Endocannabinoids Are In Every Animal With A Backbone

Endocannabinoids imply nothing about the usefulness or otherwise of anything that could up or down regulate the endocannabinoid system. We do know that that the system naturally fights cancer cells through apoptosis. We also know that omega3 fatty acids are used by the body to create endocannabinoids.Teemu wrote:Every multicellular organism has endocrine system. Since all multicellular organisms have hormones, this means that steroids are obviously good and any ban or regulations on anykind of steroids should obviously be abolished. :P
Clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) revisited: can this concept explain the therapeutic benefits of cannabis in migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions?I just recently discovered that there is such a thing as Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD) while researching into fibromyalgia. It's actually on the NIH website -- a government site -- yet treatment for it, using medicinal cannabis, is illegal in the U.S.
Anyway, tonight I thought about doing a web search on "autism and fibromyalgia" and discovered that these are widely considered common comorbidities for females on the autism spectrum. I did a search then on autism and CECD, and there were a lot of results for that as well, including an article from a science publication that cited some positive findings relating the two. Of course, I'm not saying CECD is the cause of autism or that medicinal cannabis is the cure because that would be a huge jump, but I find it very compelling that the same genetic mutations that cause autism (in mice, at least) have been shown to be responsible for CECD.
I wish I'd known to look for studies on these things while I was still enrolled in college since those databases would be great right now... I hate only being able to read the abstracts.
