The endocannabinoid system( ECS), one of the very important systems in our body.
It was found in the late eighties buy researchers studying the effect of cannabis on the body, which led to the discovery of the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Yet we seem to know so little about it in general today 30 years later.
Does your doctor even know? If not, why?
“Back in 2013, David B. Allen MD commissioned a survey in which all the medical schools in the US were asked whether they included the ECS within their syllabus. Only 13% were found to teach it in any way, with Dr. Allen declaring that “research and education of medical students involving the ECS is being intentionally restricted by politics.”
We all see the amazing stories of recovery with contact information to oil dealers, it’s all over the web. Unfortunately, they are all scammers.
They can be very convincing to speak to, but don’t be fooled. Cannabis is unfortunately illegal still in most places of the world, which makes it a great place for scammers to flourish. With all the science backing up cannabis as a potential healer, more and more people are seeking to try it as a part of their treatments. Unfortunately, due to the law, that is not so easy for most people today. Many have no contact with the cannabis community and are searching desperately for a way to get a hold of cannabis. And we have spoken to people who have put their trust in these testimonials, sent them the money and when the oil does not arrive and they complain, the scammers threaten to give all their information to the police.
We have to spread awareness about this, the last thing you need when you are chronically ill and in a desperate situation, is to get scammed by somebody claiming to be a part of the cannabis community. We need to get cannabis legal for people to grow, so they can grow their own or help somebody that they care for, without risking being persecuted by the law.
