TOP 10 DISEASES WHERE SMOKING WEED HAS IMPACT

Medical Marijuana used in recreational settings shows weed smokers benefit from it. So here are the top 10 diseases where use of marijuana can be benefited.

  1. AIDS/HIV

Also known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome / Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

Scientists believe that the HIV started with a certain type of chimpanzee  in Central Africa which carries Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (the chimpanzee version of aids) .

Human hunted the chimpanzees for meat and came into contact with their infected blood that transformed into HIV.

Research shows that people with AIDS/HIV who smoked marijuana have better sleep, gained appetite, have better moods and showed less neuropathic pain.

  1. Alzheimer’s

This is a disease caused by brain cell death. This disease is also known as the most common type of DEMENTIA or the loss of mental ability due to the increasing death of cells in the brain.

Although, studies show that it is common on people 65 of age and older, approximately 200,000 individuals are under the age of 65. Someone develops this disease in every 67 seconds in the US.

Smoking marijuana and some of the plant’s chemicals have been used to help patients with Alzheimer gain weight and it also lessens some troubled or nervous behaviours of the patients.

Researchers found it slowed the development of protein deposits in the brain which scientists think may be a part of what causes Alzheimer’s although no one really knows what causes the disease.

  1. Arthritis

Arthritis  is informally known as joint pain or joint disease.

There was a study made on 58 patients who uses the by-product of marijuana found that they had less pain and that they can sleep better. Another review of studies said that marijuana may help fight pain-causing inflammation.

  1. Asthma

Is a “chronic inflammatory disease of the airway” that causes shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, coughing and wheezing.

Studies are contradicting, but some early finding suggests that it reduced exercise-induced asthma.  Other cell studies showed that smoking weed could dilate human airways, but some patients experienced tight feeling on their chest and throat.

  1. Cancer

Is a name given to a collection of related diseases which can start anywhere in the body which is made up of trillions of cells.

As a normal process, human cells prow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them and when cells grow old or become damaged, they die and new cells take place.

When cancer develops, this orderly process breaks down. As cells become old or damaged, they survive when they should die and new cells form when they are not needed. These extra cells can divide without stopping and may form growths called TUMORS.

Animal studies show that some marijuana extracts may kill cancer cells and some other cell studies show that it may stop cancer growth. With mice, THC improved the impact of radiation on cancer cells.

Smoking marijuana can also prevent nausea on chemotherapy patients.

  1. Chronic Pain

Is a pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Signals of pain remain active in the nervous system and can also last for years. Chronic pain has impact on both physical and emotional state of a person.

The physical pain felt by the body, in the long run can cause depression, anger, anxiety and fatigue which interact in complex ways with chronic pain making it worse and can decrease the body’s production of natural pain killers; to add up, such negative feelings may increase the level of substances that extend sensations of pain, resulting to a dangerous cycle of pain for the person.

People widely used cannabinoids for pain relief in the 1800s due to some animal and human studies which show that cannabinoids have a substantial analgesic effect.

Other medicine based on cannabis such as “SATIVEX” are being tested on patients with multiple sclerosis and used to treat cancer pain. This drug has been approved in Canada and in some European countries. Scientists also show a 30% in reduction in pain involving 56 human patients who smoked weed.

  1. Crohn’s disease

An inflammation that develops anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract (GI), from mouth to anus.

In a small initial study of 13 patients observed over three months, they found that inhaled cannabis did improve life of people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.  It helped ease pain, limited the repetition of diarrhea and helped with appetite.

  1. Epilepsy

This is a common brain disorder characterized by recurrent seizures.  Varied as 2 or more seizures diagnosed based on the description of episodes; person’s medical and family history and results of diagnostic tests.

Trials conducted at NYU Langone Medical Center showed a 50% of reduction in the frequency of certain seizures in 213 patients (children and adult) who took medical marijuana extracts.

  1. Glaucoma

Is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss.

This is one of the main causes of blindness.

Researches proved that THC’s effect on this disease and found that it can lower eye pressure. It may also lower blood pressure, which could harm the optic nerve due to reduced blood supply. THC can also help preserve the nerves.

  1. Multiple Sclerosis

This is a disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord. This happens when the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. In the long run it can cause nerves themselves to decay or become constantly damaged.

There is no known cure for MS. Using marijuana or some of the chemicals in the plant may help avoid muscle spasms, pain tremors and stiffness. Side effect on a study involving 20 patients is that it may harm memory.

