shame Pharma in treat to hemp to from Big puts epilepsy, Texas marijuana as legalized CBD oil
And this ad campaign is just the beginning. He lives near Edna, a community northeast of Victoria, with a population just shy of 6, people.
Louderback said he worries the ultimate motivation behind these ads is to make recreational marijuana legal in Texas. But, realistically, he said there is already a lot for lawmakers to tackle ahead of the session. You know it seems that the Texas law should be very ashamed of themselves for putting so many kids in JAIL for smoking pot. There has been many of poor young souls destroyed because of the way that Texas has been towards this stupid horrible law.
The homes they the state of Texas has destroyed by using a law to their benefit. Benefits easy to bust and a lot of money to be made Hell a no brained. I took a couple puffs at night, very nice, relaxed, slept, no nightmares, no side effects. Its great virtue is that of fighting cancer cells!
My mother died of this disease Now I have an aunt my moms sister who is starting to decline into this abiss of dementia She has memory impairment paranoia ,angry outbursts Agitation etc Every day seems to get worse I just started to see some documentaries and research on this oil How does one get it if your state does not yet recognize it as a treatment.
You can reach out to me at http: The one person who is using my product but with some THC is noticing quite a bit of relief with behavioral symptoms but not with cognition as of yet. She is taking about 7mg of tincture a day. And I have a superior product. I live in France and I would like to give tais treatment to my father. Where can I buy thc and bdc oils?
I tried to send something to Belgium once and it never arrived. I guess it sat at customs for several weeks and was returned 2 months later to me in a box that was destroyed. If you can figure out how and are willing to take the risk of it not making it you can contact me again. I know they have sativex in England in spray form. Any chance you can get some of that for her??? Its a US based company, doing business online, without any prescription required. Although they may not ship Internationally, they are terrific people, who will offer advice, if they can.
Some of the most predatory people out there. Get your facts straight, before you presume to weigh in! Again, get your facts straight!
The country just below Spain. I have dementia so it name is not here, yet I have traveled to over 50 countries by oneself. For prevention THC is important.
Let me first offer my sincere sympathies, Elfie. I purchase my oils from Bluebird Botanicals. It is the THC component which is so reviled. I wish to restate, emphatically, that Marijuana is NOT addictive, certainly not so in the implied physio-biological sense.
Dale Lewis, please contact me. I have a father who is 63 and has been diagnosed with severe progressive dementia. He lives in the DC area and is getting worse by the day. Can you give me some info about using medical marijuana to help my dad.
Elle, read my posts from today about how I use Cannabis for dementia. If you have any questions, please feel free to sent me a post. CBD helps me remember yesterday. My phone number , on the West coast. I have been undercard for two years. Elfie, I use medical marijuana for the beginning stages of dementia.
Read my post, I just posted about 5 or 10 minutes ago. Hi my name is Linda, I live in England! We have bin told now that medication she was on for her restless legs which was something totally different was making the shaking worse. But yet the shaking is part of the dementia. We are now at the end of are tether and was wondering if you could send me any information about marijuana or cannabis oil! We would appreciate any help you could give us! Where is your post. I have same issued with my mom.
Rebecca… I just saw your question today Check your email if possible. You still want the neuro-protectant efficacy of the Sativa while sleeping. Just take a slightly larger amount at night, but; not too much more. Thank you so much in advance. I thought there was nothing to be done, I thought his life was about to end until i caught wind of the special cannabis oil. Thanks to Dr Peter Hurt. I am so happy with how the Cannabis oil have changed the life of my daughter.
Can you send me what you posted for Linda on dementia. I want to get him off these meds because they all have adverse effects. Maybe you could help me out. I would like to know if you got your answers, if you used it on your Mum, and if it worked.
My mum had the same issues! Medical marijuana is really working well on my chronic pain i order some CBD Capsule oil from Dr Peter Hurt and got it deliver to my location safely i recommend you contact him via above for all your health issues. Unfortunately my Mother is in the care of an assisted Living Facility against my wishes, hence I can no longer take part in her needs as far as medications go.
