It’s Only Been Since 1974

This is dedicated to all the dope heads and pot conventioneers out there (my German mother used to accuse me of going to pot conventions, whatever that meant). In 1979 I was aware of cannabis’ medical benefits because I knew they helped my migraines that were debilitating. I didn’t have regular access but there were a couple of times that it was the only thing that helped.

I was told what a waste I would be.That using cannabis would demotivate me and I would never achieve anything. Even after the way this country is being dismantled, I am far better off than most people. I have gone years without partaking of the medicine because it is illegal and I could lose my job. Its the same old story of those in the know.

To this day I know its healing properties are being held from us purposefully. And I am not just talking about keeping you from puking on chemo. I am talking about this shit can KILL CANCER.

Yes, it has been proven more than once.

As far back as 1974 we have a study by the Medical College of Virginia, funded by the National Institute of Health,  that showed THC shrinks lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia in rats when injected. Unless you read here, you may not have even heard of this study.

Why?

Because the DEA shuttled it, hid the results, and stopped any further studies. In 1976, Gerald Ford ended research and tried to make it where only Big Pharma could synthesize the components (which thus far is basically a failure).

It then took the Spanish the balls to replicate the miracle.

The Madrid researchers reported in the March issue of “Nature Medicine” that they injected the brains of 45 rats with cancer cells, producing tumors whose presence they confirmed through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). On the 12th day they injected 15 of the rats with THC and 15 with Win-55,212-2 a synthetic compound similar to THC. “All the rats left untreated uniformly died 12-18 days after glioma (brain cancer) cell inoculation … Cannabinoid (THC)-treated rats survived significantly longer than control rats. THC administration was ineffective in three rats, which died by days 16-18. Nine of the THC-treated rats surpassed the time of death of untreated rats, and survived up to 19-35 days. Moreover, the tumor was completely eradicated in three of the treated rats.” The rats treated with Win-55,212-2 showed similar results.

The Spanish researchers, led by Dr. Manuel Guzman of Complutense University, also irrigated healthy rats’ brains with large doses of THC for seven days, to test for harmful biochemical or neurological effects. They found none.

“Careful MRI analysis of all those tumor-free rats showed no sign of damage related to necrosis, edema, infection or trauma … We also examined other potential side effects of cannabinoid administration. In both tumor-free and tumor-bearing rats, cannabinoid administration induced no substantial change in behavioral parameters such as motor coordination or physical activity. Food and water intake as well as body weight gain were unaffected during and after cannabinoid delivery. Likewise, the general hematological profiles of cannabinoid-treated rats were normal. Thus, neither biochemical parameters nor markers of tissue damage changed substantially during the 7-day delivery period or for at least 2 months after cannabinoid treatment ended.”

There are those idiots or hacks that come here to dissuade such information with straw men arguments but they never have the ability to negate the truth. Many people are afraid to even discuss the subject but it is getting better.

The mind screw that anyone and everyone that partakes of cannabis is a worthless pot head, without understanding the medical benefits (and miracles) this stuff presents is only harming themselves and others.

That is foolish or intentionally trying to harm others. Either way you are supporting profits of Big Business while killing your fellow citizens.

“Marijuana is safe, we know it is safe. It’s our cash cow and we will never give up,” Nelson said to the audience of doctors and nurses.

Anxious Anticipation of Jeff Sessions Chronic Illness

The Drumpfter contingent, much like the Bushies of old, have embraced Jeff Sessions because they think he will stop illegal immigration and pretend he is some stalwart, fair, constitutionalist. Morons. But this ain’t about the Drumpfter idiots BELIEVING the lies of their savior, The Don. This is about The Don’s criminally insane AG, Jeff Session’s obvious rescue of Big Meds and Big Insurance.

Apparently, we have only one realistic opportunity to save the advances made against the drug war. That is for Jeff Sessions to get some devastating illness that cannabis would help heal.

I am always amused at the people that disparage cannabis, especially those who act as if they are morally superior because they have “never touched the stuff”. I can think back to countless people, especially back in the 70’s and 80’s that kept insisting, in authoritative tones, that smoking weed would give you cancer, make your hair fall out, and give you unsettling urges to rape white women. I will admit that my hair has fallen out, but I seriously doubt it was weed, but moreso the genes my Mother passed down to me from my bald-headed German ancestors.

