Cannabis for Bacterial Meningitis

When a bacterial or viral infection occurs around the brain and spinal cord and causes swelling, meningitis occurs. It is most often contracted by injury, cancer, and certain drugs. Meningitis can be fatal, with up 10-15% of sufferers dying from the condition. If the condition is survived, one in five people who have had it will suffer from permanent disabilities, including brain damage, hearing loss, kidney failure, and limb amputations.

The cannabinoid cannabigerol (CBG) shows plenty of antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial action. McMaster University Microbiologist Eric Brown and his team of researchers discovered after “several trials, CBG showed the strongest antibiotic potential, effectively targeting the resilient bacteria.”
