Medical Cannabis

Medical Cannabis may be obtained at this pharmacy on prescription from your regular doctor.

How Cannabis works

Cannabis contains over 700 constituents, many of them known to be active. They are thought to exert different types of effects. Some simply relax nerve function while other “cohort drugs” contained in the plant have actual analgesic (pain-killing) activity, such as PEA (palmitoyly ethanolamide). These are known to activate actual cannabis-specific receptors that are located in vesicles on the surface of your nerves and on other cells.

The Endo Cannabinoid System

It is not widely known that your body can make its own cannabis bio-chemicals, including THC and CBD, as well as PEA. These vesicles can both produce and degrade cannabinoids once it has exerted its action*. This may explain the observed phenomenon of different people reacting to different doses of cannabis – sometimes up to 50 times greater doses being needed to produce the same effect.

Importance

Cannabis – both producing your own or taking it on prescription – may be of great help in reducing symptoms when the side effects of taking other analgesics, like opiates become intolerable. Medical Cannabis has had few if any reported side effects and its benefits have been well-proven over the millennia. More recently, intensive studies over the long term have brought about its release for medical use in Canada and some states of the USA.

How might you produce your own in greater quantity. Well, I cannot publish speculative theories here, but my studies in this area lead me to the conclusion that this may be done without too much trouble.

Benefit to You

If you are suffering intractable pain, such as from cancer, or a neurological complaint such as epilepsy or motor neurone disease, then this avenue may provide a source of relief.

Indeed, several individually presented case studies that were presented by medical practitioners at the recent post graduate face to face training at the Australian Council of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine international Cannabis Course described remissions of the discomfort and symptoms of tumours.*
