Indica Vs Sativa

Indica Vs Sativa The Difference Between the Two Cannabis Plants

We sometimes receive calls that will ask about what type of weed should they order?  Customers want to know what the pros and cons are with marijuana Indica Vs Sativa. The answer would be depending of what kind of effect you want to experience when you smoke weed. We usually have a variety of Sativas and Indicas available on our web site. So you will ask, what is Sativa and Indica?

Today’s article will let us distinguish the difference between an indica and sativa type of weed.

To start, indica and sativa are the two major types of cannabis plants. When the two types are mixed, a “hybrid” type is formed and each types has different effects on body and mind.

LOOK and TASTE

Indica typically grow shot and wide while Sativa grow tall and thin. Indica plants are better grown indoor because they grow short and Sativa are better grown outdoor because it can get as high as 25 ft. in height. Indica’s flowering time is shorter, about 8-12 weeks while sativa’s will take about 10-16 weeks to grow.

indica vs sativa

Indicas have fat fan leaves, where each leaf segment nearly touches each other or even overlaps a little. Sativa leaves look more like thin little fingers.

In terms of taste, Indicas are sweet and fruity while sativas are earthy and piny.

Buds:

The dried buds are are a little bit more difficult to differentiate because they might look like hybrids but once you know the basic features of each type, in a way, you can make an educated guess as to whether or not your strain is indica or sativa dominant.

Sativa’s buds are usually long, less dense, wispy bud or fluffy, often with red or orange coloring and have a sweeter or lighter aroma.

Indica’s buds are short, heavy, compact and dense, often purple coloring and have thick pungent aroma.

 

GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN

Most indica strains originated from the Hindu Kush region of the Middle East like Turkey, Morocco and Afghanistan while most sativa strains originated from those countries near the equator like Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

It makes sense when you want to distinguish each strain when it comes to the name of the weed. Indicas usually have Kush at the end while sativas have Haze.

 

EFFECTS

Indica:

  1. Relieves body pain.
  2. Relaxes muscles.
  3. Alleviates spasms and seizures.
  4. Good for headaches and migraines.
  5. Manages anxiety or stress.

You will feel relaxed and tired that you would want to go to bed and sleep when you take indica strains that is why it is best to smoke this at night or later in the evening or at anytime you wish to sleep.

 

Sativa:

  1. Feeling at ease.
  2. Up-lifting and cerebral thought.
  3. Stimulates and energizes.
  4. Increases focus and creativity.
  5. Fights depression.

You will feel cerebral high when smoking sativa strains that makes this a good choice to smoke at daytime. You will feel more energetic and creative that is why this strain is more preferred by artists.

 

Next time you place an order, you now have an overview of what each type of strain you want. So goo ahead, what are you waiting for? Subscribe now and make a quick pick!!!

Recreational Marijuana

Last week in Toronto multiple raids took place, confiscating large amounts of recreational marijuana and edibles. The cannabis shops that were involved were claimed to be selling for recreational use.

This raid resulted in 71 criminal charges, and 90 people were arrested.

Police Chief Mark Saunders said that these shops were a general  health concern by not having the needed information in regards to thc content, or where the marijuana and products came from.

There are 18 known dispensaries that are legally working under the health Canada act and will remain to be open for operation.

recreational marijuana protesterMr and Mrs emery are fighting for recreational marijuana use and are fighting for legalization.  Jodie posted on social media today about the queen street raid last week. Jodie and her husband mark Emery are protesting and are still providing cannabis for recreational use for users above the age of 19.

Cannabis Culture was one of the shops that was involved in the raid last week. They have decided to continue operating their dispensary and they will not give up on providing recreational users with the medication they need.

I can hardly wait for legalization to take place.! To know that people are getting criminal charges and being arrested over marijuana is outrages. I am very appreciative to those that are speaking up and fighting for the legalization. without people standing there ground and continuing to do the right thing  by providing marijuana to the sick and healthy our rights would not be herd.

with legalization just around the corner Mr and Mrs Emery are “refusing to be bullied ” by law enforcement.

Toronto Dispensary Raid “Project Claudia”

Toronto Dispensary Raid

 

 

Thursday May 26th in Toronto Dispensary Raids took place in Kensington Market and on the Danforth. With warrants on locations, police officers forcefully gained access, confiscating  269 kilograms of dry marijuana, as well as other THC products. police charged 186 people as well as making 90 arrests.  Complaints had been made that these shops were causing a “broad impact ” on the neighboring area close to location. The target was on dispensaries that were claimed to have been distributing marijuana products that did not comply with the  marijuana-for-medical-use regulations.

