CBD and chronic pain

CBD and Chronic Pain

Many of our customers (including me) use CBD for relief from chronic pain. Unfortunately, there is little in the way of clinic data on this use, and the FDA prevents us from promoting CBD for pain. None the less, the anecdotal evidence is quite compelling. We need a high-quality, controlled clinic trial to assess the effects of CBD. In the meantime, let’s compare CBD to approved treatments for chronic pain.… Read More »CBD and Chronic Pain
CBD and epilepsy

CBD and Epilepsy – What to Know

If we go back a decade, cannabis, hemp and CBD were considered “controlled substances” with no known medicinal value. How far we have come.

Endocannabinoids – An Interesting Graphic

  • by
I found this very useful endocannabinoids graphic on LinkedIn: This picture graphicly depicts the synthesis of the endocannabinoids 2-AG and AEA in the cellular lipid bilayer. They are made from ethanolamine, arachidonic acid and glycerol. Most every cell has the machinery to produce endocannabinoids, since the precursor molecules are present in all lipid bilayers. This production of neurotransmitters in the cell membrane using membrane constituents is rather unique to the… Read More »Endocannabinoids – An Interesting Graphic
