Excellent video on cannabis and cannabinoids with Michael Pollan.

This material is from Michael Pollan’s new DVD of his book, The Botany of Desire.  Pollan narrates how cannabis has flourished by making itself useful to humankind. The DVD provides an excellent, graphic review of THC and anandamide and the endocannabinoid system. It features legendary cannabis/cannabinoid researcher, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam.

  1. Thanks for posting this video! It was very informative. It’s fascinating that drugs people have demonized owe their history and possibly existence to the demand for them by ancient cultures which flourished thousands of years ago — which hints at their value. It’s also interesting that a chemical in the brain is almost identical to THC at a molecular level.
