MEDICAL CANNABIS is an ingredient in many plants that helps relieve pain.
Its been used for centuries to treat arthritis, cough, and some kinds of headaches.
But now a team at the University of Michigan is developing a drug that could be used to treat people with chronic pain.
The drug, called ayahuasca planta medicine, was discovered by the University in 2014.
It contains a plant extract called ayurvedic (medicinal) plant medicines that are similar to those in ayurvesis medicine.
The compound is used in a few other medicines including painkillers, muscle relaxants, and anti-inflammatories.
The drug is known to relieve pain in a variety of conditions including cancer, chronic pain, and multiple sclerosis.
The U-M researchers developed the drug by combining it with the plant medicine resveratrol.
The compound, which has been shown to be effective in cancer, is a natural compound found in plants like the leaves of the redcurrant and blueberries.
When combined with the resverata extract, the drug acts as a “compound for the body,” said Dr. Raghuram Raghavan, an associate professor of pharmacology and physiology at the U-T Medical School.
That means it’s a substance that acts on a different receptor that’s not present in a common plant compound.
The molecule also has a specific effect on the body, affecting how the body uses the drug.
“You have to have the drug in your body, but you have to know exactly what that is,” Raghavans told the New York Times.
“The key thing about this drug is it’s very well-known and understood.”
The U of M team is developing the drug to treat chronic disease and pain.
They’re currently testing it in a mouse model of chronic pain to see if it can help relieve the symptoms of chronic arthritis and cough.
The researchers say they hope to begin the drug trial by the end of 2019.
They plan to use it to treat more people in the coming years.
The research was supported by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