Good Weed Vs Bad Weed

Difference Between Good and Bad Weed (Good Weed Vs Bad Weed)

Let’s face it. When you are a pot smoker, either new or veteran, you always want to buy good quality weed. Quality is always a must and we all know that there is a price to pay for a good quality weed and here at Mc Chronalds this is something that we value. The weed that we sell and give our customers are being selected personally by Ron to ensure that all of you get the quality that you truly deserve.

 

The question is, how can we distinguish the good weed from the bad weed? Here are some pointers to consider when selecting a good quality weed.

  1. Also called as trichome. When you closely look at the weed and you see a lot of crystals in it, then it’s a good sign that the weed is going to give you a pretty high. If you have a grinder, then you can catch the crystals and make sure to never miss it once you roll a joint or whoever way you smoke the weed.

  2. The buds are not too dry nor too wet.

    A sign of a good weed is that you can feel that it is a little bit sticky when you break it. It should not be too dry that it just crumbles when you break it. On the other side, if your weed is too wet then it is not also a good thing.  You should be able to stretch the weed in the most possible way you can.

  3. Color.

    Good weed should always be green in color with a touch of purple, red or orange hairs in it. BROWN color is a bad weed. Look also for hairs on the buds, a good sign of a Primo weed is that is has a lot of hairs.

    Trainwreck1

  4. SMELL

    Dank weed usually smells so strong that you could even smell it right from the bag. You might also notice the fruity aroma from those strains like grapefruit or bubble gum. Bad weed smells like dried leaves or sometimes doesn’t have smell at all.

  5.  EXPERIENCE COUNTS

    If you have been smoking weed for some time, then probably you have an idea that the one you have is either good or bad. The more and more you buy, the better are your chances of being a pro when it comes to identifying what is good or not.

     

Mail Order Marijuana- Don’t get ripped off online!

Ordering Weed online? Then be sure to read the following before ordering marijuana online.

For over a decade, Canadians have been able to order particularly potent strains of marijuana, hashish, and other cannabis products online and have them shipped via snail mail in Canada.

Several Canadian websites are known for delivering high-quality cannabis straight to the consumer. The ordering process is straightforward. You pay via Online Banking Email Interac money transfer. It is shipped via Xpresspost courier, Canada post, you will be emailed the tracking number, trackable, no signature required, product is vacuum packed, no odor, no telling return address, no one will know what you got from Vancouver. You will know the delivery date. If you so desire, your package can be delivered to a local post office outlet for pickup.

In the USA, with D.C. and four states having legalized marijuana for recreational use, more civilized ways to get weed are finally emerging. However, for those who don’t live within “legalized” borders, buying weed online is the next safest route.

Stay away from buying pot online through classified sites like Craigslist due to possible scams. You should really beware buying anything on the internet from a not reputable source. And realize that there is an added element when you are buying marijuana online. You can get ripped off,

I know that it’s tough when you can’t find marijuana. I can understand that it’s tempting to try out one of the people online to see if they are legit or not. But remember, there are bad people out there on the internet that are scamming people using all kinds of stories. Using promises to provide marijuana is just one of the latest scams. These are the same people that are pretending to be princes from Nigeria, or a long lost relative from Europe.

So, in Canada for instance, how do several, reputable online suppliers, in business for many years, distribute marijuana in a country where recreational use is still illegal? The answer lies in the structure of Canada’s medical marijuana program.

Thousands of Canadian medical marijuana users are legally eligible to order marijuana from federally-licensed growers online. The weed is then carefully packaged and shipped to recipients via Canada Post or private courier systems. Prescription cannabis must be shipped according to certain standards, therefore online mail order weed companies ship their products in the same manner to recreational users. With so much marijuana being shipped across the country, and there is a lot, it would be easy for ‘contraband’ packages to sneak in amid ‘legitimate’ packages.

In business for many years without a problem, one of the first Canadian online sellers to recreational users states,
We are a legitimate business whose goal is to provide high-quality products and good customer service. We have an excellent reputation for being trustworthy and reliable. We believe that marijuana should be made available to all Canadians in a safe and responsible way….Our goal is to provide a service for personal use only…We believe in the legalization of marijuana and ending the stupid war on drugs… We are discreet in our shipping and operations, we do not seek publicity, and we advertise mainly through word of mouth. So far, Canadian police have had higher priorities than going after us. However, there is certainly a risk involved for us in doing this. We have never had a customer suffer a legal problem due to ordering from us. However, marijuana is still illegal in Canada, and there is always some potential risk. You can do your part by advocating among your friends and relatives an acceptance of marijuana. When the time comes to vote it would be nice if we were organized and supported one another”.

