Why you should eat raw weed!

f you’re familiar with cannabis, then you know that raw marijuana is non-psychoactive. Because of that fact, you might be wondering why you would ever want to eat unheated weed. Well, this herb may actually turn out to be one of the most nutritionally valuable plants we’ve found yet. 

Marijuana is a superfood. This incredibly unique plant contains over 400 different chemical compounds. The number of vitamins, essential oils, and acids found in cannabis has led experts like Dr. William Courtney to call weed a “dietary essential.” Marijuana is a particularly special plant in the world of nutrition because the herb contains extremely high concentrations of cannabinoid acids. Turns out, these acids are incredibly important for basic cell function.

Cancer patient: ‘I had to become an outlaw or die’

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Midstate man diagnosed with a terminal cancer says he was faced with a tough choice: break the law or die.

He chose to break the law.

ABC 27 is not identifying him. He says he was diagnosed with a rare cancer and given a two-percent chance of survival. While he decided to move forward with chemotherapy to give him more time with his family, he says he was presented with another option after the cancer spread to his lungs and liver.

“One of my doctors had suggested medical marijuana,” he said. “I was a skeptic. No way is this stuff going to work. It is all hype. It is all for the potheads.”

His wife started making marijuana oil for him. For almost three months he has been eating the oil containing THC daily and sometimes vaporizing it.

“I definitely guess I would be high, but if I was on morphine, which is what I had to be on before, I would not be talking to you. I would be on the couch drooling,” he said. “With this oil I am completely off pharmaceuticals and I can function. I can get up in the morning and make myself breakfast and walk my dogs. So, I think this is a lot better than sitting on the couch drooling.”

He says he was even more convinced the oil was working when he received his most recent CAT scan results.

“All the cancer in my lungs is gone and all the tumors in my liver have shrank, are gone, or remain the same,” he said. “I was shocked. I dropped to the ground. I could not believe it.”

“I thought it would be a miracle drug for him and it has been,” his mother said. “I do not consider it something illegal. I think of it as a medicine.”

He says he is on his fourth round of chemo and the oil has allowed him to keep his hair and gain weight.

“The nurses at the oncologist are asking him what his secret is,” his wife said. “I am sorry it has to be a secret. It should not be.”

#StillWaiting has become the most recent battle cry of those fighting for legalized medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, but this family says waiting is just not an option for them.

“I think it is a crime that people are kept from this medicine,” he said. “It has helped me so much. It has given me an opportunity to have some hope and it has lead to extremely positive results for me, in conjunction with conventional medicine, as well.”

“This is my husband’s life,” his wife said. “[Lawmakers] can play games on their own time. If I have to be a criminal, so be it.”

It costs them about $2,600 dollars a month to make the marijuana oil.

Pennsylvania physicians still appear to be torn on the issue. While many support compassionate use of medical cannabis, many believe there needs to be more research.

The Pennsylvania Medical Society recently voted to ask the state to fund research on the use of marijuana for medical purposes.

AHS12 Terry Wahls, MD — Minding My Mitochondria

A Physician and MS patient found a way to slow down her MS

Abstract:
I have progressive Multiple Sclerosis and was confined to a tilt recline wheelchair. A professor of medicine, I studied the basic science literature about progressive brain diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s, the nutritional requirements of the brain and the Paleo Diet.

Using what I learned, I created a modified Paleo Diet to maximize the nutrition for my mitochondria, my cells and my brain. Just 9 months after this new way of eating, I was able to bicycle 18 miles. I tell my personal story as I teach the biology of what our cells need to thrive, why a structured Paleo Diet provides the most nutrition per calorie of any diets and how to eat for maximal health of our mitochondria, our cells and our brains and bodies. My clinical trial, using the Paleo Diet, has remarkably positive results.

Terry Wahls, M.D.

Bio:
Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor at the University of Iowa. Progressive multiple sclerosis, confined her to a wheelchair for years however, using a Paleo Diet, Dr. Wahls restored her health and now bikes to work. She is the author of Minding My Mitochondria.

Treating Breast Cancer with Cannabis – Why the Treatment Must Match the Classification!

Breast cancer is a major and growing health issue among women. Invasive breast cancer is the most common type cancer affecting women worldwide, and the second-most-common type overall, according to the Susan G. Komen foundation. This year, an estimated 232,000 cases will be diagnosed just in the US. Early detection and successful treatment are crucial for survival.

According to doctors and patients we have worked closely with, breast cancer tumors can be effectively treated with cannabis oil. However, they caution, the ratios of the tumor-busting cannabinoids THC and CBD must be matched to the classification of breast cancer—with certain kinds of breast cancer, namely those that are estrogen-Leaf Of Cannabispositive, the tumor will actually grow if too much THC is used!

Cannabis and Asthma

Asthma is an inflammatory condition that constricts the airways and causes increased mucus production. The lungs of an asthmatic are inflammed making them sensitive to a variety of triggers such as allergens or exercise. The presence of such triggers can cause further agitation leading to an asthma attack where the smooth muscles around the lungs constrict and the airways narrow resulting in wheezing and breathing difficulties. It’s a seemingly paradoxical idea, smoking a plant to alleviate constriction of the airways, but it works. Of course smoking it is far from the cleanest method of delivery but its been known since 1973 that THC acts as a bronchodilator because of the work of Dr. Donald Tashkin. He and his team at UCLA investigated the effects of smoked cannabis and ingested THC on the lungs and found that both methods of intake dilated the airways. Recently further investigation into THC’s effects on the lungs by French researchers determined it can inhibit the contraction of lungs, a mechanism that many current asthma medications utilize to alleviate the condition. So how does this happen? Much of the difficulties breathing caused by asthma can be attributed to the contraction of the smooth muscle surrounding the lungs. This contraction is caused by the neurotransmitter actetylcholine, the release of which is greatly reduced when the CB1 receptor is activated. This decrease in cholinergic transmission leads to decreased muscle contractions making for easier breathing for the patient. By the courtesy of SC Laboratories
