Study: Cannabis May Treat Thrombocytopenia-Related Diseases

A new study published in the journal Cell Cycle, and published online by the plateletNational Institute of Health, has found that cannabis may provide a treatment option for thrombocytopenia-related diseases. Thrombocytopenia is any disorder in which there is an abnormally low amount of platelets.

For the study, researchers “sought to further interrogate the role of 2-AG [a synthetic cannabinoid] in megakaryocyte/platelet physiology by investigating terminal differentiation, and subsequent thrombopoiesis… To this end, we used MEG-01 cells, a human megakaryoblastic cell line able to produce in vitro platelet-like particles.”

After conducting the study, researchers conclude that cannabinoids, by triggering megakaryocyte maturation and platelet release, “may have clinical efficacy to counteract thrombocytopenia-related diseases.”

The study was conducted by researchers at the Department of Experimental Medicine & Surgery at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and can be found by clicking here.

    • I am currently giving my son CBD oil. I see a huge health change in him. He is happy and looks healthy. I was a drug addict and was diagnosed with HIV. The news is devestating and I want to try CBD. So i started giving it to him. Last week we went to get a blood test and his platelett count was 6 on wednesday. On friday I took him to ER but before that i gave him 30mg CBD oil. His numbers were 9. He got a transfusion and we came home. I was sure the CBD took the numbers up. But i started giving him 60 mg a day and I see Bruises on his arms. Could THC be what he needs? Am i messing up by giving him CBD? HELP!!!!
