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. […]

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

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 […]

Doctors Speak Out About the Endocannabinoid System & Health Benefits of CBD

It doesn’t have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes Marijuana is the only thing that works… It is irresponsible not to provide the best care we can as a medical community, care that could involve Marijuana. We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 […]

Cannabis as a Possible Treatment for Prostate Cancer?

According to Prostate Cancer Canada… Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian men. One in eight men will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.Prostate cancer is a disease where some prostate cells have lost normal control of growth and division. They no longer function as healthy cells. A cancerous prostate […]

The Neuro-Protective Properties of Cannabinoids

“Cannabis was considered medicine for thousands of years and only over the last eighty years has it been stigmatized as a drug of abuse.  Thanks to countless scientists and their curiosity, we now understand that the compounds in cannabis interact directly with a widespread and complex system, named the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which works to […]