Heavens knows a facility would never prescribe the oils. Something that might actually work, right??? Our medical and pharmaceutical systems suck!! It is all about money!! These Strains helps people with the following: C if you are interested do get back to me via on profile.
My health has improved remarkably all thanks to this good Dr. Please for all your inquiries contact him via call or text as above and experience first hand the quality of his products and services.
Hi Elfie, I just found this site. Sorry your Mom passed from this disease. Now it is my turn. I was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment 3 or 4 years ago and have been able to slow the progress down with diet and exercise. As soon as I was diagnosed, I became a Vegan and started exercising so much that I have destroyed my knees and hip s.
I do not use the drugs that the medical professionals recommend. I tried them for a short time and wan not impressed. Good luck to you and please feel free to respond. Could you advise me regarding the dosage. What we have available in our place is 50mg Cannabis capsule. I get them from a dispensary and I have never thought about the mg.
This regimen has kept me pretty normal during the day. I still do everything I have always done. Drive,take care of the house, grocery shop and prepare meals, pay my own bills etc. If you have a medical marijuana dispensary you go to, talk to them.
I am very fortunate that the one I go to has a Medical Doctor on staff and is able to give me advice on dosage etc. They have to be careful what they advise, but it is very helpful to have their input. Good luck and feel free to contact me if you want to chat. I am only giving my dad 2. I personally do not like the feeling of edibles if you take too much they can make you dizzy. I find the 2. The Puckers candy breaks up easily and tastes like a lemon drop.
My dad likes it a lot and it is helping him sleep through the night for the first time in years. Hello, has anyone seen improvement of the below Alzheimers symptoms with medical marijuana or oils? Please help If we could get her to go to sleep many of these symptoms would be solved. If you can get it, give her THC at night. That should do it. If you get marijauna that she has to smoke have her smoke some a couple of times a day, but especially at night before bed.
I have early stage of dementia mild cognitive impairment , and I have stayed at this stage for quite some time. If you can get it for her, start out with small doses a couple of times a day and see how she tolerates it. When you figure out a dose, then at bedtime give her a bigger dose. If you can also get CBD, give her that a couple of times during the day.
I would be happy to stay in contact with you. If you would like that also, then let me know and maybe we could exchange email addresses or stay in contact through messaging on Facebook. There are 3 to choose from, Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid mix of both. I have ordered a vape and intend to buy resin. I would like to try to prevent the plaque build-up that happens insidiously for years before becoming symptomatic.
For night-time, an Indica dominant hybrid would be better for sleep. Hello Bruce, glad it is of help to her, may I ask where you purchase as I also have health issues and prefer to not take pharmaceuticals, thank you. Now your holy weed lowers cholesterol and blood pressure? I did not realize it lowers cholesterol. I became a Vegan many years ago to help lower my cholesterol. It really did help that much.
I will not take the cholesterol meds. That has helped a great deal. Just recently, I started to feel like I may need more during the day, so I will work on that after the Holidays are over.
You have serious anger management issues, probably best dealt with through hospitalization and a pre-frontal lobotomy. Since entering this thread, your TOTAL contribution has been laughing off the pain of others, and whether you agree or disagree with sometimes desperately sought answers, you might at least respect the obligation to provide evidence for your voluminous gorps.
What a disgusting lunatic, you are… come back and see us after Mommy wipes your nose and powders your Pampers…. That is just rich! I feel you about people pushing a certain product and sure there are predatory ass holes out there but there is also tons of valid studies showing that CBD and thc and other cannabinoids help and or heal a great many things. I am next in line and have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment.
I take CBD 2 times during the day, late morning and late afternoon. I take THC at bedtime. It has helped tremendously! I have been on this regimen for at least a couple of years and I have progresses some, but not enough to change my lifestyle a lot. Cook all of my Husband and my meals. Within just a few months she was gone. She had Ms so she was going anyway, but the psychosis was pure horror for all involved.
And the first thing they should do is seek the advice of an anonymous internet poster with a Google U degree? On a shitty blog that still uses Disqus? Alcohol and cigarettes are physically adictive, far more so than cannabis, but they are completely legal like food.
