( — March 29, 2017) Huntington Beach, CA — Tops Cannabis, an industry-leading medical marijuana delivery service in Southern California, recently discussed emerging medical research on cannabis. In several studies conducted in the past five years, researchers discovered unexpected benefits in both medical and recreational users of cannabis products. These benefits could have important ramifications for medical professionals, patients, and medical marijuana dispensaries around the world. “Anecdotal evidence of the health benefits of marijuana has been around for decades,” says a spokesperson for the Orange County medical cannabis delivery service. “It is only in recent years that scientific research has begun to verify what many users already knew.” To learn more about the surprising health benefits of cannabis, visit

One study conducted by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey suggested that one of the chemical compounds in marijuana may help to control insulin levels in patients with Type 2 diabetes. The compound, called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is one of hundreds of chemicals classed as cannabinoids that can be found in marijuana. In the CDC study, fasting insulin and insulin levels were significantly lower in marijuana users. A related study conducted by researchers found that marijuana users had less overall body fat levels that non-users, suggesting an ability for the chemical compounds to help manage caloric intake.

Building on several decades of existing study, researchers noted that marijuana use can reduce pressure in the human eye, representing an alternative treatment option for patients diagnosed with glaucoma. Recent studies have shown that cannabinoids present in marijuana products can also help to prevent the loss of vision in patients and slow down the disease’s progression. “Improving patient outcomes is foremost in medical professionals’ care plans,” says the spokesperson. Inflammation in the tissues of the eye as well as in other areas of the body may be reduced by the use of cannabis products such as fresh plant material or extract preparations. Researchers have also learned of the role of cannabinoids in pain management, which may offer patients alternative options when it comes to chronic pain treatment.

Of particular interest to researchers and to the medical community is a 2012 study that demonstrated effectiveness of cannabinoids on destroying cancer cells. In limited clinical trials, cannabidiol (CBD) and THC killed cancerous cells under laboratory conditions, all while leaving adjacent healthy tissues unharmed. Follow-up studies also reinforced the findings of initial research projects. “This is exciting preliminary research,” adds the delivery service spokesperson. “Of course, further study is needed, but medical marijuana could be a safe alternative to dangerous chemotherapy drugs.” For more information on Top Cannabis and to learn more about its range of products, visit
