The plant cannabis was used for thousands of years in different cultures around the world for various purposes, including medicine . The plant has different active ingredients, called Cannabinoids. These Cannabinoids , in a number of more than 60, have different functions, some discovered, and mostly without yet being clear what purpose is. Cannabinoids, being inside the plant are called Phytocannabinoids.
The human body possesses on the surface of many types of cells in our body, specific sites where these active ingredients are coupled of the plant, phytocannabinoids. The most common, and of which more information is available are the THC, CBD, CBG, CBN among more than 100 discovered to this day. The receptors of these cannabinoids are called CB1 and CB2, being distributed throughout the body. The human body too produces molecules similar to those of the cannabis plant, called endocannabinoids (endo=inside).
Cannabinoids have medicinal properties, and this allows some ailments and pathologies to be treated with cannabis, such as cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, among others that are under investigation.
The Resolution governs in the province of la Pampa 1830/18, dictated in 2018 by the province's Minister of Health, Mario Kohan, in which it is determined: “The provincial vademecum 2018 is incorporated as authorised medicine in provincial care establishments, cannabis oil authorized by the National Administration of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology ( ANMAT ), according to the protocol established in that body, under the justified therapeutic indication of the professional team involved, in the specific treatment of refractory epilepsy, according to existing scientific assessment criteria”.
Although the Resolution was issued in 2018 and is brief in terms of the conditions he treats, just last year, work began to spread the use of cannabis oil for treatment of people with epilepsy. For the defenders of this plant, is a small step on the long road to legalization.
