The cannabis plant is replete with a type of cannabinoid called phytocannabinoids. However, the term cannabinoid actually refers to a class of chemicals that act on cannabinoid receptors. Even so, cannabinoids are not exclusive to cannabis. To mess it up even more, there are three different types of cannabinoids, depending on the origin. The basic principle of cannabinoids can be summarized below:
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds. They owe their name to the way they catalyze various biological responses of cannabinoid receptors. And although cannabinoids are very present in cannabis, they are also found in other plants, produced internally by animals and humans, and can even be synthesized in laboratories.
You may be surprised to learn that cannabinoids are present in mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and in the anthropoids of all life (that is, us, humans). It is estimated that cannabinoid receptors have existed in these creatures for more than 500 million years, when evolution allowed the transition from life in the ocean to the earth. If the first animals that walked the earth evolved to have cannabinoid receptors, it is very likely that they were vital for their survival. After all, the Fanerozoic Eon (530 million years ago) was a period of time based on the spirit of “the law of the strongest”.
Canabidiol (or CBD) – Why Does It Only Grow Up?
Proponents of cannabis have long talked about its medicinal benefits, but some potential uses of the plant are surprising. Its consumption worldwide is constantly on the rise and promises to revolutionize medicine as we know it, especially with the use of cannabidiol (CBD).
But what is canabidiol? It is a chemical of the plant Cannabis sativa, also known as marijuana. More than 80 chemicals, known as cannabinoids, have been identified in this plant. Although delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main active ingredient, cannabidiol makes up about 40% of cannabis extracts and has been studied for many different uses.
One of the most important qualities of CBD, as it is known, is the lack of interference in psychic activity, as it is free from THC. In layman’s terms, this means that cannabidiol will not leave you “stoned”, which is one of the reasons for its release in several countries.
People take cannabidiol, orally, to fight anxiety, bipolar disorder, dystonia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia. A prescription nasal spray (Sativex, from GW Pharmaceuticals) containing THC and cannabidiol is used for muscle pain and stiffness in people with multiple sclerosis in more than 25 countries.
In addition to helping treat these diseases, clinical scientific research ensures that CBD is also effective against arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections and some neurological disorders.
Some preclinical studies have shown that cannabidiol has a large antitumor property. The most important research to reveal these powerful tumor-inhibiting effects came in 2015 and concluded that “CBD slows the progression of many types of cancer, including breast, lung, prostate and colon cancers.”
Cannabidiol hinders the growth of cancer cells, sometimes favoring their elimination. Therefore, it is not surprising that there are many stories about “miracle” cures with the use of CBD.
Now is the right time!
Is it time to think outside the box and open the range of benefits that this medicinal plant can bring? Countries around the world have already legalized their medicinal and recreational use, agreeing that the luminous side is infinitely greater than the dark side. It would have to be withdrawn from the hands of the traffickers and brought to the population the knowledge and support needed so that their use is always done in a responsible and conscious way.
But how to consume the CBD safely?
There are several ways to consume CBD at safe doses and CBD oil is the most common version. You can consume it in the form of oils, vapes and even edibles. Many CBD brands offer the best products but not all of them are truly reliable.

