GENETICS

We have the world’s largest genetic library of cannabis strains including several unique landraces, which were obtained by the Strain Hunters on expeditions to the most remote regions of the world. These landraces are reported to have therapeutic properties but are mostly unknown to the general public and scientific world.

OUR MISSION

The purpose of this website is to collect and provide science-based information about cannabinoids, their biochemical interactions in your body and how cannabinoids could be used to help combat disease. Cannabis, and its active ingredients, cannabinoids, have been reported to have therapeutic effects in diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, autism, schizophrenia, depression, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Crohn’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis, migraine and many other disorders. At GH Medical we aim to collect the available anecdotal evidence and where possible substantiate this with rigorous, science-based evidence.

CHEMICAL ANALYSIS

At the GH Medical laboratory we offer clients complete analytical testing for the usual contaminants that are found in cannabis, such as mould, fungus, bacteria, chemical residues, salts, remaining solvent and pesticides. In addition our lab offers full quantitative profiling of cannabinoids and other terpenes.

By: | Tags:

Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is a form of brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation during the birth process. It can cause sensorimotor and cognitive impairments including physical and intellectual disability. The endocannabinoid system can regulate the underlying processes of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy when its occurring, therefore cannabinoids could help to ameliorate the symptoms related to it.
