(Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the endocannabinoid system

(Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the endocannabinoid system – scientists estimate that the endocannabinoid system existed in ancient creatures 600 million years ago. The endocannabinoid system in the human body includes diverse and complex functions in both the immune system, the nervous system, and all parts of the body, and is actually a thread connecting the body to the mind. This system also affects human relations with its environment, as it affects its social and general behavior and its ability to act and move beyond restrictive patterns of thinking and behaviors that have been determined by it as a result of events and traumas of the past.
The endocannabinoid system involves all of our body cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) and their receptors, where in every place in the body (in the brain, organs, connective tissue, immune cells) their role is different. When the goal is always the same, maintain homeostasis, ie maintaining a stable internal environment. The cannabinoid receptors are found all over the body, in the cell membranes, and studies show that they are larger than any other receptor system. When cannabinoid receptors receive stimulation, a range of physiological activities begin in the living body.
Phytocannabinoids (PHYTOCANNABINOIDS) are a prime example of plant components that stimulate the stimulation of these cannabinoid receptors.
The most common phytocannabinoid is the THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis. Although THC is recognized as the psychoactive substance that causes “high” marijuana, it has many medical benefits, some of which are familiar (such as pain relief, nausea and depression) and some are still being studied by the researchers.
The THC was first isolated in 1946 in the laboratory by Israeli chemists, headed by Prof. Yechiel Meshulam (winner of the Israel Prize in Chemistry 2000) and his colleagues from the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Hebrew University.
(Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the endocannabinoid system  – The chemical formula of the THC is C21H30O2. Thus, according to the principles of solubility (similar melting is similar, and the longer the chain of hydrocarbons is, the less solubility in water decreases). This material, which contains a long carbon chain, has very low water solubility and is better dissolved in organic solvents (eg oil or alcohol). Is consumed mainly by smoking or oil, because its absorption in swallowing, due to its low solubility in water, is less effective.
THC when it is cold is solid and glazed, and when it is hot it is sticky and sticky. Today synthetic THC can also be produced. When it is synthetically produced, the THC is called: dronabinol (available by prescription in the United States and Canada under the name of marinol) or anbilone \ cesamet when both of these substances have already been approved by the FDA as medicines to treat severe nausea and malnutrition symptoms Due to loss of appetite mainly due to illness (a dangerous condition leading to loss of muscle and fat tissue).
The largest amount of THC is found in the cannabis sativa plant, especially in the flowering areas of the plant. THC, like other cannabinoids, has anti-oxidant properties, that is, antioxidant, so it is concentrated mainly in the flowering parts because its antioxidant properties protect the plant from ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. The cannabinoid neutralizes the dangerous free radicals emitted from the UV rays. This is due to its absorption capacity (absorbs radiation wavelengths between 280 and 315 nm) and thus protects the plant cells.
(Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the endocannabinoid system  – In humans, free radicals cause, among other things, the acceleration of aging and the development of cancer. Researchers therefore believe that THC can inhibit and even prevent such damage in humans as a dietary supplement of these free radicals.
Cannabis, for example, has a combination of two cannabinoids THC and CBD, which today have research support that together reduce chemotherapy pain, relieve nausea and vomiting in patients and may also be able to detect and destroy cancerous cells . Today, there are reports of miraculous healing as a result of cannabis oil.