Well, if you'll notice then the moon takes twenty-nine days to complete its lunar cycle, whereas women's menstrual cycle is generally 28 days! Coincidence? I think, not.
It is believed that when a woman goes through her menstrual cycle, she goes through the different lunar energies. In fact, in ancient times it was said that the natural rhythm of women was to menstruate under a new moon and ovulate under a full moon.
At the same time, it is also believed that the cycle and its stages are connected to different seasons, namely, spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
Let us see how the lunar cycle is related to a woman's menstrual cycle!
It must be noted that the menstruation period is during the new moon period and also during the winter season. It is said that this is a reflective phase; a phase of silence, introspection, and solitude. During this phase, a woman's body is more sensitive, and so they're able to connect with it and hear the messages it gives. Interestingly, this is also the time when a woman naturally recycles energy as she menstruates, and hence, it's also the for their rest and recovery.
The Crescent moon represents the pre-ovulation period. This is also the season of spring, and so the time corresponds to an increase in physical energy. During this period, a woman's mental strength is at its peak and their thoughts are much clearer. At the same time, emotions are more stable during this period, and because of which women tend to be more social and outgoing.
This phase of the moon represents ovulation, and the season associated with this phase is summer. It must be noted that this period is full of energy and vitality. At the same time, this period plays a significant role in the lives of women because it's actually a fertile phase in all aspects of their life, be it personal or professional. During this period, the self-confidence and self-esteem in women tend to rise, and along with this, an increase in their sex drive can be seen very well.
This phase of the moon represents pre-menstruation, which is also associated with the autumn season. During this period, a woman's physical energy starts to decline. Metaphorically, just like a tree sheds its leaves, a woman, too, feels the need to let go of anything that is not benefiting her. At the same time, memory and the ability to concentrate decrease in this period.
I hope, now you will not think of the moon just as a celestial body, but as a companion in the lives of women!

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed Pak TV channels to stop airing what it calls indecency and intimacy in dramas, Samaa TV reported.
A notification issued by the authority states that it has been receiving numerous complaints from viewers who believe that the content being depicted in dramas does not represent the "true picture of Pakistani society".
"PEMRA finally got something right: Intimacy and affection between married couples isn't 'true depiction of Pakistani society and must not be 'glamourized'. Our 'culture' is control, abuse, and violence, which we must jealously guard against the imposition of such alien values," said Reema Omer, Legal Advisor, South Asia, International Commission of Jurists.
"Hugs, caress scenes, extramarital affairs, vulgar and bold dressing, bed scenes and intimacy of married couples are being glamourized in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," PEMRA stated, as per the report.
The authority added that it has directed channels time and again to review content with "indecent dressing, controversial and objectionable plots, bed scenes and unnecessary detailing of events".
Most complaints received by the PEMRA Call Centre during September concern drama serial "Juda Huay Kuch is Tarah", which created quite a storm on social media for showing an unwitting married couple as foster siblings in a teaser for an upcoming episode. However, it only turned out to be a family scheme after the full episode aired, but by that time criticism had mounted on HUM TV for using the themes of incest to drive the plot, the report said.

Dozens of female high school and university students in Afghanistan have joined vocational centers to learn tailoring and cosmetology as the women and girls have been banned from school and university since the Taliban took over the country, Tolo News reported.
According to these girls, sitting at home is very difficult for them, therefore they are willing to learn a profession.
"It has been a couple of months that we are at home since schools and universities were closed. We have to learn a profession or a job because we can't sit like this at home," said Samira Sharifi, a student.
"I want to learn a profession for my future to help my family, we want our schools to be opened so that we can carry on with our education," said Mahnaz Ghulami, a student.
Most of the trainees in the vocational centres are students of high schools and universities.
After the closure of high schools and universities across Afghanistan, Herat female students have started gaining vocational training in the province.
"We have decided to learn tailoring along with our education," said Shaqaiq Ganji, a student.
"It's necessary for every woman to learn tailoring to help her family and her husband, especially in this bad economic situation," said Laili Sofizada, a teacher.
Due to the closure of schools and universities, the number of students in vocational centers doubled compared to recent years, the report added.
"Our classes had the capacity of 20 to 25 students but we increased it to 45 students, because most of the students have lost their spirit, and their schools and universities have closed," said Fatima Tokhi, director of technical and professional affairs at the Herat department of labour and social affairs.
The Labour and Social Affairs department of Herat said the department is working to provide more opportunities for Herat girls and women to learn vocational training.
"The art and professional sector and the kindergarten departments have started their activities, we support them and supervise their activities," said Mulla Mohammad Sabit, head of the labour and social affairs of Herat.
During the past two months, most of the women and girls who worked in state and private institutions lost their jobs and are trying to learn handicrafts and vocational training. (IANS/JB)
