How cannabis can treat illnesses

How can one herb – cannabis – treat so many different illnesses?

The answer lies in our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Most people have yet to hear about the ECS, but as the world comes to better understand this crucial system, we continue to unlock the secrets of cannabis as medicine while understanding more about human health in general.

Here are 8 facts about the endocannabinoid system which is the greatest medical discovery of the 21st Century based on scientific research.

1. The endocannabinoid system was discovered in the late 1980s when researchers were studying how THC interacted with the body. For reasons we’ll get into, the ECS would soon be considered more significant than all other neuroscience discoveries combined.

2. In the early 1990s another amazing discovery was made when researchers found two endogenous compounds that bind just like THC with the ECS. These THC-like cannabinoids, produced by our own bodies, are respectively called anandamide and AG-2.

3. It eventually became clear that the receptors which comprised the ECS were the most prevalent neurotransmitters throughout the brain and also found in the organs, bones, and skin.

4. Scientists have learned that the ECS plays a direct role in homeostasis, which means that it regulates every metabolic process in the body to keep things running as they should.

As Dr. Sunil Aggarwal pointed out, the ECS plays a role in processes such as:

  • Mood regulation
  • Appetite
  • Memory
  • Inflammation
  • Pain perception
  • Muscle tone and movement
  • Extinction of traumatic memory
  • Protection of nerves and brain tissue
  • Bone growth
  • Tumor regulation
  • Baby breast-feeding reward
  • Stress management
  • Eye pressure
  • Gastrointestinal motility
  • Seizure activity
  • And many others

5. When we don’t have enough endocannabinoids in our body, we call this clinical endocannabinoid deficiency – which medical researchers are connecting to a number of ailments including previously untreatable illnesses like irritable bowel syndrome or fibromyalgia or migraines. When the ECS isn’t healthy, any number of things can go wrong. The cannabinoids in cannabis can help us bolster the ECS, which is why the herb is so effective for so many different ailments.

6. People have been using cannabis for over 10,000 years (without a single fatal overdose ever being recorded), and some estimates have the ECS first developing at about 500 million years ago!

7. Recent research, shows that, like cannabis, acupuncture actually works to regulate, heal and optimize the endocannabinoid system as well as the other systems of the body.

Acupuncture influences the opioid and cannabinoid system by releasing endogenous receptor ligands.

Emperor Shen Nung, a pharmacologist, wrote a book The Great Herbal on TCM treatment methods and supposedly was the first to mention the benefits of cannabis to the human body.

8. Almost every animal, with the exception of insects, has an endocannabinoid system.

Cannabis does not affect disease as much as it affects the endocannabinoid system (ECS) that regulates the processes affecting said inflammatory related diseases. Proper activation of the ECS helps to homeostatically regulate the inflammation in the body that is associated with many diseases.

  • Neurological diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Pulmonary diseases
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune diseases

It is a fact that Chinese medicine has used cannabis (Ma Fen) as a healing herb for millennia according to The Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica (Shen Nung Ben Cao Jing). However, Traditional Chinese medicine physicians are dedicated Qigong, herbal and acupuncture practitioners so they have the skills to harness the transformative healing potential of cannabis, and neutralize its mild side-effects. Self-medicating with cannabis without the Chinese medicine knowledge and therapies, and Qigong training can make existing symptoms worse or create other imbalances.

Western research has confirmed that cannabis, Qigong and acupuncture work with the endocannabinoid system of the body, and a specific type of acupuncture can heal pain, anxiety, depression, addiction and deliver that great stoned feeling similar to cannabis. Therefore, medical cannabis can revolutionize the practice of TCM because the body’s endocannabinoid system is activated to heal diseases. Additionally, Qigong and acupuncture are definitely needed to balance Qi in the body when cannabis is taken.

Cannabis is regarded as the “food of Kundalini”, the female subtle creative energy that transforms sexual energy into spiritual experience.

As a Chinese medicine and Qigong practitioner, I find that Cannabis is both an herbal medicine and an entheogenic substance used for healing and awakening our inner divinity via meditation/ Qigong. – Ricardo B Serrano, R.Ac.

Ganja, Sanskrit word for cannabis, is associated with the Hindu God Shiva. Kundalini is also directly associated with the Hindu God Shiva. Every year in Nepal, one of the most holy events, the Shivaratri, is the celebration of Shiva through prayer, meditation and cannabis. The God Shiva consumed cannabis as a blessing according to interpretations of ancient Hindu text. Holy men and women of Shaivism are dedicated to achieving moksa (liberation) via yoga, meditation, and a devotional ritual of smoking cannabis. They find cannabis to be a catalyst for kundalini awakening, self-realization and mystical experiences.

“The subtler attainments come with birth or are attained through herbs (cannabis), mantra, austerities or concentration.”

Cannabis use allows for a quieting of the outside world, and the ability to focus more totally on the interior process of meditation.” – Patanjali Yoga Sutras 4.1

Theologian, Ariel Glucklich, PhD, Georgetown University states, “Marijuana is used in rituals for Shiva in order to attain higher levels of consciousness, visions, loss of individuality, identity with God. A whole range of psychic and spiritual phenomenon that are produced by cannabis are the goals of allowing and encouraging it’s utilization.”

Cannabis is not only used by yogis of every tradition for spiritual awakening but also used for healing chronic diseases due to its homeostatic balancing effect on inflammatory diseases by the endocannabinoid system of the body activated by cannabis.
