At the leading edge of new treatment paradigm

Medical Cannabis is new to most Canadians. But is it the new normal? As scientific understanding of the body’s internal cannabinoid system advances, the answers may surprise us all.

How cannabis works

After 50 centuries of medicinal use scientists are finally discovering how cannabis works 

The discovery of the human endocannabinoid system in the early 1990’s has been called “one of the most exciting developments in brain chemistry of our time.” Subsequent research has revealed that cannabinoid receptors are more abundant in the brain than any other type of neurotransmitter. And cannabinoids don’t just play a central role regulating the human central nervous system.  A second type of cannabinoid receptor is found throughout the immune and the peripheral nervous system as well as in the gut, spleen, liver, heart, blood vessels, lymph cells, endocrine glands and reproductive organs.

A brave new future.

What does the future hold?

Today cannabis is increasingly recognized as a treatment for a wide range of symptoms and conditions from epilepsy to chronic pain. Cannabinoid scientists hope to pave the way for the new century’s first true medical revolution. National Access Cannabis will contribute to this change by sharing knowledge and educating members as new discoveries are made.

We’ll also encourage our members to be part of it, by sharing their experience with researchers.
