“A review paper about the harmful (even lethal) risks that can be associated w/ man-made, synthetic cannabinoids. One of the quietest benefits of a healthy Medical Cannabis industry is the assurance, comfort, & safety of supervised, regulated products.
It is worth drawing special attention to the fact that, in this review study, the majority of the illness or death that they report, as a result of synthetic cannabinoids… happened by “accident” or “unknown’.”

CBD is not just for the unwell, however. There is a growing body of scientific research that shows CBD has the power to reduce levels of anxiety and stress, lower inflammation, relax the body and mind, and subtly lift the mood. Being fairly healthy myself, I decided to use CBD to see if it would help me handle everyday stress and anxiety. I used this 8% CBD oil from Love Hemp (peppermint was my favorite flavor).
After only a matter of days of taking a few drops of 10% CBD oil every morning and evening, I began to notice that, indeed, my stress levels were reduced, my social anxiety was all but gone, and negative thought patterns were easier to stem. Thanks to my prior immersion into the research on CBD, these results were somewhat expected – although I was surprised at just how quickly and effectively CBD worked. However, there were also a number of effects from taking CBD oil daily that I had no idea would occur.
What follows are ten profound and unexpected effects I observed during one year of taking CBD oil daily.
1. I recovered much quicker after workouts Continue reading

Marijuana movers and shakers are making tremendous gains towards stabilizing an industry that has been on the brink for close to a decade. In fact, 2018 may very well go down in history as the year cannabis come to age across the nation.

Introduction: The roots of the cannabis plant have a long history of medical use stretching back millennia. However, the therapeutic potential of cannabis roots has been largely ignored in modern times.
Discussion: In the first century, Pliny the Elder described in Natural Histories that a decoction of the root in water could be used to relieve stiffness in the joints, gout, and related conditions. By the 17th century, various herbalists were recommending cannabis root to treat inflammation, joint pain, gout, and other conditions. There has been a subsequent paucity of research in this area, with only a few studies examining the composition of cannabis root and its medical potential. Active compounds identified and measured in cannabis roots include triterpenoids, friedelin (12.8 mg/kg) and epifriedelanol (21.3 mg/kg); alkaloids, cannabisativine (2.5 mg/kg) and anhydrocannabisativine (0.3 mg/kg); carvone and dihydrocarvone; N-(p-hydroxy-β-phenylethyl)-p-hydroxy-trans-cinnamamide (1.6 mg/kg); various sterols such as sitosterol (1.5%), campesterol (0.78%), and stigmasterol (0.56%); and other minor compounds, including choline. Of note, cannabis roots are not a significant source of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol, or other known phytocannabinoids.
Conclusion: The current available data on the pharmacology of cannabis root components provide significant support to the historical and ethnobotanical claims of clinical efficacy. Certainly, this suggests the need for reexamination of whole root preparations on inflammatory and malignant conditions employing modern scientific techniques.

This was a huge win for cannabis treatments and this needs to go viral! The establishment wants to bring us back to 1980. – “Don’t Speak” on YouTube
Italian farmers are in crisis as low prices of wheat, desiccated land and big companies importing grain take their toll. But some have found a solution: growing cannabis.
[Editor’s note: crop desiccation is the use of Monsanto’s cancer-causing Roundup to kill the entire plant just prior to harvest in order to dry the grain faster and more evenly. Among other unsavory effects, the practice destroys the soil. See more:

Hemp cultivation has been legal in Italy since 2016, and over the last few years the amount of land dedicated to the plant has increased from 400 hectares (1,000 acres) in 2013 to 4,000 hectares today.
The law – which allows cultivation for non-pharmaceutical use of plants with up to 0.2% of the psychoactive compound THC – was introduced with the intention of increasing the development of industrial hemp production. Italians have taken advantage of the legal change to produce not only hemp ricotta and environmentally friendly bricks, but also hemp pasta and biscuits.