While some bystanders made commits indicating that this was a good thing to have happen, others were not happy to have witnessed the Toronto raid take place.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion in regards to this situation. Whether you agree or not, personally i dont think it was necessary to make a scene by smashing shop windows.  For those that used these shops to get their medication from, they are now forced to go else where. Having these shops open to the public allowed marijuana users to get their THC from a safe and reliable source. Having a place to be able to get your medication from is crucial for many people, not just marijuana users.

In these kind of scenarios its been voiced by citizens that this is a waste of authorities’ time. That they’re not putting their resources to any good. Some people believe that there are more serious things happening in Toronto that should be addressed before taking action the way the have . Actions like these have left some people with disappointment.

Before the Dispensary raid to place, Notices were given earlier on this month to 78 property owners out of the 83 known medical marijuana dispensaries. Contravening the city’s zoning bylaw, these dispensaries were informed in the notice.

If it wasn’t for events like 420 protests or people gathering to voice  their preference towards marijuana,  we wouldn’t have legalization. This is going to be a long going process to have legalization, as well as a costly matter. This is worth speaking up, and fighting for!

I have a strong opinion towards marijuana, and the good it brings to people. It has so many things to offer and not just smoking and getting high, the marijuana can bring so much more to the table!

Weed can be very, very destructive, to young minds!

Weed is very bad for teens.

The more weed that teens consume at a younger age, the more problems they tend to have later in life. Adolescence is a sensitive time for brain development, if a teen introduces use of marijuana at that point in their life, it could very well have serious consequences for their ability to problem solve, for their memory and for critical thinking in general and those consequences are permanent, and irreversible.. Teenagers who smoke weed damage their brains for LIFE and may be more likely to develop such mental illness’s such as schizophrenia!

Why? Because the brain is still forming during teenage and young-adult years. The tissue itself is still developing connections between brain regions and producing the cells that process information. Neurodevelopment is particularly active during childhood and adolescence. Regular use of weed during that time has been linked to permanent problems with memory, learning, perception, impulse control, and more. It is true that a very clear relationship between teenage pot use and decreased cognitive function and mental health is demonstrated across the scientific community. Researchers say that marijuana is particularly dangerous for a group of teens who have a genetic susceptibility to the mental health disorder schizophrenia – and it could be the trigger for it.

What Kind of Research Has Been Done? Lots.

http://schizophreniabulletin.oxfordjournals.org/search?fulltext=Cannabis-Related+Working+Memory+Deficits+and+Associated+Subcortical+Morphological+Differences+in+Healthy+Individuals+and+Schizophrenia+Subjects&submit=yes&x=16&y=8

The study in the link above, which appeared in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, sought to distinguish the effects of daily marijuana use on the adolescent brain from the effects of schizophrenia on the deep regions of the brain that are necessary for working memory. Schizophrenia is a very disruptive illness on working memory, and a kid using weed regularly, produced many similar effects on the brain to schizophrenia. Researchers found that teens who smoked a lot of weed had abnormal changes in their brain structures related to working memory — a predictor of weak academic performance and impaired everyday functioning — and that they did poorly on memory-related tasks. The scientists noted that these effects were still apparent two years after their subjects had stopped using marijuana.

While the study focused on heavy marijuana users — specifically, those who indulged daily for about three years — one of its most crucial findings related not to the amount of weed an adolescent smoked, but when he or she started: The earlier the drug was taken up, the worse the effects on the brain.

Marijuana is the ideal compound to screw up everything for a kid, If they are into athletics, a chess player, on the debating team or an artist, you need working memory, and marijuana hurts the brain circuitry in that area if it is still developing, permanently.

Researchers at Duke University concluded a study a couple of years ago of more than 1,000 people from the time they were born until they reached the age of 38. Studies were performed periodically throughout their lives, and were carefully controlled to ensure test subjects did not have any other drug or alcohol addictions or psychological disorders, and were not high at the time of the test. They found that those who used pot more than once weekly before age 18 displayed more severely impaired intelligence, slower reaction times, shorter attention spans, and poorer listening skills than those who began using marijuana after age 18. https://today.duke.edu/2012/08/potiq

The Lancet Psychiatry‘ reported the following statistics on teens who smoked marijuana daily …
60% less likely to complete high school than those who never use.
60% less likely to graduate college.
18 times more likely to become dependent on marijuana.
8 times more likely to use other hard illegal drugs in the future.
7 times more likely to attempt suicide.
http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpsy/article/PIIS2215-0366%2814%2970307-4/abstract

It’s not just daily use. According to the researchers behind the study, teens who used cannabis just monthly were also at risk of underachievement.

