How Cannabis Works to Treat Seizures, ADD and IBS

All mammals, including humans, incorporate ontologically the old reptilian brain (the midbrain), which is responsible for most of our primitive emotions and is important to our survival. When the midbrain is over-stimulated it takes over some of the control, making humans inclined to act a lot more like reptiles and a bit less like people.

The term “reptilian” refers to the primitive, instinctive brain function. These functions are shared by all reptiles and mammals, including humans, and provide the most powerful and oldest of our brain’s coping mechanisms, what is often described as the “fight or flight” response. The reptilian brain sees things in black and white and it causes us to act first and think later. While this can often cause trouble, without our reptilian brain functions we might not be alive.