Your argument has no sense of perspective, whcih often happens when your really have no argument. However, as a former I have now tried several things and none have proven to be addictive for me except sugar. CBD oil has been lifesaving for me to treat severe anxiety — but unlike smoking pot it does not give me an even more urgent desire for the sugar.
Would that be the God you pray to? Your diseases were likely a combination of genetic predisposition and your poor lifestyle choices. I am glad science aided you in your recovery. Preliminary research suggests real efficacy in THC squelching the Alzheimer inducing amyloid plaque at its root. I disagree that cannabis is addictive…. I will say that can be habituating…. Smh … A different strains for a different cures … This is y its illegal.. I have video evidence of her miraculous improvement after we took her out of the mental institute where they had her on loads of very damaging seizure causing meds!!!
We nearly lost her!!! She started singing, dancing and even was able to go to the toilet by herself in just 7weeks on the oil and other beautiful natural medication as well as a very high nutrient dense diet she was on. I have become incredibly desperate and am now trying to raise funds to save my mums life!
I am SO SORRY that your mum had to die in their evil money sucking hands and it is for your mum and others that i MUST raise this money to prove this is possible and that people like my mum and yours do not have to suffer a horrible death! My mum is in South Africa in that mental institute where they tie her to a chair all day and violate her body!!! Do you know of anyone that could help us? Or is there anyone on this chat that could help us? Its been almost 4weeks since i started her campaign and we are no where close to the amount we need!!!
Most people in my life will not approve of the oil so this is why i am reaching out to people like you and like mindeds now… in hope that something might actually happen! Im even thinking of contacting cannabis researchers…. The only thing Marijuana has been proven to be dangerous too? Was in a car accident in july..
My life just came back to normal no more pills. Similarly, tolerance, withdrawal, and physical dependency are entirely different aspects of different kinds of addiction… but in terms of balancing safety and efficacy, the likelihood of tolerance, physical withdrawal, lethality of overdose, cancer potential, metabolite toxicity, biochemical interactions are kindof high up on the list.
Can any cannabinoids really improve Alzheimer symptoms? But to prevent research and squelch hope for big pharma greed is indeed preposterous. In Canada Diamorphine heroin is used as a post operative pain medication in some cases.
Oxycontin and heroin are both derived from the same plant. Oxycontin is a synthetic opiate, or opioid. They are the same. Not the same because one is pharmaceutical grade and the other is street grade. With Oxycontin people know exactly what it is and what it will do and Heroin being a street drug primarily is cut with all sorts of things that are awful, and many times unknown.
This is an important distinction that must be made when comparing the two drugs. Its greater worth is as an agent for improving brain functioning and activity, with one, notable physiological exception. As a survivor of multiple chemotherapy treatments, earlier in my life, I can speak to its incredible properties, to relieve nausea! It changes the perception of the experience of pain in the mind.
It allows one to observe pain from a distance, not be consumed by it. Before you express more uninformed mind-vomit, google how opiates chemically interrupt pain transmission, as opposed to cannabis, which effects the mind that processes the input.
Otherwise, continue to embarrass yourself. Your friends and family think your nuts so all you have is this silly page. You are projecting Google it. Not much for learning, are you? So many bullshit statements made in one paragraph. Could it be you are a big pharma troll? Your motives are suspect. Who fears science but those who may lose profit? That must be it! The pharmaceutical industry would LOVE nothing more than to research marijuana.
You seem quite uneducated. I, however, do work in the profession. What, then, is your specialty? That is a condition, not a specialty. I work in interventional radiology. I just looked over your posts against the world. You are quite angry…you must be suffering. Your energy would be better spent elsewhere. You do know that cannabinoids possess neuroprotectant properties right?
There are patents stating such studies. That was quite funny. Not all are uneducated. You sound smart, you know this. How about kjnowing that acetaminophen caused liver damage when combined with alcohol but allowing nyquil to be marketed for 15 years AFTER this was discovered.