Another Online Marijuana vender says,
We believe that marijuana should be made legal (and it will soon) and so do the majority of Canadians who have suffered from this ongoing witch hunt for the last 60 years. It should be your sovereign right to possess a plant that naturally grows on planet earth as long as you do not harm others….If you are not yet a repeat customer, you might be thinking…Is this real? It must be a scam. well…we are very real and here to help you and your friends acquire the finest bud, food, hash, and other products that might be difficult to find in your local city or town in Canada. Remember that some cities in Canada are very tolerant of pot….”

Always order from a reputable source.

Why would my friends go back to buying weed from people on the street or friends who usually have one kind of weed to sell, and the count might be low, quality sucks, and forget about variety of Grade AAA strains and products such as shatter, wax, extracts and hash. Mail Order is now the best option. http://buyweedonline.ca/ Free shipping with coupon code – ‘72162’ at checkout. McChronalds is the best, if you care to know.

Weed can be very, very destructive, to young minds!

Weed is very bad for teens.

The more weed that teens consume at a younger age, the more problems they tend to have later in life. Adolescence is a sensitive time for brain development, if a teen introduces use of marijuana at that point in their life, it could very well have serious consequences for their ability to problem solve, for their memory and for critical thinking in general and those consequences are permanent, and irreversible.. Teenagers who smoke weed damage their brains for LIFE and may be more likely to develop such mental illness’s such as schizophrenia!

Why? Because the brain is still forming during teenage and young-adult years. The tissue itself is still developing connections between brain regions and producing the cells that process information. Neurodevelopment is particularly active during childhood and adolescence. Regular use of weed during that time has been linked to permanent problems with memory, learning, perception, impulse control, and more. It is true that a very clear relationship between teenage pot use and decreased cognitive function and mental health is demonstrated across the scientific community. Researchers say that marijuana is particularly dangerous for a group of teens who have a genetic susceptibility to the mental health disorder schizophrenia – and it could be the trigger for it.

What Kind of Research Has Been Done? Lots.

http://schizophreniabulletin.oxfordjournals.org/search?fulltext=Cannabis-Related+Working+Memory+Deficits+and+Associated+Subcortical+Morphological+Differences+in+Healthy+Individuals+and+Schizophrenia+Subjects&submit=yes&x=16&y=8

The study in the link above, which appeared in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, sought to distinguish the effects of daily marijuana use on the adolescent brain from the effects of schizophrenia on the deep regions of the brain that are necessary for working memory. Schizophrenia is a very disruptive illness on working memory, and a kid using weed regularly, produced many similar effects on the brain to schizophrenia. Researchers found that teens who smoked a lot of weed had abnormal changes in their brain structures related to working memory — a predictor of weak academic performance and impaired everyday functioning — and that they did poorly on memory-related tasks. The scientists noted that these effects were still apparent two years after their subjects had stopped using marijuana.

While the study focused on heavy marijuana users — specifically, those who indulged daily for about three years — one of its most crucial findings related not to the amount of weed an adolescent smoked, but when he or she started: The earlier the drug was taken up, the worse the effects on the brain.

Marijuana is the ideal compound to screw up everything for a kid, If they are into athletics, a chess player, on the debating team or an artist, you need working memory, and marijuana hurts the brain circuitry in that area if it is still developing, permanently.

Researchers at Duke University concluded a study a couple of years ago of more than 1,000 people from the time they were born until they reached the age of 38. Studies were performed periodically throughout their lives, and were carefully controlled to ensure test subjects did not have any other drug or alcohol addictions or psychological disorders, and were not high at the time of the test. They found that those who used pot more than once weekly before age 18 displayed more severely impaired intelligence, slower reaction times, shorter attention spans, and poorer listening skills than those who began using marijuana after age 18. https://today.duke.edu/2012/08/potiq

The Lancet Psychiatry‘ reported the following statistics on teens who smoked marijuana daily …
60% less likely to complete high school than those who never use.
60% less likely to graduate college.
18 times more likely to become dependent on marijuana.
8 times more likely to use other hard illegal drugs in the future.
7 times more likely to attempt suicide.
http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpsy/article/PIIS2215-0366%2814%2970307-4/abstract

It’s not just daily use. According to the researchers behind the study, teens who used cannabis just monthly were also at risk of underachievement.

