IN PARASITIC WORM iINFECTION BOTH HOST AND WORM PRODUCE CANNABIS-LIKE MOLECULES

I found this truly bizarre.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0822164157.htm

Parasitic worms have an endocannabinoid system that may help the worm and host survive by reducing pain and inflammation in the host.

Endocannabinoids are natural cannabinoids produced by the body.
It may also cause the host to get the munchies providing more nutrients to the host-and the worm.

Another interesting find is that one study reported that black truffle mushrooms make anandamide, a type of endocannabinoid, possibly as a mechanism to attract truffle hogs that eat the truffles and disperse their spores.

Really weird, Now that they're looking for cannabinoids they may be more common in nature then everyone thought. Even very primitive organisms may have receptors and uses for it.

Nothing from real science... as we sees today they listen politicians and what they will say on cannabis... like they are true scientific authority..

in most of a countries are still forbidden right cause of reason as goverments dont
give a damn about any science or humanism...

hope they needed it(cannabis) and same repressive aparatus then kick their own ass..

Thanks for posting the article. It is interesting indeed.

"It could impact behavior, pain, and host-helminth interactions," she said. "Without the endocannabinoid system, infected hosts would have bigger worm burdens. In the lab, when we inhibited this pathway in mice, they were worse off -- they ended up with more worms in their bodies."

Now that's an interesting statement!
I wonder how our cannabis use affects potential parasite infection?
