An Introduction to Dr. Bob's Revolutionary Interpretation of Life

Dr. Robert Melamede has a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from the City University of New York. Dr. Melamede is a recognized leader on the therapeutic uses of cannabis, and has authored numerous papers on a wide variety of subjects. Dr. Melamede retired as Chairman of the Biology Department at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs in 2005, where he taught and researched cannabinoids, cancer, and DNA repair.

Why Does Work?

Dr. Bob Melamede, Age 72
“Cannabis finally goes mainstream with CBD available just about everywhere from gas stations to hemp specialty shops. Why has it become so popular? The answer is simple, CBD benefits countless conditions by participating in the numerous biochemical processes of life.
 
To get an appropriate perspective, it’s useful to remember that all vertebrates, with humans presumptively being the most evolutionarily advanced member of the group, rely on the endocannabinoid system to homeostatically regulate every human body system (circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, nerves, muscular, reproductive, skeletal and skin). Most endocannabinoids, like the human brain, are mostly made from essential fatty acids.
Metabolism is what drives all living systems by maintaining the flowing energy that drives the complexity of life. Efficient carbohydrate metabolism drives creation (CB1). Cellular/organismic maintenance (repair, recycling and reconstruction is driven fat burning (CB2). The balance of these two metabolic subdivisions determines health and longevity.
 
The endocannabinoid system is the conductor of the life’s biochemical orchestra. CBD plays a powerful part in health’s music by straddling the biochemical subdivision that coordinates differentiated functions with their repair and maintenance. Cannabinoids are necessary nutrients for optimizing human health.”

Is there a simple way to look into the complexity of living entities that provides functional insights?

“The answer is yes. The most fundamental characteristic of living systems is that flowing energy organizes matter. The seemingly impossible, highly improbable molecular collaborations that characterize life are accomplished in a specific manner. A dynamic balance of opposing forces (homeostasis) occurs on many levels in space and time. 
 
The natural, creative flow of energy (Generalized Open-system Dynamics, GOD) builds the future. Evolution constantly “squeezes” adaptation out of flow dependent molecular collections (structures) that are the individuals composing a species. A living cell/organism must constantly respond to the constantly changing environment. Information and molecules are always flowing in and out of a cell. Flowing energy and mass are used to either build something or for repairs
 
Excessive input into a living system powers the growth phase of youth. The balance changes with maturation to adulthood, physical growth stops. Organizational flow must be maintained with learning and exercise. At this point it’s important to understand that carbohydrate metabolism typically drives the creative, differentiated processes of life while making a mess that needs to be kept in check. In contrast, burning fat turns on cellular recycling and repair. 
 
How does sub-cellular biochemistry turn into illnesses, or promote health? When catabolic carbohydrate and lipid flows are in balance, aging and illnesses are minimized by the homeostatic flow that reduces metabolically produced excess free radicals, the ultimate cause aging, illness and disease. In order for a flow dependent living system to respond to its environment, it must detect it. Only two things, energy and matter enter a system. 

The immune system monitors all mass that enters into the greater body system. The nervous system monitors all information that comes into a living organism. In vertebrates, the nervous system is very dependent on carbohydrate metabolism for providing efficient energy. This is regulated by the largest neurotransmitter system in the brain, CB1. The immune system is often characterized by CB2 expression. Learn more about my discoveries I call Evolutionism in the videos and articles below.”
