The endocannabinoid system discovery began to emerge in 1992. It was found by Raphael Mechoulam as well as NIMH researchers William Devane and Dr. Lumir Hanus.
It didn’t just appear, rather it was always there, so in that vane it was science catching up with real life. It probably started out as a theory and later validated. That’s how real science is supposed to work. Today however , we have a lot of pseudo science masquerading as science, and that’s regrettable.
We’ve actually been lied to for years about the harmfulness of cannabis and some of you bought it. Did you know that the human body actually creates small amounts of cannabinoids and that he body has receptors all over that respond chemically to the presence of cannabis.
So the question is why do we have receptors for cannabis if we’re told that we should not ingest or consume it, or that it offers no benefit to our health. The fact is that question can’t be answered truthfully unless we admit the efficacy of cannabis, but also the deficiency which no one will admit.
We talked in other articles about the endocrine system and how it produces effects that involves the entire body. Let me connect a few dots that most others won’t. The word endo in the endocannabinoid system, is the same endo in the endocrine system, so let’s make that association official.
The endocannabinoid system, performs many complex actions in our immune system beginning with the nervous system, and all of the body’s other organs as well. Many referr to it as a chemical bridge between body and mind.
Endocannabinoid Receptors are found:
- connective tissues
- immune cells
If you think about that for a moment…That covers the whole body.
Many who have experienced positive results don’t know this, they just know, they are suddenly better. That’s an anecdotal observation on their part. Now however, scientific information is beginning to surface from studies largely from countries outside the United States. The more that is learned, the broader the spectrum of problems seem to be remedied through the use of cannabis. We should all pay close attention to what we’re learning for our own health’s sake.
It’s important to note that medical acceptance usually runs about 20 to 30 years behind the emergence of scientific facts. The problem with that is most people don’t have 20 to 30 years for medical acceptance to catch up, and possibly have a positive impact on their health. Even when science proves it, the medical community for their own set of reasons deny the facts, obfuscate the truth and drag their feet. Many a desperate soul has had to risk going to prison just to save his or her own life, when medicine could not fix the problem.
You may have noticed that there is a growing chorus of those who are not only convinced of the effectiveness of cannabis but are demanding that it be made available to people medically, with some success, and that’s good.
I’ve also heard reports that some of this medical cannabis is not as effective as the original uncut variety. There are possibly two reasons for this. One this chemical process of extraction from the plant what these scientists think is everything involved in the cannabis action of healing is not correct. The truth is they can’t include all the constituents with proving the cannabis unaltered.
Providing cannabis unaltered means they have no role in it’s production, other than growing it, and therefore can’t make any money off of it, billing insurance.
On a personal note: I would be extremely suspicious of medical cannabis because of the inclusion of nano particles such as what is said to be put in food, water, and chemtrails. That’s just me.