According to a recent study at the University of Maryland Medical Center, published in the Neuropsychopharmacology, the study’s senior author Asaf Keller, Ph.D., Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology, “Previous research has shown that children who started using marijuana before the age of 16 are at greater risk of permanent cognitive deficits, and have a significantly higher incidence of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. There likely is a genetic susceptibility, and then you add marijuana during adolescence and it becomes the trigger.”
“Adolescence is the critical period during which marijuana use can be damaging,” says the study’s lead author, Dr Sylvina Mullins Raver, Ph.D. in Anatomy and Neurobiology,
The scientists began by examining cortical oscillations in mice. Cortical oscillations are patterns of the activity of neurons in the brain and are believed to underlie the brain’s various functions. These oscillations are very abnormal in schizophrenia and in other psychiatric disorders. The scientists exposed young mice to very low doses of the active ingredient in marijuana for 20 days, and then allowed them to return to their siblings and develop normally.
“In the adult mice exposed to marijuana ingredients in adolescence, we found that cortical oscillations were grossly altered, and they exhibited impaired cognitive abilities,” says Dr. Raver. “We also found impaired cognitive behavioral performance in those mice. The striking finding is that, even though the mice were exposed to very low drug doses, and only for a brief period during adolescence, their brain abnormalities persisted into adulthood.”

The scientists repeated the experiment, this time administering marijuana ingredients to adult mice that had never been exposed to the drug before. Their cortical oscillations and ability to perform cognitive behavioral tasks remained normal, indicating that it was only drug exposure during the critical period of adolescence that impaired cognition through this mechanism. The researchers took the next step in their studies, trying to pinpoint the mechanisms underlying these changes and the time period in which they occur.

We looked at the different regions of the brain,” says Dr. Keller. “The back of the brain develops first, and the frontal parts of the brain develop during adolescence. We found that the frontal cortex is much more affected by the drugs during adolescence. This is the area of the brain that controls executive functions such as planning and impulse control. It is also the area most affected in schizophrenia.”

Dr. Keller’s team believes that the results have indications for humans as well. They will continue to study the underlying mechanisms that cause these changes in cortical oscillations. “The purpose of studying these mechanisms is to see whether we can reverse these effects,” says Dr. Keller. “We are hoping we will learn more about schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders, which are complicated conditions. These cognitive symptoms are not affected by medication, but they might be affected by controlling these cortical oscillations.”

Many groups of scientists have studied the brains of teenagers, too. Compared to those who never used pot, the tissue in the brains of young pot users has been shown to exhibit structural changes. Specifically, the white matter (the cells in our brains that connect different areas) is more porous in subjects that began regularly using pot at a young age, a physical state associated with slower mental processing. Gray matter (the cells in the brain responsible for processing information) showed changes in shape and size, alterations that are associated with executive dysfunction, mood issues, and poor memory. In addition, the brains of teenagers who are heavy pot users have lower blood flow, develop abnormal neuron connections, and show inefficient brain activation patterns. All of these physical features are associated with poor memory, attention, impulse control, organization, and time management.

Teenagers who use weed daily have increased rates of depression, anxiety, and psychosis later in life. (Psychosis means someone has lost connection with reality—i.e., they see and/or hear things that don’t exist.), psychosis and heavy pot use in adolescence are linked.

Teens and Dopamine

For the same reason weed makes adults feel good: It releases dopamine into the brain. When you get high, dopamine signals tell your neurons that it feels good and you should do it again. Dopamine does the same thing when you have sex, listen to music you enjoy, or eat junk food. Dopamine is part of the pleasure/reward system in the brain, which is actively developing until adulthood; messing with it during adolescence can cause damage. Decreased dopamine signals in teenage pot smokers’ brains have been observed after prolonged use, meaning getting high becomes more difficult. In other words, the more weed a teen smokes now, the less happy weed will make him or her over time. And without weed, definitely unhappy, for his dopamine levels are low, permanently. It takes the joy of life away. This can make teenagers who use heavily more prone to depression, anxiety, addiction and even suicide..
So What About Adult Weed Users?

