Get to know YOUR cannabinoid system!
Research in the past decade or so has intensified into the human cannabinoid system, its functions and responsibilities. A lot of this research and the studies are suggesting that Our own cannabinoid systems are critical to Anti-Cancer, Anti-Aging, Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Anxiety health benefits, even more so than our Immune System. For over 600 million years, every living organism with the exception of the Hydra, Mollusks and Insect classes has / have had a cannabinoid system, even humans. Only until recent studies have we started to truly understand the exact nature of our cannabinoid systems that, with a boost from pure cannabinoid extracts of marijuana plants, can give humans protection from many illnesses and diseases, as well as have preventative optimum health benefits . Yes, there have been for quite some time, synthetic versions such as Marinol, but these just do not exemplify the true curing and healing nature of real THC extract… as a supplement! Here are some facts about the Cannabinoid System and its Unique Functions:
Our bodies make endogenous (meaning “from within an organism” – natural) cannabinoids. One of the primary ones is called “Anandamide”, Sanskrit for “Blissful Amide”. Our bodies produce these, naturally, in response to a variety of conditions. Anandamides bind to vanilloid-Receptors to reduce pain (very well-known) and that adding THC-9 via pill or less preferably smoked, increases our anandamide production thus relieving pain (hence “medical” marijuana…right now). Taking aspirin actually prevents the breakdown of anandamides in our systems and “jumpstart” the natural production.
Cannabinoids have a very interesting way of protecting our cells and neurons from damage while eradicating bad ones, like Glieoma in brain tumors. ( I did not make that up!…all the time they were telling you it was bad for you “killing cells, ya know”)
Cannabinoids also boost our immune system into anti-inflammatory “mode” protecting you from auto-immune diseases and the free radicals your body creates – therefore receiving its anti-aging benefits, as inflammation is one of the 5 reasons that causes aging. Humans who intake THC-9 regularly, tend to look younger and live longer. Yup!
Cannabinoids can be used to treat and prevent certain cancers, such as Brain cancer (Glieoma), Skin cancer, Prostate cancer, Breast cancer, Lymphoma, Leukemia and Pheochromocytoma (cancer of adrenal glands). More and more studies are being done (quietly), which never really make headlines about treating additional cancers.
Cannabinoids not only help deal with cancers, but are also effective in treating, and possibly preventing, diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Glaucoma and Osteoporosis. It has shown to be an effective natural based treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s / IBD, Arthritis, Liver disease, Seizures and even Bi-Polar Disorder! More important, it was in use for many of centuries before for some of these very same purposes, until it became “illegal to cure ourselves“.
The main receptors that THC – 9 (and other cannabinoids) influence are known as CB-1’s and CB-2’s, that are located in the more “evolved” higher part of the brain. Humans have naturally poor pathways to these CB-1’s and CB-2’s but by ingesting Cannabinoids can “tap” into these higher realms of thought versus people who do not. People with extremely small or no CB receptor activity, cannot adapt to change as well as humans with more developed pathways. Studies indicate humans function in a more homeostatic balance with additional cannabinoids than those people who don’t.
Babies / offsprings get a cannabinoids “boost” in the mother’s milk to activate their eating patterns and instincts. There’s another reason to breast your child instead of formula based (btw-they are junk) – babies need real mother’s milk for many other reasons and there are health benefits to the mother too.
It is becoming undeniable through the studies that are allowed to be done, the vast positive health benefits THC-9 and other cannibinoids can have on the human body…all this time it has been stigmatized and vilified (yet loved by others) and no other force has been so merciless as to attempt to eradicate marijuana than the government. Who’s interests are they really protecting?
If a government TRULY cared about its citizens…Why is there poverty, disease, social classes?
