6 things you may not know about Cannabis

by dope smoker on November 23, 2011

1. It’s in you

Many of the human body’s physiological processes are controlled by the endocannabinoid system. These endocannabinoids are found in every living animal on the planet above hydra and mollusks. The system affects appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory amongst other things and responds directly to cannabis. So humans are biologically linked to this plant whether we like it or not.

2. The US patented it in 2003

Despite the official line that marijuana has ‘no medical benefits’, the US has patented marijuana: patent #6630507

On their official website they state:

“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.”

3. It does cure skin cancer

Most people have heard about Rick Simpson and the work he has been doing with cancer patients and cannabis oil.

If you haven’t you can find out more here. And here. Oh yes, it also cures Crohn’s disease.

4. It may cure all cancers

Over 600 peer reviewed papers show that numerous cancer types (lung, breast, prostrate, glioma, thyroid, leukemia, lymphoma, basal cell carcinoma, melanoma) are killed by canabinoids in tissue culture and animal studies. More here (pdf). And here. And here. And here . Also hereWatch a film about this. Recent updated article

5. Smoking it doesn’t cause cancer

Smoking cannabis does NOT lead to lung cancer, the largest ever study of this shows.

6. Not taking cannabis may cause health problems

Scientists have started to speculate that the root cause of disease conditions such as migraines and irritable bowel syndrome may be a deficiency in endocannabinoids.

    Cannabinoids are not only found in the human body, they are found in many animals’ nervous systems.

    I heard that in a drugs test they test for cannabinoids, so if you drink titty milk does this mean you could fail a drugs test?

    Interesting question :)

    I believe that the endocannabinoids system in the body contains cannabinoids that are very similar to those in cannabis, but not exactly the same. The two fit together perfectly, however.
