In this special bonus episode, here’s a lecture that Lex gave at the UK Psychedelic Society explaining the biochemistry of cannabis through the metaphor of Moby-Dick. The human brain is an ocean. The endocannabinoids are whales. The phytocannabinoids are elephants. Neurons are gigantic & complex underwater cities. And anandamide is our Great White Whale!

Listen today to hear how the endocannabinoid system regulates neurogenesis, synaptic transmission, the mitochondria, genetic transcription & more.
