Feeling Crummy? You Might Just Be Marijuana Deficient
Posted by Marijuana Doctors on 05/06/2010 in Medical Marijuana Research
If you’re not feeling 100% you may just need a little marijuana. Seriously. The cannabinoids found in marijuana actually mimic compounds called endocannabinoids, which are naturally produced by our bodies and are key factors for maintaining good health. This means that for some people, a marijuana deficiency could lead to serious health problems.
Recent research has shown that these endocannabinoids play a key role in many biological functions, including blood pressure, appetite, bone mass, anxiety control, motor coordination and reproduction. A study conducted by National Academy of Sciences also found that mice with an inadequate endocannabinoid system experienced an increase in premature death and were also unusually underactive.
Other scientific research has shown that ailments such as migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other treatment-resistant conditions may be caused by an underlying clinical endocannabinoid deficiency—which may explain why cannabis is such an effective medicine for these medical conditions and countless others.
So if you’re not feeling 100%, talk to your doctor about medical marijuana and how it can balance your endocannabinoid system. Not sure how to get medical marijuana? Visit MarijunaDoctors.com, where you can find qualified medical marijuana doctors in all 14 legal states.
