This is something that has been bugging me for a very long time.
I know that cannabinoids and endocannabinoids are quite closely related, chemically. What I would like to know is how similar are the two compounds.
Cannabis was named so after it was found with cannabinoids found in it that were very similar to endocannabinoids.
This bugs me a lot because of the essential role that endocannabinoids have on our nervous system.
ref : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocannabinoid_system
This would mean things like allergies, dietary problems, cancers, deformations etc etc could all be due to an imbalance of endocannabinoids in our bodies. This ALSO suggests that endocannabinoids are an ESSENTIAL PART OF OUR LIVES.
As we are aware, we have receptors in our brains just for accepting cannabinoids, nothing else.
If this is also the case, the laws against cannabis can then be taken to the Courts of Human Rights as it would then be our RIGHT to have this plant as an essential part of our lives. We could then have the laws reversed heavily in our FAVOUR. Complete deregulation etc.
Of all the 397 cannabinoids found in the plant so far there must be one or two that are an almost exact match to that of our own. OR..... do we have many different types of endocannabinoids too???
Happy Growing, and please message me if you have any bio-chemistry knowledge/equipment that would be relevant.
Many thanks for your patience folks.
From time to time I will edit this post categorizing links and posts for all the useful info found about cannabinoids and effects.
