Hi and welcome
This homepage presents the new book and medical cannabis guide “(Endo)Cannabinoids”. An advanced guide to cannabinoids. Furthermore, this domian will be the start of a new informative medical cannabis video platform.
The book (Endo)Cannabinoids is a new hard copy advanced guide/book to the four different types of cannabinoids (endo-cannabinoids, phyto-cannabinoids, synthetic cannabinoids and cannabinoids from yeast). (for more info press the four icons above)
The guide is for those wanting to know the basic therapeutic potential of the cannabis plant and the different phyto-cannabinoids.
“Jonas Østergaard wrote an advanced guide to cannabinoid-based drugs, supplements and dermatology, as the book describes each cannabinoid individually and in combination with other cannabinoids to describe the so called “entourage effect”. DR. Raphael Mechoulam, University of Jerusalem, Israel.
Phyto (indicating a plant or vegetation) cannabinoids are molecules produced by the trichomes of the cannabis flowers. Humans produce similar molecules named endo-cannabinoids without any consumption of cannabis.
Phyto-cannabinoids can be used internally as well as externally, and influence how many and which endo-cannabinoids a person will produce. As endo-cannabinoids and their receptors seems to be involved in almost any disease, the medical potential of cannabinoids seems endless and forgotten. New medications containing THC have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to reduce nausea after chemotherapy and to improve appetite in AIDS patients.
The book start with a quote that illustrate why so many people and scientist see the therapeutic potential of phyto-cannabinoids.
HON. FRANCIS YOUNG – DEA ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE – 1988: “In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating 10 raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within the supervised routine of medical care.”

Besides the hard copy cannabinoid guide, a CBD user guide is also provided, you can read more below.
In July 2020, researchers from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are recommending more research into how CBD derived from cannabis, might help treat the dangerous lung inflammation from the coronavirus (sars-covid-2).
Cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical products is an emerging field in the clinical practice in many countries. The regulatory changes around the world in recent years makes it possible to create a larger knowledge base and understanding of cannabinoids and their influence on the human physiology. However, this is still questioned by a majority of physicians as they demand more science and education in order to handle cannabis in the clinical setting.
Even though many clinical trials are needed in order to understand the full potential of cannabinoids, the literature illustrate that we know more about cannabis than we know about many other drugs. The latter includes approved pharmaceutical drugs on the market.
The book can be read from start to end, but also used as reference guide book. In this regard, it is recommended that the first four sections be read first.
