The Perfect Blend of Two World Famous Herbal Medicines
Immune system up-regulator hailed by millions as a cure for cancer.
Cannabinoids of Medical Marijuana
(without THC) Non-psychoactive.
Although there is no detectable THC in this product, the precursor THCA is present. There is no psychoactive effect, however it is possible that a urine test may test positive. Those who are in employment. and other relationships where testing is required should not use this product.
Definitely cutting edge. The world has been discovering the wonderful healing effects of Essiac for a period of nearly 50 years. The testimonials abound. At the same time, though at a slower pace Medical Marijuana is finally gaining its rightful place of respect as a natural healer as well. And why shouldn't it? The Bible specifically declares in Genesis 1:29 that God himself gave us "every seed bearing herb." and further that the "leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations" Rev. 22:2
Rick Simpson, from Canada has done a monumental work advancing the healing properties of Medical Marijuana ( see his video ) We totally concur with him. However for legal reasons, at this particular juncture in the evolution of Medical Marijuana's acceptance we are only offering Medical Marijuana which has no THC which is the psychoactive chemical found in the marijuana plant. At the same time,
Marijuana expresses over 100 other cannabinoids and other terpenes and phyto-chemicals which research shows have incredible health enhancing benefits which may include:
1. Slow and stop cancer cells from spreading
It was found in the study, published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, that Cannabidiol has the ability to stop cancer by turning off a gene called Id-1.  In 2007, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, reported that CBD may prevent cancer from spreading. The researchers experimented on breast cancer cells in the lab that had high level of Id-1, and treated them with cannabidiol. The outcome was rather positive, the cells had decreased Id-1 expression, and were less aggressive spreaders. In fact, the American Association for Cancer Research has found that marijuana actually works to slow down tumor growth in brain, breast, and lungs considerately.
2. Prevent Alzheimer’s
THC, the active ingredient present in marijuana slows the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, a 2006 study led by Kim Janda of the Scripps Research Institute found out. THC slows the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that makes them. Although this product does not have a detectable level of THC, the precursor THCA is present and the electrical signature is also present. For this reason, our product appears to be effective without the annoying "high" feeling.
3. Treat Glaucoma
Marijuana can be used to treat glaucoma, which is a disease which increases the pressure in the eyeball, injuring the optic nerve and causing loss of vision. According to National Eye Institute, marijuana lowers the pressure inside the eye, “Studies in the early 1970s showed that marijuana, even when smoked, lowered intraocular pressure (IOP) in people with normal pressure and those with glaucoma.”
4. Relieve Arthritis
In 2011, researchers reported that cannabis reduces pain and inflammation, and promotes sleep, which may help relieve pain and discomfort for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers of the rheumatology units at several hospitals gave their patients Sativex, a cannabinoid-based pain-relieving medicine. After two weeks, patients on Sativex had a significant reduction in pain, and improved better sleep quality compared to placebo users.
5. Control Epileptic seizure
A 2003 study showed that marijuana use can control epileptic seizure.Robert J. DeLorenzo, of Virginia Commonwealth University, gave marijuana extract and synthetic marijuana to epileptic rats. The drugs stopped the seizures in about 10 hours. The THC controlled the seizures by binding the brain cells responsible for controlling excitability and regulating relaxation. The results were published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.
6. Ease the pain of multiple sclerosis
Marijuana works to stop the negative neurological effects and muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis. A study published in the Canadian Medical Association suggests that marijuana may ease painful symptoms of multiple sclerosis.Jody Cory Bloom studied 30 multiple sclerosis patients with painful contractions in their muscles. These patients didn’t respond to other medications, but after smoking marijuana for few days, they reported that they were in less pain. The THC binds to the receptors in the nerves and and muscles to relieve pain.
7. Soothe tremors for people with Parkinson’s disease
Recent studies from Israel show that smoking marijuana remarkably reduces pains and tremors and improves sleep for Parkinson’s disease patients. What was impressive about the research was the improvement of the fine motor skills among patients. Israel has made medical marijuana legal, and a lot of research into the medical uses of weed is done there, supported by the Israeli Government.
8. Help with Crohn’s disease
Cannabis may be helpful with curing Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disorder that causes pain, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and more. But a recent study in Israel showed that smoking a joint considerably reduced Crohn’s disease symptoms in 10 out of 11 patients, and caused a complete cancellation of the disease in five of those patients. Of course, this is a small study, but other researches have shown similar results. The cannabinoids from cannabis seem to help the gut control bacteria and intestinal function
9. Decrease the symptoms of Dravet’s Syndrome
Dravet Syndrome causes seizures and severe developmental delays. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, renowned chief medical correspondent for CNN, is treating a five years old girl, Charlotte Figi, who has Dravet’s Syndrome, with medical marijuana strain high in cannabidiol and low in THC.
During the research for his documentary “WEED”, Gupta interviewed the Figi family, and according to the film, the drug decreased her seizures from 300 a week to just one every seven days. Forty other children are using the same medication, and it has helped them too.
The doctors who are recommending this medication explain that the cannabidiol in the plant interacts with the brain cells to quiet the excessive activities in the brain that causes the seizures.
10. Lessen side effects from treating Hepatitis C, and increase treatment effectiveness
Traditional treatment for Hepatitis C infection has severe side effects, so severe that many people are unable to continue their treatment. Side effects range from fatigue, nausea, muscle pains, loss of appetite, and depression- that can last for months.
