Genetically Modified Pot?

MMAR home grown

Under the MMAR (Canada’s old Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations), it allowed patients in Canada to choose their medicine. After all, are we not masters of our own domain? Able to determine what our body needs? When did we give that up, if we did?

The above “thin layer chromatography” (TLC) chromatogram (a.k.a. bud footprint) clearly identifies more than just THC in three bud samples tested  (including a sample of BC Bud). These are buds grown under the MMAR regulations, when patients in Canada had a choice and could choose their medicine.

Compare being Masters of our own Domain, above,  with what Health Canada has regulated, below:

LP Pot (pot from Licensed Producers), is the second chromatogram and shows three samples from Licensed Producers’ pot, under the MMPR. Please take a minute to compare the two chromatograms, both shown above.

LP pot, second example, only shows THC and in a very strange way. Genetically altered?

The question that needs an answer is this:

Are patients in Canada guaranteed that the Health Minister has not again sold out out health to genetically altered cannabis cultivars to and from Big Pharma?

The Need for a Cannabis Paradigm Shift

wtf

Thomas Kuhn coined the phrase “paradigm shift” in 1962.

In 1964 Dr Raphael Mechoulam, an organic chemist from Israel, managed to obtain samples of the illegal substance called marijuana. From those samples, he isolated and elucidated the psychoactive constituent in the “marijuana” plant called THC (delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol).

We then learn that everyone of us has an endogenous cannabinoid system (aka endocannabinoid system) complete with cannabinoid receptors. What does this mean? The cannabis plant is able to work with our bodies system to enable it in achieving homeostasis. In other words, the pot plant is the top plant that can help us achieve ultimate health.  You can’t make this stuff up!

At the time that they were building the pharmaceutical industry, they demonized the biggest competitor, the pot plant.

This is why a paradigm shift is of the utmost importance.

Weasel Science; Junk Science and WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) has posted a bulletin on their site entitled “Herbal medicine research and global health: an ethical analysis”.

Their post addresses the growing recognition of traditional herbal medicine; traditional medicine that has been in use in Africa and TCM in China and Ayurvedic medicine in Indica – and each and every one was used since antiquity.

The gist of the UN’s WHO article states that although WHO agrees with the potential of accepting traditional plant based medicine, their official position is that “herbal plant based medicine” does not compare to  Big Pharma’s “sound science” based medicine. Their article states that the investment in the science of traditional plant based medicine pales in comparison to what the pharmaceutical companies have spent on “sound science” that purportedly supports their patented petrol pills.

The WHO’s official opinion is that since traditional plant based medicine, lacks “sound science”, too much risk exists relative to the sound science existing in pharmaceuticals.

What is “sound science?  

Sound science, as with other disciplines involving statistical sampling, is susceptible to manipulation. Think Enron and their year-end auditors,  Author Anderson (What do you want the results to say?)

Sound science, when used by paid scientists in the pharmaceutical industry, is science that is vigorously supported by the scientific community and confirmed by multiple peer-reviewed studies.

In politics and other disciplines, “sound science” has been defined as a play on the “uncertainty tactic”. Uncertainty is known as the risk factor. This tactic has been used against natural remedies to demand irrefutable proof of the science before it can be deemed acceptable scientific proof. There are many that define “sound science” as “weasel science”. Weasel science is known as science that does not reflect the whole truth, rather, it is used to mask the truth for personal gain.

Sound Science: “What do you want the results to say?”

Robert Spott from the Yurok tribe in Cali, stated in 1890:

“And that, I guess, is what it all boils down to – do the right thing, everything goes fine; do the wrong thing, everything’s a mess.”

In 1970, Sun Bear from the Chippewa Tribe, is quoted with the following observation and advice:

“A man was chief only as long as he did the will of the people. If he got to be too chiefy, he’d go to sleep one night, and wake up the next morning to find that he was chief all to himself. The tribe would move away in the night, and they didn’t wait four years to do it either.”

In 1868, Chief Ouray from the UTE. Colorado tribe stated:

“Agreements with the government are like the agreement a buffalo makes with the hunter after it has been pierced by many arrows. All it can do is lie down and give in.”

“isn’t it time we began to think about what we are thinking about? It is the only way we can move forward and become that which we think about.” Mohican’s

Liver Cancer in Adults and Cannabinoids

not just for hippies

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), also known as liver cancer,  is reported to have a high mortality rate and has no adequate treatment. However, Allopathic Practitioners still use their “cut, poison and burn” methods of medical care.

Fortunately, thanks to the many proponents of natural health, science has recently disclosed their discovery of our endogenous cannabinoid system and how we all carry cannabinoid receptors  (the endogenous cannabinoid system is also called the endocannabinoid system for short). In addition, the phytocannabinoids that are unique to the cannabis plant, have the ability of using the signals of our cannabinoid receptors in our bodies to activate our endocannabinoid system back to a homeostasis state i.e. the phytocannabinoids help our bodies regain a level of optimal health.

If the above sounds too far fetched, is it not more far fetched as to why a medicinal plant was demonized and criminalized to the extent it was in the first place?

For a scientific explanation of how the cannabinoids in cannabis can cure liver cancer (HCC), do review this and other articles.

Hemp Seed reverses Rare Liver Cancer

hemp recipes paperback

Hepatoblastoma is a rare cancer of the liver that occurs in infants and young children.  This type of liver cancer is purported to be found within the first three years of life. The most common treatment for this cancer is surgery (removal of the tumor or liver transplant), chemo or radiation.

