Weed back then in jamaica was predominantly sativa,which is high in thc....not cbd....so chances are it wouldnt have done anything in the way of treating his cancer if that was your point. These days sativa is classed as a landrace strain and some are getting very hard to find...colombian red/gold....hiland vietnamese blacks.....and such.Everything these days has been dutchified/bastardized for cash cropping,so most of the strains are indica based...which is higher in CBD...so maybe thats why the medical side of cannabis has been noticed more these days....more people using hi CBD strains and finding it helps whatever ails them?

Original weed had more of an equal amount of cdn/cbd to thc. its only recently the selective growing programs have produced super high thc strains.

But you are right that a sativa has traditionally slightly higher ratio of thc to cbn/cbd.

Thc oxidizes into cbn/cbd.

I thought cannabis / tobacco smokers you had a slightly reduced risk of lung cancer than tobacco smokers..

Happy days

Not saying it caused it but smoking weed certainly didn't cure it.


No one (worth their weight in salt) has EVER proclaimed "smoking" weed would have. Now try talking oils and there's a difference.

Just like you'll NEVER protect your liver from mushroom poisoning by just eating milk thistle the plant. But concentrate the milk thistle and it has been proven to save lives.

Just like concentrates of cannabis.

Please everyone STOP with the propoganda that people are claiming "smoking" pot cures cancer........

I met a guy recently who has cured cancer in his dogs nose... The medical establishments answer was to cut the nose off so he learned which strains to use made the oil and treated the dog and lo and behold it worked....not only worked but did so quickly and painlessly....

It is sad when pot is mentioned people automatically think stoner ....there are many benefits with pot and it doesn't have to be smoked........

S&F op love your with work

If they unlock the true healing powers of it, overnight the plant would become illegal. Can't have people healing themselves. Insurance companies would not be best pleased


Yes it would be nice if you could grow your own medicines

The plants were the pharma for our ancestors. They learned through trial and error, but certainly had thousands of years to get a lot of it right. Many of us would probably not be here had they not done all of that experimentation.

When I hear of people with cancer or those in otherwise great pain reap benefits from MJ, I am happy for them and consider what they say as useful information, especially if I should ever wind up in a predicament like that.

What about the anti convulsant/seizure properties of CBD.

Unique to cannabis no?


Yep, sure it has some unique properties like so many herbs.

It has its place, but it is being hyped as some kind of wonder herb cure everything make everything better herb.

To me Opium derived Morphine is a wonder drug. At the end of our lives when we are in severe pain morphine is such a deliverance. It is the ultimate pain killer, but with obvious side effects like addiction. Yet, for terminally ill people, it allows some real comfort when the pain has become so severe.

I was a little reactionary in my comment before, it sure has its place. I have used it over thirty years. The people who drank alcohol I know are in a lot worse shape physically than I am. I do over use it though. I do that because my life has been a mentally painful one. It is a very good gentle mental pain killer. I like how it adds a psychedelic edge to the imagination and thought processes.

Judgmental people who say it makes one lose cognitive ability, etc, are being deceived. My sensitivity is at an all time high really. My perception is very sharp. Compare that to an alcohol drinker user.

It is better that we get the facts straight though. Hard science is the best evidence of all.

I like your avatar. I am very rasta friendly, lol.




Hey thanks! Good response too, I can relate to the mental pain in some way, so I'm a supporter of all facets of cannabis.

Anyone who is rasta friendly is a friend of mine.

ETA: it should be pointed out inhaling is not the only way to ingest this flower, some seem to be missing the point.

I'll take that slightly reduced risk, thanks. lol.

I think most pot smokers smoke tobacco too, if not just to mix the two together.

well i am glad some cannabinoids aren't illegal or even covered under the usa analog act.

making them not illicit, nor mind altering, and fair game for this site.

CBD oil is legal in Europe you can buy it on Amazon. There is nothing mind altering and it's not psychoactive which is why it's legal in Europe so we should be ok discussing CBD.
I bought some for my mum and she uses it when she feels stressed, I also bought it for the medicinal properties.
My sister bought some, she suffers from panic attacks during the night (Not night terrors) but since she started taking it she has not had a recurrence. The only downside for her is the hazy/tiredness in the morning from it but those are things she is better equipped to deal with.

In school, we learned about the endocrine immune system.......

However, it's really the cannabinoid endocrine system

I thought our president would have rescheduled it but he didn't. If they would then it could be researched by the gov but they cant because of its scheduling. Its the cbd oil that is what works, Im not sue smoking it works as well for certain illnesses. It is very expensive here.
