Study: Cannabis May Promote Bone Formation and Reduce Bone Dissolution

Activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors – which is done naturally through the consumption of cannabis – may promote bone formation and reduce bone dissolution, according to a study published this month in the journal Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

“The type-2 cannabinoid receptor (CB2) is expressed in osteoblasts and plays a role in bone metabolism through regulation on bone mass and bone turnover”, begins the study’s abstract; “but the functional importance of CB2 in osteoblasts under Titanium (Ti) stimulation is incompletely understood.”
