The Importance of Our Amazing Endocannabinod System (ECS)

Cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, located throughout the body, are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory and more! The main reason that cannabis provides psychoactive effects as well as therapeutic benefits is because the cannabinoids in the plant interact with the receptors, […]

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is Medicine too!

The isolation of THC came from an Israeli chemist by the name of Raphael Mechoulam. In 1964, Mechoulam isolated and synthesized THC from Lebanese hashish, marking the beginning of cannabis research that would lead to the discovery of many other cannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, and “endocannabinoids” – the THC-like compounds our body naturally […]

CBD +THC the Perfect Partnership for Most Therapeutic Benefits?

When CBD and THC are combined, they create the entourage effect. That means they play off each other, forming a synergistic partnership, improving the desirable health benefits of each. Several studies underscore the therapeutic advantages for combining CBD and THC—particularly for treating peripheral neuropathy, a painful condition associated with cancer, multiple sclerosis (MS), diabetes, arthritis, and […]

Our Amazing Endocannabinod System

Cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, located throughout the body, are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in a variety of physiological processes. The Endocannabinoid system helps regulate appetite, energy balance, metabolism, stress responses, immune functions, the autonomic nervous system, thermo-regulation, sleep and many other important body systems. The main reason that cannabis provides […]

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 […]