After the brain has finished developing, it is not vulnerable since neurodevelopment is basically complete. Toking up at a young age has a different effect on the brain than toking up as an adult. So have no worries, all is good.

McChronalds very strict policy – 21 years and over only- Let me tell you about Ron…

Let me tell you just a few things about Ron, the CEO, CFO, COO, GM, Quality control officer, Chief Buyer, bookkeeper, Picker, packer, shipper man of many hats. He is a very, very busy man (Honestly, he needs a vacation, bad), he had a disaster a few months back, leaving him short staffed (Also feeling betrayal), to say the least. Now, one of the things that sets McChronalds apart from the competition, is the initial phone call you must have with him, personally. One of the major reason’s for the call is to make sure you are at least 21, due diligence, and he has his ways of knowing, from what you say, or answer. You can’t con the man, you can’t fuck around with a guy who has gone through ‘the school of hard knocks’, and has been around the block several times. HE WILL KNOW YOU ARE UNDER 21, PERIOD, in a second. Woe is he the punk who tried to con Ron on the phone, I can almost hear his wrath now, berating the kid, telling him why, from authority, the truths about weed and his young mind. He doesn’t have to take all that extra time on the phone weeding out the brain damaged punks when he is running shorthanded a very busy, challenging business that is  very customer service oriented requiring same day shipping on all orders. He can make a lot more money by turning a blind eye, no vetting call, no registration required, yes, cash is OK.

Now you know why he also has the policy of never shipping to college or university residence’s, those immature, morally fucked up places at times, with most students being under 21. Yep, he wont be part of fucking up a college kids head up for life either. Ron won’t ship to a school address for the same reason as the phone call. Why? Because he cares, it isn’t about the money with him, the business is his passion, he wants to do the right thing, period. He don’t want to be even partially responsible for fucking some kids brains up for life, for money.

Now, all I will say about the competition out there, well, check out their sites, no registration, they take cash, no phone call. What does that tell you my friends? Who is the honorable one, who do you want to do business with.

Ron will never short count you, in fact, weigh your order, I will admit I have a couple of times scaled it, only because by eye, I saw there was extra, and there was. After almost 40 years buying weed, I can eyeball a good 1/4 oz count or a short count. That’s Ron. Any problem you might have, he will rectify it, plus some. The weed; It is what it is, and nothing else, guaranteed. The other sites, they sell B-grade and even C-grade, wtf? Only AAA+ with Ron.

Many others seem to realize that Ron is a busy man, I hear it in the forums when you are understanding why Ron might be a little late on a phone call or email, or whatever, Most of you are understanding and have been cool, you are all good people. Emailing and Phone calls are difficult at times when you are the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, General Manager, Chief Buyer, Quality Assurance officer, Human Resources, Picker, Packer, Shipper, HR manager and 15 more hats and training 2 people to boot, running McChronalds, basically solo. My friends, that’s what sets McChronalds apart from the others. This is why I ask you my friends, to be loyal, to make that 2nd or 5th order because it says to Ron, Thank You bro, for being there for me, for being honorable.

Your first purchase? Well, a gift from Ron, free delivery, code 72162 at checkout!

I think that parents have an obligation — to be even more pointed with our children by saying to them: “If you’re tempted to smoke weed, please hold off as long as you possibly can. Your beautiful brain is still developing.”

The Miracle That is Weed

The Miraculous Nature of Weed

The cannabis plant contains compounds that  have a wide range of medicinal applications throughout the body. Cannabis has a profound influence on the human body.  How can one herb help so many different conditions in so many ways? How can it provide both the ability to relieve symptoms and also have the ability to treat and cure? How can it be so safe while offering such powerful effects?

Cancer, Crohn’s disease, Epilepsy, Chronic Pain, Multiple Sclerosis, Sleep Disorders, Tourette’s syndrome, Eczema, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Anorexia, Glaucoma, Arthritis, PMS, Anxiety Disorders, Autism, Asthma, Cerebral Palsy, Constipation, Sleep Apnea, Headaches (Cluster, Migraine, Tension), Viral Hepatitis, Cystic Fibrosis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Severe Nausea, PTSD, Senile Dementia, Emphysema, Gastritis, and this is just to name a few,  I could name at the very least another 100+ ailments that marijuana helps in one way or another. All of these conditions have different causes, different physiologic states, and vastly different symptoms, all over the body. This one herb and its variety of therapeutic compounds seem to affect every aspect of our bodies and minds, whether we be male or female, young or old, American or Asian or whatever race, wherever we live in the world, how is this possible? All of the ailments with symptoms or ailments that can be treated if not cured with marijuana, we are just touching the tip of the iceberg on what we know about this weed and what immense good it can do for humanity, and it’s potential is quite profound, utterly amazing, if not miraculous. There is so much more this humble weed can do for us, that as of yet to be discovered. This herb that has been for so long stigmatized, regarded as worthy of disgrace and great disapproval, condemned, all by false information, only to be found that the herb of God’s approval, can benefit mankind in ways we can only dream of, and the following is why weed is the miracle plant.

