Chicago Pharmacal Co. Cystitis No. 7 Cannabis Tablets

Cystitis:

Cystitis is the medical term for inflammation of the bladder. Most of the time, the inflammation is caused by a bacterial infection, in which case it may be referred to as a urinary tract infection (UTI). A bladder infection can be painful and annoying, and can become a serious health problem if the infection spreads to your kidneys.

Less commonly, cystitis may occur as a reaction to certain drugs, radiation therapy or potential irritants, such as feminine hygiene spray, spermicidal jellies or long-term use of a catheter. Cystitis may also occur as a complication of another illness.

The usual treatment for bacterial cystitis is antibiotics. Treatment for other types of cystitis depends on the underlying cause.

Modern Use

A recent article in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management (2003) demonstrated that cannabinoid medicine can still be used to treat chronic painful cystitis. A 31-year-old woman with a 20-year history of painful chronic cystitis was unable to find relief from a variety of conventional analgesics (e.g., opioid medications) and therapies, as well as some alternative therapies, such as magnetic field therapy and acupuncture. However, after some trial and error rotating and adjusting the dose of a cannabinoid-based medicine due to initial severe side-effects, she was able to return to work, having experienced significant reduction of pain with nearly no adverse effects.
