Cannabis fights MRSA

So, what is MRSA? It is an increasingly common and at times life threatening staph infection that is resistant to most if not all antibiotics. The most common presentation of MRSA infections are with dermatological infections.

For many, many patients this infection ruins their lives. For others it is an expensive and uncomfortable skin infection that just never goes away.

These guys, studied using various cannabinoids, including THC, CBD and CBN, for their anti-bacterial function. It turns out they have terrific staphylococcus killing power. The cannabinoids work in an unknown manner, but I am certain many more studies will be done.

I recently had a patient who started using a cannabis topical solution for her severe MRSA infection. She has had nearly complete remission.
