Cannabis Medical Journals: Herpes Virus


Herpes is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that any sexually active person can get. Their are 8 different types of this virus that affect human beings.

According to John Hopkins Medicine the two most common forms of herpes herpes infections are HSV-1 or HSV-2 infect 80 percent of American adults have oral herpes (HSV-1), which causes cold sores or fever blisters in or around the mouth. Genital herpes, caused by HSV-1 or HSV-2, affects one out of every six people in the U.S. age 14 to 49. Genital herpes infections can be asymptomatic, or can show up as outbreaks of blisters or sores.

It appears that the topical use of cannabis oil  may indeed be curative in many dermatologic applications. It makes sense because phytocannabinoids are potent anti-inflammatory compounds.
Most people with the virus don’t have symptoms. It is important to know that even without signs of the disease, it can still spread to sexual partners.
