Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency


Recommended Posts

Not sure if many have heard of this, but it sure does sound like a reason why so many of us find relief through the use of medical cannabis. This article is posted by SensiSeeds, a cannabis seed bank, so keep that in mind while reading. There are plenty of other articles and journals out there on this proposed disorder (I believe GW Pharma was doing some research on it back in 03 or 04) but they all cost money and I am cheap :)

I would be interested to hear from others who experience similar symptoms, and what their preferred method of dosage and level of relief from symptoms they get. 

 

For me I have found vaporizing concentrates provides the 2nd best relief, but with the fastest onset. Medicated edibles/capsules/etc provide the most symptom relief, but onset takes a while, and dosage is hard especially with food products. I prefer capsules to food. Smoking is the least effective method for me, and I always feel more "stoned", which I don't enjoy.

Wow. I have often wondered if there is some deficiency that cannabis cures because I feel more"normal" when I have some cannabis in my system. I have also often thought that if I told anyone this that they would think "it's the drug talking". I am now thinking that science may eventually prove what I suspect. I hope that the religious right doesn't outlaw science first though.

The discussion didn't go very far but we started to talk about this one before

conjugated linoleic acid has been all but removed form our diet as a result of the feedlot. The CLA is produced in the fat and muscle of cattle when they are grass fed.

eating from organically fed cow will remedy the issue, and will reduce a waistline. Australia has some comprehensive studies on their beef compared to ours with CLS as their focus.

 

edit;I understand there are only two life forms on the planet with cannabinoid receptors, us and a deep see creature(wtf?)  . :geek:

Cannabinoids and Feeding:
The Role
of the Endogenous Cannabinoid System
as a Trigger for Newborn Suckling
Ester Fride
SUMMARY. Cannabinoids are known to enhance appetite by activating
cannabinoid (CB1) receptors. This phenomenon is exploited to combat
cachexia and loss of appetite in cancer and AIDS patients. The
endocannabinoid 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) is present in milk. Evidence
is presented supporting a critical role for CB1 receptors in survival of
mouse pups. Thus neonates do not gain weight and die within the first week
of life when their receptors are blocked. This is due apparently, to an inability
to ingest maternal milk. This suggests that the endocannabinoid-CB1 receptor
system is unique in its absolute control over the initiation of the
neonatal milk suckling response. It is further proposed that cannabis-based
medicines should be developed to benefit infant failure to thrive. [Article
