Marijuana is GOOD FOR YOU!

Starting in the late 1980s, a steady stream of studies identified two receptors that respond to a group of bioactive lipids naturally produced in the body called endocannabinoids, which bind to the same receptors as several of the marijuana plant’s phytocannabinoids. The CB1 receptor is concentrated primarily in the central and peripheral nervous systems, and the CB2 receptor is predominantly expressed in the immune system. Collectively, human endocannabinoids have been found to help regulate almost every physiological system: nervous, immune, endocrine, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular. “We know the endocannabinoid system is spread far and wide throughout the body and potentially can influence all kinds of other systems, disease states, and mental states, so it provides all kinds of possibilities for therapeutic targets,” says psychiatrist Michael Bostwick of the Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic.

Marijuana contains at least 108 different cannabinoids, some of which interact with these receptors, directly or otherwise, to varying effects. Only two, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), have been well characterized. THC is known to exert psychotropic and pain-relieving effects, while CBD has been shown to possess antipsychotropic effects—which mitigate the high from THC—along with neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties.
