DEA Asks FDA To Consider Rescheduling Marijuana From Schedule I Drug
Marijuana edibles burgeoning into an industry
Have to mention the anti tumor effect of THC and CBD's. My thread on it was lost in a forum crash. Researchers are ready for human trials. GW pharmacueticals giloma trials are underway apparently. It has been known since the 70's and is now snowballing around the world. Cannabis oil kills cancer in many cases. Shown in tissue cultures, animal tests in case studies in multiple labs all over the world. On the other side of the coin are hundreds maybe thousands of anecdotal reports of people curing themselves of supposed terminal illness, even stage four lung and brain cancer. Thousands of parents are also using it to save their children from epilepsy. I used it to treat my dog with cancer, yes it worked! The vets were amazed. If does not stop there though, there are hundredes of conditions it can treat.
It saves lives, I am looking to the day when I can produce quality oil legitimately in my country. I will be changing carreer, giving shamanic medicine to those in need. Finally the most medicinal plant on the Earth is getting the recognition it deserves. Who can argue with the parents that are saving their kids lives by breaking the law. I know for a fact that most cops don't. Yeah I think people are starting to wake up a bit.
John Oliver on the broken US prison system and the War on Drugs as a way to funnel profits to corporations that run prisons.
Ties into previously posted stuff that David Simon was talking about, regarding the Ouroboros of incarcerating people for ridiculous sentences for drug possession and the like in order to help feed the for-profit prison system.
The sugar in a c-section as medical treatment was worse than maggots in prison food, but both are pretty horrible.
The Drugs Problem
The Legal Cannabis Business: A Talk with Mike "Zappy" Zapolin
LS, Cannabis Oil is the same as Hemp Oil, correct?
Hey Ethan, been busy of late. Have begun studying chemistry officially! I have cannabinoids in my sites.
Strictly speaking no it's not the same. There is a rise in the use of hemp oil because it is rich in CBD's, not THC though. Lots of good applications still.
Strains are being grown rich in CBD and weak in THC like the now famous Charlotte's web strain. Hugely successful in treating epilepsy. Growers are infusing the CBD's back into the strains by crossing hemp somewhere in the lineage. The CBD's have been bred to a minimum in many strains over the years. Guys like CBD crew are producing new powerful medicine with CBD rich strains.
Part of the confusion probably has to do with Rick Simpson calling his oil hemp oil. No it is not hemp oil.
The recent advances show that a synergy between cannabanoids has the most healing power. The combination of THC and CBD's and even the terpinoids all contribute in different ways. The plant has hundreds of medicinal molecules you could say. And why it can treat such a wide range of conditions as it directly interfaces with the endo cannabinoid system.
Thanks LS! I guess I should have known they were different since I knew the buds (with THC) and hemp (no THC) came from different parts of the plant. It all sounds promising!
Good luck and have fun with the Chemistry! (Although I am a little disappointed you didn't choose physics, a much cooler major, hehe j/k!)

agreed... I'm not personally effected, but am really glad to see this happening. State power is the only hope.
