What is the Endocannabinoid System? Human Cannabinoid System

What is the Endocannabinoid System? Human Cannabinoid System What is the Endocannabinoid System? The endocannabinoid system is a network of internally occurring components that play an important role in our inner biological system. It is responsible for regulating and balancing (homeostatis) the response of the human body to certain triggers. Such as appetite, metabolism, immune change, communication between body cells and lots more. More importantly, the endocannabinoid system plays a huge role in the physical and psychological effects of cannabis in the human body. It is through this system that the active components of cannabis, which are referred to as cannabinoids, interact with our body’s biological system and elicit its beneficial effects. It was thus named after the active components. Endo (which means within the body) and Cannabinoid (the active ingredient...



LYME DISEASE: IS CBD-RICH CANNABIS THE SOLUTION? Medical cannabis is gaining more and more recognition for its beneficial outcomes on many conditions ranging from nausea to rare forms of epilepsy. One area researchers are becoming more interested in is cannabis as a treatment for Lyme disease. But does it really work? Since the original discovery of cannabis’ medicinal benefits eons ago, it has been used as a form of treatment for various conditions. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the plant’s main non-psychoactive component that can be utilised to alleviate pain and nausea, as well as provide relief for symptoms of anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, and even depression. Recently, it has been discovered that cannabis can also be used by those afflicted with Lyme disease. But how exactly does it work? In...


INTRODUCTION From brownies to medicated muscle creams, you can find cannabis concentrates in hundreds of products.   Concentrates are products made from the cannabis plant that have been processed to keep only the most desirable plant compounds (primarily the cannabinoids and terpenes), while removing excess plant material and other impurities. Ounce for ounce, cannabis concentrates have a greater proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes when compared to natural cannabis flowers.   Concentrates can also help increase the potency of your flower. The next time you pack a bowl with cannabis flower, try sprinkling kief on top, or add drops of concentrate oil to cannabis flower before rolling your joint. Cannabis concentrate products can also be consumed on their own. For example, concentrates can be vaporized using a portable vaporizer or dab rig (this activity is referred to as “dabbing”). Dabbing...


Private cannabis stores a game changer in Durham Region

  DURHAM — A provincial move to allow private cannabis stores has proven to be a game changer for Durham municipalities and local businesses with links to the cannabis industry. The new Progressive Conservative government in Queen’s Park announced last week that private cannabis stores would be allowed in Ontario after all and they are set to open by the beginning of April, a few months after marijuana is legalized in October. The previous government had planned to operate LCBO-type stores. Tiara Sillet is the owner of Natural Budz, a vape lounge, patient intake clinic and cannabis education centre located in Pickering. She welcomed the news and said she would love to apply for a licence for her business. “In all honesty I was excited but I’m holding back because...


Israel and Canada high on budding medical cannabis ties

Israel, the so-called Start-up Nation, could soon become known as the Silicon Valley of medical marijuana if leaders in the industry have their way. Israel’s medical cannabis sector is flourishing, thanks in part to growing business ties with Canada, which will officially legalize marijuana in October. Hundreds of millions of dollars in deals between Canadian and Israeli companies have already been inked, with investments covering innovative products treating a wide range of health issues—from cancer, to epilepsy, to sleep disorders. Saul Kaye is the man behind the CannaTech conference—one of the biggest international events in the industry—which takes place each year in Israel. “We have about 106 clinical trials running right now in cannabis and nowhere else in the world has been able to do that,” Kaye, who also...


Cannabigerol (CBG): A Minor Cannabinoid With A Major Impact

What Is Cannabigerol (CBG)? When considering the medicine that best suits you, it’s helpful to know the science behind a strain’s cannabinoid profile. The prevalence of lab testing is a great tool and has rapidly become the industry standard. Teams of chemists at locations like SC Labs in California and Sunrise Analytical in Oregon allow patients to see the breakdown of cannabinoids in their medicine, to practically an exact percentage. This trend has lead to an increased interest in the “minor” cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) was the focus of breeders for decades until the many medicinal benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) started being published. Discoveries like these spurred an interest in cannabigerol (CBG) and phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids found in plants) as a whole. Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) Is The Primary Cannabinoid The ability to produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is what makes the cannabis...



Cannabis distillate is making waves as a new kind of cannabis concentrate. Nicknamed "The Pure," it is an odorless, tasteless extract obtained using high heat extraction. It results in 100% pure cannabinoid. Cannabis has already travelled far from the bud. However, a new production technique is now hitting the commoditised world of weed. It is called distillation. It is also very likely to be the future of commercial marijuana. Distillate - in other words, cannabinoids that have been distilled from concentrate or plant matter - has arrived. Distillation is a technique for creating cannabis extracts that are pure on a molecular level. It is possible to isolate specific cannabinoids. It is also possible to create odourless and tasteless THC (or CBD) that is 99% pure concentrate. This is the next stage...

Its potency doesn’t necessarily come from its THC percentage, but from the high quantities of terpenes and phytocannabinoids found in this rich concentrate. A true gem in the marijuana world, this is one dabable that you won’t want to miss.  What is terp juice? Photo credit Have you ever wondered why different cannabis strains have different tastes and aromas? Some are skunky and pungent while others are sweet and floral.

Health Canada announces regulations surrounding cannabis legalization

Health Canada just released the regulations that support the Cannabis Act, which will come into effect on October 17. The nearly 400-page document outlines cannabis and industrial hemp regulations at the federal level, but provincial and municipal governments will be able to enforce their own bylaws. Criminal record Government of Canada officials stated that a previous criminal record does not specifically or automatically exclude an individual from participating in the legal cannabis market. Prior convictions will be evaluated according to circumstance, seriousness, recentness, and frequency. Eric Costen, Director General of Cannabis Legalization and Regulation Branch for the Department of Health, said that “all facts will be determined. A trafficking charge doesn’t automatically exclude people from participating under the Cannabis Act.” However, the security requirements prevent anyone with a previous controlled substance offence...


Cannabis in Chile

Chile Marijuana Information Could traditionally conservative Chile be the next South American country to legalize cannabis? Uruguay made history in 2013 by becoming the first country to legalize recreational marijuana across the country, and there are signs that Chile could follow suit. Historically, Chile has been a marijuana-friendly country, and recent changes in law have advocates fighting for its full legalization. Chile has been planting marijuana for medical purposes and conducting medical trials since 2014, but it’s been difficult for patients who have been prescribed marijuana to legally obtain the drug. In December 2015, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet signed a measure to legalize marijuana for medical use. The measure will help remove a lot of the barriers that patients have faced in obtaining medical marijuana. The measure...
