Cannabis for Burn Injuries

Burn injuries, particularly severe burns, are accompanied by an immune and inflammatory response, metabolic changes and distributive shock that can be challenging to manage and can lead to multiple organ failure.”

Each year in the United States, 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention due to burn injuries, and up to 10,000 people in the US die every year due to burn-related infections. Topically-applied cannabinoids could be a useful treatment for burns, as CBD, THC, CBG, beta-caryophyllene and many terpenes that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
