In the United States, cannabis is legal for recreational use in 11 states while 33 other states allow some form of medical use. One would think that with this widespread legalization, which seems to be speeding up, that police officers would start concentrating their efforts elsewhere and arrest actual criminals who hurt people — not kidnap and cage innocent people for using a plant. Sadly, however, the incentives for arresting cannabis users are too addictive and the police state marches on, laying waste to all the lives it touches along the way.

(Prepare For Change) Epilepsy is a significant medical condition affecting approximately 1% of the American population. The disorder causes unprovoked and recurrent seizures. This medical condition occurs due to many other therapeutic factors, not only one’s genetic composition. Individuals who have Alzheimer’s can also suffer from seizures. People with a brain injury or who have suffered from a stroke are most likely to suffer from seizures.
Epileptic seizures disrupt an individual’s life. Once they occur, you lose control of your body, and you can suffer further injuries as a result. To reduce such impacts, individuals receive antiepileptic prescriptions for seizure management. However, these medications have severe side effects. →

Dr. Allan Frankel, a board-certified internist at GreenBridge Medical in Santa Monica, California, has treated patients with medical cannabis for the past 13 years. The first time I interviewed him back in 2014, cannabis laws in the U.S. were quite different, so in this interview, he provides us with a much-needed update. Not only is recreational use of cannabis now legal in California and several other states, but hemp is also legal nationwide, thanks to a change in the farm bill passed at the end of 2018. As noted by Frankel: →

(The Free Thought Project) Marshall County, TN — In millions of instances across the ostensible Land of the Free, people from young to old have their lives turned upside down and ruined after they are caught in possession of a plant. Despite marijuana being legal in a growing number of states, marijuana arrests actually increased in 2018. The low hanging fruit of arresting entirely harmless and innocent marijuana users provides for a constant stream of revenue and justifies the existence of the police state and predatory court system. One woman in Tennessee, however, just showed us all what can happen when you refuse to lay down and let the bureaucratic gear of tyranny grind you to pieces when the government catches you with weed. →

(Prepare For Change) By Aashay: Cannabidiol has become immensely popular across the world, in the recent past. In previous years, it was used as an effective self-medication for Dravet syndrome in children. As of now, it is now used to treat wide range of medical conditions and lifestyle diseases. The cannabinoid CBD, a non-psychoactive isomer of the more infamous tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is available in a growing number of administration modes, but the most commonly known is CBD oil. There are currently dozens, if not hundreds, of producers and sellers of CBD oils active in the market, and their number is increasing exponentially.

Among the many extraordinary medicinal and health-bringing properties of cannabis, new research pinpoints two of the plant’s flavonoids with potential to completely change the way we treat pain.
First identified back in 1985, cannflavins A and B are molecules with potent anti-inflammatory properties; the original 1985 research showed that gram for gram, these cannflavins were nearly 30 times more effective than aspirin.
The cannabis plant has over 400 chemicals and at least 60 different cannabinoids1 — chemical compounds the human body is uniquely equipped to respond to. Of the two primary chemicals, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), only THC has psychoactive properties.
THC is the compound in cannabis triggering a “high,” whereas CBD has no psychoactive effects. Both compounds, and other phytochemicals found in medical marijuana plants, have a long list of beneficial effects on health.