A 2006 study in the European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology discovered that 86% of patients using marijuana successfully finished their therapies, while only 29% of the non-smokers completed their treatments. Cannabis also helps to improve the treatment’s effectiveness. 54% of the Hep C patients smoking marijuana experienced lower viral levels, and kept them low. By comparison, only 8% of the non-smokers saw lowered viral counts.
11. Decrease anxiety
In 2010, researchers at Harvard University suggested that another of medical marijuana benefits may actually be reduced anxiety, which would improve the smoker’s mood and act as a sedative in low doses. Beware, though, higher doses may increase anxiety and make you paranoid.
12. Help reverse the carcinogen effects of tobacco, and improve lung health
In January 2012, a study published in Journal of the American Medical Association showed that marijuana improved lung functions, and even increased lung capacity. Researchers looking for risks factors of heart disease, tested on 5,115 young adults, over the period of 20 years, and found out that only Marijuana users showed an increase in lung capacity, compared to the non-Marijuana tobacco smokers who lost lung function over time. It is suggested that the increased lung capacity is due to the deep breaths taken while inhaling the Marijuana, and perhaps not from a therapeutic chemical in the drug.
13. Reduce severe pain, and nausea from chemo, and stimulates appetite
One of the most common uses of medical marijuana is for people going through chemotherapy. Cancer patients going through chemo suffer from severe pains, painful nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. This can lead to further health complications. Marijuana can help reduce these side effects, reducing pain, decreasing nausea, and stirring up the appetite. Accordingly, there are other FDA approved cannabinoid drugs that use THC, for the same purposes.
14. Improve symptoms of Lupus, an autoimmune disorder.
Medical marijuana has been used to treat the autoimmune disorder called Systemic Lupus Ertyhematosus, Autoimmune disorders are those wherein the body starts attacking itself for unknown reasons. It is believed that some chemicals present in cannabis address the function of the over-reactive immune system, thus suppressing the symptoms of Lupus.
15. Protect brain after a stroke.
Research (done on rats, mice, and monkeys) from University of Nottingham shows that cannabis may help protect the brain from damage caused by a stroke by reducing the size of the area affected by the stroke. This isn’t the only research that has shown neuroprotective effects from cannabis. Some research suggest that the plant may help protect the brain after other traumatic events like concussions.
16. Help veterans suffering from PTSD
Marijuana is approved to treat PTSD in some states in America. In New Mexico, PTSD is the number one reason for people to get a license for medical marijuana, but this is the first time the U.S. Government’s Department of Health and Human Services has approved a proposal that incorporates smoked or vaporized marijuana. Naturally occurring cannabinoids, similar to THC, help modulate the area of the brain that triggers fear and anxiety in the body and brain.
17. Control other types of muscle spasms
Other types of muscle spasms respond to marijuana too. Dr. Gupta’s patient, Chaz, has a condition called myoclonus diaphragmatic flutter (also known as Leeuwenhoek’s Disease). This causes non stop spasming in the abdominal muscles which are not only painful, but interfere with breathing and speaking. Chaz has been using medical marijuana to treat this disease because other very strong medications were unable to treat him properly. Smoking marijuana in some cases is able to calm the attacks almost immediately, relaxing the muscles of the diaphragm.
18. Treat inflammatory bowel diseases
Just like Crohn’s disease, patients with other inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis could benefit from marijuana use, studies suggest. In 2010, University of Nottingham researchers have found that chemicals in marijuana, including THC, and cannabidiol, interact with cells in the body that play an important role in gut function, and immune system.
19. Help eliminate nightmares
This is a bit complicated because it involves both positive and negative effects. Marijuana may disturb the sleep cycle by interrupting the later stages of REM sleep However, people who suffer from serious nightmares, especially patients with PTSD, this can be helpful. Nightmares and other dreams occur during those same stages of sleep. By interrupting REM sleep, many of those dreams may not occur. Research using a synthetic cannabinoid, like THC, showed a decrease in the number of nightmares in patients with PTSD. Marijuana maybe a better sleep aid than some other medications or even alcohol because the latter two may potentially have worse effects on sleep, though more research is needed on the topic.
20. Protect the brain from concussion and trauma
A recent study in the journal Cerebral Cortex showed possibilities that marijuana can help heal the brain after a concussion, or other traumatic injury. In the journal it was said that the experiments were done on mice, and that marijuana lessened the bruising of the brain, and helped with healing mechanisms after a traumatic injury. Harvard professor emeritus of psychiatry and marijuana advocate Lester Grinspoon recently wrote an open letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodall, saying that NFL should stop testing players for marijuana, and instead should fund for research on marijuana plant’s ability to protect the brain.
In the open letter, he writes,
“Already many doctors and researchers believe that marijuana has incredibly powerful neuroprotective properties, an understanding based on both laboratory, and clinical data.” In response, Goodall recently mentioned that he’d consider permitting athletes to use marijuana if medical research shows that it’s an effective neuroprotective agent. These 20 medical benefits of marijuana are among the countless benefits this plant has. It is still puzzling how medical marijuana is still not legal in most of the country, and how it still retains such a negative reputation. Hopefully in the near future, medical science continues to prove its benefits in more fields, and make this plant a famous cure for all major kinds of ailments.
