At this time, the issue of marijuana has become a hot topic in society, not just as an opportunity to use it for medicinal purposes. But many people are interested in knowing the point of Cannabis strains that are the most suitable for medical use.
This story has an answer from Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wichian Keeratinikarn, Specialist in Cultivation and Plant Breeding, Faculty of Agriculture, Kasetsart University And consultants to the Pharmaceutical Organization or GPO to educate each other that the cannabis contains a substance called “cannabinoids” in which each disease It uses cannabinoids that contain both THC and cbd öl. There are 150 other substances around the world trying to find out. Which one is suitable for what disease? And to find suitable for the disease, It is also necessary to find suitable species. which will find substances that are only in flowers to extract.
“Therefore, culturing also affects the extraction of substances for use. As a result, the Government Pharmaceutical Organization has carried out and planted all three strains of cannabis, which were originally said to be THC and CBD, in a 1-to-1 ratio, but they really weren’t. For example, epilepsy requires pure CBD, while the Thai variety alone is found to be high in THC, so it needs to be planted into three cultivars in 3 groups: high THC, high CBD, and both THC and CBD. The same proportion is 1 to 1, which in the 1 to 1 group will be tested by the Cancer Institute,” Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wichian said. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wichian added that such cultivation would meet the needs of medical cannabis use. For example, if research indicates that a 3-to-1 ratio of THC and CBD is needed, the Pharmaceutical Organization can mix it. If any research needs any type, It can be mixed in proportion to that research. Therefore, it is the origin of planting three species itself.
The three species are hybrids. Because if using a single species, the Pharmaceutical Organization will not get the desired substance Because it will only be a single substance. Therefore, it must be done primarily according to each disease group’s needs and suitability. Whether the use of cbd öl for the first four groups that have valid research data are:
- Epilepsy that is difficult to treat and drug-resistant epilepsy; 2. Nausea and vomiting caused by standard chemotherapy ineffective; 3. Spasticity in patients with multiple sclerosis; and 4. Neuropathic pain treated. Other methods are ineffective. Including new diseases in research, There must be a single substance. Suitable for preparation with, for example, cancer, Parkinson’s, depending on the doctor said, will be mixed, called to make a traditional medium that can be mixed in the proportions that the doctor in that research project wants.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wichian explained that it is a foreign hybrid species for the three species mentioned. All over the world, all hybrids are used between Sativa and Indica, while the Thai variety has a high THC analysis, which is eight parts to 10 parts per 1 part of cbd öl.
Many people may wonder. There is also a Thai strain of the Government Pharmaceutical Organization. In this regard, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wichian explained that the hybrid strain has a Sativa mixed. The Thai strain is also in the Sativa strain group because the Sativa variety is a collective name, which Thai varieties are also in this group. It is a species that originated in the equator, found in India, Jamaica, Colombia, while the Indica strain species originated in Central Asia, latitude 25-35 degrees north. Most of the world no longer has a single species. But the Thai variety is a pure Sativa variety, which in India and Jamaica is still pure. However, it is in the process of improving the Thai variety.
