TRUCE will respond to misleading contentions about what medicinal cannabis will mean for Utah as such accusations become active parts of the public dialog, and, absolutely, we’ll talk about dirty pool being played by various parties in government, business and elsewhere who place their perceived best interests above those of patients – however – our charter is more expansive than just getting caught up in being reactive to the repeated stale arguments from the past which we can debunk in our sleep by now. As can many of you.
Lately then, the TRUCE blog has been focusing on helping to increase awareness in Utah of the bigger scientific and medical picture.
For one thing, we’re helping increase understanding THAT medicinal cannabis has a wide range of researched applications helpful to many sufferers – applications which can be reliably delivered with fewer side effects, at lower cost and greater patient satisfaction… …to the point that this is no longer truly “new news” for those paying attention.
That is, the actual “unintended consequences” of MC for Utah bode to be on balance, much more positive than negative.
More recently, then, we’ve begun looking more at HOW it is that one plant can help relieve such a wide variety of symptoms, and, with increasing indications that it may do more than simply relieve symptoms for a number of conditions.
Lately, e.g., we’ve introduced the concept of Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CED) and how cannabis can provide the body’s Endocannabinoid System with the building blocks it needs to better fight against disease, injury and other imbalances in the ECS.
Now, to put cannabis in even broader focus, science is starting to understand that these findings point to cannabis having a role in preventing illness in the first place.
As this exciting article from non-profit CBD Project demonstrates. HIghest recommendation…!
Here’s a brief excerpt from a fascinating read…
“Cannabinoid therapy is connected to the part of the biological matrix where body and brain meet. Since CBD and other compounds in cannabis are so similar to the chemicals created by our own bodies, they are integrated better than many synthetic drugs.
According to Bradley E. Alger, a leading scientist in the study of endocannabinoids with a PhD from Harvard in experimental psychology, “With complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and virtually all of the body’s organs, the endocannabinoids are literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system, we begin to see a mechanism that could connect brain activity and states of physical health and disease.”