Sessions, a man who has the advantage of the best health care in America, at virtually no cost to himself, still thinks that cannabis is a worthless substance that only dregs and deplorables would even consider using. An antiquated, drug warrior idiot such as himself may actually believe such bullshit, although I am quite confident he does know better and this entire scenario is something that is much more sinister in the making.

He has whatever agenda he has (instructed from on high) and it seems our only hope is that he gets very sick, very fast, and is made to use the miracle medicine to save his worthless life. Just like this judge, who ruined hundreds of lives over cannabis, but saw the light when a killer illness forced him into evaluating the substance.

Florida judge Doug Bench admitting his idiotic mistake

After a lifetime of study, I am now of the opinion (I am not a doctor) that heavy users of cannabis will likely get far fewer cancers than normies. Smoking cannabis will not give you lung cancer, although it can give you some breathing issues. Vaporizing totally eliminates that issue. Eating it, even less a problem.

Also, I have pointed out study after study that shows how the constituents of cannabis can actually KILL cancer cells. So, when you read that users could have potentially healed themselves from cancer by taking cannabis, but the dangerous chemo-therapy meds for cancer killed them first, maybe we should pay heed to the realities of cancer and Big Meds unending desire to make money and kill you simultaneously.

I mean, its not like Chemotherapy doesn’t help kill you even faster, right?

A quote taken from one of my favorite medical marijuana sites, Patients for Medical Cannabis :

  • stormcrow1

Some further reading- “Pot compound seen as tool against cancer” (SFGate- where CBD deactivates the ID-1 gene in triple negative breast cancer, making it easier to treat). “Cannabis extract treatment for terminal acute lymphoblastic leukemia with a Philadelphia chromosome mutation” (PubMed- where a girl was successfully fighting off an aggressive form of leukemia with RSO (concentrated cannabis extract), but she dies of complications caused by her previous chemo and radiation therapy.) And “Cannabinoids Increase Lung Cancer Cell Lysis By Lymphokine-Activated Killer Cells Via Upregulation of ICAM-1” (PubMed where THC and CBD help your body’s Killer Cells by making the cancer cells “sticky” so the Killer cells can destroy the cancer cells more easily!) There is a LOT more to cannabis than just getting high!«

I had two friends that were regular partakers of the vile weed. Over one and half decades, both succumbed to pressures from wives that they should stop using it. Within a year, my first buddy contracted a lung cancer and his wife refused to allow him to self medicate. He lost a hundred pounds and died a shriveled up old man of 36 (chemo death). The second friend basically did the same way a decade later. Stopped using and was dead in a year or two from cancer after a long, sickening fight (she wouldn’t allow him to use and he suffered).

There is a reason why the Trump Admin selected the monster Drug Warrior, Jeff Sessions. They are going to protect the Medical Mafia’s money scam. And they are going to willfully kill as many people as possible while profiting.

It is what they do.

I cover all sorts of ailments that are healed and/or alleviated by cannabis. Remember the Parkinson old guy? There is an ever-growing list of ailments this miracle wonder helps. You can use this link to peruse many posts that outline the efficacy of this medicine.

Frankly, this will come down to the older people either getting sick and finding the healing miracle drug (and telling the world). Or they need to die the fuck off so people can heal themselves without the threat of jail and ruined lives.

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD)

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

MM_CU02

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“:

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

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.

METHODS:

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

RESULTS:

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.

CONCLUSION:

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)?

endocabbinoid-ssystem

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?

