Eating raw cannabis as medicine, dietary essential: new research

This is a must-watch video featuring some of the top researchers on the healing effects of Cannabis (Marijuana) in it’s raw form, eaten or juiced.  A few quotations:

  • Cannabis is a dietary essential that helps all cell types function more effectively.
  • Is a medicine: anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, probably has some direct activity against cancerous cells.
  • This plant can do phenomenal things, but not if [you aren’t taking a high enough dose].
  • Cannabis is the most important vegetable in the world.

Dianne Feinstein Reefer Madness

Dianne Feinstein's Reefer Madness (graphic by twolf1)

 

Last night the United States Senate voted to double the penalties for the nation’s newest existential threat: brownies made with marijuana!

The Senate unanimously passed Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)’s “Saving Kids from Dangerous Drugs Act of 2009″ (S. 258) that targets pot brownies and other marijuana edibles preferred by some medical marijuana patients. The bill next moves to the House; if it passes that chamber, anyone making pot brownies or similar products could be subject to double the fines and jail time for regular marijuana.

This bill’s passage marks a step backwards for Congress, which this week also passed the Fair Sentencing Act that reduced the sentencing disparities between cocaine and crack from 100:1 to 18:1. Now we have a new disparity: pot brownies and other marijuana edibles are now treated as something twice as bad as just distributing marijuana.

How I use Medical Cannabis (a testimonial)

A friend of this blog recently submitted a raw food-inspired fudge recipe from our “tests kitchen” near Santa Fe (which we’ll be posting soon). There were some notes included with the recipe regarding the healing effects of all the different ingredients, and we asked her to elaborate.  Although her testimony is pretty unbelievable, it’s quite easy for me to believe as I have experienced these same profound healing effects from Cannabis ~

“i have fibromyalgia symptoms, supposedly comes from my muscles never turning off – cannabis gets right into the very cells and calms them down – the spasms stop and the knotting of the muscles (you can see and feel it) stops.

i have ptsd symptoms, meaning nightmares, hyper arousal, cant sleep, fear all the time, eating is sporadic cause i cant digest food – cannabis gives me an appetite and i can actually eat without a stomach ache, helps me sleep, calms my mind so not on hyper arousal and no fear, and lessens the nightmares.

i have had to take an overabundance of vitamin c because of a toxic liver situation, which affected my intestines – Cannabis stopped the symptoms in my intestines.

I have a migraine today and cannabis took a lot of the pain off.

Now all this happens when i am not high – as i am taking only an amount to calm my symptoms, digesting it [via edibles].”
