There is SO much information coming to light recently (thank you celestial for fighting the global shadow and exposing these long concealed truths!) regarding the benefits of marijuana, hemp, hemp seed oil, cannabis oil, cannabinoids, etc. that I am going to start a list below of great articles, videos and research being done in the field.
I wish that I had been privy to this information some years ago when my own family faced yet another bout of cancer. MSD (mainstream doctors) use every scare tactic in the book to scare the living shit out of their patients and bully them into procedures that are unnecessary, invasive, detrimental and in many cases lead to the debilitation of the individual. Take your health into your own hands and investigate the insane amount of options available to you in 2013.
Cast away those long held FALSE preconceived notions you have about pot and hemp – they are not only incorrect, they are damaging to both the planet and our well being. Open your mind to the possibilities of plant healing and stop buying into the Nixon/Reagan/Bush/Clinton/Obama hysteria of the “War on Drugs”, or rather the “War for Whatever we Decide is Illegal so we can then build up our private prison sector and eliminate the street drug dealing business to make way for our major drug trafficking racket” – or whatever you want to call it! ;)
As always, Be Safe!
NOTE – Vocabulary in Below Articles:
Hemp / Industrial Hemp: [from Wikipedia] A commonly used term for varieties of the Cannabis plant and its products, which include fiber, oil, and seed. In many countries regulatory limits for concentrations of psychoactive drug compounds (THC) in hemp encourage the use of strains of the plant which are bred for low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content or otherwise have the THC removed. Hemp is refined into products like hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, and fuel. Also – a “male” marijuana plant.
Cannabis: [from Wikipedia] a genus of flowering plants that includes three putative varieties, Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica,and Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis has long been used for fibre (hemp), for seed and seed oils, for medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug. Industrial hemp products are made from Cannabis plants selected to produce an abundance of fiber.
Phytoremediation: [from Wikipedia] describes the treatment of environmental problems (bioremediation) through the use of plants that mitigate the environmental problem without the need to excavate the contaminant material and dispose of it elsewhere. Phytoremediation consists of mitigating pollutant concentrations in contaminated soils, water, or air, with plants able to contain, degrade, or eliminate metals, pesticides, solvents, explosives, crude oil and its derivatives, and various other contaminants from the media that contain them.
Cannabinoids: [from Wikipedia] A class of diverse chemical compounds that activate cannabinoid receptors on cells that repress neurotransmitter release in the brain. These receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids (produced naturally in the body by humans and animals), the phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis and some other plants), and synthetic cannabinoids (produced chemically by humans). The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid ∆9–tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound of cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major constituent of the plant, representing up to 40% in its extracts. There are at least 85 different cannabinoids isolated from cannabis, exhibiting varied effects.
Tetrahydrocannabinol: [from Wikipedia] The principal psychoactive constituent (or cannabinoid) of the cannabis plant.
