Cannabis as medicine? Really??

Please note I am not a Doctor and don’t profess to be; always seek independent advice , do your own research and I suggest talking to other people in a similar position to you.

I was stunned when I first discovered that we have an endocanabinoid system in our bodies, why had I never heard of it? Hmmmm.

Turns out of the 500 natural compounds found in Cannabis 85 0f them are Cannabinoids plus its virtually impossible to overdose on Cannabis, unlike many pharmaceutical drugs!


Endocannabinoids and Cannabinoids, sounds like they go together right? Well they do. The chemicals found in Cannabis are cannabinoids, they are made naturally in the body as well as in the Cannabis plant. They activate cannabinoid receptors in the body, mostly in the Immune system and central nervous system. The 2 types of Cannabinoids we are talking about now are THC and CBD although there are dozens if not hundreds more. More information on the Endocannabinoid system here

For the record, THC content over 0.2% is currently illegal in the UK for , whereas CBD is LEGAL.

THC is also known as tetrahydrocannabinol, and it’s the chemical that causes the psychological effects of marijuana. THC will eleviate pain but won’t bind itself to the receptors in the brain the way opioids like morphine and other medicines from the poppy plant. THC works by altering the transmitter release in the spinal cord and results in pain relief. THC is psychoactive and is what makes people feel ‘stoned’

CBD or Cannabidoil has significant medical benefits. US government sponsored research has underlined CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions including; Athrititis, Diabetes, Alcoholism, Epilepsy, MS, Depression, Chronic Pain, Schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic resistant infections and other neurological disorders. The anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated. CBD also counteracts the psychoactivity of THC.

UK citizens are being criminalised for using the THC in Cannabis to treat their illnesses, some of the most vulnerable in or society face up to 14 year in prison for using a plant that is legal across America and Europe.

I’m convinced that future generations will look back at this time with wonder at why we weren’t using this powerful plant for all these years. Our body produces cannabinoids, and is specifically made to accept them, that should be proof of its capabilities as a medicine.

EDIT: Fri 27th July,  decriminalisation of Cannabis to be rolled out across UK!

The healing power of this wondrous plant has only just been scratched the surface of in my humble opinion…..