According to a recent study at the University of Maryland Medical Center, published in the Neuropsychopharmacology, the study’s senior author Asaf Keller, Ph.D., Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology, “Previous research has shown that children who started using marijuana before the age of 16 are at greater risk of permanent cognitive deficits, and have a significantly higher incidence of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. There likely is a genetic susceptibility, and then you add marijuana during adolescence and it becomes the trigger.”
“Adolescence is the critical period during which marijuana use can be damaging,” says the study’s lead author, Dr Sylvina Mullins Raver, Ph.D. in Anatomy and Neurobiology,
The scientists began by examining cortical oscillations in mice. Cortical oscillations are patterns of the activity of neurons in the brain and are believed to underlie the brain’s various functions. These oscillations are very abnormal in schizophrenia and in other psychiatric disorders. The scientists exposed young mice to very low doses of the active ingredient in marijuana for 20 days, and then allowed them to return to their siblings and develop normally.
“In the adult mice exposed to marijuana ingredients in adolescence, we found that cortical oscillations were grossly altered, and they exhibited impaired cognitive abilities,” says Dr. Raver. “We also found impaired cognitive behavioral performance in those mice. The striking finding is that, even though the mice were exposed to very low drug doses, and only for a brief period during adolescence, their brain abnormalities persisted into adulthood.”

The scientists repeated the experiment, this time administering marijuana ingredients to adult mice that had never been exposed to the drug before. Their cortical oscillations and ability to perform cognitive behavioral tasks remained normal, indicating that it was only drug exposure during the critical period of adolescence that impaired cognition through this mechanism. The researchers took the next step in their studies, trying to pinpoint the mechanisms underlying these changes and the time period in which they occur.

We looked at the different regions of the brain,” says Dr. Keller. “The back of the brain develops first, and the frontal parts of the brain develop during adolescence. We found that the frontal cortex is much more affected by the drugs during adolescence. This is the area of the brain that controls executive functions such as planning and impulse control. It is also the area most affected in schizophrenia.”

Dr. Keller’s team believes that the results have indications for humans as well. They will continue to study the underlying mechanisms that cause these changes in cortical oscillations. “The purpose of studying these mechanisms is to see whether we can reverse these effects,” says Dr. Keller. “We are hoping we will learn more about schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders, which are complicated conditions. These cognitive symptoms are not affected by medication, but they might be affected by controlling these cortical oscillations.”

Many groups of scientists have studied the brains of teenagers, too. Compared to those who never used pot, the tissue in the brains of young pot users has been shown to exhibit structural changes. Specifically, the white matter (the cells in our brains that connect different areas) is more porous in subjects that began regularly using pot at a young age, a physical state associated with slower mental processing. Gray matter (the cells in the brain responsible for processing information) showed changes in shape and size, alterations that are associated with executive dysfunction, mood issues, and poor memory. In addition, the brains of teenagers who are heavy pot users have lower blood flow, develop abnormal neuron connections, and show inefficient brain activation patterns. All of these physical features are associated with poor memory, attention, impulse control, organization, and time management.

Teenagers who use weed daily have increased rates of depression, anxiety, and psychosis later in life. (Psychosis means someone has lost connection with reality—i.e., they see and/or hear things that don’t exist.), psychosis and heavy pot use in adolescence are linked.

Teens and Dopamine

For the same reason weed makes adults feel good: It releases dopamine into the brain. When you get high, dopamine signals tell your neurons that it feels good and you should do it again. Dopamine does the same thing when you have sex, listen to music you enjoy, or eat junk food. Dopamine is part of the pleasure/reward system in the brain, which is actively developing until adulthood; messing with it during adolescence can cause damage. Decreased dopamine signals in teenage pot smokers’ brains have been observed after prolonged use, meaning getting high becomes more difficult. In other words, the more weed a teen smokes now, the less happy weed will make him or her over time. And without weed, definitely unhappy, for his dopamine levels are low, permanently. It takes the joy of life away. This can make teenagers who use heavily more prone to depression, anxiety, addiction and even suicide..
So What About Adult Weed Users?

After the brain has finished developing, it is not vulnerable since neurodevelopment is basically complete. Toking up at a young age has a different effect on the brain than toking up as an adult. So have no worries, all is good.

