Anthocyanins in Colored Fruits & Vegetables

Anthocyanins in Colored Fruits & Vegetables If you follow what we do at GnuPharma you know that we are deep into ways to modulate the endocannabinoid system with non-cannabis plants.

Obesity & The Endocannabinoid System

Obesity & The Endocannabinoid System Are we missing the mark on obesity? Our current medical system is defined by what I like to call the “insurance pyramid” or the “FDA pyramid”. The FDA studies and approves “medicines” for human use, pharmacies “dispense” the FDA approved “medicines”, and physicians prescribe the FDA approved “medicines”. If things are not in […]

Sleep and the Endocannabinoid System

Sleep and the Endocannabinoid System I recently got asked a question about sleep and sleep regulation. How this works under the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a great example of how your body regulates a major function we all experience and it also presents an opportunity to discuss how medicine and conditions like sleep depravation might […]

The Endocannabinoid System and The Future of Health

The Endocannabinoid System and The Future of Health What will health look like for our children? If we have our way at GnuPharma, way different than it looks now.

Cannabis and Solubility..Oil vs Water

Cannabis and Solubility..Oil vs Water At GnuPharma we study plants and how they modulate the endocannabinoid system (ECS). In fact, we have patents (pending) around our abilities to predictably modulate the ECS with non-cannabis plants.  Non-cannabis plants store their “goodies=medicinal things” as flavonoids, alkaloids, turpenes, and other small plant molecules. For the most part these […]

Can animals get the same benefits from natural products?

Can animals get the same benefits from natural products? Yes! Just like in humans, current research is heavily indicating that the ECS is the master regulatory system in almost all animals. And, just like in humans this is a resources driven system. Resources must be presented to the ECS or the ECS will causes things […]

The Endocannabinoid System | Part One: Your CB2 Neuroreceptor

The Endocannabinoid System | Part One: Your CB2 Neuroreceptor We are beginning our series on the endocannabinoid system with the CB2 neuroreceptor.  The CB2 neuro is rapidly becoming the most well known of the endocannabinoid “sites” due to the prevelance of CBD oils and tinctures.  We will get to those in a sec, but lets […]
