How does cannabis get us high? When scientists started looking into it, their investigations led them to discover a previously unknown but fundamental biological system in our bodies.

The endocannabinoid system, and how it was discovered, is just one of the incredible things featured in Science & Cannabis, a new documentary from The Nature of Things. For millennia, humans have used cannabis as a medicine for all kinds of issues — even Queen ..read more

Cali Sober (California Sober) is a thing, where many are replacing recreational drugs and excessive alcohol consumption with weed and limited amounts of alcohol. Think of it as a harm reduction method – replacing damaging and/or addictive recreational modes with healthy ones. Even if you are having one or two drinks of alcohol, consumption is reduced when adding infused beverages with cannabis and other beneficial plants. Cannabis is an enhancer, meaning, if you are already drinking alcohol, the plant will increase the efficacy or effect of the alcohol. Add an edible, and you can easily black ..read more

Approximately 50% of older surveyed cannabis consumers also reported using the plant on a regular basis for medical reasons. Since cannabis possesses analgesic, neuroprotective, a ..read more

New insights on the structural biology of medical cannabis
Weed World Magazine

European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Grenoble, France, researchers have investigated the interaction between D9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and some proteins it might bind to. In a recent study, they showed in vitro that THC inhibits an important human enzyme called autotaxin. This enzyme is involved in many different cellular functions, specifically producing a molecule called lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), which stimulates cell proliferation. A dysregulation of LPA production can lead to development of cancer, inflammation, or pulmonary fibrosis. Autotaxin is therefore a ..read more

Since the delisting of parts of the marijuana plant as a narcotic last year, cannabis cafes and weed dispensaries have become common in Thailand. But confusing government amendments to the laws and continued debate about what should be permitted has created what has become known as “a weed Wild West” that could land tourists in trouble. “Since legalisation, no one really [knows] whether we have the correct information”, says Kitty Chopaka, an independent cannabis advocate based in Bangkok. The ministry of public health has published a new guide, and “as long as tourists follow a set ..read more

Abstract There is not a single pharmacological agent with demonstrated therapeutic efficacy for traumatic brain injury (TBI). With recent legalization efforts and the growing popularity of medical cannabis, patients with TBI will inevitably consider medical cannabis as a treatment option. Pre-clinical TBI research suggests that cannabinoids have neuroprotective and psychotherapeutic properties. In contrast, recreational cannabis use has consistently shown to have detrimental effects. Our review identified a paucity of high-quality studies examining the beneficial and adverse effects of medica ..read more
