From 2000 to 2015, half a million people died from prescription drug overdoses, and stories continue to roll in daily about the lives claimed by prescription and non-prescription drug overdoses. Cannabis, however, is not only excluded from the drug overdose list, it has actually been shown to reduce the use of dangerous prescription drugs.
Raw cannabis is considered by many experts as a dietary essential. As a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, some classify it as one of the most important plants on earth. The biggest benefits from the plant may come not by smoking it, but rather by consuming it in its raw and natural form.

Dr. Abrams is widely known for his research on medical cannabis applications. “Unfortunately, it carries with it a long and not so long history of being a persecuted plant,” he added.
Most doctors no longer contend the medicinal value of cannabis, as there are hundreds of scientific studies that prove it, making the point difficult to argue.

It is these substances – cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – which give the cannabis plant its medicinal properties.
Thanks to extensive research, we have discovered that cannabis is effective in treating a wide variety of illnesses, including chronic pain, seizures and PSTD. Some would even argue that cannabis can treat cancer, with many individuals curing cancer with cannabis oil. Yet, it is rarely pointed out that cannabis is also a potential preventative medicine for some very common health problems.
Below are several examples of scientific research that show the preventative properties of cannabis…..

Apart from flying in the face of the belief that cannabis damages brain cells, why should we care whether something is neuroprotective or not? The death of brain cells is a natural part of the ageing process. Cells…Read more
