Category Archives: Endocannabinoid System

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 – […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Some Progress in Science…

Interestingly enough my son who is working towards his bachelor of Science and wants to eventually apply to med school is learning about the endocannabinoid system in his BioChem class. We have had some great conversations about this lately.  🙂 For more articles on our Amazing Endocannabinoid System click here

Your Health and its connection to the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is a group of specialized lipids, their receptors, and the enzymes that produce and degrade them. Through direct and indirect actions, endocannabinoids are known to modulate and influence a variety of physiological systems, including appetite, pain, inflammation, thermoregulation, intra-ocular pressure, sensation, muscle control, energy balance, metabolism, sleep health, stress responses, motivation/reward, mood, […]

Great info on the Entourage Effect!

Altogether, cannabis comprises of more than 400 identified compounds and there are over 110 cannabinoids that have been identified in the cannabis plant. Studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that the interaction between these substances and our endocannabinoid system results in synergistic effects, which is called the “entourage effect”. To read full cannabis.info article click here […]

Optimal Cannabis Dosing…

A Doctor’s perspective… great info on dosing. Sometimes less is more when it comes to medicinal cannabis dosing. Dosage is the key factor in achieving the most benefits and least adverse effects of cannabis. After following thousands of patients using medical cannabis for eight years, I’ve observed that dosing cannabis is unlike any therapeutic agent […]

The “Entourage Effect” Isolated CBD Is Less Effective than the Plant with All of Its Cannabinoids

Although many people try to create cannabis medicines using a single cannabis compound, several research studies have shown that they will not be effective. What is really powerful is the combination between different elements that will have different results on different people. This interactive synergy between the cannabis compounds, a term known as the “entourage […]

Our Amazing Endocannabinoid System <3

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.

Plenty of Promise for the “Wonder Weed”

The anecdotal evidence that cannabis has a positive effect on a long list of medical conditions from epilepsy, pain, cancer, even Alzheimer’s Disease is building. However, to date there’s been scant clinical evidence to back up these claims. At long last that may be changing. Researchers are now applying scientific rigour to convert anecdote into […]
