Cannabinoid Deficiency: Is It the Source of Your Illness?


Millions of Americans suffer from chronic illnesses many of those with painful side effects.  Drugs that are prescribed to patients can compound this with their side effects to the body.  Many seek a treatment option that is natural.   It is important to know your illness and all your treatment options.  Below you will see studies on cannabis as a treatment option for several illnesses as well as cannabinoid deficiency as a cause.  Please feel free to share the truth with not only your friends but your doctor as well.  Many are not trained in the science of cannabis and do not realize what studies have already been conducted.  ~ Cherry Girl

Clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD): can this concept explain therapeutic benefits of cannabis in migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions?
Migraine has numerous relationships to endocannabinoid function. Anandamide (AEA) potentiates 5-HT1A and inhibits 5-HT2A receptors supporting therapeutic efficacy in acute and preventive migraine treatment. Cannabinoids also demonstrate dopamine-blocking and anti-inflammatory effects. AEA is tonically active in the periaqueductal gray matter, a migraine generator. THC modulates glutamatergic neurotransmission via NMDA receptors. Fibromyalgia is now conceived as a central sensitization state with secondary hyperalgesia. Cannabinoids have similarly demonstrated the ability to block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestinal mechanisms that promote pain in headache, fibromyalgia, IBS and related disorders. The past and potential clinical utility of cannabis-based medicines in their treatment is discussed, as are further suggestions for experimental investigation of CECD via CSF examination and neuro-imaging.
CONCLUSION:
Migraine, fibromyalgia, IBS and related conditions display common clinical, biochemical and pathophysiological patterns that suggest an underlying clinical endocannabinoid deficiency that may be suitably treated with cannabinoid medicines.

  8. Now that cannabis is legal in Colorado for recreational use I can walk into a store the same as I can walk into a vitamin store and buy the various healing herbs. My first selection was Blue Dream, an Indica strain. My BP started at 172 over 106. It kept going down over a period of hours to 126 over 73.

    Within 3 days it cured my Ulcerative Colitis. First 2 doses made it flare up, but then by the 3rd day it was cured. Bloating, acid pain, blood in stool, all gone, everything back to normal where pharmaceuticals were doing more harm than good.

    An indica is known to cause “Couch Lock” You feel so good and relaxed you literally feel locked to the couch.

    I have ADHD and the Blue Dream calmed the hyperactivity in my brain where I over think things to the point of overload, then causing, mental fatigue and total shut down. One plant can cure so many ailments and do much better than pharmaceuticals.

    Now I’m trying a Sativa strain that can provide energy and creativity, called Jack Herer 3. There are so many variations I could spend most of the rest of my life sampling them all.

    • I believe that Blue Dream is part sativa but it depends on the genetics. I have had a few that were told was Blue dream but were a little different in reaction. I LOVE Jack as well as my all time favorite Super Lemon Haze. When grown/cured well is a smooth citrus taste and uplifting energizing high. CO was a big win for the community and I hope to see more of it throughout the country. I wish you all the best in your journey to finding the right strains that work well for you. It is encouraging to hear when people find relief.
