Parkinson's

Parkinson's Disease is a degenerative disorder of the nervous system marked by accelerated degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons in the Substantia Nigra in the brain.

Typical symptoms of Parkinson's Disease , such as (intentional) tremor, rigidity and slowness of movement are mostly ascribed to degenerating Substantia Nigra neurons.

Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease and the main cause of dementia. Main common symptoms of dementia are related with memory but other cognitive processes are affected during the development of the disease.

Stroke

A Stroke is marked by reduced blood flow to the brain. This reduction can be due to a blocked blood vessle (ischaemia) or a ruptured blood vessle (aneurism). Either way, as a result (part of) the brain is deprived of oxygen and nutrients which in turn causes neuronal degradation and cognitive decline.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease characterized by itchy skin lesions. Psoriasis arises when the immune system mistakenly identifies skin cells as foreign matter and causes over-production of new skin cells.

OCD

OCD is an Anxiety disorder characterised by the obsessive urge for repetitive behaviour.

Obesity

Energy homeostasis (balance)  is one of the primary functions of the Endocannabinoid system.

Diabetes

Diabetes has two major forms: Type 1 Diabetes is an auto-immune disorder where insulin-producing β-cells in the pancreatic Islets of Langerhans are attacked by the body's immune system resulting in reduced insulin production.

Depression

Both plant cannabinoids and the Endocannabinoid system have been implicated as risk factors in the development of depression as well as therapeutic targets to treat depression.

Cystitis

Cystitis is an infection of the urinary tract.

Bulimia

cannabinoids and endocannabinoids are known to strongly affect eating behavior. THC typically induces hunger and THCV suppresses it.
