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.


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.


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’.

Is CBG The Ultimate Cannabinoid?

The Next Generation of Medicinal Cannabis: High-CBG Strains

Cannabigerol (CBG) happens to be responsible for most of marijuana’s medical effects, CBG works behind the scenes, which scientists have only recently started to investigate.

Cannabigerol, a small non-psychoactive component of cannabis, shows significant promise as a treatment for glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, colon cancer, Huntington’s Disease, skin diseases, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, antidepressant, etc, etc,  but its mostly unavailable in the medical marijuana market.

All the major cannabinoids in marijuana come from cannabigerol (CBG); THC and CBD – the two most common chemicals in marijuana – and other minor cannabinoids all begin as CBG. CBG is non-psychoactive and is quickly converted to other cannabinoids by enzymes in the cannabis plant, which explains the low concentration of CBG in most strains. CBG gets turned into THC, CBD or CBC almost soon as it gets made. Since it’s the precursor for the major compounds, very little of is left over in mature flowers.

Besides its role in forming other cannabinoids, CBG has a number of important medical effects of its own.
CBG inhibits the uptake of a chemical in our brain called GABA – something CBD also does. “When GABA [uptake] is inhibited, you actually have muscle relaxation and you have anti-anxiety effects, so it appears to promote similar effects that CBD has. It also appears to have anti-depressant and some modest anti-fungal properties.”

Just recently in January 2015,
( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25252936 ) researchers discovered that CBG had neuroprotective effects in mice with Huntington’s Disease, a disease characterized by the degeneration of nerve cells in the brain. CBG improved motor skill deficiencies significantly and preserved neurons against toxicity.

In 2014, a study was conducted into the effect of CBG on cancer. The study revealed that cannabigerol can prevent the progression of cancer cells formed in the colon. CBG slowed down progression of colon cancer in mice. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25269802 ). Another new study published in a recent issue of the journal Phytomedicine, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis-based medicines may provide a cure for colon cancer.

Evidence also suggests it has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects as well. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2823359/ Cannabigerol is perhaps most widely recognized as an anti-inflammatory cannabinoid.

It’s been known since at least the ‘80s that CBG can help treat glaucoma by relieving interocular pressure. Researchers writing for Experimental Eye Research gave rats and cats CBN and CBG, finding that chronic administration of these cannabinoids lowers ocular tension considerably.

Medical marijuana patients have access to high-THC and high-CBD cannabis, but what about high-CBG strains? They are rare, but they exist. Narrow-leafleted drug strains from the Indian-subcontinent, were found to have slightly higher levels of CBG than others. Relatively high amounts of CBG can be extracted from budding plants about three-quarters of the way through flowering. Testing of industrial hemp has found much higher levels of cannabigerol (CBG) than most strains of cannabis.

CBG-only strains will soon be as available is CBD cannabis. Hybridization between different types of strains will allow patients to use medicinal cannabis tailored to their needs and preferences in a way people only can dream of today.

Cannabis helps alleviate the symptoms of PMS

PMS is a serious issue for women and men alike! Not only does it suck for females but I can’t see guys enjoying cranky girlfriends or wives! It’s an unfortunate part of life that some women have to deal with. But since it happens, we should know how to fend off those painful cramps and cranky attitudes!

Premenstrual syndrome or “PMS” is a female malady that occurs in the days or weeks leading up to menstruation. The symptoms may also occur during the beginning of menstruation. On average, they generally show up roughly 5 to 11 days before a woman starts her period. However, experiences differ between women and suffer from symptoms ranging from mild to severe.

The symptoms of PMS are often physical, behavioral and mental/emotional.

Studies have shown that up to 85% of women suffer from at least one of the symptoms this disorder may bring.

The wide variety of symptoms can include mood swings, sadness, difficulty concentrating, anger, fatigue, insomnia, sleeping too much, irritability, depression, stress, increased emotional sensitivity, and changes in libido. Physical symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle include headaches, bloating, lower back pain, abdominal cramps, constipation/diarrhea, swelling or tenderness in the breasts, and joint or muscle pain. Cannabis has proven to be effective at minimizing all of these symptoms.

The exact cause of PMS is unknown, but it seems to be related to the fluctuating levels of hormones that occur in preparation for menstruation. Women who suffer PMS likely have different hormonal changes than women who do not.

Cannabis has not been shown to aid in restoring normal hormone levels, therefore, it probably cannot treat the most often hypothesized cause of premenstrual syndrome, but nonetheless, as said, it can help with most of the symptoms.

