Introduction to Cannabinoids

To start to understand how cannabis effects our body first we need to understand our endocannabinoid system and what it controls. We will also go over certain Cannabinoids and their effects on the body. The endocannabinoid system is made up of a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brain as well as the central and peripheral nervous system of mammals. Cannabinoids control the homeostasis of the body and help to regulate functions of both organs and tissue. So since we have a endocannabinoid system we are able to take in phytocannabinoids which come from outside the body and have them actually effect our brain and body functions as well. Some cannabinoids are psychoactive and some are not. An example of a cannabinoid that effects the brain is THC this is also the most talked about cannabinoid and tends to get most of the attention. However recently CBD had been gaining in popularity among researchers. This is because CBD can have great effects on people who suffer from seizures or other symptoms of epilepsy. This can include but not limited to lowering the number of and severity of these seizures. It can also lower the psychoactive effects of other cannabinoids allowing THC to fight cancer without leaving the patient in a haze for hours after treatment. This helps people keep up their weight and appetite which also increases the effectiveness of other forms of treatment.

Cannabis for Spiritual Purposes

By | Cannabis, Hemp, History, Spirituality | No Comments

The “Church of Califari” believes that using Cannabis for Spiritual Purposes is just as important as using Cannabis for Medicinal Reasons!

“Legalize It!” -Peter Tosh

Naturally, Califari believes all states should make Cannabis legal for Medicinal and Spiritual purposes!  Califari believes Cannabis should be a legal sacrament for spiritual uses for its members 21 and over just as Red Wine is used as a sacrament in the Christian Church.

Prior to the USA’s forty year prohibition, Cannabis has been used in a entheogenic context in India since the Vedic period dating back to approximately 1500BCE, but perhaps as far back as 2000BCE. There are several references in Greek mythology to a powerful drug that eliminated anguish and sorrow. Herodotus wrote about early ceremonial practices by the Scythians, thought to have occurred from the 5th to 2nd century BCE. Itinerant Hindu saints have used it in India for centuries. [1]

In modern culture the spiritual use of cannabis has been spread by the disciples of the Rastafari movement, who use use cannabis as a part of their worshiping of their King, Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, and as an aid to meditation.

Now it is time for the next wave of Spiritual Cannabis Achievers to restate how Cannabis and Spirituality compliment each other just like Peanut Butter & Jelly!

“For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.” – Albert Einstein on Hemp
