What they tell you about osteoporosis:
-It is a chronic metabolic bone disease that causes porous, sponge like bones which reduces our bones density and strength making our bones much more susceptible to fractures (Sözen, Özışık, Başaran, 2017).
-1 in 3 women and in 5 males will have osteoporosis fractures at some point, now considered a global epidemic (Sözen, Özışık, Başaran, 2017).
-Osteoporosis happens because we lose bone faster than it is rebuilt (Sözen, Özışık, Başaran, 2017).
What they don’t tell you:
-Endocannabinoids play a role in bone remodeling and bone reabsorption (Idris, 2010).
-CBD (exogenous cannabinoid) acts on CB1 and CB2 receptors in the bones and plays a role in bone formation, regulation, and homeostasis (Idris, 2010).
-CBD increases bone reabsorption and increasing bone density by interacting with the CB1 and CB2 receptors (Idris, 2010).
To keep it simple, studies show that CBD increases our bone density, bone strength, increases bone formation and reabsorption, and reduces pain associated with osteoporosis (Idris, 2010).
Might I add that these studies were published in 2010, why do we not know of this valuable information since osteoporosis is considered a global epidemic?
