CBD-Rich Hemp Oil: Cannabis Medicine is Back

Buy Here on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2tt91s4

Prior to the outlawing of cannabis in 1937, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines, but cannabis has actually been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Although it has a long history, the recent discovery (1992) of the body’s widespread endocannabinoid system (ECS) has thrust cannabis back into the limelight again as a viable medicine.

In 2012 over 2.5 million prescriptions were written for medical marijuana in the United States. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis. However, while THC produces a “high” in the user, CBD does not. And now legal CBD-rich hemp oil is available over-the-counter in all 50 states, without a prescription.

It was discovered that the Hemp Family of plants (cannabis, marijuana) is loaded with cannabinoids that stimulate our ECS receptor sites. These sites are found in the brain, organs, glands, connective tissue and immune cells and plays regulatory roles in many physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The primary purpose of this system revolves around maintaining balance in the body.

Cannabinoids found in all varieties of cannabis work in harmony with the cannabinoids we naturally produce when our system is functioning properly. It is now coming to light that we may very well be “Endocannabinoid Deficient” and supplementing with Cannabidiol, known as CBD, may provide just what we’re missing to restore optimum health.

The health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) from natural hemp oil is this book’s primary focus. It explores the similarities, differences, uses and benefits of hemp, cannabis and medical marijuana along with the interplay of THC and CBD. Their 480 other components are also discussed, such as terpenoids, flavonoids, enzymes, vitamins, etc.

Make no mistake about it, the endocannabinoid system, although newly discovered, is just as important as any other bodily system, like the muscular, cardiac, circulatory or digestive system. The ECS requires its own specialized medicine as found in the Hemp Family of plants, which is also known as cannabis, and which includes all strains of marijuana.

Here is a list of conditions known and/or being researched that may be helped by cannabinoid therapeutics and supplementation:

Acne ADD/ADHD Addiction AIDS ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Alzheimer’s Anorexia Antibiotic Resistance Anxiety Atherosclerosis Arthritis Asthma Autism Bipolar Cancer Colitis/Crohn’s Depression Diabetes Endocrine Disorders Epilepsy/Seizure Fibromyalgia Glaucoma Heart Disease Huntington’s Inflammation Irritable Bowel Kidney Disease Liver Disease Metabolic Syndrome Migraine Mood Disorders Motion Sickness Multiple Sclerosis Nausea Neurodegeneration Neuropathic Pain Obesity OCD Osteoporosis Parkinson’s Prion/Mad Cow Disease PTSD Rheumatism Schizophrenia Sickle Cell Anemia Skin Conditions Sleep Disorders Spinal Cord Injury Stress Stroke/TBI The short story?

You have an Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS). It helps regulate many bodily systems. Mother’s milk has endo-cannabinoids and you produce your own, or not. You could be suffering from clinical Endo-Cannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome (CEDS). The Hemp family of plants is the only other source of cannabinoids. One cannabinoid, CBD, just may be the greatest dietary supplement of our lifetime.

10% of the proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to the American Cannabis Nurses Association in an effort to bring together nurses, to share, integrate and one day certify nurses in the science of endocannabinoid therapeutics in nursing practice.

Treating Cancer with Cannabis: The Science « Heavens 2 Betsey

While searching for information on the palliative affects of cannabis for chemotherapy patients, I came across an article describing a Cancer study from Spain which boasted remarkable results treating patients with cannabis. The results of the study showed reduction in tumor size and even complete cellular death in the tumors of patients who ingested concentrated THC. The claim sounds extraordinary but with a little research I was surprised by the amount of information I found supporting the treatment of cancer with concentrated cannabis.

The findings are clear: application of cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD) has the potential to slow the growth of Cancer cells, in many cases causing a reduction and even death in those tumor cells without harming the surrounding healthy tissue.

