Endocannabinoid Deficiency


In 2004, however, Dr. Ethan Russo proposed the idea of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) in a study published in Neuro endocrinology letters. He suggested that deficient cannabinoid levels may be the underlying cause of numerous conditions alleviated by cannabis. Symptoms of CECD are pain, inflammation, digestive issues and anxiety and/or depression. A lifestyle of unhealthy diet, infrequent exercise, poor sleep, and lack of stress management contributes to endocannabinoid deficiency. Holistic treatment success is often attributed to activation and balancing of the body’s cannabinoid receptors through cannabis, acupuncture and Qigong.

– Excerpts from Endocannabinoid Deficiency and Guo Lin Qigong, page 112, The Cure & Cause of Cancer

I believe that Qigong also works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, as does acupuncture and cannabis, since the eight extraordinary meridians are activated in the practice of Qigong manifested as a blissful high and relaxation sensation that has anti-aging health benefits to various chronic diseases.

Research is confirming that acupuncture works with the endocannabinoid system, as does Cannabis. It is not a stretch to think that if you are treating pain/inflammation with Cannabis, adding acupuncture might ease pain.

Cannabis is a non-toxic herbal medicine without side-effects and is the best alternative to prescription drugs for alleviating pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, etc.

Cannabis has a long history in TCM. Cannabis is one of the 50 “fundamental” herbs of TCM, and is prescribed to treat diverse symptoms. Cannabis, called má, means “hemp; Cannabis; numbness” in Chinese, and was used by the Emperor Shen Nung, who was a pharmacologist.

Discovery sheds new light on marijuana’s anxiety relief effects by Bill Snyder

An international group led by Vanderbilt University researchers has found cannabinoid receptors, through which marijuana exerts its effects, in a key emotional hub in the brain involved in regulating anxiety and the flight-or-fight response.

This is the first time cannabinoid receptors have been identified in the central nucleus of the amygdala in a mouse model, they report in the current issue of the journal Neuron.

The discovery may help explain why marijuana users say they take the drug mainly to reduce anxiety, said Sachin Patel, M.D., Ph.D., the paper’s senior author and professor of Psychiatry and of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics.

Led by first author Teniel Ramikie, a graduate student in Patel’s lab, the researchers also showed for the first time how nerve cells in this part of the brain make and release their own natural “endocannabinoids.”

The study “could be highly important for understanding how cannabis exerts its behavioral effects,” Patel said. As the legalization of marijuana spreads across the country, more people — and especially young people whose brains are still developing — are being exposed to the drug.

Previous studies at Vanderbilt and elsewhere, Patel said, have suggested the following:

  •  The natural endocannabinoid system regulates anxiety and the response to stress by dampening excitatory signals that involve the neurotransmitter glutamate.
  •  Chronic stress or acute, severe emotional trauma can cause a reduction in both the production of endocannabinoids and the responsiveness of the receptors. Without their “buffering” effect, anxiety goes up.
  • While marijuana’s “exogenous” cannabinoids also can reduce anxiety, chronic use of the drug down-regulates the receptors, paradoxically increasing anxiety. This can trigger “a vicious cycle” of increasing marijuana use that in some cases leads to addiction.

In the current study, the researchers used high-affinity antibodies to “label” the cannabinoid receptors so they could be seen using various microscopy techniques, including electron microscopy, which allowed very detailed visualization at individual synapses, or gaps between nerve cells.

“We know where the receptors are, we know their function, we know how these neurons make their own cannabinoids,” Patel said. “Now can we see how that system is affected by … stress and chronic (marijuana) use? It might fundamentally change our understanding of cellular communication in the amygdala.”

The research team included scientists from Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, and Indiana University in Bloomington. The study was supported in part by National Institutes of Health grants MH090412, DA011322 and DA021696.

“I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. Surely, they must have quality reasoning as to why marijuana is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have ‘no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse.’

They didn’t have the science to support that claim, and I now know that when it comes to marijuana neither of those things are true. It doesn’t have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications…

We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that.”
