Listen In; You all know efficacy is very important to me so I went to the source. Listen to this article By Leafly written December 13,2016. This is an interview with DR. Lumir Hanus Who Discovered the First Endocannabinoid
2017 marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most important discoveries in cannabinoid science. On March 24, 1992, Lumír Hanuš, a Czech analytical chemist working in Israel with American pharmacologist William Devane, isolated the first known endocannabinoid in the human brain. They named it anandamide, after the Sanskrit word for joy or bliss.
Both researchers were working—and Mr. Hanuš still is—at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, on the team of Raphael Mechoulam, the world’s leading expert on cannabinoids. Nearly three decades earlier, in 1964, Mechoulam became the first to isolate tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.
“It has become clear that the healing potential of the whole plant is stronger than isolated compounds on their own.”
The discovery of anandamide confirmed that the human brain produces cannabinoids of its own, which bind with cannabinoid receptors throughout the brain and body. Evidence suggests these cannabinoid receptors are involved in motor coordination, memory processing, control of appetite, pain modulation, neuroprotection, and more.
In the years to follow, thousands of studies have been conducted on the endocannabinoid system and on cannabinoids of all stripes. Meanwhile, additional cannabinoids continue to be discovered.
This podcast consist of three very important medical research papers I would like to share with you to understand Cannabinoids (CBD) - (THC) - (CBG) - (CBN), and more.
Listen to the science of it all
