Study: Cannabis May Help Treat Pulmonary Fibrosis

Image result for Study: Cannabis May Help Treat Pulmonary Fibrosis


Cannabis may provide a treatment option for pulmonary fibrosis, according to a new study published by the journal Oncotarget and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health.



According to Mayo Clinic, pulmonary fibrosis is “a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for your lungs to work properly.” As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, “you become progressively more short of breath.”
The study’s abstract begins by stating that; “Activation of cannabinoid receptor type 2 [something done naturally through cannabis consumption] has been shown to have anti-fibrosis function in skin and heart. However, whether activating cannabinoid receptor type 2 inhibits pulmonary fibrosis remains elusive.” In this study, researchers “aimed to investigate the role of cannabinoid receptor type 2 in pulmonary fibrosis in vitro and in vivo.”



After conducting their investigation, researchers found the data to indicate that “activating cannabinoid receptor type 2 by a pharmacological method might be a potential strategy for pulmonary fibrosis”.

The full study, conducted by researchers at the Capital Medical University is Bejing, China, can be found by clicking here.

  1. After my 3rd pulmonary embolism in 2003, I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and I read that people usually die within 5 years. My specialist has me on blood thinners, prednisone and other steroids that I inhale daily. October 2006 I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Green House Herbal Clinic natural organic idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this pulmonary fibrosis Herbal formula treatment.

  2. A CT scan in August of 2009 verified that I had Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. My first symptoms were cough and shortness of breath. I was on prednisone and inhalers. My blood oxygen level was 50 and i was extremely short of breath, i was barely able to breath. I went through cardio pulmonary rehab, It helped but not too long before all the severe symptoms returned. December last year, a family friend told us about Rich Herbs Foundation and their successful lungs disease treatments, we visited their website ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om and ordered their IPF herbal treatment, i am happy to report this treatment effectively reversed my Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and symptoms. I am back on my feet, i walk daily now and has made me able to walk my two dogs again without shortness of breath or sudden loss of energy. My activity level is up again.

  3. My Husband was diagnosed with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis 5 years ago and was on minimum daily dosage prednisone (7.5 mg), azathioprine and N-Acetyl. They put him on 6 liters of oxygen and steroids to slow down progression. His symptoms have always been shortness of breath, and coughing badly. the prednisone wasn’t really working and he could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects, There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. So this year his primary physician suggested we started him on Natural Herbal Gardens Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Herbal formula which eased his anxiety a bit,, We ordered their IPF herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report with the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs we have been able to reverse my husband symptoms using herbs, his symptoms totally declined over a 9 weeks use of the Natural Herbal Gardens IPF natural herbal formula. His Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is totally reversed! Their official web page is www . naturalherbalgardens . com After the herbal treatment he also finally was able to give up smoking after 20 years. We are thankful to nature, herbs are truly gift from God
