The Cannabis Business is a Positive Alternative

The Cannabis Business is a Positive Alternative The cannabis business is a positive alternative but there are still risks involved, alongside every opportunity. Business is well aware that the new medical cannabis industry holds plenty of scope for investment. But it is still early days and it is still a bit too early to commit fully to a cannabis venture, say some business owners. Funding a new firm that is not successful in the competitiveness of the industry could be a negative. But the cannabis business is a positive alternative if the companies are set up professionally and take every aspect of cannabis seriously: growing, manufacturing products, marketing, distribution, dispensing and packaging. Cannabis businesses still need to follow strict regulations and test all raw cannabis they obtain to sell as is or as a tincture, oil, capsule, e-juice and other edible. Where Does Cannabis Stand Legally? Cannabis has been legalised in 29 states for medical use and there is approval for recreational cannabis use in 8 states. But still cannabis is classed as a Schedule 1 drug which makes investment in cannabis a bit shaky. Banks and large finance houses cannot invest in cannabis or even assist start up companies […]

You Can Avoid Contaminated Cannabis Oil With These Easy Steps

You Can Avoid Contaminated Cannabis Oil With These Easy Steps Cannabis in various forms is increasingly available as laws start to change. But you can still avoid contaminated cannabis oil with these easy steps. Use your common sense when purchasing any cannabis products. The best cannabis oil is blended with an organic carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil.  The best way to check contaminated cannabis is to know what pure, untouched cannabis looks like. Easy Steps to Follow Do a visual check – look for a strange colour, inconsistent appearance and mould which is an unusual whitish grainy element on raw cannabis. Check stem and flowers and do not use if you see mould. Taste the raw cannabis – sample a tiny bit of the cannabis. It should taste strong and organic, earthy and not chemical. Be careful when you taste it as contaminated cannabis can make you sick. Check the ash if you are smoking – the ash does not flick off easily and becomes hard if there is a chemical or strange substance in the cannabis. The ash should not be a strange colour and should be light and flaky. Smell the cannabis – of the […]

Giving Medical Cannabis to Patients with Autism

Giving Medical Cannabis to Patients with Autism Should we be giving medical cannabis to patients with autism? Most patients with autism are children, as this disease raises its head from around age 2 to 3. There are adults living with autism, that they probably contracted when they were toddlers. There are no clinical studies on this pertinent subject yet but there are many parents out there already giving medical cannabis to patients with autism – their children. Doctors require evidence that medical cannabis works to treat autism, but no one is sure how it works as clinical trials are lacking – it is a viscious circle. Chatting to parents who have tried medical cannabis for children with autism, it sounds very positive that the natural remedy actually does work. It works to make children happier, healthier and less alone. That should be good enough and enough food for thought? One mother decided to give her child with autism hemp oil. This cannabis oil consists of cannabidiol (CBD) which is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid from cannabis, and a natural health remedy. This child spoke his first words after his first dose of hemp oil and after only 3 weeks could communicate in […]

Medical Cannabis Can Treat ALS

Medical Cannabis Can Treat ALS The wording in this heading is vital: medical cannabis can treat ALS. Note that nowhere did we mention “cure” as there is no known cure for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). But using medical cannabis to treat ALS can be done. It can lengthen life spans and provide comfort from symptoms that can be debilitating. These symptoms include wasting away while muscles deteriorate, weakness, pain, drooling, spasticity and failure to breathe. What Exactly is ALS? ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is the most common disease involving deterioration of the motor neuron system.  A motor neuron is a neuron whose cell body is located in the motor cortex, brainstem or the spinal cord. They directly or indirectly control muscles and glands. ALS is the destruction of this control of muscles and movement of the arms, legs, mouth, and respiratory system. Patients are usually given 3 to 5 years to live, but some do live 10 years or longer. Medical cannabis can treat ALS, ensuring a better quality life and a longer life. There are stories of people with ALS who have lived on for 25 years thanks to medical cannabis treatment! Causes of ALS and […]

Would You Give Your Children Cannabis Oil?

Would You Give Your Children Cannabis Oil? Would you give your children cannabis oil if they had a chronic disease? Would you give your children cannabis oil if they were negatively affected by pharmaceuticals they had to take for something serious? Would you give your children cannabis oil if you knew it would help them focus at school? Would you give your children cannabis oil if everyone was against it and only you believed in it? The world is changing so fast – children increasingly get adult diseases and medication is changing to treat them. Children also get cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, depression and arthritis. How sad. Giving your child pharmaceuticals is heart-breaking when you know how these can damage their organs. Have you ever thought about giving your children cannabis oil? Now is the time to educate yourself about this increasingly popular medication – which is also safe. Cannabidiol (CBD) is Safe Enough For Children Many parents only consider giving their children cannabis oil when all other options have been exhausted. And for many parents, treating their children with cannabis oil remains a very controversial issue. The best route to take is to start with the gentle cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), […]

Treatment Protocol Using Cannabis Oil for Ovarian Cancer

Treatment Protocol Using Cannabis Oil for Ovarian Cancer When a woman contracts ovarian cancer, she wants to know the treatment protocol using cannabis oil. This is an alternative therapy that has no side effects and deals with the symptoms and causes of the disease. Getting ovarian cancer causes depression and anxiety and the cannabis oil treatment can be incorporated into the protocol of general treatment. Many ovarian patients are recommended surgery immediately they are diagnosed. But doctors say only a few women can actually be treated with only surgery – chemotherapy is vital as a follow-up treatment. Women who are in stages 1 to 4 of ovarian cancer can also be considered for clinical trials. Holistic Health Treatment Protocol The treatment protocol for using cannabis oil for ovarian cancer, however, involves an holistic approach, from diet to mental health and then the oil. Advocates of this treatment recommend an alkaline diet of organic fruit and vegetables mainly. Add to this green tea, grapefruit juice and mangoes. These three ingredients clear and activate the cannabinoid receptors in the body.