However, one of a group of related compounds found in the root and shells of the hemp plant, namely cannabisativine has shown to kill these cancer cells. The specific compound, cannabisin B, destroys the cancer cells and brings the body back to homeostasis functioning.

Many scientists and University professors that grew up believing the hype against “marijuana” are stunned to learn the real medicinal value, now that they have found ways to conduct research, and find out for themselves.

Due to the UN’s strict control since the mid 20th century on anything related to Cannabis Sativa, including consumption as food, research, studying, growing, personal medicinal use, etc, was strictly and forcibly forbidden and punished under the UN’s Strict International Drug Treaties.

Did you know that before the global eradication of industrial hemp and medicinal cannabis (they were both demonized and criminalized together), hemp was the main food source during the depression years when farmers in Canada’s western provinces would lose their crops to unrelenting weather?  There is evidence too that shows if your only consumption was hemp over an extended period of time, it would be very difficult for allopathic medicine (or any form of medicine) to find a deficiency of any kind in your body?

Say No to Monsanto

gm corn

Monsanto claims their GE crops are safe and “substantially equivalent” to other food and therefore, does not need disclosure in food labels nor extra regulation. On the other hand, they claim their GE seeds are a novel invention that requires a patent.

Their Bt Corn  is genetically crossed with material from a bacteria known as Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). This corn is also registered as a pesticide.

Is genetically engineered food safe? Consider the scientific studies from Professor Seralini in France.

A professor of molecular biology at the University of Caen in France, Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini conducted a long term scientific study on the effects of Bt corn on rats and concluded that this corn or roundup ready fertilizer has the effect of causing cancer and severe organ damage. When these findings were first published in 2012 in Food and Chemical Toxicology (Elsevier), it caused such an uproar that Food and Chemical retracted the story on the basis that the study was full of faults and therefore unfounded. However, the study was found credible and was republished in 2014 in the open-access journal Environmental Sciences Europe.

Corporations need to understand that it is necessary to learn to live in harmony with nature. Corporations like Monsanto threaten the future of nature and the lives of everyone and everything with their attempts at controlling nature.

Why is Canada’s Health Minister Outraged over SCC Unanimous Ruling that Allows Consumption of Cannabis?

kudos-and-kvetches

Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that restricting Medical Cannabis to just dried herb “violates the right to liberty and security in a manner that is arbitrary and hence is not with(in) the principles of fundamental justice.”

This ruling has the Minister of Health, Rona Ambrose,  “outraged”.

The Minister is quoted with stating:

“Let’s remember, there’s only one authority in Canada that has the authority and the expertise to make a drug into a medicine and that’s Health Canada,” she said during a press conference.

“Marijuana has never gone through the regulatory approval process at Health Canada, which of course, requires a rigorous safety review and clinical trials with scientific evidence.”

As a result of this SCC ruling, the charges for trafficking in cookies against Owen Smith, have been dropped.

Why on earth is the Health Minister outraged?

Looking back at what Health Canada has accomplished has revealed the following:

Health Canada (HC), in 2004, fired three of their scientists that spoke up against genetically modified food products.  Dr. Shiv Chopra, one of the scientists that was fired by HC, has gone public with what goes on at Health Canada. He has revealed that HC requires their (the scientist’s) approval on products without even allowing information on what they are approving. Dr. Chopra has even written a book entitled “Corrupt to the Core: Memoirs of a Health Canada Whistleblower” http://www.amazon.com/Corrupt-Core-Memoirs-Health-Whistleblower/dp/097319457X

The Health Minister wants us to remember that they are the only ones with the authority to approve what Canadians are allowed to be prescribed as medicine.

How many people are aware that prescription medicine is the fourth leading cause of death in Canada?  http://commonground.ca/2012/01/prescription-drug-deaths/

Earlier this year, an investigative reporter, Joachim Hagoplan, published “The Evil of Big Pharma Exposed”  http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-evils-of-big-pharma-exposed/5425382 

The above report is very thorough with respect to how Big Pharma came to be and who they are.

Why in the world would Canada’s Health minister be “outraged” over the SCC ruling of allowing the consumption of medical cannabis?

Could it be that consuming this herb has the ability of not only curing cancer but is more effective than any prescription drug available from Big Pharma?

If the Minister of Health is outraged over a plant that is more effective than any prescription drug on the market, why is she the Minister of Health? Clearly, her mandate is preserving profits over patients.

What is an Anxiety Attack?

stress

An anxiety attack is also referred to as a “panic attack” and can be brought on by real or imagined fear, often described as excessive fear.  An anxiety attack, can be characterized as having the following:

  • uncontrollable crying
  • shortness of breath
  • shaking
  • a rapid heartbeat
  • an overall out of control feeling of dread.

Unfortunately, it is said that these attacks are more common in women than in men. It is also important to note that these attacks are more often than not, usually related to some psychological factor. For example, psychological factors that can instigate a panic or anxiety attack includes:

  • work-related stress
  • family related stress
  • too much changes in your life all at once
  • anything that can make you feel overwhelmed is liable to trigger an attack.

In addition to psychological factors, other factors that can bring on an attack include the following:

  • stimulants such as coffee and sugar
  • any foods that you are allergic to
  • chemical food additives such as MSG, aspartame and even salt

OK, so what can we do about panic attacks in order to avoid them in the future, or at least alleviate their severity?
