Why Does Cannabis Bring Relief?

When you smoke Cannabis, you get a different response than you do from Smokeless Cannabis Remedies (SCR). When you smoke it, you forget that you hurt, and you don’t care that you hurt. When ingesting (eating) smokeless remedies, you actually get pain relief and that relief lasts much longer than the high does for those who smoke it. When smoked, the high usually lasts about two hours and when eaten the effects can last for eight or more hours depending on what food is eaten and when, as well as the strength of the remedy.
People wonder why Cannabis brings the relief it does, and the fact of the matter is this: We have receptors all over our body for the constituents that are in the Cannabis plant. Our largest organ, the skin, is covered with receptors as are the rest of our organs. Two receptors, the CB1 and CB2 have been widely researched. Others have been discovered but are not yet researched much; there are exciting findings to come!
With laws as they are, research is conducted in Israel that should be happening in the USA. In the late 1980s, scientists there discovered the Endocannabinoid System. It is now known that everything except insects has one, (yes, you too!) and Cannabis feeds it. Our body makes cannabinoids like those that are in the Cannabis plant; that is why feeding our body Cannabis works so well to bring our body to the desired state of perfect balance, homeostasis. When we nurse our babies, these cannabinoids nourish them in every perfect way. Some encourage them to suckle, others give them an appetite – they are designed to make us thrive and thrive we do.
The neurotransmitter (messenger molecule) your body makes that mimics THC is named Anandamide. In the Sanskrit language ananda means “bliss” and THC is the “bliss molecule”. The Endocannabinoid system has the word “canna” in it as a nod to Cannabis. Professor Raphael Meshoulam is the scientist who discovered the Endocannabinoid System and is the one who isolated THC and CBD in the 1960s. Remember, you can’t spell healTHCare without THC!
