological studies are needed, as well as exposure of better and innovative exposure measurements and statistical analyzes.
