Happy October everyone! I have a terrific healthy veggie recipe for you this week, as well as a truthful look at marijuana’s effects on the brain.
Work continues here on my online cannabis topicals course. I have been making all kinds of cannabis infused remedies including pain relief balms, sunscreen, after sun spray, wrinkle creams and eye serums. Next week I will be working on bath soaks and shaving creams. Sign up here for the latest updates on the new upcoming course as well as special deep discounts and bonuses.
The largest neurotransmission system in our bodies is the endocannabinoid system which is activated by cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. In the brain, cannabinoid receptors abound abundantly in the basal ganglia, hippocampus, and cerebellum, but not in the lower brainstem.
The lower brainstem controls respiratory and cardiovascular functions. It is the absence of cannabinoid receptors in the brain stem that is responsible for the unparalleled safety of cannabis. This the reason why there has never been a fatal overdose as there is no risk of respiratory or cardiovascular failure.
The cannabinoid system not only prevents cell death, it is also responsible for neurogenesis – the creation of new brain cells. The system facilitates the process of neurogenesis throughout the entire human life span, from embryonic development to late adulthood. In the brain, neurogenesis takes place primarily in the hippocampus which is responsible for memory, learning and spatial orientation.
The classic French provincial vegetable dish, ratatouille, is even better when infused cannabis. With all the flavors and textures going on, you will barely notice the flavor of cannabis, if you notice it at all. All of a sudden, the side dish will become the star of your meal.
If you have leftovers, they make a terrific ratatouille cannabis-infused omelet!

I use marijuana oil to medicate this recipe. My making Marijuana Oil tutorial will help you learn how to make it.
See You Next Week!
