Cannabis Is The Amazing Green Leaf

Since many USA states are now allowing Medical Marijuana, we thought we would put a page here to discuss the benefits of Cannabis. Cannabis is a genus of flowering herbs which includes three different species, Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis.

I have done countless hours of research on this amazing herb and most of what has been said about Cannabis being a drug, is not true. Simply just saying this leaf is an addictive drug, without researching the facts for yourself, is not helping to move humanity forward. If you are going to use cannabis in your home, it’s your responsibilty to manage the usage properly.

Animals And Birds Love Cannabis

If cannabis is a dangerous drug then why do hummingbirds love to sip it’s nectar? Birds have been known to be sensitive to chemicals and poisons. Canaries were once used in coal mines to warn the miners. If the canary was under any stress it was a good sign there could be carbon monoxide gases in the tunnels. Surely if cannabis is poisonous, the hummingbirds who drink from the  flowers would die. That just makes perfect sense to us.

Animals have been used throughout history to serve as advance warnings against toxic poisons and hazards. Many different animal and insects species depend on this plant for their survival and well being. The intentional eradication of cannabis on a global scale, is in my opinion a crime.

Hemp Is Also Cannabis Sativa (The Male Plant)

The ASC Magazine published an article in our May 2014 edition about the history of hemp growing. The THC content is kept fairly low in hemp so you will not feel the stoned effect from the male plant. The THC cannot be anymore than .03% in the plant, to grow in the state of Colorado. Coloradans can apply for a permit and grow a maximum of 2 acres of hemp for research and development purposes. See more about the permits here.

Cannabis is a naturally growing herb that has been around for thousands of years. Originally from places like China and Nepal it has been used for everything as medicine, cooking and industry. The ancient Egyptian people used it as a pain reliever for birthing children. The Chinese used it to treat all kinds of illness and were the first to make it into tinctures and medicines. Queen Victoria used cannabis to treat her depression after her husband, Prince Albert passed away. This is still a controversial subject for many people as they see cannabis as a drug. Unless you educate yourself and understand the history of this amazing plant you will go on believing the drug fallacy.

Original manuscript from The Coolidge Collection of Thomas Jefferson Manuscripts at the Massachusetts Historical Society.

Founding fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson encouraged and rewarded American farms to grow hemp once. It was used as a form of tender, medicines, rope, oils, tinctures and other foods like butter. The constitution was written on hemp paper. Benjamin Franklin often used Hemp paper to publish his newspapers.

It was America’s biggest industry and was highly successful. At one time the census report of 1850 reported there were over 8000 cannabis plantations with approximately 2000 acres on each farm. These were just the ones in the southern states. The census could only manage to count the big farms but were unable to record the smaller farms, which were cropping up in places like Nebraska, Wisconsin, California and Illinois. The picture to the left was taken in the 1930’s of the USDA inspecting a healthy Cannabis Sativa crop.

When Cannabis Changed In The USA

Cannabis or Marijuana was given the label of a drug because pharmaceutical companies along with rich American families like Hearst and DuPont, could not compete with Hemp and Cannabis in their businesses. Hemp once outranked the cotton industry and had far more uses, which put a dent in the pockets of the ultra rich. So propaganda posters and films came out about Cannabis being a drug and dangerous. Certain religious groups and other collaborators picked up the ball from there and started a campaign to outlaw this herb.

The Marihuna Tax Act 1937 was introduced mainly over corporate agenda’s and yes even racism within certain communities of this time. The IRS wanted a tax placed on Cannabis which obviously helped with revenue. American doctors never had a problem with cannabis and often prescribed medicines to their patients with Cannabis Indica in them. There was never any real proof to show Cannabis was ever harmful to the public. Doctors were not even aware of the name “Marijuana” but only ever prescribed it by the botanical name “Cannabis”. Babies were given Cannabis medicines for Whooping Cough. Treating infants this way actually decreased the cough and helped the baby sleep and heal.

