  •  Cannabinoids do not affect the brain like alcohol (2+ / 0-)

    The herbal cannabinoids found in cannabis resins mimic the natural cannabinoids produced by our body's endocannabinoid system. There are over 80 herbal cannabinoids in cannabis resins and only about 6 of those are psychoactive. Most cannabinoids are not psychoactive and some like CBD actually kills the THC high. It is possible to use cannabinoids to treat significant ailments without producing a high at all. My mother has been using herbal cannabis to treat the chronic pain from fibromyalgia for the last four years and she hasn't gotten high once.

    Really don't mind if you sit this one out. My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. I may make you feel but I can't make you think..Jethro Tull
