Our company is founded on the basis that many ailments may be cured or alleviated through adjusting the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that act on specialised cell receptors, cannabinoid receptors, responsible for many homeostatic functions; the ECS is the interaction of these elements.
Understanding the ECS is one of the newest branches of medicine: the first phytocannabinoid (cannabinoid made by cannabis plants) identified was THC in 1964, however it was only in 1992 that the first endocannabinoid, anandamide, was identified (an endocannabinoid is a cannabinoid made by the human body).
As you may expect for a biological system so newly discovered there is much to be learned, however, there are four recognised properties of the ECS that are crucial to the cannabis revolution:
3.Immune System Modulation
4.Cancer Cell Apoptosis
In the short and medium term it remains likely that the safest and most effective therapeutic interventions into the ECS will be achieved with products containing phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant and it is here that Golders Hill focuses.
