Cannabinoid Research Studies
Procana is accepting applications to further its own studies in these areas.
AIDS / HIV
What is AIDS / HIV?
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS, if not treated. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment. So once you get HIV, you have it for life. HIV attacks the body’s immune system, specifically the CD4 cells (T cells), which help the immune system fight off infections. Untreated, HIV reduces the number of CD4 cells (T cells) in the body, making the person more likely to get other infections or infection-related cancers. Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease. These opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS, the last stage of HIV infection.
Procana Medical Studies [Apply]
Procana is accepting applicants to participate in medical studies of controlled dosage CBD for the treatment of AIDS / HIV. “CBD” Cannabidiol subset studies will be derived from either Cannabis “Marijuana” or Industrial Hemp. Other medical studies may include ratios of “THC” Tetrahydrocannabinol derived from Cannabis, also known as Marijuana to study the treatment for AIDS / HIV.
Procana does not warrant, nor does it have approval from the FDA to claim, diagnose or treat any illness or disease with its products containing Hemp, Cannabis or Marijuana with THC or CBD for the treatment of AIDS / HIV.

Most of the PubMed material consists of abstracts on preclinical research involving single cannabinoid molecules, test tubes, petri dishes, animal experiments, and in some cases human cell-line studies. Although all mammals have cell receptors that respond pharmacologically to cannabinoid compounds, data from animal experiments and other preclinical research is not always applicable to humans.
This data may include articles, surveys, studies or opinions related to THC and CBD from either Marijuana, Cannabis or Hemp in the use of AIDS / HIV. This information is for research purposes only, and does not include the use of Procana products.
