If you can get beyond the stigma that “cannabis isn’t just for getting high anymore,” you’ll discover more of its amazing medicinal qualities. As you may already know, over heating your food destroys many of the natural nutritional and healing qualities found only in its raw form. Cannabis, a.k.a hemp, is no exception. Over heating cannabis destroys beneficial enzymes, nutrients and their cofactors. Over heating transforms its molecular composition and releases the intoxicating and hallucinatory THC molecule, giving you a pleasant high. Thank goodness smoking, cooking and vaporizing cannabis doesn’t eliminate all of the medicinal qualities. However, over heating does limit the “full medicinal spectrum” of those qualities.
On the other hand, “chemically mirroring” or synthesizing cannabis for the sole purpose of marketing artificial “patentable” versions for profit, has ended with adverse and even deadly effects, as with Big Pharma’s Marinol.
Marinol, also known as Dronabinol, a synthetic version of THC, is the primary suspect in at least 62 known deaths since 1984 and since Jan, 9, 2013, 446 people reported adverse effects and 17 have died. Cannabis, the “real thing,” still has zero deaths attributed to it after several millennia of medicinal use.
Rick Simpson has been providing people with instructions on how to make hemp oil medicines for about 9 years now. The results have been nothing short of amazing. The reason most people are kept in the dark about this is simply because if we all started growing cannabis to treat and cure our own health issues, Big Pharma would lose billions of drug dollars.
What really scares the drug industry is these same positive results are easily repeated by any health practitioner, layman or housewife. Hemp oil medications can cure malignant melanomas and more importantly, save lives. Used as a topical application, hemp oil salves or balms help treat or cure various skin conditions. When taken orally, hemp oil tends to “seek and destroy” cancer cells in the body. The only side effects from eating too much hemp oil are drowsiness, which some people may consider being a “side-benefit.” Unlike opiates and their derivatives, hemp oil is not addictive.
A high purity alcohol extract of pure hemp oil should be ingested orally to treat serious diseases and afflictions, plus cutting-edge research is showing how “juicing” raw female cannabis flowers and leaves, delivers the full spectrum of its nutritional and medical benefits, without the high.
Another benefit of using cannabis as medicine is its anti-aging properties; many people who use hemp oil claim it to be the fountain of youth. Safer than aspirin, hemp oil is in a class all by itself. Rick Simpson has found all forms of disease and conditions are treatable and often curable with the use of high grade hemp.
Hemp or cannabis medicine is for the healing of the masses and no one has the right to control its use. It seems unbelievable that we have any laws prohibiting people from curing their own diseases with safe, natural herbal remedies.