The Endocannabinoid System

The search to answer these valid questions has led scientists to the discovery of a previously unknown system in our bodies, what has become the most important system of the health and healing of every human and almost every animal: The Endocannabinoid System. To understand the Endocannabinoid System is to understand the miraculous nature of weed. Truth be told, our bodies and minds were designed to use pot. Using synthetic pharmaceutical drugs has been the wrong approach in so many cases, causing more harm than good.

Homeostasis

The endogenous cannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important system in our body involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, tissues, glands, nervous system and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: Homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable healthy internal environment despite changes in the outside environment, a system in which differences are regulated so that conditions remain at an optimum healthy level within our bodies and minds.

Autophagy

Cannabinoids promote homeostasis at every level of biological life. Here is just one example: Autophagy, a normal process in the body that deals with the destruction of unhealthy cells is controlled by the cannabinoid system. While this process keeps normal cells alive, it has a deadly effect on unhealthy cells such as malignant tumor cells, Cancer cells, causing them to consume themselves in a programmed cellular suicide. The death of cancer cells, of course, promotes homeostasis and survival at the level of the entire organism. I am confidant marijuana will soon be our long awaited cure for Cancer.

Endocannabinoids and Cannabinoids

Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are also found at the cross roads of the body’s various systems, allowing communication and coordination between different cell types.

A bridge between body and mind

The endocannabinoid system, with its complicated actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we begin to see how states of mind and consciousness can also promote health or disease. A healthy mind and soul promotes a healthy body.

In addition to regulating our internal and cellular homeostasis, cannabinoids influence a person’s relationship with the external environment. Socially, the administration of cannabinoids clearly alters human behavior, often promoting sharing, humor, and creativity. By mediating neurogenesis (the creation of new brain cells), neuronal plasticity (the reorganization of neural pathways in the brain), and learning, cannabinoids may directly influence a person’s open-mindedness and ability to move beyond limiting patterns of thought and behavior from past situations. Changing these old patterns is an important part of health in our quickly changing environment.

What Are Cannabinoid Receptors?

All mammals, as well as other species, share the endocannabinoid system as an essential part of life. Scientists estimate that the endocannabinoid system started evolving in primitive animals over 600 million years ago. While it may seem we know a lot about cannabinoids, the estimated twenty thousand plus scientific articles written to date on cannabinoids have just begun to shed light on the subject.

Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body and are more numerous than any other receptor system. When cannabinoid receptors are stimulated, a variety of processes begin. Researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB1, mostly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs; and CB2, mostly found in the immune system. Many tissues contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors, each linked to a different action. Researchers speculate there may be a third cannabinoid receptor waiting to be discovered. These cannabinoid receptors in our bodies can also be stimulated by the cannabinoids in marijuana. They are basically the same substance as what is produced naturally in the body, and this is why I say we were designed to smoke, ingest weed. We were made for pot. We need weed.

Endocannabinoids and Phytocannabinoids

Endocannabinoids are the substances our bodies naturally make to stimulate these receptors. Phytocannabinoids are the substances in marijuana plants that also stimulate these same cannabinoid receptors. THC is the most famous of these substances, but other cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) are gaining the interest of researchers due to a variety of healing properties. Most phytocannabinoids have been isolated from the sativa strain of weed. And there are many, many more cannabinoids in weed to be researched and find how they might be benificial to our bodies also. Phytocannabinoids can replace depleted endocannabinoids in our bodies, Cannabinoids in marijuana act on the body by signaling the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors, assisting in healing us and keeping us healthy.

