What is cannabis for you: a street drug, a home remedy, or medicine? Maybe you can have a clear answer after hearing this audiobook.

At the beginning of the 20th century, multiple factors and interests converged to stigmatize the use of cannabis through a series of state and local laws. This illegality resulted in the dissemination of false information that strengthens the taboo towards the cannabis plant, despite its natural origin and outstanding benefits.

However, the interest in its therapeutic use increased in 1964 after the discovery of the human endocannabinoid system and the main one responsible for the psychoactive properties of THC, which the researcher Raphael Mechoulam isolated. Studies revealed that this system is involved in multiple physiological processes, homeostasis, and the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment. It also revealed its relationship with various types of pathologies. Right now, it is used to treat chronic and neuropathic pain, diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative pathologies, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

In this audiobook, you will learn about the history of cannabis, the origin of its illegalization, the discovery of the endocannabinoid system, its receptors, and all the homeostatic-physiological functions. You will also learn about its therapeutic uses, alternatives of cannabis as a home remedy, Rick Simpson's Oil (RSO) and its benefits, the apothecaries, and the pharmacology of the active principles of the plant.

If you are interested in learning more about the fascinating medical cannabis, we invite you to enjoy this audiobook that Pharmacology University brings you.
