ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

Endocannabinoid System

Scientists link the immense breadth of relief of symptoms from cannabis to the discovery of a previously unknown physiologic system, a central component of the health and healing of every living creature: the Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid System, though barely discussed until very recently, is one of the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. The Endocannabinoid system works to maintain a stable environment in our cells as the external environment changes. It accomplishes this through homeostasis, a natural process during which cells reduce harmful environments within them. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are located throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. These receptors respond to the chemicals in cannabis and react to them in a way that leads to healing and relief from symptoms. It plays a role in maintaining our health by regulating our physiology and mood. Please follow the links to read and learn more about the Endocannabinoid system.

Cannabis…Safety and Efficacy

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there has never been a death recorded from the use of cannabis. Cannabis and its psychoactive cannabinoid, THC, are considered very safe for human consumption. It is physically impossible for a human to die from a cannabis overdose.
