The research on the role of the cannabinoids found in marijuana in treating chronic pain is part of an ongoing partnership between Desert Harvest and Dr. Reza Sharif
Researchers found that a formulation of the non-psychoactive chemical cannabidiol (CBD) and Aloe Vera developed by Desert Harvest dampened the response of neurons called dorsal root ganglion (DNG) play a primary role in relaying sensory information to the nervous system and brain. The results suggest the formulation may dampen so-called “nociceptive excitability” compared to a control group, “demonstrating an effect potentially relevant to chronic pain treatment,” researchers observed.

Aloe Vera and Anthraquinones: What You Need to Know
Aloe Vera has been known for its healing properties for thousands of years. However, not all Aloe Vera products are the same, and without proper treatment of the aloe leaf, some can contain irritants and carcinogens.
Desert Harvest Super-Strength Aloe Vera uses the entire Aloe Vera leaf, not just the gel. Our patented freeze-dry process filters out all the anthraquinones and insoluble fiber. We use this cold process to avoid breaking down the nutrients and enhance bioavailability. That’s why our Super-Strength Aloe Vera has the highest nutrient intake on the market, with more than 200 nutrients, including antibacterials, antifungals, antivirals, anti-microbials, anti-inflammatories, analgesics, and more—and all without harmful anthraquinones. It’s all part of what makes Desert Harvest unique and uniquely free of toxic chemicals.

Last month, Desert Harvest announced it is seeking approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use of its Super-Strength Aloe Vera Capsules in the treatment of Interstitial Cystitis (IC) a.k.a. Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS). If approved, this could be a huge step forward in the lives of the 12 million men and women who suffer from the painful chronic bladder condition.
