The Amazing Benefits of CBD Oil

WHAT IS CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive component of cannabis. CBD doesn’t create a “high” like THC. But it provides many therapeutic benefits by working on different receptors within the body. It goes a lot deeper than the fact that it’s just not THC. There’s a lot that goes on in the body. […]

Cannabis Dosing: Not a One Size Fits All.

When it comes to medicinal cannabis dosing… Finding the correct dose of cannabis is very important, as we all have a unique internal chemistry and endocannabinoid system.Therefore… there is no “golden dose” that will work for everyone. Optimizing therapeutic cannabis use can be a challenge – for doctors as well as patients. Most physicians never […]

The Neuroprotectant and Antioxidant Benefits of Cannabidiol ( CBD)

I did a bit more research on this and found out that both THC and CBD are powerful antioxidants and neuroprotectants and interestingly enough, the U.S. Government Patent 1999/008769 is specifically for the neuroprotectant and antioxidant properties of cannabinoids. The government has known about this for some time. 😔 You can read the patent information […]

Studies are Showing Whole plant Medicine may be more Therapeutically Beneficial.

Instrumental in this area of science is Ethan Russo, M.D., a neurologist who has long studied cannabis compounds and their role in the body. In his study “Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects,” he details how cannabis compounds influence each other’s mechanisms. We aren’t just talking about THC and CBD here – […]

Cannabis is a Safe and Effective Treatment and Possible Preventative for Many Health Conditions?

Cannabis and its psychoactive cannabinoid, THC, are considered incredibly safe for human consumption. The Drug Awareness Warning Network Annual Report, published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), contains a statistical compilation of all drug deaths which occur in the United States. According to this report, there has never been a death […]

Cannabinoid Therapy

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays key modulatory roles during synaptic plasticity and homeostatic processes in the brain. Based on anecdotal evidence obtained from cannabis use, laboratory studies, and from emerging clinical work, modulation of the ECS has been proposed as a promising therapeutic target to treat numerous central nervous system (CNS) disorders including neurodegenerative diseases, […]

Our Amazing Endocannabinoid System

Once cannabis is ingested, it is broken down  and cannabinoids are released into the body. The human body has an endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate appetite, energy balance, metabolism, stress responses, immune functions, the autonomic nervous system, thermo-regulation, sleep and many other important body systems.

Our Amazing Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Did you know that everything in your body is homeostatically regulated by our Endocannabinoid System? Homeostasis is the scientific term that loosely describes a state of optimum balance. In the human body, the endocannabinoid system promotes homeostasis by helping both the body and brain perceive change and respond appropriately. Sometimes described as a “bridge between […]

Medicinal Cannabis Dosing: Not a One Size Fits All

The goal for most cannabis patients is to find just the right dosage to get relief from their symptoms, without getting the psychedelic effects of the THC. However, when it comes to dosing Medicinal Cannabis, it is not a one size fits all medicine and the amount that works for one person may not be […]

How Cannabis Re-balances Body Systems…

The “simplest” accurate description of the effects of Cannabis in humans is that it modulates the regulation of homeostasis. According to Biology on line… “Homeostasis refers to the ability of the body or a cell to seek and maintain a condition of equilibrium or stability within its internal environment when dealing with external changes. It […]

Recent Study shows THC is Medicine too?

In a recent study titled, “The Association between Cannabis Product Characteristics and Symptom Relief,” published in the journal Scientific Reports, UNM researchers Sarah See Stith, assistant professor in the Department of Economics, and Jacob Miguel Vigil, associate professor in the Department of Psychology, found that THC and CBD contents were the most important factor for […]

Endocannabinoid System: an Essential Part of Life and Adaptation to Environmental Changes.

The ECS is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of […]

Cannabis as a Medicine…

The Cannabis plant has a history of medicinal use dating back thousands of years in many cultures. In the 1830s, Sir William Brooke O’Shaughnessy, an Irish doctor studying in India, found that cannabis extracts could help lessen stomach pain and vomiting in people suffering from cholera. By the late 1800s, cannabis extracts were sold in […]

How can Medicinal Cannabis can Treat so Many Health Conditions?

According to Greenflower article The Endocannabinoid System ( ECS) is why medicinal cannabis can treat so many health conditions and why it is  such a powerful healing tool. It can be viewed as a station master for cellular communication in the body. This system consists of at least two distinct cell receptors (CB1 and CB2). […]

Endocannabinoid System: One of the Greatest Health Discoveries!

The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered by Dr Raphael Mechoulam, considered to be the father of cannabis based medicines. What’s most amazing is that the ECS is now considered to be the largest network of receptors in the human body. The discovery of the Endocannabinoid system (ECS)is arguably the greatest health discovery of modern times. […]
