Alaska Cannabis Exchange was founded on the principles of the medicinal and therapeutic effects that are known to exist in cannabis. We at ACE believe in the value of whole plant benefits maintaining a perfect balance of cannabinoids to create the best products available on the market and in turn creating the tools necessary to achieve homeostasis through the “entourage effect.”
We believe in utilizing the whole plant benefits by maintaining the plant’s perfect balance of cannabinoids to achieve homeostasis that may stop numerous illnesses before they start.
All mammals have an endocannabinoid system which has two groups of receptors known as CB1 and CB2. These receptors are triggered by phyto-cannabinoids that are only found in the cannabis plant. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol attaches to the CB1 receptor and CBN, or cannabinol, attaches to the CB2 receptors. The addition of phyto-cannabinoids will help regulate the body and its functions to help achieve homeostasis. Once homeostasis is achieved the human body will be less susceptible to disease. Our products contain trace amounts of these cannabinoids delivering micro doses of these and other cannabinoids as well as terpenes.
ACE was established because we saw the potential medical benefits of cannabis (both marijuana and hemp). Our story is much like many of the stories you’ve likely heard before.
Our co-founder has a niece that was diagnosed with a very rare genetic disorder that caused her to have intractable epilepsy and suffer dozens of seizures a day. After numerous pharmaceutical medications that left her listless and lethargic it was time to take matters into our own hands as the expensive treatments had very little if any positive effects on her.
After much research we discovered that CBD or cannabidiol may play a larger than life role in successfully treating her neurological disorder. Beginning the CBD protocol proved successful results within days of starting the treatment and results have been nothing but positive from there forward.
