Raphael Mechoulam is an Israeli professor for Medicinal Chemistry and Natural Products at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. While working on research at the Weizmann Institute of Science in 1964, Michoulam succeeded in the isolation, structure elucidation and total synthesis of delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the main active principle of cannabis.

This video discusses what THC does to the brain, it also touches on the 1992 discovery of Anandamide, also known as N-arachidonoylethanolamine or AEA, which is an endogenous cannabinoid neurotransmitter found in human organs. When the compound is released into the brain it affects memory, appetite and pain. It was isolated and its structure was first described in 1992.

Over the past few years, Professor Mechoulam, has become a great inspiration to activists, doctors, scientists and citizens worldwide for his dedication and continual striving to find cures to devastating human ailments, such as P.T.S.D. and chronic pain.

Buddy, an 86 year old man suffering from chronic neuropathy of the feet expresses the excruciating pain, ineffective narcotic medications with side-effects like constipation, and the realization that medical cannabis (marijuana) could help relieve his pain. His own doctor told him that cannabis would help, having certainly read Dr. Donald Abram's study, "Cannabis in Painful HIV-associated Sensory Neuropathy", published in February, 2007, that proved cannabis as effective for neuropathic pain as conventional, opiate-type medications.

This video features sections of Dr. Abrams presentation of his findings, at the 2006 Cannabis Therapeutics Conference, in Santa Barbara, CA, hosted by Patients Out of Time.

Dr. Abram's presentation, "Cannabis in Pain & Palliative Care", is viewable in its entirety at: http://www.blip.tv/file/2916638/
