A new study has found evidence that cannabis may help treat osteoporosis, specifically in men suffering from prostate disease.

According to researchers from Konkuk University, in Seoul, Republic of Korea, a substantial portion of men with prostatic disease have an increased risk of bone loss, but activating cannabinoid receptors can help combat these effects. Scientists induced prostatic hyperplasia (enlargement of the prostate gland) in rats and administered a cannabinoid agonist. The enhanced cannabinoid receptor expression caused an upregulation of osteoblastogenesis, or an increase in bone growth, while inhibiting the prostatic hyperplasia.