The WHO Agrees Medical Cannabis Does Not Have Dangerous Side Effects

The WHO Agrees Medical Cannabis Does Not Have Dangerous Side Effects In a lengthy and comprehensive document published late in 2017, the World Health Organisation (WHO) agrees that medical cannabis does not have dangerous side effects. This is a huge milestone in the cannabis world as the WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is concerned with international public health. It was on 14 December 2017, to be precise, that the WHO agreed that the cannabis cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) be removed from controlled substances registers worldwide. According to the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD), pure organic CBD does not seem to promote addiction of have harmful side effects. CBD on its own is not scheduled as opposed to cannabis per se. But when CBD is transformed into an extract to be used as a medical therapy, it is incorporated into the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. So, while the WHO agrees that medical cannabis does not have dangerous side effects, it also promotes more research into the use of cannabis oil as a therapy. Should Medical Cannabis Be Legal? Some countries have legalised medical cannabis, removing it from schedules but still subjecting it to strict […]

The Benefits of Cannabis Oil For Epilepsy

The Benefits of Cannabis Oil for Epilepsy After years of research and studies into the benefits of cannabis oil for epilepsy, scientists are approving the use of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), to treat epilepsy. Medical cannabis is a great alternative therapy for epileptic patients who are tired of the side effects from pharmaceutical drugs and who want natural relief from seizures. Some doctors are adding cannabis oil to existing medication for people who have seizures which then subdues the side effects of their daily drug intake. Their conclusion is that the CBD-infused cannabis oil benefits epilepsy as it is safe and natural. Cannabis Oil as A Therapy for Seizures For nearly 200 years, cannabis oil has been used to treat and prevent seizures but it is only recently, in modern times, that the use of cannabis oil to treat epilepsy has come to light as a common discussion. In countries and states where medical cannabis is legal, scientists and doctors are able to research the benefits of CBD for epilepsy – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is not a good cannabinoid for seizures as it is psychoactive. CBD is also an anti-convulsant and anti-inflammatory, with the added benefits of being a good […]

Legal Update – Cannabis Oil in South Africa

Legal Update – Cannabis Oil in South Africa For a legal update on the latest cannabis oil news in South Africa, read on. There has been a lack of news since the March 2017 court case in the Western Cape when government deemed it permissible to grow and use cannabis in the privacy of your own home. But nowhere else, and not on a commercial scale. So now, the famous Dagga Couple are appealing the decision – which could take as long as two years in total for a final decision to be made. While we wait for a legal update on the cannabis oil situation in South Africa, it is still illegal.

Licenses to Cultivate and Produce Cannabis are Scarce While we wait, take note that not one license has been issued for anyone to grow, own or use or trade in cannabis in South Africa.  One person only has won a license to research industrial cannabis […]

Treat Skin Cancer with Cannabis Cream

Treat Skin Cancer with Cannabis Cream In a hot country like Australia, melanoma skin cancer is rife and there, more people are wanting to treat skin cancer with cannabis cream. In fact, researchers in Australia are collaborating with Israelis who are making medical cannabis products. The University of Canberra took the plunge and signed a million dollar deal with an Australian medical cannabis supplier, to manufacture a unique medical grade cannabis treatment for skin cancer. Researchers aim to treat skin cancer with cannabis cream, as an add-on to conventional ways of treating melanoma. More studies must be done in the interim, to prove that cannabis oils do treat skin cancer – and very well.

Many people have told their stories far and wide about how they used cannabis creams to treat their skin cancers, successfully. Melanoma is the Worst Skin Cancer Melanoma is the most serious skin cancer […]

Diabetes Benefits From Cannabis Oil

Diabetes Benefits From Cannabis Oil How does diabetes benefit from cannabis oil, you may wonder? The first step is to understand exactly what a) diabetes is, and b) what cannabis oil is. Cannabis has been used as a medical supplement for centuries and originates from Asia. Now various countries have legalised medical cannabis, but cannabis in general is not legal in many parts of the world. This is because one chemical compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) makes you high. Other cannabinoids are therapeutic and are non-psychoactive and these include cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN). For this article, we are talking about CBD and how it benefits diabetes. What is Diabetes? Diabetes is a group of diseases which have something in similar – high blood sugar or glucose. Type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease which results in the pancreas not being able to produce insulin anymore and usually affects children. Type 2 diabetes is also a chronic disease where the blood sugar is very high but the patient does not experience many other symptoms and usually it affects adults. Type 1 cannot be reversed but type 2 can. And before diabetes 2 breaks out, it can be called prediabetes as the […]

Cannabis is Legally for Sale in California Now Good news for cannabis growers, suppliers and users is that cannabis is now legally for sale in California, United States of America. This adds another state to the low number of 7 states which sell medical cannabis legally in the USA.