McChronalds very strict policy – 21 years and over only- Let me tell you about Ron…

Let me tell you just a few things about Ron, the CEO, CFO, COO, GM, Quality control officer, Chief Buyer, bookkeeper, Picker, packer, shipper man of many hats. He is a very, very busy man (Honestly, he needs a vacation, bad), he had a disaster a few months back, leaving him short staffed (Also feeling betrayal), to say the least. Now, one of the things that sets McChronalds apart from the competition, is the initial phone call you must have with him, personally. One of the major reason’s for the call is to make sure you are at least 21, due diligence, and he has his ways of knowing, from what you say, or answer. You can’t con the man, you can’t fuck around with a guy who has gone through ‘the school of hard knocks’, and has been around the block several times. HE WILL KNOW YOU ARE UNDER 21, PERIOD, in a second. Woe is he the punk who tried to con Ron on the phone, I can almost hear his wrath now, berating the kid, telling him why, from authority, the truths about weed and his young mind. He doesn’t have to take all that extra time on the phone weeding out the brain damaged punks when he is running shorthanded a very busy, challenging business that is  very customer service oriented requiring same day shipping on all orders. He can make a lot more money by turning a blind eye, no vetting call, no registration required, yes, cash is OK.

Now you know why he also has the policy of never shipping to college or university residence’s, those immature, morally fucked up places at times, with most students being under 21. Yep, he wont be part of fucking up a college kids head up for life either. Ron won’t ship to a school address for the same reason as the phone call. Why? Because he cares, it isn’t about the money with him, the business is his passion, he wants to do the right thing, period. He don’t want to be even partially responsible for fucking some kids brains up for life, for money.

Now, all I will say about the competition out there, well, check out their sites, no registration, they take cash, no phone call. What does that tell you my friends? Who is the honorable one, who do you want to do business with.

Ron will never short count you, in fact, weigh your order, I will admit I have a couple of times scaled it, only because by eye, I saw there was extra, and there was. After almost 40 years buying weed, I can eyeball a good 1/4 oz count or a short count. That’s Ron. Any problem you might have, he will rectify it, plus some. The weed; It is what it is, and nothing else, guaranteed. The other sites, they sell B-grade and even C-grade, wtf? Only AAA+ with Ron.

Many others seem to realize that Ron is a busy man, I hear it in the forums when you are understanding why Ron might be a little late on a phone call or email, or whatever, Most of you are understanding and have been cool, you are all good people. Emailing and Phone calls are difficult at times when you are the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, General Manager, Chief Buyer, Quality Assurance officer, Human Resources, Picker, Packer, Shipper, HR manager and 15 more hats and training 2 people to boot, running McChronalds, basically solo. My friends, that’s what sets McChronalds apart from the others. This is why I ask you my friends, to be loyal, to make that 2nd or 5th order because it says to Ron, Thank You bro, for being there for me, for being honorable.

…………………………………………………………………………………..

Your first purchase? Well, a gift from Ron, free delivery, code 72162 at checkout!

…………………………………………………………………………………….

I think that parents have an obligation — to be even more pointed with our children by saying to them: “If you’re tempted to smoke weed, please hold off as long as you possibly can. Your beautiful brain is still developing.”

The Miracle That is Weed

The Miraculous Nature of Weed

The cannabis plant contains compounds that  have a wide range of medicinal applications throughout the body. Cannabis has a profound influence on the human body.  How can one herb help so many different conditions in so many ways? How can it provide both the ability to relieve symptoms and also have the ability to treat and cure? How can it be so safe while offering such powerful effects?

Cancer, Crohn’s disease, Epilepsy, Chronic Pain, Multiple Sclerosis, Sleep Disorders, Tourette’s syndrome, Eczema, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Anorexia, Glaucoma, Arthritis, PMS, Anxiety Disorders, Autism, Asthma, Cerebral Palsy, Constipation, Sleep Apnea, Headaches (Cluster, Migraine, Tension), Viral Hepatitis, Cystic Fibrosis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Severe Nausea, PTSD, Senile Dementia, Emphysema, Gastritis, and this is just to name a few,  I could name at the very least another 100+ ailments that marijuana helps in one way or another. All of these conditions have different causes, different physiologic states, and vastly different symptoms, all over the body. This one herb and its variety of therapeutic compounds seem to affect every aspect of our bodies and minds, whether we be male or female, young or old, American or Asian or whatever race, wherever we live in the world, how is this possible? All of the ailments with symptoms or ailments that can be treated if not cured with marijuana, we are just touching the tip of the iceberg on what we know about this weed and what immense good it can do for humanity, and it’s potential is quite profound, utterly amazing, if not miraculous. There is so much more this humble weed can do for us, that as of yet to be discovered. This herb that has been for so long stigmatized, regarded as worthy of disgrace and great disapproval, condemned, all by false information, only to be found that the herb of God’s approval, can benefit mankind in ways we can only dream of, and the following is why weed is the miracle plant.