The Real Efficacy Is The Whole Plant

Big Meds want to make their Big Money from breaking down the plant into different individualized components. But the fact is that virtually anyone and everyone who has used this plant will tell you the plant works better than the “medicine” produced. Here is Dennis Hill’s graphic and explanation:

doi:10.1016/j.tips.2009.07.006

Which is better for healing, whole plant medicine or a single element pharmaceutical? Why is it that patients given the choice prefer the whole plant? There are many reasons for this, but they generally boil down to one thing, all the various cannabinoids, enzymes, terpenes, phenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and other elements in cannabis work together synergistically to provide a robust healing effect. One researcher calls this the Entourage Effect. Here, entourage refers to the aggregate of all the synergistic elements in the cannabis plant. Below is a chart showing six different cannabinoids and their effects on the human body. So we see how many different benefits arise from this entourage of cannabinoids. The variety of cannabis terpenes, flavonoids, and enzymes are also beneficial.
There is no doubt that pharmaceutical houses will want in on the cannabis bonanza. If they follow their tradition we will see single element drugs giving us synthetic THC or CBD, but my hope is they will see the wisdom in whole plant medicine.

~Dennis Hill

Why Weed? ‘Cause God Made You That Way

Whether you believe in Intelligent Design or Evolutionary design (whether God put them there or we evolved them), the fact is that your body has more cannabinoid receptors than any other receptor known to man. What possible purpose could this have? What are the chances that we have these receptors, but aren’t supposed to use them?

Atheists may have a hard time with this, because they don’t believe there is an intelligent design. Religionists may have a problem with it because they find it impossible to reconcile the propaganda of decades that told them how evil cannabis is, yet they have a body designed to receive this medicine.

No, the fact is that our bodies were designed to be this way.

If there is not a medical reason for our body to receive these cannabinoids, why are they there?

BBC special on Cannabinoid Receptors…below an article by Steve Kubby, Sierra Times …A new study published in Nature Reviews-Cancer provides an historic and detailed explanation about how THC and natural cannabinoids counteract cancer, but preserve normal cells. It is hard to believe that the knowledge that cannabis can be used to fight cancer has been suppressed for almost thirty years , yet it seems likely that it will continue to be suppressed. Why? According to Cowan, the answer is because it is a threat to cannabis prohibition . “If this article and its predecessors from 2000 and 1974 were the only evidence of the suppression of medical cannabis, then one might perhaps be able to rationalize it in some herniated way. However, there really is massive proof that the suppression of medical cannabis represents the greatest failure of the institutions of a free society, medicine, journalism, science, and our fundamental values,” Cowan notes. Millions of people have died horrible deaths and in many cases, families exhausted their savings on dangerous, toxic and expensive drugs. Now we are just beginning to realize that while marijuana has never killed anyone, marijuana prohibition has killed millions.

And now the government agencies are forced to admit its efficacy regarding cancer (this is major)

US National Cancer Institute Now Lists Cannabis as Potential Cancer Treatment

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is the United State’s primary agency in which cancer research and training is conducted. They are part of a larger umbrella of governmental agencies that comprise the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The NCI is largely responsible for the running the National Cancer Program, providing cancer-related information to the public, as well as developing programs and recommendations for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer.

Now listed on the the NCI’s Cannabis and Cannabinoids page, which is assumed to be the United State’s official position regarding Marijuana’s potential application in treating cancer, are the following facts:

  • Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.
  • A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.
  • A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.
  • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.
  • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.

The page also discusses several other potential medical applications for Cannabis and Cannabinoids such as pain relief, appetite stimulation, as well as it being an effective treatment for nausea, anxiety, and depression.

The page concludes by stating the FDA has not approved Cannabis or any Cannabinoids for the treatment of cancer, but that two Cannabinoids (dronabinal and nabilone) are currently approved for the treatment of chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting.

The NCI’s page on Cannabinoids and Cannabis as a treatment for cancer gives the impression that the currently schedule I substance, Marijuana, holds tremendous potential for medical applications.

“Cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells”

 

The time draws near that America will embrace this miracle cure. We should be pissed that they have intentionally hid it from us, and worse, made anyone who did know this out to be criminals… ruining lives and perpetuating pain and suffering to make Big Meds and other Big Money entities even richer.

Cancer Myths And How The Miracle Medicine Works

The cancer industry is just that… Industry (as in a commercial enterprise)

Cancer is often considered a by product of our environment and food intake (among other potential causation). It is evident that something has caused a humungous rise in cancers and deaths over the past one hundred years (or more) and the notion that genetics, alone, as the main cause cannot be true. It is a man-made phenomena:

‘In industrialised societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare.

‘There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.

