The research into cannabinoids continues to show promise in the future treatment of a number of ailments. Cannabinoids are a diverse family of fascinating compounds which directly or indirectly have an effect on the endocannabinoid system.
Phytocannabinoids function in a number of different ways in terms of health and disease. Current treatments focus on an individual cannabinoid or a small number of cannabinoids, with each showing great potential in their respective fields.
Our research will investigate the possibility of combination therapy, whereby a large number of different non-psychotropic cannabinoids will be administered for a more effective treatment. The concentration of each cannabinoid which gives its respective peak result will also be investigated. These peak concentrations will be elucidated through tissue culture techniques on specific cell lines and subsequent assays designed to quantify a cannabinoid’s effect.