Cannabis has been used as a cramp relieving substance since the 1800s, it was a common medicine used to alleviate menstrual cramps, general pain and anxiety among other ailments. When marijuana was in the worst of the drug war, women were given all sorts of pharmaceutical drugs to “help” them cope with the symptoms of PMS. Doctors were prescribing pharmaceutical painkillers, anti-depressants, and muscle relaxers for the symptoms of the condition and ALL of those pills have seriously negative side effects, including addiction and the possibility of overdosing, coupled with the potential of suicidal thoughts. Pain killers can become addictive and do long-term damage to the liver and kidneys. Muscle relaxants, which include valium (diazepam), have similar drawbacks. All anti-depressants (such as Prozac and Zoloft) take several days or even weeks to start working, so relief is not in arm’s reach. Even with the other pill options, pain killers and muscle relaxants take 40-60 minutes to kick in. Cannabis helps these symptoms immediately if smoked or vaped, much sooner than pain killers and muscle relaxants will begin to take effect. Additionally, cannabis is not  physically addictive or harmful to the human body. Some girls get such severe pains that they’re stuck on the couch, curled up in the fetal position. Smoking marijuana or using a vaporizer is an immediate, healthy way to counteract the symptoms brought on by PMS that really has no negative side effects. It’s much easier to get a hold of than most prescription medicines, not to mention much less dangerous.

Cannabis is a well known analgesic, to generally relieve pain, therefore, the mild pain relieving effects may be sufficient to treat premenstrual syndrome pain, such as with the cramps, headaches, joint, back and muscle pain, It is also a well known treatment for headaches. There are some theories that marijuana affects parts of the brain that cause headaches. A study examined the effectiveness of cannabis in treating headaches and pain. In that study, rats given cannabis exhibited reduced activity of nerve cells that transmit pain. Many patients find that marijuana is additionally useful in reducing stress that may be contributing to the headache, providing more effective relief than any one pharmaceutical medication. Keep in mind that cannabis has been shown to help treatment resistant migraines and cluster headaches which are among the most painful headaches a person can experience. However, it is also known to have limited pain relief benefits in some severe cases of pain. For cases of such severe pain, research is indicating that marijuana works well in conjunction with other pain relievers to both increase pain relief and decrease dosages of potentially dangerous pain medications such as opiates.

For problems with constipation or diarrhea associated with PMS, this can be alleviated by cannabis also. Research suggests that cannabis is effective in treating these symptoms in part because it interacts with the endogenous cannabinoid receptors in the digestive tract, which can result in calming spasms, assuaging pain, and improving motility. Cannabis has a long documented history of use in treating Gastro-intestinaI distress.

Cannabinoids, the active ingredients in cannabis, can also temper the mood swings, depression, anxiety and the emotional sensitivities associated with PMS, weed with high levels of the cannabinoids CBD and CBG as well as moderate levels of THC is helpful in this area. But to what extent can marijuana actually help people who are struggling with  anxiety? It does exert an effect on stress levels through the endocannabinoid system, which regulates pain and appetite. THC interacts with anandamide, which is a neurotransmitter, creating a happy, relaxed feeling, as well as sleepliness. Sleepiness is a known side effect of marijuana, especially of the Kush strains, so it is likely to help people who respond positively to it fall asleep, fall back to sleep and stay asleep. Since not getting enough sleep can increase and even cause emotional and psychological symptoms, getting enough sleep can control other symptoms of premenstrual  syndrome through allowing sufferers to get a good night’s sleep.

It is said chocolate is good for PMS and what will make you eat more chocolate than pot? PMS and chocolate cravings go together like peanut butter and jelly or fireworks and the 4th of July. There is a good reason why women with PMS go out in a blizzard to get chocolate or eat a dinner of melted chocolate on a chocolate brownie sitting on chocolate ice cream. The chocolate was making them feel better. This improvement in mood is due to chocolate’s substantial sugar content and, to a small extent, the caffeine-like ingredient is also contains. Because chocolate has a creamy texture, we are unaware of how much sugar it contains and it contains alot. When sugar is eaten without protein, the body responds by making new serotonin in the brain and serotonin among other things contributes to feelings of well being and happiness. So, we know weed gives us the munchies! After she smokes a bowl, give her lots of chocolate!

Marijuana can help women with PMS live a near-normal life without the side effects of prescription drugs normally used to treat this condition. Cannabis is a safe, effective, time-honored remedy that can ease the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. It has also been found to be  beneficial in easing symptoms of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) also, a more severe form of PMS that affects about 5% of women and causes symptoms like severe menstrual pain, clinical depression and chronic anxiety among other very serious symptoms..

So, ladies, next time you need some relief, smoke a reefer. And for all the guys out there that cower from their PMSing girlfriends, just bring her a bushel of bud, bring her a silly movie, some chocolate, and roll her the best blunt she’s ever smoked!
