La Universidad de Sevilla investiga el uso del aceite de cannabis para combatir la fibromialgia

Podría recuperar capacidades cognitivas, disminuir la percepción del dolor y normalizar el tono muscular


La ciencia todavía no ha encontrado un tratamiento para curar la fibromialgia, un trastorno que causa dolor crónico, fatiga y problemas de memoria y que afecta especialmente a las mujeres.

De momento, lo único que se ha podido hacer es aliviar los síntomas. Y en eso se encuentra trabajando precisamente el Grupo de Investigación de Plantas Medicinales de la Universidad de Sevilla. Y el cannabis es su principal elemento de estudio.

Están analizando si el aceite obtenido de las semillas podría servir para aliviar las problemáticas asociadas a la enfermedad debido a su rico contenido en omega 3 y omega 6.

De hecho, el aceite de cannabis sativa L administrado a ratones con fibromialgia provoca una recuperación de sus capacidades cognitivas, una reducción de la percepción de dolor y una normalización de su tono muscular. También es eficaz para síntomas asociados como la ansiedad, la depresión y la inflamación.

En la investigación también se han usado otros aceites, como el de girasol u oliva, pero no se han obtenido los mismos resultados que con el de cannabis, probablemente por su diferente proporción en ácidos grasos, según los investigadores.

Edibles enjoy a healthy chunk of the cannabis marketplace — for all of 2016, for example, the category captured 12 percent of the $2.41 billion marketplace within Colorado, Washington and Oregon on $282.02 million in sales. That’s an increase of 61.3 percent, in terms of sales, compared to 2015 according to BDS Analytics‘ GreenEdge service, one of the leading sources of cannabis data in the world.

When we look at the mass of edibles purchased in the three states, the top three broad categories gunning for market share finished the year at 42 percent for candy, 20 percent for chocolate and 11 percent for infused foods.

But consumers in different markets go their own way when it comes to the cannabis-infused foods they eat.

Colorado consumers go crazy for candy.

During the first quarter of 2017 in Colorado, for example, consumers spent $55.64 million on edibles, up 50.4 percent from the same quarter last year. Nearly half of sales went to candy, at 46 percent. In fairly distant second place was chocolates, at 21 percent. Third place? Infused foods, at 8 percent.

Oregonians prefer chocolate, and they love tinctures.

Oregonians’ edibles purchased diverged significantly from those purchased by Coloradans during the quarter. Beaver State consumers preferred chocolate, which garnered 37 percent of the $11 million in edibles sales, to candy, at 34 percent. Tinctures captured third place, with 17 percent of the market. Infused foods stood at 7 percent.

Tinctures are popular in Washington.

Meanwhile, consumers in Washington during the first two months of 2017 split the difference between Colorado and Oregon, with 30 percent of $5.7 million in sales going to candy, 21 percent to chocolate and 15 percent to tinctures.

One of the interesting differences between Colorado and the Pacific Northwest in general is the popularity of tinctures in Washington and Oregon, where tinctures grab 17 percent and 15 percent, respectively, of the edibles market. In Colorado, tinctures capture just 7 percent of the market. That is up from 4 percent of the edibles market during the first quarter of 2015 in Colorado, so the category is growing. But it still lags far behind Pacific Northwest market share.

David Friedman to Lead Lighting Science® Horticulture Division

WEST WARWICK, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lighting Science announces the appointment of David Friedman as President of VividGro®, the horticultural division of Lighting Science Group Corporation, a leader in advanced applications of LED technology. Lighting Science’s mission is to bring life-changing products in human health, agriculture, and infrastructure to market. Their extensive technology and intellectual property portfolio includes nearly 400 LED technology patents, from biological circadian LED technology solutions to VividGro’s expanding range of products for cannabis and indoor agriculture.

Friedman is no stranger to the cannabis industry. An industry veteran and experienced venture capitalist, he founded Panther Funds in 2014, which has invested in 20 cannabis companies. He is also the former CEO of MJIC, which was initially a venture fund for the cannabis space. Friedman successfully managed the company’s restructuring in 2015/2016 into a diversified operating company in the cannabis space and co-created the current algorithm for the MJIC Marijuana Stock Index. MJIC is expected to IPO on the ASX in August of 2017. His background also includes 25 years as an investment and operating executive in venture capital, mergers & acquisitions and corporate finance.

“It’s a privilege to be able to lead such an experienced and accomplished team,” said Friedman. “The years of research and development, strong investment partners and product acceptance in the market are unique in the nascent cannabis space. The commitment by LSGC to dedicate these resources to the VividGro division validates the tremendous opportunity our industry represents.”

Lighting Science has long been investing in the research and development of urban agriculture, including working with NASA for almost a decade and the U.S. Scientific Research Station to establish indoor food production at the South Pole. Since establishing VividGro in 2014, LSG’s offerings have remained one of the most popular products in cannabis and large-scale indoor farming production. Lighting Science was one of the first LED companies to offer an energy efficient alternative to high pressure sodium (HPS) lighting. Their patented VividGro LED lamp is proven to increase yields by up to 20% while using 45% less energy. In addition, unlike other LED grow lights, VividGro distinguishes itself by creating a “white light” working environment for grow house employees. These commercial LED solutions are highly adaptable to both urban and agricultural environments, including greenhouses of any scale.

The VividGro team will be led by Friedman and Emil Radkov, a veteran of the horticultural lighting industry. Backing them up are a team of scientists and sales and marketing executives who all have lighting industry and cannabis industry experience. Friedman will be expanding the team over the coming months as they look to continue their aggressive growth strategy.
