I apologize. We should legalize medical marijuana, We should do it nationally. And, we should do it now. We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that.
CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials with one pure CBD product, There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other conditions.
These guys put their bodies on the line for us and the fans. And as they’re hurting and in pain. The use of CBD when it comes to relieving pain needs to become an alternative. I think [denying the use of CBD to athletes] is cruel.
Science Behind CBD - The Endocannabinoid System
For most of history, the effects of cannabis on the human body were little understood. Then, in the 1990’s, scientists discovered endocannabinoids, the natural cannabis-like molecules produced by the human body. Scientists began to realize cannabis exerted its effects, in part, by mimicking our endocannabinoids.
It appears the main function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis—biological harmony in response to changes in the environment. Taxonomic investigation pevealed that the endocannabinoid system is incredibly old, having evolved over 500 million years ago. Moreover, it is present in all vertebrates—mammals, bird, reptiles, amphibians, fish, etc, all produce endocannabinoids!
Research initially suggested endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the brain and nerves, but scientists later found that the receptors are present throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.
We now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function.
Endocannabinoids are arguably one of the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules known to man.
