    Cannabinoids, Endocannabinoids and the closeness of their relationship.


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi all,
    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.

    Why?
    This bugs me a lot because of the essential role that endocannabinoids have on our nervous system.

    ref : http://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.

    @watcha,

    Thanks for posting the question and comments here. This is a very good subject and it requires a little more research on my part to participate properly. I will be checking back in here when I get a little time.

    Please REVIEW The Cannabis Encyclopedia on amazon. Thanks! http://www.amazon.com/Cannabis-Encyc...4331120&sr=1-3

    Thank you HydroLover.

    More please.

    It will be good to link all the medical endocannabinoid/cannabinoid information/data here.

    I may well then Edit my first post so that the links are categorized. So relating info, effects, the different cannabinoids etc. under categories to make searching for specific info easier when looking into this.

    Thanks for your input guys!

    Circulating levels of both endocannabinoids were also shown to be higher in obese compared with lean women. Yet, the direct production of endocannabinoids by human adipocytes has never been demonstrated. Our aim was to evaluate the ability of human adipocytes to produce endocannabinoids.
    is test for regulating weight ?
