Once the endocannabinoid system or the ECS is stimulated, it is safe to say that this might be done by cannabinoid production found in marijuana plants. Some herbal plants will also carry the same stimulation and those are called superfoods. However, for the most part, cannabinoid production is key to this kind of stimulation. Cannabis has several healing elements. In fact, a single marijuana plant produces enough to stimulate healing of various medical conditions.
In addition to cannabionoid production from THC and CBD, there are others that might not be so focused, but are still present in herbal plants and when combined does more for specific medical conditions than if they were used alone. Yes, some herbal plants do interact with human endocannabinoid systems to produce medical results. Cannabinoid production can be seen in herbal plants. In some cases, these are compounds that are similar, but not the same as cannabinoids. Let us take a look.
The Other Compounds
Cannabinoid production can be in the form of cannabimimetics, phytocannabinoids and endocannbinoids from herbal plants. Phytocannabinoids are produced by all plants in general. Cannabimimetics are compounds that mimic the cannabinoid production in certain herbal plants. All of these engage with someone’s endocannabinoid system or ECS for a positive outcome. This is the amazing wonder of what nature can produce to help or aid in the treatment of medical conditions. Let us see which one of these herbal plants is known for cannabinoid production.
Echinacea or coneflower is popular for its medical use. It is used to treat the common cold and other similar conditions. People who suffer from arthritis do benefit from coneflower as it relieves their pain. It is often used to reduce fatigue and help people with migraine. Cannabimimetics is one of the compounds found in Echinacea. These compounds interact with the human endocannabinoid system, especially the CB2 receptor. This CB2 receptor helps to regulate inflammation and the immune system.
People know the Electric Daisy plant as a ‘toothache plant.’ It hails from the Amazon. Some people who suffer from toothache use it to kill the pain. Cambridge University conducted formal trials on this herbal plant and discovered the pain blocking receptors contained in it, especially at the nerve endings. Electric Daisy has cannabinoid production of N-isobutylamides, which acts as a stimulant to the CB2 receptor. As a result, it is effective in fighting uncomfortable pain. It is being considered to be used as a base for some of the newest dental medication.
Also known as Radula Marginata, the Liverwort herbal plant stems from New Zealand. It is filled with perrottetineric acid, which works successfully with the CB1 receptor to provide treatment for bronchitis, bladder issues and gallbladder problems. Its cannabinoid production makes it a natural remedy.
Chocolate or Cacao
Chocolate or Cacao is one of the superfoods that has cannabinoid production or something similar. It is helpful in boosting one’s mood from the theobromine that is contained in it. Some people say that if you eat chocolate before smoking weed, it intensifies and increases the high.
Although, black pepper is not as strong and powerful as cannabinoid, it is very effective in the body because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Some experts say that black pepper might be helpful in increasing the effectiveness of specific kinds of drugs associated with treating cancer.
Black Truffles is similar to chocolate or cacao because of the same anandamide it produces. When you eat black truffles, it releases a bliss molecule and binds it to the CB1 receptor in the body. Black truffle has existed longer than cannabis – about 156 million years.
