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?
