Marijuana Deficiency?? Is it possible?

While browsing facebook today, I came across an interesting article about marijuana I would like to share. I am a strong believer in Medical Marijuana and have seen first hand the benefits it can have on patients.

However, this article comes to the conclusion that the marijuana isn't just helping keep the symptoms in check, but actually has the missing components our body needs that cause such ailments as: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraines and Fibromyalgia.

Why is this? Most humans are what scientists call endocannabinoid deficient. These endocannabinoids help regulate appetite, anxiety control, blood pressure, bone mass, reproduction, motor control and more. Marijuana naturally fills the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain.

Another important thing this article discussed was the difference in "intoxicants" and how marijuana is "remarkably non-toxic"! You can do more harm to your body (especially your liver) with a couple of Tylenol then you could ever do with marijuana.

Here's the story on Marijuana Deficiency if you would like to read it. I know this doesn't touch on the subject of weight loss, but it does concern healthier living and so I felt it should be included.
