A shortlist of False Sayings About CBD

  1. CBD is for medical reasons alone: A lot of people think that CBD is for medical use alone and THC is for recreational use. But things don’t work like that. Of course, there are so many medical applications of CBD but there are some recreational users that enjoy strains where CBD balances the psychoactive effects of THC nicely to create a relaxing and alert effect at the same time.

  2. CBD converts to THC in the body: There has been a widespread rumor that the gastric acids in the digestive system of the body convert CBD to THC. But Ricardo Oliveira of LifetNews.com explains that as far as scientific research is concerned, there is no human enzyme that can convert CBD to THC. Clinical trials that measured the content of marijuana in the blood has never seen anything to show that CBD converts to THC in the body. Patients that use CBD have not reported any THC effects.

  3. Scientific research has shown that CBD does not work: This is not true. The DEA has a strong anti-CBD stance that scares away scientists and investors that will like to research further on the role of CBD in healthcare. There has been in vitro research that shows that CBD has antitumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, antioxidant, antioxidant, anti-psychotic and analgesic properties.

  4. CBD works better itself: CBD can be isolated but there is nothing to prove that it works better on its own. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam from Israel discovered that when in many medical cannabis strains the Cannabinoids compounds were combined and worked synergistically to increase the healing power of the binding molecule. This was called the entourage effect and shows that the usage of whole marijuana plants is more effective than isolated elements.

  5. CBD is a sedative: From a technical point of view, CBD is not a sedative. There is another cannabidiol called Myrcene that produces a sedative effect in marijuana. Research has shown that low and moderate quantities of CBD increase focus and alertness. Insomnia may even occur. But when CBD is consumed heavily, there is a relaxing full-body sedation that can be regulated by changing the THC ratio and dosages.

  6. CBD is the same everywhere: There have been various misleading and untrusted CBD products in the market. Various states in the country have improved regulation, quality control and transparency but enforcement has not been strict. The providers may not be legally allowed to ship the products, they can still ship them easily. These products are not well regulated and so their quality, authenticity and performance cannot be validated. There is a need for third-party laboratory testing, content level checking, test of strength, test of ingredients, seed-to-sale tracking etc.

  7. CBD-only regulation works well for patients: This is not true. There are 18 states where CBD-only marijuana has been approved. A lot of these states indicate the medical conditions that CBD-only marijuana can treat. But the lists of diseases that are allowed are not consistent so there are some patients who need these medications that are excluded from the lists. In general, whole plant therapies are better for treating some illnesses that cannot be treated by CBD-only medicine.

A lot of medical patients have benefited a lot from CBD. A lot of them have received CBD-based treatments for epilepsy, migraines, depression, general anxiety, insomnia, appetite issues, PTSD, chronic pain etc. There are strains where CBD balances with THC to add a relaxing effect to the psychoactive effects of THC. But due to the general misconceptions about marijuana, there has been very little research on it and a lot of people remain ignorant.

Understanding How THC Kills Cancer in Humans

Understanding How THC Kills Cancer in Humans

First let’s look at what keeps cancer cells alive, then we will come back and examine
how THC unravels cancer’s aliveness.
In every cell there is a family of interconvertible sphingolipids that specically manage the life and death of that cell. is pro le of factors is called the “Sphingolipid Rheostat.” If ceramide (a signaling metabolite of sphingosine-1-phosphate) is high, then cell death (apoptosis) is imminent. If ceramide is low, the cell is strong in its aliveness.