Cannabis doesn’t kill Cancer in the same way as chemotherapy treatment. With chemo everything dies. They flush the body with whichever brand of poison they’ve deemed the most effective, and the chemo attacks the cells in the body indiscriminately, cancerous and healthy alike. The patient’s job is simply to survive and outlive the cancer. There is no arguing that chemotherapy has shown to effectively kill cancer. But I think there is also little denying that it can greatly damage the body during the course of the treatment. Conversely, cannabis is not lethal and does not harm healthy cells.

There may be an initial period of adjustment during which patients can experience the side effects of excessive cannabis toxicity while building their tolerance to the oil, however once tolerance is achieved cannabis treatment comes with a long list of beneficial side effects such as lowered blood pressure, less depression and anxiety, better quality of sleep, and more.

With Cannabis treatment, patients ingest regular doses of highly concentrated oil (see blog by H2B President on Treating Cancer with Cannabis). Some choose to use it in conjunction with their current chemotherapy treatments, while others have turned to cannabis oil alone (usually coupled with a balanced diet and natural supplements). I won’t sit here and say that beyond a doubt Cannabis is the answer and cures all cancers. Truth is every cancer is different just like every person is different; and not all cancers (or people for that matter), react the same to treatment. Also depending on where the cancer is in relation to the cannabinoid receptors, the tumors might react to different types of cannabinoids (see our blog on cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system).

It is important to note the patients coming forward with personal testimony showing their remarkable results: cancers declared inoperable, untreatable, or which didn’t react positively to conventional therapies showing successful treatment using cannabis oil. A growing number of cancer patients are turning to this therapy and the stories are finally beginning to emerge, though because of the varying legality and stigma surrounding this treatment, patients are hesitant to come forward and talk about their experiences. My grandmother, who found success using cannabis oil for her stage 4 breast cancer, has been met with doubt and criticism for her choice and for talking about it. It upsets me to think that though she found positive results, she can’t freely share this information with others.

I think the point here is if it is possible, if this might help someone, if it might give a cancer patient and their family their lives back, isn’t it important for it to be made known that it IS an option? With all the different types of chemotherapy doctors are willing to try out on patients, this nontoxic solution should also be available. Patients like my grandmother shouldn’t be afraid (or unable due to legal reasons) to seek out this medicine and they shouldn’t be met with criticism for sharing the success of their treatment with other cancer patients, family, and friends. We should all be sharing this information. The government needs to be allowing human clinical trials and pushing for more studies to be done. If we are trying to spread awareness and asking for more research to fight this terrible devastating disease, ISN’T IT ABOUT TIME WE TALK ABOUT CANNABIS?

I have read a lot of research on cannabinoids and their potential as an effective Cancer treatment, and I encourage you to do the same. To get you started I am including links to the information I found; please read for yourself. There is a lot of out information out there. Don’t ignore this any longer. Spread awareness. Cannabis has the ability to fight Cancer. If you or someone you know has been touched by Cancer, now is the time to Share this information with them, before it is too late to try.

FDA APPROVES MARIJUANA BASED DRUG

The U.S.  Food and Drug Administration has approved clinical trials of a cannabis-based drug and its effects on epilepsy.  The treatment, Epidiolex, is 98 percent purified cannabidiol ( CBD ) made by GW Pharmaceuticals based out of the U.K.

There are around 60 known chemicals contained in cannabis called cannabinoids.  Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is the main component responsible for the drug’s psychoactive nature.  CBD, however, is the second most abundant cannabinoid in the cannabis and provides medicinal benefits without the “high.” Epidiolex will come in a viscous liquid form to be dispensed from syringes.  A 25 milligram per meter or 100 milligram per meter will be the two strengths made available to those in the trials.

The FDA has approved of intermediate-sized clinical trials sponsored by two doctors.  Dr.  Orrin Devinsky, a professor in the Department of Neurology, Neuroscience and Psychiatry in the New York University School of Medicine and director of the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, and Dr.  Roberta Cilio, a pediatric neurologist at the University of California, San Francisco, are set to follow 25 patients using Epidiolex as treatment for pediatric epilepsy.

