Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Overview

At a high level, GunPharma’s patents (pending) are based on the companies theory that the endocannabinoid system sits above all other major human systems and manages homeostasis.  That sounds complicated but really is not. In a similar way that we understand the computer in our vehicles would manage and “regulate” our vehicles, we have a similar computer called our brain. Thru the hypothalamus and using the endocannabinoid system, the body is able to manage and regulate every cell in the body and every major system in the body. It is GnuPharma’s assertion that we as humans, along with all other mammals, reptiles, avians, and fish which share the endocannabinoid system, use the endocannabinoid system to manage homeostasis within our bodies. It is also GnuPharma’s assertion that we are resource depleted in the endocannabinoid system, that the endocannabinoid system is a heavily resources driven system, and that resources are provided to the endocannabinoid system most naturally as nutrition.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Background

In our evolutionary cycle, before we developed a brain, we developed an endocannabinoid system, we also developed a central nervous system in this same ancestor, the sea squirt.

In an endocannabinoid event, neurons fire differently than other central nervous system neuro events. Neurons fire more basic and require resources at the time of firing. Other neuro systems do not work the same. The endocannabinoid neuro firing is more basic and elegant than other neuro events.

The endocannabinoid system is the only system that connects your brain to every single cell in your body. Further the endocannabinoid system connects and interfaces to every other major human system, even further, research indicates that in every major system, the endocannabinoid system is the controlling system.

A major part of your neurology, called reverse signaling (DSI) was just discovered in the early 2000’s. This is your neurological “back channel” and is only possible and completely dependent on your endocannabinoid system.

Research indicates that without pieces of this system, no mammal can survive very long.

The endocannabinoid system is in every mammal, every avian, every reptile, every fish. Most insects lack an endocannabinoid system, however, insects that bite mammals have endocannabinoid receptors in their mouths, for instance a tick.

Biochanin A is an endocannabinoid effector and in particular influences the CB1 neuroreceptor by acting as an FAAH uptake inhibitor. Some mouthful! But all this means is that Biochanin A allows reaction at CB1 to last longer.

Red Clover, for instance

c-205-red-clover

Contains a flavonoid called Biochanin A

Similar to Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine

The GnuPharma system of building herbal supplements is very similar to Ayurvedic medicine or Chinese medicine. These are “templates” that a practitioner can use to assemble an herbal remedy. In a similar way we have a template we use to assemble GnuPharma formulations.

This template is the endocannabinoid system. It allows a lens with which to view the human body, to formulate and target nutrition to specific areas, with somewhat specific outcomes which are and will be determined.

Can the endocannabinoid system be influenced?

Certainly we know from the medical cannabis community that the endocannabinoid system can be influenced, further we know that influencing it in very specific ways can cause very specific effects

One major university has been studying cannabis since 1968.  Further, they are the world leader in studying plants and plant compound.  They currently have mapped over 4000 different plant based compounds for effects not only within the endocannabinoid system, but other major systems as well.

GnuPharma surmises that there are certainly other ways to effects this major system and will be exploring some of those in the future.

How does GnuPharma influence the endocannabinoid system?

Yes, most certainly! Consider that almost every animal on the planet has an endocannabinoid system. This is a resources driven system and we all need resources to feed the endocannabinoid system. Things like avians, reptiles, and mammals have no access to cannabis, so how do they provide resources to this vital system?

Very new research indicates that many very common herbs and plants contain flavonoids which perform actions within the endocannabinoid system. What is a flavonoid? Flavonoids are the things that give plants their properties. So, their smell, their color, and their taste are determined by the flavonoids they contain.

Recent research is indicating that these flavonoids are the resources that drive our endocannabinoid system.

GnuPharma™ Science- Recap

To recap, GnuPharma has theorized and now is in university level research to validate that the endocannabinoid system is the master regulatory system of humans and is influenceable by plant based flavonoids. This influence is nutritional as the endocannabinoid system is a resources driven system and relies on plant flavonoids or the ability to break down plant flavonoids to provide very common and necessary chemical mediators.

Simply put, in a similar way to our understanding of how and why we need vitamins and minerals, we believe you need plant based flavonoids. They provide the building blocks for our endocannabinoids system and other lesser neurological systems.

By providing resources, in a very targeted fashion, we believe the human body will heal itself.

Product Information

Disclaimer

GnuPharma™ does not provide any products which should be considered medicines.  All of our products are nutritional and our patents have to do with nutritionally feeding a healthy endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is directly and indirectly responsible for many functions and process within the body. In particular the immune response which manages inflammation. Inflammation is a major health issue and related to many diseases. By providing valuable nutrients to the endocannabinoid system, we supercharge it and give it the resources it needs to support these vital systems.
