Prior to the outlawing of cannabis in 1937, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines, but cannabis has actually been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Although it has a long history, the recent discovery (1992) of the body's widespread endocannabinoid system (ECS) has thrust cannabis back into the limelight again as a viable medicine.
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis. However, while THC produces a "high" in the user, CBD does not.
It was discovered that the Hemp Family of plants (cannabis, marijuana) is loaded with cannabinoids that stimulate our ECS receptor sites. These sites are found in the brain, organs, glands, connective tissue and immune cells and plays regulatory roles in many physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The primary purpose of this system revolves around maintaining balance in the body.
Research has shown that cannabis has a significant role in the human body in many different areas including: memory, appetite, pain sensation, stress response, energy balance and metabolism, anxiety, immune functions, thermoregulation, sleep and other systems. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for complex interactions in the immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs and can be understood as a bridge between the mind and body.
Cannabinoids found in all varieties of cannabis work in harmony with the cannabinoids we naturally produce when our system is functioning properly. It is now coming to light that we may very well be "Endocannabinoid Deficient" and supplementing with Cannabidiol, known as CBD, may provide just what we're missing to restore optimum health.
Make no mistake about it, the endocannabinoid system, although newly discovered, is just as important as any other bodily system, like the muscular, cardiac, circulatory or digestive system. The ECS requires its own specialized medicine as found in the Hemp Family of plants, which is also known as cannabis, and which includes all strains of marijuana.
Here is a list of conditions known and/or being researched that may be helped by cannabinoid therapeutics and supplementation:
Acne ADD/ADHD Addiction AIDS ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) Alzheimer's Anorexia Antibiotic Resistance Anxiety Atherosclerosis Arthritis Asthma Autism Bipolar Cancer Colitis/Crohn's Depression Diabetes Endocrine Disorders Epilepsy/Seizure Fibromyalgia Glaucoma Heart Disease Huntington's Inflammation Irritable Bowel Kidney Disease Liver Disease Metabolic Syndrome Migraine Mood Disorders Motion Sickness Multiple Sclerosis Nausea Neurodegeneration Neuropathic Pain Obesity OCD Osteoporosis Parkinson's Prion/Mad Cow Disease PTSD Rheumatism Schizophrenia Sickle Cell Anemia Skin Conditions Sleep Disorders Spinal Cord Injury Stress Stroke/TBI and many more......
The short story?
You have an Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS). It helps regulate many bodily systems. Mother's milk has endo-cannabinoids and you produce your own, or not. You could be suffering from clinical Endo-Cannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome (CEDS). The Hemp family of plants is the best source of cannabinoids. One cannabinoid, CBD, just may be the greatest supplement of our lifetime.
