In a preclinical trial on animals, researchers found that combining music therapy (or “digital therapeutics”) with analgesic drugs including CBD worked to alleviate pain and symptoms of epilepsy.

Researchers played Mozart compositions which previously have shown to help human patients with epilepsy. Combined with CBD and NAX 5055, this therapy showed to reduce paw edema in mice.

Published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology, the authors say “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first animal study on music-enhanced antinociceptive activity of analgesic drugs.”

CBD as a Possibly Treatment for Hyperactivity

In another study in mice published in the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, researchers found that CBD “strongly blunted the hyperactivity” of lab mice, and that the hyperactivity was associated with activity in the hippocampus. The researchers concluded that their study suggests “a hippocampal dysfunction in hyperactive behaviors that can be treated with cannabidiol.”

Cannabinoids and Breast Cancer

Authors published this month in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences recognized the many benefits of various cannabinoids in the treatment of symptoms of late-stage breast cancer. This included “tumor-associated symptoms” such as “nausea, anorexia, and neuropathic pain” and acknowledged as well that “they may decelerate tumor progression”.

The authors went on to list how various cannabinoids specifically work to shrink tumors, citing various studies in humans and in animals. They concluded that CBs should not only treat symptoms in late stage cancer patients, but be use to fight cancer at the onset, since the evidence is mounting pointing to the cancer-fighting qualities of the derivatives of the cannabis sativa plant.
