Endo-Cannabinoid System .
Every cell in the human body comes equipped with endogenous cannabinoid or endo-cannabinoid receptors built-in, and in a dizzying array of different unique, specific-chemically encoded varieties. Our bodies are naturally hard-wired to respond to and, as the prefix endogenous indicates, produce those cannabinoid chemicals which are found in Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. Cannabinoids are a natural component of mothers’ breastmilk, and this is no accident.
The endo-cannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining the homeostasis of every cell in the body. It is an electro- chemical highway that links the nervous system, the immune system, and the digestive system, and it is present in almost every animal species on the planet.
Cannabinoids are neuro-protectants that insulate the brain from sudden physical shock and they play a vital function on control of our bodies’ most basic reactions to physical stimuli. They regulate energy intake and nutrient transport and storage within cells, facilitating inter-cellular communication and the various processes of the nervous system.
Exo-cannabinoids, those present in the cannabis flowers, behave exactly as endo-cannabinoids; our bodies cannot tell the difference.
Within the flower of the cannabis plant there are 64 unique cannabinoids. Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol and Cannabidiol, THC and CBD, are the two best known and most thoroughly researched.
Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the cannabinoid responsible for the elevated state referred to in popular culture as “getting high.” Cannabidiol, abbreviated CBD, is THC’s non psy-co-active cousin. Most people have heard of THC, but only recently has CBD begun to be talked about. What they’ve been saying is good. Very good.
Extensive research has been conducted on the effects of CBD on tumor genesis, and it has been shown to not only slow growth but to cause apoptosis, natural cell death, in cancerous cells of every variety.
Scientists in Spain, Canada, and the UK have demonstrated recently in lab studies that CBD has the effect of destroying cancer cells. In fact, it has been observed to reduce and reverse the effects of numerous diseases including diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease, Crohn’s disease , Alzheimer’s , and even to destroy the HIV/AIDS virus. In all, 200 conditions have been shown to be cured by cannabinoids.
How is this possible?
Cancer is a set of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth caused by a genetic mutation. Despite their genes’ mutation, cancerous cells still come equipped with cannabinoid receptors.
When a CB2 cannabinoid plugs into a receptor located on a cancerous cell an apoptotic reaction occurs; the genetic mutation which has caused the cell to divide unchecked is corrected and the cell dies naturally. Other cannabinoids work in the same way to correct every syndrome, disease, or chronic condition they have been tested against. They repair damaged DNA, arrest the growth of blood vessels which supply tumors with blood, and dampen an overactive immune system.
The most effective cannabis-derived medicine is commonly referred to as Simpson Oil. It is made simply by dissolving cannabis buds in alcohol, reducing them to a molasses-like substance. This oil contains all 64 known cannabinoids, which work synergistically to restore living systems to their best functioning.
Even more importantly, cannabis oil cannot be patented. The healthcare industry, medical insurers, and the pharmaceutical industry have stood in the way of legalization for decades; some of them knowing of Cannabis’s curative properties, because they know this information spells the end of their monopoly on our health.
United States Patent 6630507:
Filed by Hampson; Aidan J. (Irvine, CA), Axelrod; Julius (Rockville, MD), Grimaldi; Maurizio (Bethesda, MD)
Filed on: Oct. 7th, 2003
Abstract: “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. “
Above is the abstract of the United States patent on Cannabinoids as a cure for numerous diseases, filed in 2003 through the Department of Health and Human Services. It can be viewed online through the US Patent office website.
“Using low-speed mixing and ultrasonication techniques, the researchers formed coarse emulsions and nanoemulsions, respectively, of both clove bud (Syzygium aromaticum) and oregano (Origanum vulgare). They then added methylcellulose, a type of edible fiber, in order to create film sheets out of the essential oils.
When they applied the edible sheets to preservative-free bread, the team observed a marked decrease in both yeast and mold counts after 15 days, with the smaller-sized particles providing more enhanced preservation. Compared to calcium propionate and plastic, the essential oil sheets maintained the bread’s freshness for longer and did not wear off like conventional preservatives. “
“For her final project for a master’s degree in food studies at New York University, Leanne Brown created a beautiful and practical cookbook, titled Good and Cheap, which includes over 130 pages of recipes that fit into a $4 a day food budget, along with enticing photos of the prepared dishes.”
These pools rely entirely on the plants and animals to condition the water. This is so effective that this pool has been tested and shown to be of drinking water quality. Also, through the continual natural “cleaning process” the pool water never needs changing, saving water. It’s chemical free so it is healthy for people and wildlife alike. It’s truly wild Swimming at home. Here are some free plans to build your own:
“It’s like breaking the sound barrier; this step change proves solar has the potential to compete with the peak performance capabilities of fossil fuel sources,” Dr Alex Wonhas, CSIRO’s Energy Director,”
“Owner and operator Justin Vrany personally ensures that any waste the restaurant creates receives the proper disposal: biodegradable materials get composted, cardboard goes to recycling, and so forth.
After two years, Sandwich Me In had produced eight gallons of waste; that’s what an average restaurant throws out in a single hour. Faced with this existential dilemma, Vrany gave the waste to an artist for a sculpture project, officially making the sandwich shop a zero-waste establishment.
In addition to its garbage policies, Sandwich Me In also operates on renewable energy and uses local, sustainable meat. The best part? All of the sandwiches cost less than $10, which goes to show that these policies don’t have to break the bank.”
It’s a damn impressive feat and puts us closer to the dream of creating renewable energy for our Earth-sucking moving boxes known as planes, cars and other transportation vehicles. European scientists have done this by using simulated, concentrated sunlight at a temperature of nearly 1300 degrees Fahrenheit to convert and separate water and carbon dioxide into a synthetic gas made of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. That synthetic gas can be turned into kerosene.
“The public trust doctrine has its roots in antiquity, deriving from the Roman “Code of Justinian.” Elizabeth Brown of Our Children’s Trust, the group coordinating the legal effort, explains that the doctrine represents a duty for all sovereigns to safeguard public resources that future generations will depend on for survival. It is an “attribute of sovereignty,” “implicit in our constitution,” she says.”
“The “logical” way for the internet to be organised, in Irvine’s view, doesn’t require massive servers in data centres owned by big companies; they’re an unnecessary middleman. In fact, you don’t really need servers. “If you add up all the computers on our desks, it’s much more powerful, with larger storage, and larger CPU than any large corporation,” he said. The SAFE network would be distributed across the hard drives and CPUs of devices linked up to the system—”
