The cannabis industry is experiencing unprecedented growth worldwide, this progress in a political level responds essentially to the growing social demand for regulation of the use of medicinal cannabis.
The cannabis plant contains chemical substances that can be useful to treat a wide range of diseases and symptoms.
The chemical components of Cannabis, which are called cannabinoids, activate certain receptors throughout the body that produce pharmacological effects; in particular, in the central nervous system and the immune system.
Possible medicinal benefits of Cannabis for people affected by cancer Include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief and sleep improvement.
Some endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) were identified for the pain modulation, movement control, eating behavior, mood, bone growth, inflammation. neuroprotection, and memory.
Cannabinoids also helps in pain modulation through an antiinflammatory mechanism; a CB2 effect of cannabinoids acting on mast cell receptors was described. It attenuates the release of inflammatory substances such as histamine and serotonin, and in keratinocytes improves the release of opioid analgesics.
Some researchers think endocannabinoid system has an essential role in regulating mood and extinction of aversive memories. In animal studies, CBD was found to have anxiolytic properties.Reference: https://www.cancer.gov/espanol/cancer/tratamiento/mca/pro/cannabis-pdq
Some “phytochemical substances” can be isolated from certain species of mushrooms and plants: these substances have therapeutic properties such as antioxidants and anticancer. These properties help reducing inflammation or acting as protectors in cardiovascular diseases, some of them even help for the maintenance of the immune system.
The combination of phytochemical substances obtained from plants (such as Cannabis, Boswellia, Turmeric, etc.) and mushroom s (such as Reishi, Agaricus or Shiitake) can be potentiated for treatments related to the Immune System (Cancer, Arthritis, etc.), among others.
The need to return to nature opens the field of research in the use and combination of phytochemicals extracted from plants and mushrooms.
