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, […]

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. […]

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.

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. […]

The Endocannabinoid System as an Emerging Target of Pharmacotherapy

Short Excerpt… ” In the past decade, the endocannabinoid system has been implicated in a growing number of physiological functions, both in the central and peripheral nervous systems and in peripheral organs. More importantly, modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and […]

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”.

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 […]

How Cannabis Rebalances…

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 […]

Study Shows Blocking Brain’s ‘Internal Cannabis’ May Trigger Early Alzheimer’s Deficits…

Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia among the elderly population in Canada. According to Stats Canada “Dementia is the most common type of neurodegenerative disorder. In 2010 an estimated 35.6 million people worldwide were living with dementia, a number that is expected to double in 20 years!” At present this is no cure […]

Cannabis Science: How the Endocannabinoid System Controls Appetite

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, and they are found in the body in locations such as the brain, intestines, and the immune system. When a cannabinoid receptor is stimulated by an endocannabinoid, various physiological functions in multiple systems of the body are activated including memory, pain sensation, mood, and most […]
