Praise for CBD
“A magnificent approach to the use of medical cannabis in both humans and pets, not only for caregivers, patients, and their families but also for skeptical physicians. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in discovering the real power of this millennial medicinal plant.”
Synergy and Plant Medicine
While science tends to focus on the classification and study of species one by one, the story of the evolution of life on planet Earth is one of profound interconnection. Human interaction with plants—our cultivation and consumption of them—has drastically altered and changed those plants over the long term. In the same way, plants (and plant-derived medicines) have altered and changed us. Our bodies shift in response to them, and over time we evolve as a result. Our co-evolution with cannabis has had reciprocal benefits to both species.
An Ethnobotany of CBD-Rich Cannabis
When I (Juliana Birnbaum) applied to work at Synergy Wellness in 2015, I needed to find a local job but was somewhat skeptical about the concept of medical marijuana and assumed that most people were actually using it to, as they say, “get high.”
Not that I had a problem with that—as a person who likes to write, make music, hike, practice yoga, and dance, I had long found that cannabis helped me drop in quickly and deeply to creative work and sparked innovative thoughts and ideas.
In summary, the endocannabinoid system is newly discovered and is an extremely important system to our survival. It maintains and restores balance in multiple ways throughout the body, which affects varied issues regarding health and disease. If injury or disease occurs, the system shifts from one that regulates well-being, pleasure, and energy to one that restores balance and normal functioning processes. The system simultaneously pinpoints its actions and is active throughout the body.
It is present throughout the body and brain and appears and disappears in a matter of seconds. It affects conditions as varied as multiple forms of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, degenerative brain diseases, inflammation, pain, and mood
