Cannabis Reduces Prescription Drug Use

From 2000 to 2015, half a million people died from prescription drug overdoses. Stories continue to roll in daily about the lives claimed by prescription and non-prescription drug overdoses.  Cannabis is not only excluded from the overdose drug list, but it reduces the use of dangerous prescription drugs. Raw cannabis is considered by many experts as a dietary essential. As a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, some classify it as one of the most important plants on earth. The biggest benefits from the plant may come not by smoking it, but rather by consuming it in its raw and natural form. “If cannabis were discovered in an Amazon rainforests today, people would be clambering to make as much use as they could out of the potential benefits of the plant,” said Donald L.… Read More

Is cannabis the cure-all for migraines? Scientists think so

New research further validates the efficacy of cannabis in the alleviation of migraine symptoms. Researchers have found that a combination of tetrahydrocannabinol-cannabidiol (THC-CBD) was effective in reducing the severity and number of cluster headaches and migraines compared to prescription medicine. In fact, the THC-CBD treatment was able to reduce acute pain brought on by migraines by 43.5 percent. A lecturer in mental health at the University of York, Ian Hamilton, says on the DailyMail.co.uk, “This research suggests that compounds found in cannabis are as effective as amitriptyline, a traditional prescription medication used to treat acute painful headaches. This provides promise for people who experience adverse effects from prescription medication. The analgesic properties of cannabis have been known for some time so this research adds to existing evidence of the potential that cannabis… Read More

Autistic Boy Learns to Speak Again After 2 Days of Cannabis Oil Treatment

At just ten months old Kalel Santiago experienced a rare type of cancer known as neuroblastoma.  He underwent chemotherapy, radiation, and had several surgeries over a two year period. He was able to beat cancer but later they found he had a very strong case of autism. While he was in the hospital he did not speak at all and was acting a bit off but it was not until he was three years old that they were able to actually have him diagnosed. The family tried several different treatment options for his autism and did find some success with a nearby school but their son still would not speak. The family soon became aware of hemp oil high in cannabidiol (CBD) and how it had been helping others like Kalel. They… Read More

Healing with Medical Marijuana

Marijuana has gone mainstream, as evidenced by the spread of the use of marijuana as a medicine, and now outright legalization in some places is turning peoples’ heads and hearts to a vision where marijuana is perceived as good. Now available in print, I am very happy to announce the New York publication of my book Healing with Medical Marijuana, now available on Amazon. In it one can find total support for the use of marijuana—even for rest and relaxation. Researchers are still struggling to understand how it impacts the body but anyone can use marijuana and see for themselves how it affects their pain and disease conditions. In a new 400-page analysis of the current state of scientific knowledge on the health risks and benefits of marijuana, medical scientists concluded that… Read More

Marijuana lowers baby boomer death rates, while alcohol causes massive increase

(NaturalNews) The baby boomer generation is literally drinking itself to death at a time when medical marijuana should be – and could be – saving their lives. As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, boomers born in the post-World War II period between 1946 and 1964 are distinct from previous generations because of their far great indulgence in hedonistic, aesthetic lifestyles, and this is particularly evident in their drinking habits. Some believe that boomers drink at greater volumes than previous generations because during their formative years advertising for alcohol and tobacco was much more widespread. It could also be due to the fact that boomers have it much better than their parents, for the most part. Now aged between 51 and 70, boomers’ drinking habits are leading many to a premature grave.… Read More

Your Definitive Answer to Cannabis Use During Pregnancy

A recent study was released on the relationship between cannabis use and pregnancy, drawing a data pool from the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand. by Anthony Tyler Unfortunately, for those hoping to gain a deeper, unbiased insight into this plant’s historical use as a pregnancy-symptom treatment, this “scientific” study is the wrong place. The researchers conducting the study went on record with statements like: “Anecdotally, we know that some women are using marijuana to reduce nausea in pregnancy, even though there is no medical evidence to support this. Our study was unable to determine whether there is a ‘safe’ time prior to 20 weeks’ gestation to give up marijuana. Therefore, we recommend total abstinence from marijuana during pregnancy.” This is such a convoluted, factually untrue statement that it brings into question the… Read More

Watch Marijuana Miraculously Destroy Cancer Cells

Did you know that studies showed the effectiveness of cannabis at killing cancer cells as long ago as 1974? In 1974, a study from The Washington Post said that THC effectively “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36%.” The information was suppressed and people were incarcerated for up to decades for using or selling the harmless, absolutely miraculous medicine from 1974 to 1998 (and further on, as you know). In 1998, another study came out from Madrid’s Complutense University that indicated THC can cause cancer cells to die, and unlike chemotherapy the THC kills nothing but the cancer cells, leaving the brain of course completely unharmed. The video below shows some direct footage of the THC molecule binding to cells and slaying the… Read More

Proof Marijuana Is The Most Medicinal Plant On Earth

More than a dozen U.S. states have now completely decriminalized the act of possessing marijuana and both Colorado and Washington have made it legal to possess, sell, transport and cultivate the plant. In a historic and significant moment in American history, last November, Colorado became the first US state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. The impact of the decision could soon ripple across the entire country with vast opportunities to educate millions on the top health benefits of marijuana. by Marco Torres, PreventDisease With the passage of I-502 in the 2012 Washington State election, marijuana also became legal in Washington–not just for medical use, but also for recreational use–and Alaska, California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, and Vermont have all decriminalized marijuana. Consumption and sale of… Read More

Recent Studies Find Cannabis Highly Effective Against Depression, PTSD

Recent scientific studies regarding the use of cannabis (marijuana) and its healing powers are further disproving the government’s biased and inaccurate stance against its medical use. The government refers to marijuana as a “gateway” drug to harder substances and schedules it along side them even though it has proven to be safer than alcohol. Taking these claims into consideration, scientists across the country have taken it upon themselves to research the chemical makeup of marijuana and prove to the public the benefits that it holds. Through the research of endocannabinoids, a stress-regulating chemical found in the brain that is also found in marijuana, scientists are producing evidence to prove that marijuana usage could benefit those who suffer from depression. Chronic depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in America with… Read More

4 Surprising Health Benefits of Juicing Raw Marijuana

by rawforbeauty Did you know that marijuana is a vegetable? Yup, it’s true. The marijuana plant’s leaves and buds are actually loaded with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer compounds. These compounds are known as cannabidiols (CBD) and they make marijuana, cannabis, or whatever you want to call it, a superfood. Don’t Get Dazed And Confused But when heated, all of that goodness evaporates — it goes up in smoke and is blown away. Instead, be blown away by the health benefits of juicing the raw marijuana plant. When heated the psychoactive compound — tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — is released from the plant. Most people don’t want medicine to get “high” though. Our bodies were made to receive cannabidiols and the plant does not need to be heated to get these healing properties. We have… Read More