The facts eluded them for 15 years apparently while profits were taken. The medical community knows that combining a set of medicine and alcohol can cause liver damage. They do not dictate what Proctor and Gamble sells or how they market. They also do not have control over the ignorance of consumers. Although, I think of the Medical Community in a different context, their ability to get their facts right can still be skewed by factors other than cash, cash, and more cash. Further, the Neo-Conservative, Christian Revivalists, see Marijuana as being a plague, straight from the bowels of Hell, while thinking nothing of sharing a few beers during the picnic, after Sunday services, or firing up the still, hidden out in the woods.
Pot may be addictive, I will not argue that, however the prescribed medications are also highly addictive. If you were to stop taking anti-psychotics or benzos you could have serious and possibly life threatening withdrawal symptoms. With pot you would probably just be a little grumpy.
Any stimulus that functions as reinforcement will almost invariably increase the probability of the behavior producing such a source of reinforcement. You simply miss marijuana as you would miss other non-addictive reinforcers. Does he exhibit behavior like a heroin addict during withdrawal? The same is true of marijuana. One might speculate that the major reason that marijuana is not addictive is because of its long half-life. Are the antidepressants, that are prescribed regularly, addictive?
With all the altzheimers going around in the US millions there are almost no effective treatments, let alone treatments that treat causes and not symptoms of the disease.
Pigheaded stupidity and greed will delay the implementation of this, but many are already treatiing it. The plant has been used as a medicine for 10, years. The drug war has malignant intent. No one with ALZ should be afraid of police for using cannabis oil as medicine. It is the only thing free of harm that restores cognition. People quit talking to us long before we can not speak, and most communication is thru facial expression and body language. The researchers in USA do not want to know how it works because their funding is based on worn out wrong theory.
I will not give in to this disease like my Mother and Grandmother did. As soon as I was diagnosed with MCI, I became a Vegan should have done that a long time ago and started exercising so much I have destroyed my knees. I really have not progressed a great deal since I was diagnosed several years ago.
We have no plans to move so as long as I am living in a Medical Marijuana state, I will continue to use it. The dispensary I go to actually has an MD on staff, which is really good because he can be helpful with respect to dosing and strains.
So far my life has not changed dramatically and I truly believe it is because of Cannabis. Sorry but l disagree. Can you honestly say that you may not have been subject to such behaviors and ailments, had you never been a smoker? This is outright false. As a long time marijuana user I can tell you the night sweats, rage-induction and vertigo experienced during withdrawal are awful. To each his own, JM!
You are little more than a contemptible clod. Cannabis is not physically addicting like the hard drugs it is classified with a governmental mistake made by law enforcement not doctors , however it is mildly addicting in psychological terms.
Most of us do NOT have an issue other than we like it! Some do have an issue, and there the best thing to say may be: Hi Dale, It is so amazing to see that everyday more and more people know the truth, no doubt we will spread all over this planet! Dale, It is and always has been about the money and control. All the words used to put Cannabis in a negative light are now being turned around with science and the truth. The US government was able to obtain patents for the medicine in Cannabis through the Dept.
America is the Land of Hypocrisy! America Land of the Free? To get back to the previous post abut it being addictive. I need it for my illness because it really does a decent job of lessening my symptoms.
Years ago, when I used it I wanted it because I liked the way that it made me feel and wanted to keep doing it to feel good. I have been addicted for years. I want to give up but find it very hard. I smoked weed for yrs and quit when I got tired of it.
I never became addicted. Now sugar that is another issue——highly addictive at least to me. To me any addictive feelings one may get from Cannabis is there body simply telling them to not stop doing good to me. There is a lot of great Medical Cannabis news coming out but sadly it must all be imported because of the lame ass prohibition still on Cannabis.
Thanks, I have been doing a lot of research and I am tired of the lack of Freedom we have in America because of the Drug War. It affects everyone negatively! The US Governemnt owns the patent U. Patent to the medicine in Cannabis for a reason!
Pat, I am happy you are able to get some relief. He gets relief and comfort from smoking cannabis and smoking cigarettes separately. I am 74 yrs of age and when I am not longer fit enough to look after him, they will put my grandson in a home and take away the cannabis because it has a detrimental affect on the brain he only has a few years left to live! The care homes are all non-smoking now so he will not be able to smoke cigarettes either!