Medical Benefits

“The proposition that smoked marijuana is “medicine” is, in sum, false–trickery used by those promoting wholesale legalization”. -The Legalization Lobby (Taken from the PDF The DEA Position on Marijuana). What I find so hypocritical about this statement are the people who are lobbying to keep Marijuana Illegal  like Pharmaceutical Corporations, Police Unions, Alcohol and Beer Companies, Prison Guard Unions and Private Prisons Corporations. If Cannabis is so useless then why are the pharmaceutical Corporations (who lobby against it’s legalization) going to be making products with THC (ingredient in cannabis) content in them? Only one reason I can think of…money, because these companies know this herb improves lives.

Here is just one Cannabis patent from Otsuka, (Limited and Gw Pharma companies) which only proves these corporations, have been trying to get cannabis patents going since 2011. The Rx companies do not want YOU to have a cheap natural cure because they will no longer make money off the public. As a matter of fact people who live in Colorado have become less dependent on Rx Meds because Cannabis is healing what ails them.

People are finding out they no longer need to use synthetic drugs versus the natural cure. The Rx corporations scam people every day and they know what cures us but refuse to allow humans to use Cannabis freely. Sharing cures is not one of our species highest priorities and besides it makes no money for the Rx corporations.

THC relieves pain in the body and doesn’t attach to the same receptors in the brain as other drugs do. Drugs like morphine, heroin and other prescription pain meds such as Oxycontin, Vicodin, Demerol all cause dependency. Cannabis medicines come from the oils produced off the female plant.

I really encourage people to learn more about THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). Before you make a decision about other medical treatments, take a look at the amazing results which are being given to cancer patients now. Research the information and then make the best decision from that point on.

Cannabis oil can shrink and eliminate cancerous tumors. You can take a look  At This Website  which shows 20 different ways cannabis can treat diseases and cancer. This website supplies medical studies and reports. Cannabis can also help people with depression, body aches, swelling, seizures, pain and get rid of skin cancer sores.

Hemp Can Repair DNA? Hempseed and hempseed oil have been found to be a factor in DNA repair. Hemp has the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6) needed by the human body. One ‘job’ of Omega 3 is cellular repair. Hemp is 65% protein, 35% of which is globulin edestin protein, and is very easily digestible by the body. See More Here and also here

Read about Christine who refused chemotherapy and decided to treat her brain tumor with Cannabis oil. After three MRI’s her tumors have shrunk considerably.

Before and After Cannabis Treatments

 

Crime Rates – Overdoses Go Down By Legalizing Cannabis

The Washington Post recently posted an article explaining, US states which allow Medical Marijuana have 25 percent fewer prescription drug overdose deaths.

“As our awareness of the addiction and overdose risks associated with use of opioid painkillers such as Oxycontin and Vicodin grows, individuals with chronic pain and their medical providers may be opting to treat pain entirely or in part with medical marijuana, in states where this is legal,” Colleen L. Barry, PhD, an associate professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School and senior author of the study, said in a statement.

The Huffington Post reported that crime in Denver has gone down since legalizing Cannabis. “During the first six months of 2014, violent crime in the city and county of Denver was down 3 percent from the same period in 2013, according to the most recent available data. Three of the four main categories of violent crime that are tracked in the data is homicide, sexual assault and robbery. All are down from the same six-month stretch last year.”

Cannabis One Of The Ingredients In The Holy Anointing Oil

For people who claim to be religious or still believe using cannabis is a sin against God, I would like to quote a few scriptures that reinforces our human and God Given rights to use Cannabis in what ever way helps us to feel better. If you think the Creator of all didn’t include medicinal plants such as Cannabis for us to use, then you have been totally indoctrinated.

Biblical Quotes For Seed Bearing Plants

Genesis 1:11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.

Genesis 1:12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

Genesis 1: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

1Timothy 4: 2- 4 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.

Growing Cannabis

We want to educate, create more interest and give people the information they need to make a decision about it’s proper usage.  There is a large interest in growing cannabis as more people research the holistic health benefits associated to the herb. We know there are people who doubt it can be grown successfully in aquaponics but that isn’t true.

I haven’t tried growing cannabis in aquaponics systems yet but I can say that I have successfully grown plants as you can see below. I have also grown a couple of female plants that produced an abundance of seeds, which is really what I wanted. Below is my first attempt at growing cannabis and as you can see the plant looks healthy and vibrant. The oil on the leaves is just starting to form.
