American scientists allocated financial resources to study the analgesic properties of hemp

26.03.2020

The grant that will be awarded over the next five years will be aimed at studying how terpenes and cannabinoids interact with each other. In particular, two terpenes of myrcene and beta-caryophyllene will be studied during the study . As part of the experiment, the compounds will be administered separately in order to determine whether they can reduce pain on their own. In addition, the above terpenes will be used to treat patients with cannabinoids in order to determine whether they improve the cannabinoid analgesic properties. The possibility of using terpenes to reduce the dose of opioids needed to relieve pain will be considered separately during research.

A research  team from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) received a $ 3.9 million grant to study how cannabis is involved in pain relief . A grant from the National Center for Complementary and Integral Health of the National Institutes of Health was awarded to Ziva Cooper, the head of the Hemp Plant Properties Research Group at UCLA. 

Ms. Cooper plans to primarily use grant resources to examine whether hemp terpenes can reduce the amount of opium drugs used by patients to reduce pain. Specialists of the research team led by Zive Cooper believe that terpenes, which are responsible for the characteristic aromas and tastes of hemp, can improve the analgesic properties of cannabinoids, while reducing the potential for unwanted side effects. 

Can terpenes relieve pain?

The grant that will be awarded over the next five years will be aimed at studying how terpenes and cannabinoids interact with each other. In particular, two terpenes of myrcene and beta-caryophyllene will be studied during the study . As part of the experiment, the compounds will be administered separately in order to determine whether they can reduce pain alone. In addition, the above terpenes will be used to treat patients with cannabinoids in order to determine whether they improve the cannabinoid analgesic properties. The possibility of using terpenes to reduce the dose of opioids needed to relieve pain will be considered separately during research. In particular, during a published press release, Ms. Cooper emphasized that this type of research is important because it is exploring ways to reduce the use of opioid drugs for pain management, which is an important public health priority. Specific hemp plant substances used in extracted form or as a “ green plant mass ” can be effective options for this kind of activity, with the least possible side effects. Therefore, placebo-controlled studies to study the above area of ​​knowledge are essential.

The above grant for the study of the healing properties of hemp is already the second in a row provided by Ms. Cooper over the past few months. In the fall of 2019, she already received a grant of $ 3.5 million for research on how men and women react differently to pain medications and what are the side effects of using various cannabinoids used during treatment. 

In our country, not only research is being conducted aimed at exploring the possibilities of effective use of the healing properties of therapeutic hemp technical hemp , but also obtained extremely interesting results. Unfortunately, due to the lack of development of national legislation and the impossibility of the use of data research for commercial use at this time in our country , the results of the experiments provided by foreign partners, and most likely in a few years in Ukraine will be from abroad to do food , cosmetics , biologically active and feed additives or pharmacological preparations made on the basis of exclusive characteristics introduced in the state budget pp varieties of Ukraine "Mriy" , manufactured by technology developed by Ukrainian scientists .