How bloody cruel is this? Cannabis helps one deal with pain better than opioids. The side effects of analgesics are legion, they are addicting, and have to be taken on a scheduled basis, and if not taken as prescribed, the pain comes back with a vengeance. If you stop the use of cannabis, there are no withdrawal symptoms.
One who has lived through the experience. And considering all the health benefits, and lack of harmful effects.. Sadly in America more people are killed by legal prescription drugs taken illegally than all the illicit drugs put together! America is the Land of Great Hypocrisy where the legendary lies from our government over many years have been responsible for countless deaths.
Isreal leads the World with knowledge in this area… http: When campaigning for a pro-pot gubernatorial candidate, The niche I carved out for myself was to contact every PA County Medical Society. The phones might as well be answered by the AMA. I got into it because I have a background in research some, neurological.
I have Dementia and hit the books looking for an answer for myself. My first call to a County Medical Society, I got the director. How can I help? In the real world, these scientifically founded professionals keep abreast of the newest findings.
That is, if THC really does help the patients with their dementia. There are no addictive properties or long term negative effects with Cannabis. Quit painkiller opiates or Nicotine cold turkey. All this s fear mongering reefermadness bullshit is slowing down the advancement of canna based, life saving medicines.
People are suffering and all articles like this and prohibition in general are doing, is continuing their needles suffering. Shatter or wax works better for me than smoking cannabis, with no smoke and no noticeable weed smell. Shatter is part of the overdose culture that stems from alcohol culture all over the world. It helped her sleep and calmed her considerably, no hallucinations and also made her very hungry…She was currently taking Effexor which had some calming effects but the agitation was still present unlike with the cannabis…I am going to discuss the possibility with her Dr….
There is no current treatment. She is 80, so we are not concerned about potential long-term effects or addiction. At her age, the immediate challenges of managing this disease take priority. We fully support any regulations that aim to inhibit the misuse and exploitation of otherwise beneficial medical marijuana programs. So a couple tokes a night for five years. So I can say that marijuana was a lot better than any pill they have out today.
Thank you for sharing your first hand experience. Will inform my children… It is in their bloodline. Hope the good outweighs the bad. My father has dementia from a bad fall and he hit his head. After that he has gotten worse and worse. He is like Dr. Okay one minute and angry the next minute. I am thinking about trying medical marijuana for him.
His behavior in the late afternoon early evening is getting very hard to manage. He throws his walker at people and is very restless constantly getting up and down out of bed. We all need help! Cannabis plant is best. A friend grew it, when I put a snapped off, dried, raw bud in my mouth and slept with it tucked in there snugged down between teeth and lip after many months of coughing myself awake, I finally and instantly stopped coughing and slept beautifully.
Woke up rested, and feeling mellow and happy. Hemp oil too, has many health benefits and you can buy it in Tesco…. She has ALZ and her physician has tried every prescription available to treat her.
My Mom and our family were living a nightmare until this treatment! It slows her mind down enough for her to relax and stop the constant fidgeting. She also sleeps much better. This disease is horrible for a patient but it is absolutely devastating for their loved ones. I am so thrilled to read this about your dad. I applaud you for thinking outside of the box and doing this for your dad.
Sounds like trusting your instincts is serving you well. Bravo for using your own initiative. Frankincense, cannabis hemp generally , colloidal silver are just a few of natures answers to many ailments. Thank you for sharing..
I want to make edibles. Music has been our drug of choice. Thanks for your story. I contacted HIV from my wife, my husband died 2 years ago from this disease, my life was gradually coming to an end living with this deadly disease daily, i did all i could to get cured from this disease but all was in vain, until i saw a post on health forum about a DR called Dr. Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother etc, etc. My Neurologist has been very pleased with how I am doing and will I continue unless it stops being helpfull.
How did you arrive at yours? I am sorry that this reply has taken so long, but I do not check this site very often. If you find or have found a good clinic, they should be able to help. Here in Michigan the dispensaries cannot advise on dosage etc.
