And while we can all agree that we should not make marijuana available to children except in medically necessary situations, we must ask ourselves “Is Child Protective Services going to grow and change with the times?” Unfortunately so far, the answer has been a big fat NO. Even in states where medical and recreational cannabis use has been legalized, parents are still at risk of having cases opened against them and possibly even their children taken. Live in…

Cannabinoid Physiology: Influence on Metabolism and Body Fat Regulation

There is accumulating scientific evidence that theendocannabinoid system plays an important role in how the body regulates energy (calorie) balance, as well as carbohydrate and fat metabolism. As such, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is an oft-overlooked key in the regulation of body weight and body composition (note: “body composition” here refers to the relative amounts of lean mass and body fat). Scientists have uncovered that endo/phytocannabinoids act via central (brain) and peripheral (gut, liver, muscle and fat) mechanisms. Central control of appetite, satiety, cravings, and food-seeking behavior involves a complex interplay between various centers of the brain. Different areas of the…

This is a common reaction to the suggestion that cannabis can be used as a suppository. Rectal administrations (suppositories) have an unfairly bad reputation in North America, despite the diverse benefits they offer. This article aims to educate about the advantages associated with the rectal application of cannabis and provide a simple set of guidelines for the effective use of suppositories.