Very simply, when THC connects to the CB1 or CB2 cannabinoid receptor site on the
cancer cell, it causes an increase in ceramide synthesis which drives cell death. A normal healthy cell does not produce ceramide in the presence of THC, thus is not affected by the cannabinoid.
The cancer cell dies, not because of cytotoxic chemicals, but because of a tiny little shift in the mitochondria. Within most cells there is a cell nucleus, numerous
mitochondria (hundreds to thousands), and various other organelles in the cytoplasm. The purpose of the mitochondria is to produce energy (ATP) for cell use. As ceramide starts to accumulate, turning up the Sphingolipid Rheostat, it increases the mitochondrial membrane pore permeability to cytochrome c, a critical protein in energy synthesis. Cytochrome c is pushed out of the mitochondria, killing the source of energy for the cell.
Ceramide also causes genotoxic stress in the cancer cell nucleus generating a protein
called p53, whose job it is to disrupt calcium metabolism in the mitochondria. If this weren’t enough, ceramide disrupts the cellular lysosome, the cell’s digestive system that provides nutrients for all cell functions. Ceramide, and other sphingolipids, actively inhibit pro-survival pathways in the cell leaving no possibility at all of cancer cell survival.
The key to this process is the accumulation of ceramide in the system. is means
taking therapeutic amounts of THC, steadily, over a period of time, keeping metabolic
pressure on this cancer cell death pathway.
How did this pathway come to be? Why is it that the body can take a simple plant
enzyme and use it for profound healing in many di erent physiological systems? is
endocannabinoid system exists in all animals of creation, just waiting for it’s matched exocannabinoid activator.
This is amazing. Our own endocannabinoid system covers all cells and nerves; it is the messenger of information owing between our immune system and the central nervous
system (CNS). It is responsible for neuroprotection, and micro-manages the immune
system. is is the primary control system that maintains homeostasis; our well being.
Just out of curiosity, how does the work get done at the cellular level, and where does the body make the endocannabinoids? Here we see that endocannabinoids have their origin in nerve cells right at the synapse. When the body is compromised through illness or injury it calls desperately to the endocannabinoid system and directs the immune system to bring healing. If these homeostatic systems are weakened, it should be no surprise that exocannabinoids are therapeutic. It helps the body in the most natural way possible.
To see how this works we visualize the cannabinoid as a three dimensional molecule,
where one part of the molecule is configured to fit the nerve or immune cell receptor site just like a key in a lock. There are at least two types of cannabinoid receptor sites, CB1 (CNS) and CB2 (immune). In general CB1 gives us the buzz, and CB2 activates the immune system, but it’s much more complex than this. Both THC and anandamide activate both receptor sites. Other cannabinoids activate one or the other receptor sites. Among the strains of Cannabis, C. sativa tends toward the CB1 receptor, and C. indica tends toward CB2. So sativa is better for buzz, and indica is better for healing. Another factor here is that sativa is dominated by THC cannabinoids, and indica is predominately CBD (cannabidiol).
It is said that THC and CBD are biomimetic to anandamide, that is, the body can use
both interchangeably. Thus, when stress, injury, or illness demand more from endogenous anandamide than can be produced by the body, its mimetic exocannabinoids can rush to the rescue. If the stress is transitory, then the treatment can be transitory. If the demand is sustained, such as in cancer, then treatment needs to provide sustained pressure of the modulating agent on the homeostatic systems.
Typically CBD gravitates to the densely packed CB2 receptors in the spleen, home to
the body’s immune system. From there, immune cells seek out and destroy cancer cells.
Interestingly, it has been shown that THC and CBD cannabinoids have the ability to kill cancer cells directly without going through immune intermediaries. THC and CBD hijack the lipoxygenase pathway to directly inhibit tumor growth. As a side note, it has been discovered that CBD inhibits anandamide reuptake. is means that cannabidiol helps the body preserve its own natural endocannabinoid by inhibiting the enzyme that breaks down anandamide.
This brief survey touches lightly on a few essential concepts. Mostly I would like to
leave you in complete amazement that nature has designed the perfect medicine that ts
exactly with our own immune system of receptors and signaling metabolites to provide
perfect health all the time. It is my hope that my own prostate cancer dies out quickly in the face of intensive cannabis extract treatment currently in progress. The C-T Scan will tell the story next month.

Florida Medical Marijuana Health Center set to open in Boynton Beach

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - At the corner of 7th Street and Boynton Beach Boulevard sits a sign and a building that is gaining a lot of attention.

Rightfully so, says Robert Fronrath. Schedule an MMJ Appointment Now

“We believe we’re the first one of its kind in the state of Florida,” Fronrath says. “We’re gonna help people over the next couple of months that would’ve never even thought about coming into a facility like this.”

