Dr. David Allen, a leading medical doctor who is dedicated to studying the medicinal aspects of cannabidiol (CBD), speaks on the discovery of the Endocannabinoid system and the effects of CBD.
Dr. Allen is quoted stating:
“I’m a retired cardiac surgeon and a member of the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) that means I’m a cannabinoid research scientist and I’m here to tell you about the discovery of the endocannabinoid system (the ECS) and the significance and how it will change Madicine.
We discovered the endocannabinoid system about thirty years ago and we really didn’t understand the significance of this discovery.
So we found out that this is a chemical communication that your body has. It’s not electrical, it’s chemical and it’s kinda like the hormone systems that people are familiar with and your body makes these cannabinoids, they’re endogenous so they’re endocannabinoids and they perform some miraculous functions in the body and we’re just learning the significance of these functions.
Basically the endocannabinoid system is responsible for homeostasis.
Most people don’t understand what that really means but it’s the body’s ability to maintain itself and function in a proper environment.
So it’s critically important that that doctors in the future understand this control mechanism.
We’re finding out that manipulation of this endocannabinoid system will control diabetes, it controls cancer, it controls whether you can survive a heart attack or a stroke.
So this is critically important for doctors to understand this new science.
The discovery of the endocannabinoid system is the single most important medical scientific discovery ever and will save more lives then the discovery and application of sterile surgical technique.
I’m a heart surgeon saying that.
So more people will be saved by manipulation of the endocannabinoid system then are currently saved by surgery.”