The Endocannabinoid System

The search to answer these valid questions has led scientists to the discovery of a previously unknown system in our bodies, what has become the most important system of the health and healing of every human and almost every animal: The Endocannabinoid System. To understand the Endocannabinoid System is to understand the miraculous nature of weed. Truth be told, our bodies and minds were designed to use pot. Using synthetic pharmaceutical drugs has been the wrong approach in so many cases, causing more harm than good.

Homeostasis

The endogenous cannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important system in our body involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, tissues, glands, nervous system and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: Homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable healthy internal environment despite changes in the outside environment, a system in which differences are regulated so that conditions remain at an optimum healthy level within our bodies and minds.

Autophagy

Cannabinoids promote homeostasis at every level of biological life. Here is just one example: Autophagy, a normal process in the body that deals with the destruction of unhealthy cells is controlled by the cannabinoid system. While this process keeps normal cells alive, it has a deadly effect on unhealthy cells such as malignant tumor cells, Cancer cells, causing them to consume themselves in a programmed cellular suicide. The death of cancer cells, of course, promotes homeostasis and survival at the level of the entire organism. I am confidant marijuana will soon be our long awaited cure for Cancer.

Endocannabinoids and Cannabinoids

Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are also found at the cross roads of the body’s various systems, allowing communication and coordination between different cell types.

A bridge between body and mind

The endocannabinoid system, with its complicated actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we begin to see how states of mind and consciousness can also promote health or disease. A healthy mind and soul promotes a healthy body.

In addition to regulating our internal and cellular homeostasis, cannabinoids influence a person’s relationship with the external environment. Socially, the administration of cannabinoids clearly alters human behavior, often promoting sharing, humor, and creativity. By mediating neurogenesis (the creation of new brain cells), neuronal plasticity (the reorganization of neural pathways in the brain), and learning, cannabinoids may directly influence a person’s open-mindedness and ability to move beyond limiting patterns of thought and behavior from past situations. Changing these old patterns is an important part of health in our quickly changing environment.

What Are Cannabinoid Receptors?

All mammals, as well as other species, share the endocannabinoid system as an essential part of life. Scientists estimate that the endocannabinoid system started evolving in primitive animals over 600 million years ago. While it may seem we know a lot about cannabinoids, the estimated twenty thousand plus scientific articles written to date on cannabinoids have just begun to shed light on the subject.

Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body and are more numerous than any other receptor system. When cannabinoid receptors are stimulated, a variety of processes begin. Researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB1, mostly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs; and CB2, mostly found in the immune system. Many tissues contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors, each linked to a different action. Researchers speculate there may be a third cannabinoid receptor waiting to be discovered. These cannabinoid receptors in our bodies can also be stimulated by the cannabinoids in marijuana. They are basically the same substance as what is produced naturally in the body, and this is why I say we were designed to smoke, ingest weed. We were made for pot. We need weed.

Endocannabinoids and Phytocannabinoids

Endocannabinoids are the substances our bodies naturally make to stimulate these receptors. Phytocannabinoids are the substances in marijuana plants that also stimulate these same cannabinoid receptors. THC is the most famous of these substances, but other cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) are gaining the interest of researchers due to a variety of healing properties. Most phytocannabinoids have been isolated from the sativa strain of weed. And there are many, many more cannabinoids in weed to be researched and find how they might be benificial to our bodies also. Phytocannabinoids can replace depleted endocannabinoids in our bodies, Cannabinoids in marijuana act on the body by signaling the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors, assisting in healing us and keeping us healthy.