Fronrath is the owner of The Florida Medical Marijuana Health Center, which is currently hosting a yard sale until it opens its doors. 

When it does, however, he says you can’t get weed here, just knowledge. 

“We’re strictly a medical facility, we’re not a dispensary,” he says. “You’re going to come in, you’re going to consult with our people.” 


He says a doctor at the clinic will evaluate you, and based on whether or not your condition falls under the state law, provide you with a recommendation. 

From there, it’s up to the state to determine whether or not to issue you a medicinal marijuana card. 

“Seeing that it is close to Interstate 95, it seems like we’ll maybe have more people coming into Boynton Beach learning about this,” says Boynton Beach Mayor Steven B. Grant. 

He says the voters spoke loud and clear when they approved medical marijuana last November, but now it’s time for them to listen. 

“Some people don’t know the benefits and consequences of taking this type of medicine,” he says. 

The Palm Beach County Medical Society, which isn’t fully on board with the medical marijuana revolution, says take caution. 

Dr. Brent Schillenger said we just don’t know if marijuana is an effective treatment just yet.  

“The guidelines at this point for the actual use of it are in development so to speak," said Schillenger.

So, if you go to this clinic, or any other clinic or doctor, he says do your research.  “You really need to deal with a physician who has a lot of knowledge, who didn’t just take a weekend course. And the knowledge is evolving.”

There are still a few hurdles to jump through, such as licensing and cleanup, before the clinic opens to the public. 

Fronrath said he’s aiming to open the clinic on Oct. 23

Miami Fl Allows Medical Marijuana Dispensaries | Marijuana Doctors

Miami FL finally allows Medical Marijuana Dispensaries throughout the city to open, making it very easy to locate a "Pot Shop" near you. With the easy qualifications that are now available medical marijuana treatments have become common place with Miami residents looking to ease their pain, anxiety, and symptoms from a debilitating illness. The Medical Marijuana Doctors are also making good on the new laws, ensuring that patients can access this important medicine when they need it.

Now there is a big difference when choosing a doctor to get your cannabis from, many are trying to make a fortune by changing upwards of $500 for the initial visit and then $250 for the 90 day follow ups, which you will want since its the only way to refill your MMJ prescriptions. Then again other marijuana doctors are much more compassionate towards the patients in need, offering low initial fees like $89.00 and $89,00 for the 90 day follow ups. Still others throughout South Florida, like this Palm Beach Gardens Marijuana Doctor who is actually accepting most major insurance carriers to pay for the initial fees, not follow ups though. The federal government has made it impossible to operate the way we need to because they still insist that marijuana is a schedule 1 drug which is the same rating as heroin, 1 of Americas worst killers and seed to opioid addiction which is an epidemic across our great nation. But still we have made such progress from just 2 years ago, and are heading into a bright future for medical marijuana. Florida Dispensaries are getting to flourish throughout our state and within 5 years I believe that in Miami Fl and anywhere in Florida you will be able to buy recreational pot fully legal. We will have to wait to see on that one, but for now if you still need a medical marijuana card in Miami FL just let us know and we will connect you right away.

CBD Oil is No Longer Prohibited

 BREAKING NEWS: CBD NO LONGER BANNED BY WORLD ANTI DOPING AGENCY (WADA) IN 2018

Currently, all cannabinoids are prohibited in-competition by WADA. However, that is all about to change! The World Anti Doping Agency announced this Friday that CBD will no longer be banned from use in 2018. CBD, which is derived from hemp oil is one of many cannabinoids present inside hemp and stalk seed oil. These endocannabinoids interact within the body by pairing with CB1 or CB2 receptors.

“Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited,” WADA wrote on its website. “Synthetic cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic; however, cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may also contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance.” This new change to the schedule will impact athletic organizations worldwide. Athletes and other fitness professionals, if you’ve waited to try CBD, now is the time.

In 2016, When Nick Diaz was given a public warning by USADA, after he mentioned he was vaping “CBD oil.” The conversation about cannabis, instantly became a hot topic in the athletic community. Immediately announcing their investigation into Diaz’s admitted use of the substance, it was later confirmed he passed in-competition blood and urine samples prior to use of the vape pen.
