Okay, so I've been thinking about cannabinoid receptors in humans... First, for everyone's benefit, what exactly are cannibinoid receptors? What do they do? How do they function? Realistically, I know that none of you guys are informed scientists with first-hand experience and knowledge on this subject. This is more of a general understanding thread. To my knowledge, cannabinoid receptors in the human brain are chemical receptors that THC and other Cannabis-exclusive chemicals attach too. I'm going to explore that a bit more. If cannabinoids, by definition, are exclusive to the cannabis plant, then logically, cannabinoid receptors in the brain are specifically designed to receive and interact with cannabis exclusive chemicals. Further, if the above statement is true, does that mean that humanity, over the course of time, has evolved brain chemistry and characteristics to interact specifically with Cannabis? If so, what other kinds of plants have this interesting relationship with humanity? Do we have poppy receptors for opium? Do we have receptors for LSD (I think LSD is a derivative or extract from ergot, which is a fungus or something, idk. I heard its an extremely non-toxic chemical.) What about alcohol? I heard that it doesn't... If that is true, then how is it absorbed in comparison? What other kinds of plants guys? Is this a weird-evolutionary-phenomenon that people are ignoring? If the cannabis-related entry above was true? Why aren't people going "wtf"? Does this mean humans have been interacting with the cannabis plant over huge periods of time, enabling them to benefit from its characteristics? It it just me or does it sound like an invitation to produce for the masses, and to smoke, eat, vaporize, do what the fuck ever to absorb such a wonder? Or not? I don't fekin know mang? Don't be gettin all up on my backaboutit.