‘The important thing about our study is that it gives a historical perspective to this disease. We can make very clear statements on the cancer rates in societies because we have a full overview. We have looked at millennia, not one hundred years, and have masses of data.

‘Yet again extensive ancient Egyptian data, along with other data from across the millennia, has given modern society a clear message – cancer is man-made and something that we can and should address.’

Follow The Money

I also subscribe to the idea that one should follow the money, and the fact is that the cancer industry is Big Money. This same Doctor explained in a Wall Street Journal article:

“These drugs cost too much,” Leonard Saltz, chief of gastrointestinal oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, said in a speech heard by thousands of doctors here for the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Dr. Saltz’s remarks focused mainly on an experimental melanoma treatment made by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. , but he also criticized pricing more widely. He cited statistics showing that the median monthly price for new cancer drugs in the U.S. had more than doubled in inflation-adjusted dollars from $4,716 in the period from 2000 through 2004 to roughly $9,900 from 2010 through 2014. Dr. Saltz cited studies showing that the price increases haven’t corresponded to increases in the drugs’ effectiveness.

“Cancer-drug prices are not related to the value of the drug,” Dr. Saltz said. “Prices are based on what has come before and what the seller believes the market will bear.”

The thing about Big Money is that they will lie with abandon just to continue making the buck (irregardless of the harm done).

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness…

Every now and again, guilt of complicity takes a hold of a few and the decent ones will explain the corruption (much to the chagrin of others caught up in the lies).

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.

Cancer Industry Myths Versus Facts

There are 5 basic facts that the cancer industry promotes as myths (see at Prevent Disease):

    1. The rise in all types of cancer is due to modern diet, lifestyle, and environment. Records of lifespan prior to the 18th century are scarce, but in all records of studied prehistoric skeletons, only 200 cases of possible cancer have been found. However, from 1900-2011, cancer deaths have increased 3 foldOne researcher found that in 80% of processed food, 4 main ingredients are found which harm immunity: corn, wheat, soy, and meat.
    2. Superfoods and herbs can prevent cancer. This is true in many cases. In fact, there are 17 herbs and spices which in their own right are considered super-foods, and have been scientifically proven to prevent and treat cancer.
    3. Acidic diets cause cancer. Blood pH should be within a range of 7.3 to 7.41. If the pH is lower than that range, acidosis occurs, which leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis (below 7.0) can cause coma and death. If the pH rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Keeping the body closer to an alkaline state (up to .05) can make a significant difference in cancer growth or suppression. Cancer cells can’t live in an alkaline environment.
    4. Sugar feeds cancer. A four-year study at the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection in the Netherlands compared 111 biliary tract cancer patients with 480 controls. Cancer risk associated with the intake of sugars, independent of other energy sources, more than doubled for the cancer patients. Another epidemiological study covering 21 modern countries (Europe, North America, Japan and others) found that sugar intake is a strong risk factor for higher breast cancer rates, especially in older women.
    5. Conventional cancer treatment kills more than it cures. Five year relative survival rates for cancer are standard because after 5 years, many patients’ conditions worsen. More accurate long-term statistics would reflect ten years or more, as well as data on cost-effectiveness, immune system impact, quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. When these factors are considered, chemotherapy makes little to no contribution to cancer survival.

How The Miracle Medicine Actually Works

As long as we continue to believe these myths hiding as the “industry’s” facts, we will continue to get sick and die at alarming rates. But I would not be complete without addressing other “myths”, especially regarding the usage of cannabis. I address these myths and lies about medical cannabis often (and that barely covers all the posts on the subject here).

Even though we are seeing that some of the Industry is being forced to admit that there are medical benefits to cannabis, they are still trying to make money from it. Tactics include deriving certain compounds from the plant and synthesizing it into product. They minimize certain other compounds that also have wonderful benefits, even to the point of perpetuating the idea of illegality, except for their “product”. THC is a prime example of this bait and switch.

All of us have heard about the usage and promotion of CBD’s. The media and government pushes it to no end and many states are enacting laws to make this substance available, especially “for the children”. Yes, high CBD oils DO, in fact, stop deadly cancers, as seen in this presentation (but that does not mean that the THC contained in that oil was not helpful).

