Cannabis is a threat to society. If plant utilization is not regulated in harmony.
The cannabis industry and utilization is growing and expanding globally, but in Finland it is attempts are made to prevent misuse. Better interaction and solutions are needed.
Our job is to find ways and work together to find harmony.
Although we speak boldly about cannabis. We offer and focus only on promoting the utilization of completely legal and drug-free Cannabis sativa products.
If our site arouses opposition or inspiration in you, then take contact. Interact with a better place than the earth.
Cannabis medicinesCannabinoid-based medicine will be ready in Finland? Cannabis drugs and their use will increase, and with this, the diverse utilization of cannabis will increase exponentially. This page summarizes what cannabis drugs and cannabinoid-based medicine are all about.
Drug cannabis refers to the same as intoxicating cannabis, but cannabis drugs are not always intoxicating
There are many types of cannabis drugs. Available in intoxicating THC-containing drugs cannabis and CBD-only cannabis drugs. Thus, cannabis drugs are not always intoxicating and drug cannabis is well established to mean intoxicating cannabis. Sure, light cannabis, or CBD cannabis, is also medical, but it’s not the same as colloquial medical cannabis, recreational cannabis, substance abuse cannabis, or why you ever want to call it that.
For Cansa, the most important thing is to promote and develop cannabis drugs and cannabinoid-based medicine, even at the risk of ignorant people associating us with cannabis activists.
The safety of cannabinoid-based medicines and cannabinoid-based medicine is easily confused with the recreational use of cannabis, so it is especially important to emphasize that Cansa Oy’s mission is to promote the utilization of only completely legal cannabis products.
What does cannabinoid-based medicine mean and why are cannabis and cannabinoids its foundation?
Cannabis and its more than 113 cannabinoids and hundreds of other compounds (terpenes, flavonoids, cannabicins) are the foundation of the cannabinoid-based medical field, as no other plant has identified such a wide variety of cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids, together with more than 400 other active compounds found in cannabis, maintain the balance of the endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system is so important to human health that the United States Health Agency concluded in its review that it is associated with almost all human diseases (1).
The endocannabinoid system was not discovered until 1993 and since then it has finally begun to be understood why cannabis has been such a versatile drug for hundreds of different diseases for over millennia.
As cannabinoid research accelerates, the utilization of cannabis drugs and an entirely new field of medicine — cannabinoid-based medicine — are increasing.
A new era of cannabis utilization – the cannabinoid-based medicine industry
Cannabinoid-based medicine and cannabis drugs, as well as their utilization, are based on the balancing effects of cannabinoid-derived cannabinoids in the human endocannabinoid system. With the development of the cannabinoid-based medicine industry, a whole new era in the history of cannabis utilization is emerging.
Cannabis is the only plant on earth that produces hundreds of different cannabinoids. The human body itself produces endocannabinoids and they have receptors around them throughout the body. These receptors are called cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2). These two form one of the most extensive receptor systems in humans, called the endocannabinoid system (endo = internal).
Endocannabinoid system reseptors (CB1, CB2) are located around the body and are responsible for vital functions such as immune defense, thinking, appetite, sleep, mood and pain sensation.
The endocannabinoid system is found in all animals except insects.
We still do not fully understand its purpose, but studies suggest that the endocannabinoid system plays an important evolutionary role (2).
The internal cannabinoid system stimulates appetite, helps to forget, relieves stress and can also be responsible for well-being after sports.
Cannabis is more than just cannabinoids. There are more than 400 active compounds (cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, cannabins) and each cannabis plant is different. Cannabisins are also of interest because of their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties (3).
Different cannabinoid, terpene, and flavonoid profiles of different cannabis cultivars produce different individual and synergistic effects to balance the function of the endocannabinoid system. (4)
The US health agency even considers the endocannabinoid system so important that it has been linked to almost all human diseases (1).
The endocannabinoid system is like an equalizer in stereos, but it has over 400 controls. Think of it as THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, and hundreds of other cannabinoids and terpenes have their own regulators. Some cannabinoids are psychoactive, others are not.
Terpenes produce aromas, while flavonoids produce flavors. All this is regulated by the so-called cannabinoid profile.
The famous Sour Disel cannabis variety tastes like pepper because it contains carophyllene. It is also found in black pepper, cloves and cinnamon. Super lemon Haze contains limonene, which is found in a lot of citrus peels. With the right cannabinoid combination and long-term processing, unique cannabis products are produced.
One beautiful day in the future, it will be possible to feed the blood of a sick person (or animal) for computer analysis, and it will find which of these 113 cannabinoids and hundreds of terpenes, as well as flavonoids, will help.
There are probably 10,000 synthetic drugs in the world, but none that would simply make people force well – that is, the same people in a better mood.
If you can make a person feel better when he is sick. So isn’t that disease half-won then? We humans have an incredible capacity for healing, but first we need to be well. Feeling good mobilizes our healing capacity.
Cannabis drugs produce many medicinal effects that are only beginning to be understood as research develops and is released after decades of research bans. Nevertheless, one of the best therapeutic effects of cannabis and its cannabinoids is the plant’s ability to help with relaxation, sleep, appetite, thinking, pain, and stress management.
