Editor's Notes

  1. Cannabis acts by suppressing runaway inflammation. CB1 receptor activation tasked with preventing overstimulation of the intestinal movement and secretion which can be caused by excessive inflammation. It can therefore reduce the likelihood of diarrhea. When CB2 receptors (mainly in the immune system) are activated, the amount of programmed cell death (apoptosis) increases for T-cells and the number of T-cells decreases. Additionally, fewer white blood cells, including T-cells, neutrophils, and macrophages, are called to the site of damage or potential damage. Therefore, damaging inflammation is reduced.