Understanding Free Radicals and Antioxidants

Interestingly, the cannabis plant also uses THC and other cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease. Cannabinoids have antioxidant properties that protect the leaves and flowering structures from the harmful effects of the sun – cannabinoids neutralize the harmful free radicals generated by UV rays, protecting the cells. In humans, free radicals cause aging, cancer, disease, and impaired healing. Antioxidants found in plants have long been promoted as natural supplements to prevent free radical harm. In recent years, there has been a great deal of attention toward the field of free radical chemistry. A balance between free radicals and antioxidants is necessary for proper bodily functioning. If free radicals overwhelm the body’s ability to regulate them, they will trigger a number of human diseases. The search for effective, nontoxic natural compounds with antioxidative activity has been intensified in recent years, and researchers are finding it, in weed. Cannabinoids in weed have natural antioxidant properties that prevent free radical harm. Less free radical harm equals less disease. Free radicals and antioxidants have become commonly used terms in modern discussions of disease mechanisms, and marijuana are now part of these discussions. In controlling free radicals, we can not only control cancer and other diseases, but aging as well.

Cannabis, The Endocannabinoid System, And Good Health

As we continue to sort through the emerging science of cannabis and cannabinoids, one thing remains clear: a functional cannabinoid system is essential for health. From conception in our mother’s uterus, to nursing and growth, to responding to injuries, endocannabinoids help us survive in a quickly changing and increasingly hostile environment. Can an individual enhance his/her cannabinoid system by taking supplemental cannabis? Beyond treating symptoms, beyond even curing disease, can cannabis help us prevent disease and promote health by stimulating an ancient system that is hard-wired into all of our bodies? The answer is YES. Research has shown that small doses of cannabinoids from cannabis can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors. This is why many first-time cannabis users don’t feel an effect, but by their second or third time using the herb they have built more cannabinoid receptors and are ready to respond. On a personal note, when I started smoking herb almost 40 years ago, I never got a buzz, everyone else seemed to catch a buzz, but not me, it was only after regular use did I start getting a buzz on, now I know why. More receptors increase a person’s sensitivity to cannabinoids; smaller doses have larger effects, and the individual has an enhanced baseline of endocannabinoid activity. I believe that small, regular doses of cannabis might act as a tonic to our most central physiologic healing system.

Many physicians might laugh at the thought of prescribing a ‘weed’ as medicine, a plant substance, and they are outright mortified by the idea of smoking a medicine. Our medical system is more comfortable with single, isolated synthetic substances that can be swallowed or injected. Unlike synthetic drugs, marijuana may contain over one hundred different cannabinoids, including THC, which all work together to produce better medical effects and less side effects than THC alone. While cannabis is safe and works well when smoked, many people prefer to avoid respiratory irritation and instead use a vaporizer, tincture, or topical salve. Scientific and patient testimonials both indicate that herbal cannabis has superior medical qualities to synthetic cannabinoids.

Thomas Edison, the prophet

In 1902 Thomas Edison said, “There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending toward the simple truth that you can’t improve on nature.” Cannabinoid research has proven this statement is still valid.

So, is it possible that the marijuana plant we have been told by authorities for so many decades to be dangerous, addictive, and of no medicinal value, if not bordering on being evil, a drug still illegal federally in the USA as a schedule one drug, on par with cocaine and heroin, could become the most useful medicine in the history of mankind which can treat the widest variety of human diseases and ailments, be used to actually prevent and cure diseases, and ultimately a substance that will shield us, protect us from our own polluted, increasingly toxic, carcinogenic, poisonous environment? YES. This was well known in ancient India, China, and Tibet, and now, we ourselves are now becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of marijuana by modern western science. Of course, we need more human-based research studying the effectiveness of cannabis, despite the American DEA’s best efforts to discourage marijuana-related research.

Most doctors know shit about medicine

Does your doctor understand the benefits of marijuana? Can he or she advise you in proper medicinal administration? Likely not. Despite the two largest U.S. physician associations (American Medical Association and American College of Physicians) calling for more research, the U.S. Congress prohibiting federal interference in states’ medical cannabis programs, a 5,000 year history of safe therapeutic use, and a huge amount of published research, most doctors know little or nothing about marijuana.

This is all changing now, because the public is demanding it. People want safe, natural and inexpensive treatments that stimulate our bodies’ ability to self-heal and help our population improve its quality of life. Cannabis is one such solution. We are living at a time of profound change in how we look at marijuana, scientific evidence proves the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids. Weed is a miracle plant that can only benefit mankind. Bud is all good. We have come along way since ‘Reefer Madness’.
