CBD is one of over 60 plus compounds found in the cannabis plant that belong to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. CBD or Cannabidol is an amazing antioxidant and anti inflammatory and now one study is showing that this amazing cannabinoid may actually strengthen bones and speed the healing of fractures! The study was published in The Journal of Bones & Mineral Research by researchers from Tel Aviv and Hebrew University.
As quoted by Yankel Gabet one of the researchers of the study… “We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue. After being treated with CBD the healed bone will be much harder to break in the future.”
Gabet also noted… ” The clinical potential of cannabinoids related compounds is simply undeniable at this point.”
While this study was performed on rats it looks very promising for human application!
