Marijuana: a life saving medicine?

What is CBD oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is being scientifically investigated for various reasons.

There are over 60 Different Cannabinoids in Marijuana and for decades farmers were focusing on the psychoactive component THC.

However, now strains have emerged that have almost no THC but very high levels of CBD.

The Medical Benefits of CBD are abundant, especially when we talk about use cases like Anticonvulsant.


Medical Properties of CBD Effects
Antiemetic Reduces nausea and vomiting
Anticonvulsant Suppresses seizure activity
Antipsychotic Combats psychosis disorders
Anti-inflammatory Combats inflammatory disorders
Anti-oxidant Combats neurodegenerative disorders
Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer Combats tumor and cancer cells
Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant Combats anxiety and depression disorders


The success stories with children like Charlotte in Colorado are pressing States to approve CBD oil as a prescribed medicine:

Like many children, Charlotte was having her first seizure during the first few months of life.

In her first few years she was having hundreds of seizures a week and there was no medicine that was helping.

Her health continued to decline.

This is called Dravet Syndrome, and there is no medication that helps at all.

Charlotte lost the ability to walk, talk and eat and was having 300 Grand Mal Seizures a week.

Her heart stopped multiple times.

When they launched medical marijuana it was not easy to get doctors to sign off on such a young patient having medical marijuana.

However, they were able to get doctors to agree, and the results were worth it.

After her first dose things changed immediately.

The next week after she took it she didn’t have another seizure.

They got the dose to 3 to 4 mg of oil per pound of the girl’s body weight, specifically oil that was low THC, but high CBD.

Her seizures went from 300 a week, to 3 to 4 times per month. She is now a healthy happy little girl and growing more each day.

Charlotte is not the only one, and there are countless other medical benefits of this type of medicine.

Marijuana is no longer a conversation about allowing people to get “high”, but life saving medicine that offers a variety of health benefits that works better than anything pharmaceutical companies have been able to create.cbd

Most of the CBD oil out there is produced from industrial hemp.

However, hemp is a weed that can pull toxins from the soil, so be cautious who you purchase it from and pay attention to where it is legal from a state perspective.

Currently 15 States have approved the use of CBD oil:

Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Idaho, New York and Wisconsin.

More are being voted on now.

Here is the Coalition for changing the laws: 2015-09-10 11.34.47

Many Republicans and Democrats support this bill and you can too.
