Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD)

I told you that the stuff was made for your body.


As hard as that is to believe (due to all the decades of brainwashing we’ve been subjected to), there are benefits to the miracle plant which include filling the deficiencies that lead to “migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions“:



Ethan B. Russo’s paper of December 1, 2003 explored the concept of a clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) underlying the pathophysiology of migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other functional conditions alleviated by clinical cannabis.


Available literature was reviewed, including searches via the National Library of medicine database and other sources.


A review of the literature indicates that significant progress has been made since Dr. Ethan B. Russo’s landmark paper, just ten years ago (February 2, 2004). Investigation at that time suggested that cannabinoids can block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestional mechanisms that promote pain in headache, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and muscle spasm.


Subsequent research has confirmed that underlying endocannabinoid deficiencies indeed play a role in migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and a growing list of other medical conditions. Clinical experience is bearing this out. Further research and especially, clinical trials will further demonstrate the usefulness of medical cannabis. As legal barriers fall and scientific bias fades this will become more apparent.

The list of ailments this miracle medicine can help (and cure) is extensive. As a matter of fact, there may be NO ailment that it cannot help in some way. Why do you think Big Meds wants it kept illegal (obviously profit motives)? Or why would they try to synthesize the constituents for profit (which has caused horrible outcomes that the real thing never has caused in history)?


tobacco_kills_cannabis_heals_postcardsMany people I know are still so hoodwinked about it. Maybe you believe the lies (like how it might make you stupid, even as a heavy user, when I contend it does the opposite). Maybe you had a bad experience and didn’t like getting “high”. But what I am talking about isn’t the wonderful high (in my opinion), but the medical efficacy that one gets from it via ingestion. If you are hung up on smoke harming your lungs, then vaporize it and there is absolutely ZERO affect on your lungs. But one can take a rice sized drop of the oil on their tongue or added to a drink. Or, if it were truly legalized (as it should be), then one could add it to a salad for raw consumption (and no way to get high). Even the old standard lie about the joint being SEVEN TIMES MORE CARCINOGENIC AS CIGARETTES has been proved false (as I have claimed many times in my life). As a matter of fact, it PROTECTS against cancer (and is far less harmful, if at all, than cigarettes).

Even some of my closest links to the side over there are against weed and its legalization (and these are supposedly people with a liberty bend to their writing/work). I cannot grasp such a contradictory stance. Hence, my guess it is either ignorance or misunderstanding or a personal bad experience.

People do not have to be unproductive dope heads to heal themselves.

But why do I feel I need to write such an obvious sentence?

  1. A family member has been diagnosed with lung cancer after years of cigarette smoking. Sadly this is not one of the 15 states where CBD oil is legal. It is legal in the next state to the south. Legalization of medical or recreational cannabis will happen when hell freezes over in this state.
    Big pharma would never allow the growing of a plant in your back yard to cut into their profit margins. After all those commercials on teevee aren’t cheap. Now trust your doctor he just got a batch of pills from the source and needs to meet that bonus for pushing them.


  2. I’ve never even smoked tobacco, let alone marijuana; and I have to confess that, being ignorant of all of the medical research on both sides of the issue, the principal source of my resistance to marijuana use is culturally rooted. I know that a lot of intellectuals and artists like Jack Kerouac and Paul Bowles have used marijuana and that it hasn’t stood in the way of their creativity, but every person I’ve ever known to use the stuff has been a low-achievement type, and it’s almost always a car full of hood rats that sends a cloud of it in my direction. I’m subject to drug testing at any time where I work, so I’m not looking to experiment; but I have come to understand how much of the “science” promoted as truth, whether in climatology or sexual psychology, is politically motivated and highly manipulated. So I’ll try to keep an open mind.


    • being ignorant of all of the medical research on both sides of the issue

      At this point, there really is no “both sides of the issue” when it comes to medical efficacy. Until recently, there was very little “research” that wasn’t wholly controlled by those with a profit motive (mainly Big Meds and the government). Nowadays, this monopoly is broken and other sources prove that we have been lied to as long as I can remember (and much longer).

      when Nixon endorsed a study in the 70’s, the results were NOT what TPTB wanted known (or what they expected). So the results were hidden.

      Yes, there are those who use but don’t know the full medical rationale, because frankly, one can get high. But even those hood rats getting high are far less a problem (especially from a law standpoint) than anyone doing any other drug of any type (legal or illicit). And even less so than those using alcohol.