Understanding Free Radicals and Antioxidants

Interestingly, the cannabis plant also uses THC and other cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease. Cannabinoids have antioxidant properties that protect the leaves and flowering structures from the harmful effects of the sun – cannabinoids neutralize the harmful free radicals generated by UV rays, protecting the cells. In humans, free radicals cause aging, cancer, disease, and impaired healing. Antioxidants found in plants have long been promoted as natural supplements to prevent free radical harm. In recent years, there has been a great deal of attention toward the field of free radical chemistry. A balance between free radicals and antioxidants is necessary for proper bodily functioning. If free radicals overwhelm the body’s ability to regulate them, they will trigger a number of human diseases. The search for effective, nontoxic natural compounds with antioxidative activity has been intensified in recent years, and researchers are finding it, in weed. Cannabinoids in weed have natural antioxidant properties that prevent free radical harm. Less free radical harm equals less disease. Free radicals and antioxidants have become commonly used terms in modern discussions of disease mechanisms, and marijuana are now part of these discussions. In controlling free radicals, we can not only control cancer and other diseases, but aging as well.

Cannabis, The Endocannabinoid System, And Good Health

As we continue to sort through the emerging science of cannabis and cannabinoids, one thing remains clear: a functional cannabinoid system is essential for health. From conception in our mother’s uterus, to nursing and growth, to responding to injuries, endocannabinoids help us survive in a quickly changing and increasingly hostile environment. Can an individual enhance his/her cannabinoid system by taking supplemental cannabis? Beyond treating symptoms, beyond even curing disease, can cannabis help us prevent disease and promote health by stimulating an ancient system that is hard-wired into all of our bodies? The answer is YES. Research has shown that small doses of cannabinoids from cannabis can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors. This is why many first-time cannabis users don’t feel an effect, but by their second or third time using the herb they have built more cannabinoid receptors and are ready to respond. On a personal note, when I started smoking herb almost 40 years ago, I never got a buzz, everyone else seemed to catch a buzz, but not me, it was only after regular use did I start getting a buzz on, now I know why. More receptors increase a person’s sensitivity to cannabinoids; smaller doses have larger effects, and the individual has an enhanced baseline of endocannabinoid activity. I believe that small, regular doses of cannabis might act as a tonic to our most central physiologic healing system.

Many physicians might laugh at the thought of prescribing a ‘weed’ as medicine, a plant substance, and they are outright mortified by the idea of smoking a medicine. Our medical system is more comfortable with single, isolated synthetic substances that can be swallowed or injected. Unlike synthetic drugs, marijuana may contain over one hundred different cannabinoids, including THC, which all work together to produce better medical effects and less side effects than THC alone. While cannabis is safe and works well when smoked, many people prefer to avoid respiratory irritation and instead use a vaporizer, tincture, or topical salve. Scientific and patient testimonials both indicate that herbal cannabis has superior medical qualities to synthetic cannabinoids.

Thomas Edison, the prophet

In 1902 Thomas Edison said, “There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending toward the simple truth that you can’t improve on nature.” Cannabinoid research has proven this statement is still valid.

So, is it possible that the marijuana plant we have been told by authorities for so many decades to be dangerous, addictive, and of no medicinal value, if not bordering on being evil, a drug still illegal federally in the USA as a schedule one drug, on par with cocaine and heroin, could become the most useful medicine in the history of mankind which can treat the widest variety of human diseases and ailments, be used to actually prevent and cure diseases, and ultimately a substance that will shield us, protect us from our own polluted, increasingly toxic, carcinogenic, poisonous environment? YES. This was well known in ancient India, China, and Tibet, and now, we ourselves are now becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of marijuana by modern western science. Of course, we need more human-based research studying the effectiveness of cannabis, despite the American DEA’s best efforts to discourage marijuana-related research.

Most doctors know shit about medicine

Does your doctor understand the benefits of marijuana? Can he or she advise you in proper medicinal administration? Likely not. Despite the two largest U.S. physician associations (American Medical Association and American College of Physicians) calling for more research, the U.S. Congress prohibiting federal interference in states’ medical cannabis programs, a 5,000 year history of safe therapeutic use, and a huge amount of published research, most doctors know little or nothing about marijuana.

This is all changing now, because the public is demanding it. People want safe, natural and inexpensive treatments that stimulate our bodies’ ability to self-heal and help our population improve its quality of life. Cannabis is one such solution. We are living at a time of profound change in how we look at marijuana, scientific evidence proves the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids. Weed is a miracle plant that can only benefit mankind. Bud is all good. We have come along way since ‘Reefer Madness’.
