GlobalDerm making a difference in people’s lives

2019-04-17 06:00

THE diagnosis of a loved one, especially a parent, with a debilitating disease like cancer can often lead to family members becoming immersed in emotional torpidity.

For a GlobalDerm South Africa representative, the realisation that her mother was facing a life threatening disease sparked her into action and a lifelong journey in the field of alternative medicine.

Disappointment and disillusionment with the medical treatments and increased awareness of the negative impacts of certain pharmaceuticals sent her on a journey of discovery that raised her awareness of a more holistic approach to health, wellness and nutrition. “My mum was diagnosed with cervical cancer in the mid-eighties and it was at this point that I started my pursuit of alternative medicines, which eventually lead me to the medicinal use of cannabis,” she reveals. “I set about learning all I could about cannabis and the best methods of drug free, pain free and stigma free use of this product.”

Humans have cannabidiol (CBD) receptor cells which allows non-intoxicating cannabis compounds to bind directly to these receptors — making this a natural way to heal. She also learned that smoking cannabis or eating the product either produced a temporary high or resulted in a much reduced impact after it passed through the liver.

For now there is definitely curiosity and whisperings among many people interested in the benefits of the product.

Consumers are afraid of using addictive substances and afraid of the stigma associated with cannabis. Who can blame them for doubting the notorious ‘drug’? The smell, the smoke, the high and the taste are deterrents to cannabis use.

Globalderm prioritised all these factors in the process of perfecting a globally acceptable form of CBD that is suitable for both kids and adults, delivering an end product that is both eco-friendly and consumer friendly.

Transdermal delivery and release systems have been on the market since the 80s, with approximately 40 years of extensive research put into this technology. In addition, most major pharmaceutical companies market transdermal systems for dispensing medical agents and other solutions, including the well-known anti-smoking nicotine patch. If you hate the idea of smoking anything, the popular alternative is a cannabis transdermal skin patch.

Using the patch is as quick and easy as sticking on a BandAid, a tiny patch that delivers pain relief and relaxation throughout the body. Most importantly, GlobalDerm Homeopathic patches are a tetrahydrocannabinol free CBD preparation that is unique and cannot be copied. It is an efficient, safe, and easy to use method for delivering active ingredients to the body through intact skin, offering advantages over the traditional dosage forms.

Supplements are delivered directly to the blood stream — nothing gets burned up in stomach acid and there is no metabolic degradation as seen in the first liver bypass.

Apart from being cost-effective, compared to conventional pharmaceutical treatments, the way they combat the pain is quite different. Cannabis patches deliver doses of CBD straight to the bloodstream; this also allows the patches to provide a constant and slow absorption of the medicinal dosage.

I eventually went to the doctor to get x-rays and they confirmed that I had arthritis. I decided to give this a shot. I’ve been using Globalderm CBD Patch for three weeks already and can tell a significant difference in my joint pain. My knees don’t ache as much anymore and I’ve been able to walk around freely. I HIGHLY recommend the product.” — Frank.
