DMSO with topical cannabis cream

18 posts in this topic

I was just wondering whether Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)could be mixed with Danzig's cannabis cream?

Use of DMSO in medicine dates from around 1963, when a Oregon Health & Science University Medical School team, headed by Stanley Jacob, discovered it could penetrate the skin and other membranes without damaging them and could carry other compounds into a biological system. In medicine, DMSO is predominantly used as a topical analgesic, a vehicle for topical application of pharmaceuticals, as an anti-inflammatory, and an antioxidant. Because DMSO increases the rate of absorption of some compounds through organic tissues including skin, it can be used as a drug delivery system. It is frequently compounded with antifungal medications, enabling them to penetrate not just skin but also toe and fingernails.

I have heard of countless reports of individuals using DMSO with drugs that allow them to absorbed transdermally (through the skin) when they otherwise would not be able to be absorbed this way. So because when used correctly the drug is very safe, I was thinking that if it were mixed with cannabis you could potentially get a lot more 'bang for your buck', as it were, since the drug delivery would theoretically be a lot more efficient and you would need a lot less to achieve the same effect. So, would this work?

The French are supposedly very big on using suppositories as a deliver system for medicine/drugs as it by-passes primary filtration by the liver over oral administration, whether its true or not couldn't tell you, suppose you would have to find if the actives are soluble in it.

I think DMSO is definitely a winner for transdermal dosing, since people used cannabis in poultices it sounds like it has a lot of potential to work.

But a few things will need looked at:-

Dermal damage

Accidental boosting of absorption of other medications.

Dosage ratio, how much DMSO with how much THC/other cannabinoids. Guess you could always do a soxlet run on some DMSO, until it reached full saturation with cannabinoids and THC. Then just trial and error with the saturated DMSO, until you find a good dosage.

Wouldn't mind having a play with this idea at a later date, as my back isn't happy with me at the minute.

Interesting, as I know Cannabis has good rep as a topical.

Must be worth a try. I know that Ibuprofen works way better when used topically. Almost like a different drug, really. If I swallow it all that happens is black shit the next day. But rub my hands with it, and they are released from their usual arthritic stiffness and pain for a good three hours.

Which is nice.

Funny you should say that about the nettles mate,I was reading about that the other day and the fact that eating nettles or nettle tea might have the same long term benifits

Stinging Nettles have been used for thousands of years!

Nature provides us with many plants that will aid in the relieving of joint pain. The most radical and perhaps the most daunting is Stinging Nettles. It is called urtication - from nettles botanical name, Utrica dioica- and dates back to the biblical times. Quiet simply the plant is grasped in a gloved hand and the stiff, swollen joint is swatted, thrashed with the sting. Urtication often provides considerable relief. The tiny stingers of the nettle plant actually provide microinjections of several chemicals, one of which is histamine.

The theory is, these chemicals, as well as causing the sting, trigger anti-inflammatory action by the body and so relieve arthritis. This is an ancient folklore, that seems to work for many people all over the world. Nettles grow in may countries and in each stinging nettles has developed a reputation as a treatment for arthritis. For the less adventurous of us, a fresh nettle tea or eating nettles will offer the same long term benefits. Gently steam the young tender leaves, and enjoy as a vegetable. They do lose the stinging effect when cooked!

I apologise as well was a bit giddy last night, and a bit tactless sorry for any offence caused

^ it's okay mate, I don't mind.

I'd like to try the DMSO but can't think where I could possibly find some without much difficulty.

jimbo, have you tried glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin? Or taking fish oils for long periods?
