As a single-molecule compound, CBD has delivered impressive neuroprotective results in preclinical experiments. But let’s not forget about THC, given that TBI patients who tested positive for THC did better than TBI patients who abstained from cannabis.
The entourage effect is real. CBD works even better when combined with THC and other constituents of the cannabis plant. Beyond CBD and THC, dozens of cannabis components with specific medical attributes interact synergistically so that the therapeutic impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum if its parts.
For many TBI patients, it’s late in the game and the clock is ticking. A phytocannabinoid remedy that combines CBD and THC and acts at multiple targets simultaneously would seem to be an ideal therapeutic candidate to treat TBI. Thus far, however, there have been no FDA-sanctioned clinical trials to ascertain the efficacy of whole plant, CBD-rich cannabis oil for traumatic brain injury.
A pathology as complex as a stroke or a traumatic brain injury can benefit from a multifaceted treatment regimen that encompasses a combination of healing modalities, including:
Whole plant cannabis oil. CBD-rich extracts with as much THC as a person is comfortable with. Terpenes. Cannabis products and strains with beta-caryophyllene and terpinolene. Diet. A high fat/low carbohydrate/low sugar diet with plenty of leafy greens, omega 3 oils (DHA, EPA), and fermented foods (probiotics). Nutritional supplements and antioxidants. Magnesium, vitamin D, curcumin, glutathione – and melatonin to restore circadian rhythms and sleep. Ancient therapies. Acupuncture, exercise ( @msathletics ), and caloric restriction (fasting), which increase endocannabinoid levels. Modern therapies. Neurofeedback, low-level laser therapy (photobiomodulation), hyperbaric oxygen ( @invictusproject1 ), transcranial direct current stimulation, flotation tank therapy ( @restfloat ) and hypothermia (cooling).