I am not poo-pooing CBD’s, especially in natural forms. But the fact is that THC, the demonized constituent (because it gets you high), is also as much, if not more so, medically effectual.

Case in point is how THC attacks breast cancer cells and KILLS them.

THC has the miraculous capacity to help those who suffer from cancer. The wonder compound increases appetite, reduces nausea and can even help to quell pains that patients suffer from cancer and its unpleasant list of symptoms. However, despite the numerous findings and studies that have been published about this, cannabis is still vilified by the government and kept federally illegal.

A clip from documentary called “Clearing the Smoke” depicts a microscopic view of cancer cells that have had THC administered to them, which causes the malignant cells to weaken and eventually die completely.

In the beginning of the video, the malignant cancer cells are seen quickly moving under the lens of the microscope. But as the THC molecules begin to affect them, they turn blue and begin to slow down. Eventually they cease moving completely and some can even be seen dying from the effects of the THC near the end of the clip.

The video itself is fantastic visual evidence that THC, even administered in low doses (as was depicted), can be a highly-effective tool in the ongoing fight against cancer.

News as exciting as this is not something new to the federal government; in fact, a study that was published in the August 18, 1974 issue of the Washington Post reported finding that THC “slowed the growth of lung cancer, breast cancers, and virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives as much as 36 percent.”

The results themselves read: “Animals treated for 10 consecutive days with delta-9-THC, beginning the day after tumor implantation, demonstrated a dose-dependent action of retarded tumor growth. Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with delta-8-THC and CBN had reduced primary tumor size.”

The study was conducted by a team of researchers at the Medical College of Virginia acting on the behalf of the federal government. Unfortunately, the government was unhappy with the results and had U.S. officials dismiss the study completely and buried it under the Watergate scandal. The findings were eventually published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute a year later.

No new reports of findings regarding THC and cancer surfaced after this study until a clinical trial that was conducted in the mid-1990s. This study was conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology program and worked off a $2 million federal budget.

The clinical trials gave very similar results: “that mice and rats administered high doses of THC over long periods experienced greater protection against malignant tumors than untreated controls.”

Even tests conducted throughout the world have found similar results to these. In 1998, researchers at Madrid’s Complutense University released a study that concluded that by administering THC to malignant brain tumor cells, the doctors were able to selectively induce apoptosis, or planned cell death. This allowed the researchers to systematically kill individual cancer cells without harming any of the nearby healthy cells.

And yet government officials and politicians have been adamant in keeping the law the same and condemning cannabis to be federally illegal, making this form of treatment an impossibility for a majority of U.S. cancer patients.

Hopefully this video will be enough visual and scientific proof that THC can be beneficial to be used by those suffering from cancer. At the very least, it may be able to save a few lives from suffering and bring new hope to those who are fighting cancer.

 Disregard Their Lies

Next time you hear the talking heads and profiteers demonize THC, remember the truth. When they say it is the gateway drug, understand that they have an ulterior motive. Remember that using the entire plant is much more efficient than the constituents alone (especially the synthetics). Remember that the Industrial Prison Complex and other criminal organizations (such as police forces who would rather arrest plant users than arrest rapists and murderers) have a vested interest in keeping the miracle medicine out of your hands. Remember the ability for these very criminals in blue to take your hard earned money (and even vibrators) in asset forfeiture.

How The Human Body Processes Cannabis

Beginner’s Guide To The Endocannabinoid System — The Reason Our Bodies So Easily Processes Cannabis

Dr. Allen, retired cardiac surgeon & cannabinoid research scientist enlightens us about the Endocannabinoid System.

