Dr. Jimenez Alternative Medicine Team Cannabinoids. Plants are medicine, and the more research conducted, the more information we have when it comes to medical options for various ailments, conditions, diseases, disorders, etc… Chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez investigates and brings insight into these developing medicines, how they can help patients, what they can do, and what they cannot do.
Most know about cannabinoids from the marijuana plant. It is the most recognized cannabinoid, aka tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the compound that causes feelings of euphoria.
Scientists identified cannabinoids only in cannabis. However, new research has found these same medicinal qualities in many plants, including black pepper, broccoli, carrots, clove, echinacea, and ginseng.
These vegetables or spices won’t get you high, but understanding how these different plants affect the human body can lead to vital health discoveries.
