Functional Medicine Explained

Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids: Plants are medicine. As more research is conducted, the more information there is when it comes to medical options for various types of ailments, conditions, diseases, disorders etc… Chiropractor, Dr. Alex Jimenez investigates and brings insight to these developing medicines. How they can help patients, what they can do and what they cannot do.

Most know about cannabinoids from the marijuana plant. The most recognized cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the compound that causes feelings of euphoria.

Scientists identified cannabinoids only in cannabis. However, new research has found these same medicinal qualities in many plants, including black pepper, broccoli, carrots, clove, echinacea and ginseng.

These vegetables or spices won’t get you high, but having an understanding of how these different plants affect the human body can lead to vital health discoveries.
