Cannabis research pioneer hopes CBD is not overlooked

We love this man, Raphael Mechoulam. Beautiful Earth Organics, and specifically Bruce Prince and Matthew Rodriguez have been following Raphael Mechoulam for many years. We consider him the “grandfather of CBD”. You’ll know why after you read this article.

Raphael Mechoulam, an Israeli organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, remembers the letdown after his groundbreaking discoveries surrounding the structure of the cannabis compounds CBD and THC in 1963 and 1964, followed by clinical tests with CBD published in 1980. (<<<=== do you see how long research has been done about this magical plant? Read on! )

“Not much happened,” Mechoulam said, noting that it took more than 30 years before his clinical work on using CBD, or cannabidiol, to treat epilepsy,  became widely accepted.

But even as his work laid the foundation for the modern cannabis industry and for understanding how cannabis interacts with the human body, a white whale eluded research: cannabis acids, which are compounds that are produced in the plant when it is alive and may be more potent than their better-known derivatives, such as CBD and THC.

The naturally occurring CBD acid (CBDA) is a thousand times more potent than CBD in binding to a particular serotonin receptor (the cool hormone that makes you happy and supports well-being) thought to be responsible for alleviating nausea and anxiety.

“It’s an interesting molecule that doesn’t have side effects,” said Dan Peer, managing director of the Center for Translational Medicine and head of the Cancer Biology Research Center at Tel Aviv University.

“Their work is quite innovative, and it definitely builds on what we know related to the potential therapeutic effects of cannabinoids,” Cooper said, adding that the compound could be particularly effective for pain control.

RECAP by Beautiful Earth Organics: 2 things really stand out in this article for us: First, it took more than 30 years for perfectly good research to help people that were suffering with epilepsy (how sad, right?) Secondly, so many people don’t know about the endocannabinoid system and how your body is regulated by it.

Please do your research. Be your own health advocate and let us help you. We are CBD Expert Educators and what we know, we want to tell the world – it would be irresponsible of us not to tell you what we know!