If you are still have questions, let me know. P vaugn, could you please contact me? I would be interested in hearing more about how this works for you as you move forward…. I have tried co for my father, my prob is I do not know if I am giving enough or not. Of course, my mother is very skeptical about the whole thing. I just need to know where to go from here.
The doctor here in fla will not agree of benefits or least I have not found one that does. Any information would be great. Thanks for any information. There was a great study just came out from Salk Institute that offers very plausible model.
I would like to try the oil. Just do a Google search for canna oil. There is tons of info out there. They need to keep them illegal so they can keep the bodies flowing into the private prison network, which their top brass have ownership in. Go look at how many of them have consulting revenue on their tax returns. DEA full of crap do they think the public is dumb?
Glad pharmaceuticals pay you. Marijuana is DEA cash cow. Sunshine and the air we breathe is more harmful than Cannabis, did these judges not educate themselves, or are the being paid off?
Welcome to the USA, the most hypocritical country on earth. See and read for yourself. The title of this article is completely inaccurate. Nothing of the sort. The Farm Bill is very clear and leaves no room for misinterpretation. Congress ignored them, and so the DEA is ignoring Congress. I suggest this article misreads the court decision. The key argument was rejected on solely procedural grounds, i.
The farm act may not be as protective to states and CBD producers as many think. My understanding is farm act didnt give greenlight for straight to commerialization. It allows for regulated coordinated grow and research with farmers processors and universities; and use and market research, not to grow to sell. That is, all the states making CBD and allowing it to be sold is doing so illegally federally.
You know, since we have CB receptors in our bodies and nursing mothers produce CBD in breast milk, should we arrest all nursing mothers or outlaw breast feeding? Seed, stalk AND leaves. Remember your pain free days filled with fun and happiness.
Why wonder when did your money go to Cheetos at 3 am and Pizza charge r us? This was a disappointment to some who were hoping that the Ninth Circuit would issue an historic ruling akin to its order that the DEA could not prohibit the importation of non-psychoactive hemp products into the U. However, this very short decision should not be read as a substantive setback for the U. Contrary to some early reports, this ruling does NOT classify hemp-derived cannabidiol CBD as a controlled substance, nor does it signify that the popular hemp product is federally illegal.
Indeed, the ruling has no legal or practical impact on hemp or hemp products. The Ninth Circuit declared that decision has no precedential value — meaning it is not binding on other courts or future judicial decisions.
The Ninth Circuit ruled that the HIA had failed to meet a widely-accepted principle of administrative law: Perhaps even more significantly, during the litigation process, the DEA admitted that the marijuana extract rule did not apply to hemp. Hemp Roundtable stands ready to defend that principle if ever the DEA tries to interfere with state pilot programs — or the interstate sale or transport of hemp from those programs — in contravention of clear federal law, as confirmed in the recent Omnibus Spending Law and discussed in this Congressional amicus brief.
Accordingly, we ask all hemp supporters to contact their Senators and Congressmen, and urge them to co-sponsor S. This is an excellent summation. Addressing CBD, I believe, it is imperative that each company; each brand and each SKU within that brand and or category have Full Track-ability from seed to shelf and that information is readily available.
A process of best practices and certification by an approved facility will go far in the ability to effectively manufacture; market and sell CBD product as well as Full Spectrum. What I would like to point out is that our country needs hemp production overall and the dialogs seem to be All about CBD.
As a group, I believe we need to look at the whole plant. I also believe that lobbying for legislation based on the whole plant and the industry as a whole will deliver the result that is beneficial of multiple groups of Americans. It is not just about CBD. I do support CBD and believe in its qualities and the need for it. However, I look at the big picture and want the USA Hemp farmers and manufactures to be able to provide sustainable jobs and incomes for our citizens.
And the opportunity for consumers to use all of the Hemp products and live a healthy Hemp Lifestyle. Epidiolex is a CBD-based anti-epileptic medication that not only has been approved by 29 other countries, but has also been highly touted by an FDA advisory panel.
It is up for review on June 27th for approval.