On Oct.  4, at the NYU Langone Medical Center, Devinsky led a conference entitled, “Cannabidiols: Potential Use in Epilepsy & Other Neurological Disorders.” During the affair, Devinsky and Cilio led a presentation on planned trials on CBD in children with treatment resistant epilepsy.

The D.C.  – based Marijuana Policy Project’s Communications Director Mason Tvert responded to the news of the approved trials.  “We’ve long known that marijuana has a variety of medical benefits,” Tvert said.  Tvert added that the federal government clearly recognizes marijuana’s medicinal benefits and it’s a shame they hindered most research of it.

Maryland’s new marijuana law came into effect on Oct.  1, but its miniscule scope won’t have much effect.  It deals with a small number of patients that would enroll in state-approved clinical studies.  However, with no hospitals signed up to hold these studies, no visible changes are set to occur in the near future.

Now the country will wait and see if CBD can live up to the hype, and if the epileptic patients can find any relief from their disease.

CBD Donations needed for epileptic Kids, Halent Labs


Cannacea Incorporated has sent you a message.

Date: 3/02/2013

Subject: Urgent need – please read

I am sending this plea out to all of my contacts…. If you are not a provider, please accept my appology in advance, and excuse the intrusion… as it is difficult to send them out individually, and this is a serious situation.

After reading below, If you are willing to help in anyway, please contact me immediately! We work closely with Halent Labs, and you may either donate through us, or we will put you in contact with them directly. This is VERY REAL, AND VERY SERIOUS.

Other strains that are 4% or higher in CBD, beside the C6 (cannatonic) are:
OmritaRX3, Jamaican Lion, Harlequin P1, Sour Tsunami P2, Misty, Maz’s Cheese, Juanita La Lagimosa, & Good Medicine. If you have a strain you feel is CBD rich, and you are willing to donate, a 1gram flower sample can be tested.

From: Halent Labs

Urgent Plea…
Folks, for those that know me, I’ve never done what I’m about to do, which is ask the entire Cannabis Community for help… even if going ‘public’ brings more legal risk to Halent.

Yes, we’re the ones helping young Ben (Weed Country/Discovery Channel) with a successful CBD treatment for his Epilepsy… but what we are doing ISN’T sustainable… we’re out of resources, money, supplies and we have a lot of very sick …children with Epilepsy, like Ben, that could die without treatment.

Just to start with, IF you have Cannatonic-C6 that you can somehow spare, we need it… and yes, for those lucky enough to have C6, I honestly, sincerely understand what I am asking you to do… it wasn’t easy. With Cannatonic-C6, in the very quick short term, a treatment (I’ll admit not a prefect solution) can get close to the best/safest treatment available… until more, hire purity CBD remedies can be prepared (which is a long, expensive process).

IF you have other relatively pure forms of CBD that you can part with, we can find a way to clean it up, remove the THC and other undesirables… this will take longer and is why the C6 is the best highly short term options.

These kids don’t get to play like other kids, because if they were climbing a ladder to a tree fort and had a seizure, it could be deadly… same is true for riding a bike and swimming. Some of these children have to be fed with a feeding tube, and don’t get to enjoy eating candy or a red ripe apple. The biggest fear of every parent is that each and every time their child has a seizure, they might stop breathing and not start again. This medicinal remedy, High in CBD with very low in THC allows these children to be children, and allows their parent to be able to sleep at night without terrible fear for their children. It’s a gift of love, but more importantly, it’s a genuine life saver.

If there is anything you think you may be able to contribute, please talk to us. We’re all very tired, and running out of options and resources, which is a heartbreak after finally discovering we really can beat this terrible affliction. We now KNOW we can control this, beyond doubt, and do it safely.

I’m going to also ask something I virtually never ask… please repost this.

Bless,
Reverend Dr. Kymron
