How Changing Ourselves Changes the World Around Us (Part 2)

In part 1 (Cannabis is a Gateway Drug: But it’s Not What You’ve Been Told) we looked at the fact that synapses that fire together wire together and in doing so create the very experience we focus on especially those experiences we repeat.

Dupuytren’s Contracture and Cannabis

Dupuytren’s Contracture and Cannabis

Slowly and over the period of many years I saw my dads right hand turn into a permanent and immobile open fist. At first the tissue around his tendons started to harden. When I touched it they felt strange, like a “living rock”. Than his corresponding little and ring fingers started to pull inwards and became gradually stuck in a permanent and contracted position. He never talked about pain as was his way. Eventually it

Cannabis Is A Gateway Drug! (But it’s Not What You’ve Been Told)

Cannabis Is A Gateway Drug! (But it’s Not What You’ve Been Told)

OK, let’s start this way. Synapses that fire together wire together. What? Stay with me. A synapse (more specifically a synaptic cleft) is empty space (a gateway) between nerve cells.

When we touch a toe to the cool surface of a pond the sensation is transmitted from one nerve cell to another in form of electrical

Microbes, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Cannabis

Cannabis and Acupuncture, the Yin and Yang of Healing Pain (an ancient connection revealed)

Cannabis and Acupuncture, the Yin and Yang of Healing Pain (an ancient connection revealed)

The earliest records of using acupuncture for pain relief are about 8 thousand years old. Roughly the same is true for the analgesic use of medicinal cannabis (give or take a few years). However, what is truly a new and exciting insight in medicine is that these two ancient approaches to mitigating pain go about it in the same way. In the context of pain relief acupuncture and cannabis can be thought of as two

May The Force Be With You: The Dark Side of Pharmaceuticals and the Green Light of Cannabis

May The Force Be With You: The Dark Side of Pharmaceuticals and the Green Light of Cannabis

  We’ve all seen the gleaming TV commercials, bike riders in daisy fields…. and yet we’ve heard the long, legally obligated litany of warnings, up to and including nothing less than “suicidal feelings.” What the daisy-picking litany of faster than speed of light talking voice at the end of the commercial doesn’t mention is murder.