In the future, perhaps 20 years from now, cannabis-based medicines will have a prominent place in the worldwide pharmacopeianaked-baby-makers again. Indeed, we might have even gotten there much faster if it hadn’t been for the draconian interference of the U.S. government. To this day, they are still blocking researchers from accessing cannabis to study. Countless thousands have died suffering and millions more continue to be denied access to plant-based medications that could not only mitigate their misery, but also possibly even cure them.Cannabis medications work so efficiently because of the endocannabinoid (EC) system, present in all humans and many animals as well. This system consists of a series of receptors that are configured only to accept cannabinoids, especially tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Not enough research has been done on the other ones, cannabinol (CBN) and cannabigerol (CBG) plus others, to know much about their mechanisms of effect.This system, an integral part of our physiologies, was discovered in the mid-1990s by Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam who also identified THC as the main active ingredient in cannabis in the early 1960s. Israel has been one of the most progressive nations for cannabis research and currently has one of the most advanced medical marijuana programs in the world. They are international leaders in advanced greenhouse technology, routinely producing flowers with 20 percent or greater THC.Dr. Mechoulam’s world-changing research discovered two main receptors, cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2), that are keyed to both the endocannabinoids that our body naturally produces and phytocannabinoids (plant-based) like THC and CBD. Our bodies actually produce the ECs similar to how our body produces narcotic-like endorphins. Synthetic cannabinoids, like the ones found in Marinol, also fit the receptor sites but don’t work as efficiently as the natural ones.

This research barely created a stir when first published as the whole world was still wrapped up in drug war madness. A prominent scientist discovers that our bodies not only have receptor sites cued just for cannabinoids but that our bodies actually produce them internally. The next step was to figure out how this affects our body’s functioning.

grandma-says

CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain, although they are also both present in the male and female reproductive organs. Current research shows that THC is specifically keyed to the CB1 site. Therefore it is responsible for the feeling of intoxication that is the most familiar aspect of cannabis. From a therapeutic standpoint, it’s most important effect is to modulate and moderate the perception of pain. For example, touching a finger to a hot stove sends an electrical impulse that goes from the finger to the brain. The brain replies, “ouch, hot” and the finger is pulled away.

THC moderates pain; this doesn’t mean we leave our finger on the stove, but that the intensity of the painful feeling is reduced when THC is present in the CB1 site. This mechanism of action is why THC-rich medicines are so prized by people with intense pain issues. Cannabis and narcotics are also co-agonists, which means that each of them magnifies the effect of the other. This allows people to take lower doses and still have it be effective. Additionally, CB1 receptors are not present in the part of the brain that regulates heart rate and respiration, so unlike narcotics, there is no lethal dosage threshold for THC, allowing someone to consume as much is needed for its palliative effects.

polsreefer39762_thumbCB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system with the highest concentration located in the spleen. There is some evidence that the receptors might also be in the micro parts of the brain’s basal ganglia, or nerve bundles. Again, a lack of comprehensive research has left many without the knowledge that should be widely available.

The CB2 receptors are keyed to CBD and works as an anti-inflammatory agent. The immune-boosting functions of CB2 are far less understood as research into CBD is just really beginning. It’s only been about five years since CBD re-emerged in the medical cannabis scene and was identified through Steephill Labs. The benefits of CBD-rich medicine, with its anti-spasmodic qualities, is one the most exciting and promising areas of cannabis medical research currently happening. One of the other effects of CBD is that it moderates the effects of THC. It actually knocks THC off the CB1 receptor, so if someone is experiencing THC intoxication, a strong dose of CBD can counteract those effects. The future of CBD-rich medicines is almost limitless. Indeed, we have just barely scratched the surface of planet cannabis.

THC and CBD are the two main cannabinoids that are focused on, however there are dozens and possibly hundreds more. Some of the ones that have been identified and studied include CBG, which binds to both CB1 as well as CB2 and is an antagonist to CB1, meaning that it moderates the effects of THC. Cannabichromene (CBC) is non-psychoactive and has both anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. CBN occurs when THC degrades. For this reason, it is rarely seen in fresh cannabis and is only mildly psychoactive, having a mostly sleepy effect. Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is another cannabinoid usually found in central Asian and southern African strains that also acts as a THC antagonist. There are more cannabinoids than can be listed here and they all have the potential to be as life changing as CBD is turning out to be.

The fact that there is a system in our body that produces cannabinoids, and is specifically designed to accept just them, should be overwhelming proof of cannabis’ efficacy as a medicine. From the pain-killing effects of THC to the anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, we have just scratched the surface of a world of possibilities. People are waking up to the benefits of these medicines as more researchers are exploring the infinite possibilities inherent in this seemingly simple plant. Future generations will look back and wonder why it took so long to figure this out.
