Dr. Raphael Mechoulam

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam

When it comes to researching the Cannabis plant there is one name that is synonymous. That name is Dr. Raphael Mechoulam. He was responsible for identifying tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and then later cannabidiol (CBD). He also identified the receptors that cannabis interacts with and all of the cannabiniods that bond to those receptors. To think we all have  a cannabiniod system inside our bodies that work together with cannabis like the other systems we have. These systems include  the Circulatory system, Lymphatic system, Nervous system, Endocrine system, Respiratory system, Digestive system, Urinary system. Your canabiniod system is what keeps the symbiotic relation going with Cannabis. It was meant to have a positive effect on our body system and be healthy for us, provided it’s ingested the right way. To say that our bodies were designed to get get high…well that doesn’t cut it.

“Is there more to learn about the cannabis plant and how it affects humans?”

“Because of administrative freezes [on research], there have been very, very few clinical studies. Although thousands of people use cannabis to fight cancer, there hasn’t been any clinical study, or a well-done, modern clinical study on cancer published. That’s a shame because if people use it, the data should be there. We should have modern clinical data. We did some clinical work on epilepsy 35 years ago and unfortunately nobody took great interest in that. And only five or six years ago all of a sudden people found that yes, our research is very relevant to what’s going on and many children today are being treated today with CBD, which we showed to be very active against epilepsy. There are very few drugs that help children with epilepsy. This should have been repeated on a larger scale in the U.S. We did a little work on PTSD and post-trauma. It should have been done on a large scale . . . All these things should have been done in the U.S. There is a major clinical trial on epilepsy. It should have been done 30 years ago after we published our small clinical paper. So that’s what’s missing. And I’m sorry about the situation.”

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam is retired now but has a lot of wisdom under his belt. Read the full interview here at this link…….

Hempcrete As A Building Material

Hempcrete As a Building Material

Many people are trying to find building materials that are sustainable and are also strong and durable. Hempcrete is an up and coming building material that is really gaining traction and is a great way to help lower you carbon footprint. What better way to be in harmony with the Earth and still support Cannabis (Ruderalis). Most people would agree that using this as a building material makes sense especially when we live in a time where so many people live below the poverty line are homeless. This makes an ideal building product for third world nations who have experienced war or other natural disasters.

“Why use hempcrete instead of concrete?

Modern day building materials are either mined from the earth or harvested from centuries old forests. Hemp crops can be harvested annually in perpetuity. One acre of hemp provides as much paper as 4.1 acres of trees. Considering the trees take decades to grow and hemp takes about 4 months, the advantages become clear. In some areas of the US, you can grow more than one crop of hemp a year.”

Cannabis Bill To Protect States Rights

Cannabis Bill To Protect States Rights

When it comes to protecting states rights….where do you look? What bills are in place that can help keep the Cannabis industry alive in the states where it has passed? Will a republican controlled government kill any bill that offers states rights to the pioneering states that have legalized Cannabis?

“These are the questions we have to ask when we are considering how to protect each state where medical and recreational Cannabis is legal. Helping that fight is Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (D-Ca.), who introduced House Bill 975 (opens as a PDF), also known as the “Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2017.” The bill, which has bipartisan support from seven Democrats and seven Republicans, would seek to clearly protect the rights of states that have chosen to legalize medical and/or recreational pot.”

The other half of the formula is the money behind the marijuana industry. Cannabis research firm ArcView Market Research recently reported that North American legal pot sales totaled $6.9 billion in 2016, up 34% from the previous year. Yet, $46.4 billion in sales last year still came from the black market, implying that the industry has plenty of work — and opportunity — ahead.
